“I know what I got myself into, but at the same time, I wanted to do the right thing and walk, walk away. I am not a monster. I really wish I never met him. I told him that many times because it was just, just like, what’s the point?” Karim said.

He always surprises me and I re-fall in love with Him every single time. In my worst moments, like awful, most painful moments – I never stopped falling to my knees wanting and needing only His love. See the enemy keeps trying to tear me down and it’s just not gonna happen. Not today. Not the next…” Selena Gomez wrote.
