"don’t deprive yourself of this blessing.”
Anoushey Ashraf took part in an Instagram Q&A and she was asked about her career and personal life, whilst others asked her for advice for their situations.
One fan cheekily asked her to marry him so he could be her house husband.
Anoushey quipped back: “I am not rich enough to be your sugar mama. You have to get out there and work.
“Also, I’m looking for a husband at the moment. Send me your resume and I’ll pass the word around.”
Although there were many light-hearted questions asked, it soon took a sombre turn when one individual revealed they had moved to the UK but left their parents in Pakistan and due to this, they felt guilty.
Anoushey showed sympathy and replied:
“Oh no. This is a tough call and I’m sorry that you had to make this decision.
“In’Sha’Allah it is for the best. For you to do better for them and for you to do better for yourself and your family. Thank God for FaceTime.
“However, make sure you meet up at least a couple of times a year.
“As difficult as it is to be away from your parents, sometimes we have to make the best of the situation we have. Bless your parents!”
Anoushey Ashraf was asked if she ever felt lonely and how she dealt with feeling that way.
She stated that there was a stark difference between being alone and feeling lonely.
Anoushey expressed that everyone wished for a companion but if it hadn’t happened as yet there was no need to stress as these things happened in good time.
She advised her followers to have faith not to give up and commented:
“We all need to connect, don’t deprive yourself of this blessing.”
Another question was based on divorce and how there was a shortage of companionship in the world.
Anoushey stated that one must see oneself as their companion. She stated:
“According to your message, the only lack of companionship you’re experiencing me is your own. Give yourself a break post-relationship.
“Invest in time for yourself and love yourself instead of looking for the same from another person so soon.”
“We all have deep-rooted insecurities and sometimes look for love for all the wrong reasons.
“Work on yourself and re-evaluate where you are a few months down the road.
“There is so much fun in being single too, trust me. Be comfortable with yourself.
“Love will eventually find you when you stop selling yourself short.”
Anoushey Ashraf was asked for advice on how to deal with an interfering mother-in-law who showed jealousy and narcissistic behaviour.
Anoushey wished her husband was understanding and that he was creating boundaries in the relationship between his mother and wife.
She added: “Tell her nicely that you should stay courteous and kind but you cannot and will not let anyone who doesn’t bring good energy to your life be an integral part of it.
“I hope your husband is supportive of this decision because most men demand ‘you put up with my parents’ and you should.
“There shouldn’t be any disrespect, but there can be an honest conversation about how you can’t be emotionally invested in a relationship that does not help you grow.”
