A lot of modern religious institutions have beliefs that strongly disagree with others, and there is hardly tolerance knowing I don’t belief in what you do.
Its not wrong to have different beliefs but when your belief dosent preach tolerance to others that is when it becomes a problem.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
Talking about neatness for the surface wiring @aezolase and @samson There are modern ways surface wiring is easily done that even adds beauty to the environment its placed, it dosent Iook so clumsy like it used to be.
But I would go with the conduit wiring it is safer for wires to be hidden in the ceiling than exposed in the house.
<span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>Especially houses where small children are its very dangerous sometimes they play to rough and you never know what can happen. </span>
The conduit is better for me if it develops problem. Well what are electricians for I would contact one to help me fix it.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
@talklessthinkmore remember the amnesty granted to the boko haram suspects, of which might have been given death sentences if they where caught.
I agree fully with you fugitives should be giving the chance to turn thierselves in it could help reduce the number of fugitives roaming the streets.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
A practical example anytime i go for a swim I always gnash my teeth once am out of the water,
Especially when it is cold. Gnashing of teeth can be caused by cold, when you are cold you easily gnash your teeth.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
@aezolase i don’t fully agree that the strongest change is in the hand of the teacher/tutor there are lots of beliefs teachers try to inculcate in students but they disagree because of thier strong family teachings.
I had a classmate in primary school who would strongly disagree to whatever a teacher said that is contrary to her daddy’s teaching.
There is this popular story I usually hear of a teacher teaching his class that it was a whale that swallowed Jonah (of the bible) and one of his pupil argued strongly that her dad thaught her whales couldn’t swallow, saying thier troats where to narrow to accommodate and successfuly swallow an entire human(which is true) but the teacher insisted and the girl refused and she decided she was going to ask Jonah when she goes to heaven.
I don’t really know how true the story is, but it is complete proof that if you play a good role by strongly teaching and convincing your children. Thier teachers would find it difficult to mislead them. They would even be cautious not to say anything wrong because they are aware that the parents have enlightened thier children aready.
Its not best to live your children at the mercy of teachers, some of them can be very wrong advisers, I had a teacher that thought me it would be good for same sex marriage to be legalized in Nigeria, and even stated benefits. But I already had a very strong orientation at home from my dad so I didn’t even give it a thought.
Teachers are good but don’t let them have your children’s heart make your children trust you better.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
At university of Jo’s students had to pay 5000naira each for a protest held against increment of fees, wich they vandalized things.
Now thestudents had to pay even the innocent ones, its implications would always boomerang one way or the other. Vandalism is a dangerous one. Even the vandalization of oil pipes in the Niger delta, that would cause fire outbreaks and other problems in the communities. Vandalization is not the best and it should be stoppedThoughtful Comments: 0.
“Once beaten twice shy” I agree with @femi sometimes we learn from our mistakes and try to be more cautios next time.
It mustn’t be ours sometimes is that of a friend or family, but all thesame its not easy to just see things normal when we pass trough certain experiences its only normal that we adapt.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
Having close rappor with the few people in your life is important, show them how much you love them and how much you care, with every chance you get.
Friends,family, colics, etc you would be doing more than you think, I had a friend that got so depressed, and I didn’t know, when she was right under my nose.
When I realised I felt badand it taught me that your daily conversations are not enough. Sometimes you need to get into deep conversations and help where you can.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
There are certain cultures when it comes to burials that are just unreasonable, how can 300k be part of a culture, what if the family dosent have it to pay, does it mean they wouldn’t bury thier mumThoughtful Comments: 0.
I have a book in my house “Where there is no doctor” it simply aids in some self medication tips, if the doctor is not available and the patient is getting worse what do you do? You can’t always rely on external help, sometimes they might even be free but give excuses.
Its good to be aware of some self medication tips to help in emergency cases having books like the aforementioned would help a lot.
And also first aid boxes with proper orientation on the usage is another good way of self medication. Self medication is only harmful when you are totally ignorant and still decide to prescribe.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
“Pension” after you retire they make it look like a favour, when it is your money. Although there is a new method now where the pension organizations deduct a specific amount monthly from your salary and save for you till you retire.
And when you do your money is paid immediately that is a better method to avoid all these pension wahala.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
Of words should fail, then leave it that way don’t force it,
you would end up saying something under the influence of your emotions then (joy or anger,)which you might come to regret so its best you keep calm take a deep and silent breath,
probably get a place to sit if you standing, have a quick rethink about the issue before you can now say something.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
Social media is a way of sharing to the world, we definetly can’t share everything. We most times look for the most important and relevant ones to paint a preety picture about our life.
<span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>I Don’t see anything wrong with taking your relationship to social networks. Its a way of telling others: hey back off this one is taken!! </span>
<span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>It’s not a bad thing but its not necessary to post every progress of your relationship you never know who means well or not..</span>Thoughtful Comments: 10. 10 (interesting)
But I think there should be a balance In the first one. Teach your children how to be rich if you can and also educate them to be happy, and show them why money is not everything.
There was a series of books I read while growing up.
“The rich also cry” very eye opening I must say. Give them books like this to read it would go a long way..Thoughtful Comments: 0.
This is one of the power gifted to man tge power of freedom.
The concept of freedom all lies’ in the power of choice freedom is the power to make choices by yourself with or without any external influence.
Its a dangerous one to contain and we can easily unconsciously abuse it. Sometimes I do wish I was not given some of the freedom I am entitled to.
Its important to set limits and principles to our freedom for us not to abuse it.Thoughtful Comments: 0.
