    Human beings are totally different from each other. No matter how identical twins could be, they can never have the same finger  print. As our faces are different, so are our lifestyle, problems, talents, gifts etc are uniquely different.

    There’s a mistake which we make often and should be corrected quickly, the mistake of wishing or striving to be someone else. We feel weigh down and go as worst as asking God why he didn’t create us exactly like that particular person. Forgetting there’s a reason for your existence on earth, forgetting we all have different races to run, we can’t run the race of someone else leaving ours behind. The time wasted in being someone else should be wisely spent working and improving ourselves for the best. God has a reason he created us differently, Our differences is actually our beauty, we all have different aspect of lives we are expert at, when we come together being unique individually things works out perfectly.

    For instance, we have people specialised in different aspects of life, we have our doctors, our musicians, our writers and poets, our footballers, our business men, our teachers etc, you’ll agree with me that’s indeed it’s true beauty and things works out well, but imagine if we all are struggling to be doctors, whether its your calling or not, there’ll be fire on the mountain.

    No one on earth deserves to be treated unfairly and taken for granted, no one except God knows the content of tomorrow. You never can tell who he/she could become in the nearest future.

    Regards and respect moves hand to hand. It should be given to everyone and anyone, both outside and mostly inside a relationship. In a relationship regards, respect and commitment should be the pillar standing it. Being respectful and having a good sense of regards as an individual could take you to an entirely different level in life that even you won’t expect.

    Humility also plays a big role in respects and regards. A proud person is never respectful and has no regard for people, he feels he has it all so therefore would lack respect for everyone forgetting he’s no future teller. It’s far better to be a poor but decent and well behaved person than to have the whole world but still lack simple etiquette and courtesy because at the end of the day, respect, humility, regards etc counts much more than wealtg

    Fair fights, quarrels, disagreements etc for me though strengthens a particular relationship. It makes it even more sweeter and better than before. But it becomes an issue when they fight all the time. Fair fights occurs when individuals in relationship are trying to air their view on a particular issue and when clearly understood and resolved maturely, there’s a lesson to learn. Mistakes are natural, they are meant to be made, but when it occurs frequently and is ignored, both parties suffers. So it’s better they are pointed out and treated fairly and maturely even if it result to fights and quarrels, it’s no problem as long as the message has been passed across than to die gradually in silence all in the name of pleasing each other and avoiding problems.

    There’s no other joy in a relationship than the joy experienced when couples overcome their short comings and love and understand their selves better than before.

    As a growing child, I always thought crying was a sign of weakness. I would always laugh when I see someone cry, having the mentally that men do not cry, little did I know this tears shed is a way of letting things slide. It is a measure of determining the strength of a person. I never realised that after one cries, when he stands, he stands better and stronger.  No man on earth is an island, we need each other to learn from, to gain strength from, to enjoy with. So the idea of doing things yourself always should be minimized, it shouldn’t be totally diminished, they’re certain things that could be  done properly by you and only you, no one else but that doesn’t mean we don’t need each other. When you’ve been offended or weighed down, cry loud but once the last tear falls down, stand up and be stronger than before. A very interesting topic you got there

    We weren’t sent here on earth to please anyone, so if one think I’ll kill myself just to be approved by him/her, please don’t be broken hearted when I do otherwise. Though trying our possible best to put smiles on our loved one and even strangers a times is very nice and expected of us, after all it was a commandment giving by our Lord Jesus to love our neighbour just as we love ourselves, but still everything in life has its limits

    Also, you have just one life to live, so live it happily and adventurously. Have fun proving to people who actually thought you couldn’t do a particular thing, people who see and thinks of you as a good for nothing. Never take anything too serious,when things are taken too seriously, we get over emotional and bring in unnecessary problems in us(anxiety, sleepless nights, over reactions etc). Play like a child always, even when it’s time to be serious, work hard but PLAY HARDER!, It has its psychological benefits on us, the mind of a free person is a mind of an achiever. They sat life isn’t a bed of rose, but it actually could, if we see it that way and live it to the fullest

    Life doesn’t always present our heart desires so easily, things do not always work according to our plan or dream. We are tired and disappointed and weighed down when things doesn’t work according to our accords  But giving up? Not at all.

    In everyone success story, there is a point of trial and tribulation, there is a point of total disappointment and heart aching events, but if this stages weren’t passed without patience, perseverance and a passion, success would never be achieved. No cross, no crown. So in order to enjoy success, be prepared to work hard and face problems without giving up.

    In essence, never be tired, learn and practice new ways to tackle or to pursue a particular dream, trust me there are thousands and millions of ways to get to the peak of your dream, but if all done and things aren’t still working so good, switching to another different aspect of life isn’t so bad after all we are embedded with great and unique talents which is of great help if well discovered. Giving up for me is like saying all hope is lost, you’re finished and also, thinking nothing good can ever come out of you.

    Friday, the best day of the week, TGIF indeed. Well mine is “science is the study of living things and non living things”. The first and simplest definition of science I was taught in primary one precisely. Lol, too simple to not to forget.

    Behind every successful man, is a woman as his back up. Women play a big and vital role in the success of we men whether we like it or not. Keeping our woman happy and always feeling fly should be a normal thing to be done. When a God fearing lady is always happy with her spouse, it’s a big advantage to us because she wouldn’t rest till she sees you smile too by giving you necessary advises at tips in tackling a particular problem. The time spent on criticising and looking down on a women should rather be spent on believing in her and her dreams, loving her and making her happy. I love this post dear. I learnt a lot

    We all came differently, we weren’t born the same time, our fate or destiny are definitely not the same, and so is our faith. People have different ways in living their life so it’s better working and understanding yourself than looking on others imperfections. But at the same time, it wouldn’t be so bad if you keep others on the right track whenever they go astray, the journey to heaven isn’t a one man’s race, it could be better achieved when we work together, but if you’ve made efforts and people give you negative response, let them be and focus on your life. Nice post

    Tribalism is one of the major reason hindering our growth as a nation. The fact is we shouldn’t judge a person becomes he comes from a particular tribe, a book isn’t judge by its cover, but by the content which could be life changing. We are one, traditions, religion, culture, shouldn’t be a barrier. If we want to move forward together to greater  height, it is done by working together as one family, not by selecting or by favouritism, it does more harm than good

    Nice write up brother, sometimes we waste precious time keeping malice with our selves, looking for ways to hurt someone just because he hurt you, we waste our precious and God’s giving time on gossips, back  biting, spreading rumours and envy forgetting that these things add no value in our life, they are total waste of time. Instead of using our time irrelevantly, we should use that same time to forgive when we’re hurt, to apologise when we are at fault, to love our neighbour just as we love ourselves and to make peace when needs be. This gives values and makes us better humans and saves our time in moving ahead in life. It’s not so easy, but practice makes perfect, and the good thing is that these attributes, values and good behaviours are free to access. Thank you

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I try to discover and learn to see the good side of every anxious moment. Anxiety is a event which must come our way as humans, we have a nature of worrying too much. But when fear comes, we should learn to find reasons to be happy and brave because no problem, no fear is above us, the ball is in our court. So we are in every authority to over come anxiety. In anxious moment, I try to have fun dealing with them because it will come and must go, it won’t last forever. And again try not to take things too serious or emotional, it gives room for anxiety</p>

    The life of a soldier is discipline indeed. They are a lot to learn from their way of life. The challenges and training they under go everyday of their lives isn’t an easy one. That’s why they hate indiscipline and misconducts a lot, I totally respect them. But there’s just something I don’t seem to get about them, the fact that they slap or punish or beat up people they see wearing their clothes…………. Rooms for clarifications please, thank you
