In a way, you read this title and thought of your current rejection story, you remembered a time you were rejected or anticipating a result and you are already planning your mind towards rejection. I wish to write about “dealing with rejection” in two series. First will be about the work-life rejection while the next will centre around love-life.
The word rejection itself stirs fear and breeds low self esteem. It dampens the mind of her host and makes the bravest and most courageous of them all fall to tears or a low morale. …
To the youth of our time.
According to a documentary before time, far long before this perfectly shaped and positioned planet called earth was occupied by all creeping and flying being, there was One who existed before time. His origin is untraceable, location uncrackable, capacity unmatchable. He created and exist in a universe He Himself is not bounded by. He is not pressured by time cause He is a determiner of times and season. The sun we struggle to approach for many years because of its blazing heat are His eyes. His feet rooted in the earth as His crown…
Anti- “resist the urge to shalaye” campaign.
This article is not supposed to follow any literature structure or grammatical perfection in writing.
— This is a message.
— This is a Voice.
For the benefit of those who don’t know what the word “Shalaye” means, it is a Yoruba word which translates to mean “explain”.
“Refuse the urge to shalaye” should be one of the wrongest campaign we have had in this woke generation. Birthed nothing but depression, pressure, suicidal thoughts, suicide itself, death and a whole lot more. While the foolish think they are wise by not explaining briefly…
The hardest things to do.
Clothed with apparels only found in the 7th dimension of heaven, with wings coated in diamonds, glittering at your every turn. Your submissive and positive responses make you the best person created on earth. You are the perfect angel, shining with the brightest light in the galaxy crowned with a rotating automatic yes to their every task but, you become the darkest demon the moment your “yes” turns to a “no”. You become a werewolf with the darkest furs, your gaze will disgust them. your existence as a whole will seem as a threat to…
We may never know until we let loose.
From birth till death, the society has through many years of perfection, built a culture and mental notion in the minds of all that co-exist on earth certain ways, manners, principles, guide, norms, values and beliefs on how to and how not to live. It has always been to exemplify what is to be referred to as “normal”. …
An enemy amongst Humanity
“Spoken in diverse languages, various accents, tones, pitches; accompanied with short precise expressions to intensify and pass a message, body movements as an expression of art, rolling of the eyes (fondly in African countries), sometimes voiceless with reiterated signs, some inaudible sound from the use of one’s nose which could mean many things based on the situation at hand (try saying 'hmn hnm’ several times and picture different scenarios).”
All these are what have been used to body shame victims.
A compulsory guide for the 21st generation.
Hollup — wait a minute — it’s Charpa...
“Perspective” is everything.
Just like the above phrase, How did you read the title? What were your interpretation to the title? What were your expectations?
Hence, while some felt insulted by the title (How to have sense), others smirked, some genuinely went gaga knowing fully well they will laugh till the end, while some certain “somes” couldn’t wait to launch into this write-up because they will learn a life hack here also. Either ways, you are welcome to another series of your favorite sarcastic write-ups.
“Stretched-out lines, bruises, tattoo- like marks, skin cuts, increased aggressive behaviors, temper misplacements, mental health disorder, and a host of others are the gift of education and a delusional culture passed on from ancestral parenting to our modern day parents.”
“If you don’t read your book (179 pages, terms that are hard to pronounce and still looks like a lot of adult words, calculations that need adult guiding, etc) finish before I come back, you will see what I will do to you: as usual, lash you with my original leather belt, instruct you to stand on one finger with…
It is okay if you can’t relate.
May be it’s just me, or the way I sleep, or just may be I need to change my bed.
It has always been like this ever since I came of age.
Parents wake you up forcefully at early hours of the day to enjoin you on a compulsory prayer session; we call it morning devotions.
You stagger from your bed to the living room like one who just finished a crate of vodka. I only imagine how God sees us pray in the morning. …
