I said I couldn’t do this anymore,
But everyone seemed to have a better opinion of my life, of the capacity of my strength,
But they have no idea of the courage I’ve had to put up through these smiles.
I begged that he would stop hitting me,
But everyone seemed to be so sure I must be doing something to provoke him,
But they have no idea what the pain and aches feel like at the end of the day. … More I’m at Peace
“If you love me, keep my commandment”.
Isn’t that what we all wish true love would mean or do for us? To appreciate love and the sacrifices made. To know that even while we are away, love still remembers and celebrates what was once a burning desire in our hearts.
Jesus Christ said, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” … More Empty Tomb
Is it necessary for couples or intending couples to have “the talk”? In most cases, adults just go with the flow, shying away from addressing a lot of topics even when they begin to affect their relationship in some ways. No one just really wants to talk about the ‘not-so-good’ things that may be affecting intimacy in the relationship. Everyone just somehow wants to be fine with where the relationship is. … More “The Talk”
Like living without caution.
As easy as it is to have a bad tire fixed
Is as liberating as it is to have a bad situation changed.
It’s a sweaty and draining evolution
Better a revolution than life imprisonment of one’s mind.
Refusing to live from word to thought
I want to act without overthinking
I want to live without looking back
I want to laugh without holding back
I want to love without regret.
I want to own tomorrow, to live truly … More Anxiety for the morrow

Some stories I’ve heard this week has shocked me to my very bone and the truth is, no one is really addressing these issues head on – practically. The African society makes it impossible to speak out as a woman and expect to get helpful responses to deal with these issues with useful advice. The Church makes it even worse for these things to be mentioned amongst us. But have we stopped to realize that in reality, most of us are not as spiritual as we want the society to believe we are? And men take advantage of this, knowing the society can only encourage or lead the woman on to keep hoping, be prayerful and patient. Are we actually looking at the situation from the perspective that we are only encouraging the men to be lazier and less responsible for their actions? Who is going to address the men to get off their butts and be real men? … More Who will address the ill that has found its’ way into the family?
Imagine a baby who can’t speak but cries for every want – cold, hot, hungry, sleepy, wants to play, wants to be picked up, fighting sleep and the likes. No matter how much we want to calm a crying baby, it’s usually frustrating after trying many things and the baby is still wailing. That’s how unappreciative lack of expression can be. Hence a sudden reaction or responses thereafter will not be as appreciated as a constructive self-expression. It doesn’t necessarily mean that every thought, even anger, ought to be communication as they are but communication makes effort and situations better understood and appreciated. … More Lack of Expression kills Appreciation
Sustaining respect during the course of a relationship takes effort. We are all human, and if someone begins to treat us negatively, inconsiderately, and disrespectfully, we often tend to respond in kind. The pattern of mutual disrespect actually feeds on itself. The more one partner is rude and inconsiderate, the more likely it is the other spouse or partner will behave in similar ways. … More Respect: A key to successful relationship
Even when it seems like everything is going wrong in your life, there is always something that’s going right. You owe it to yourself to find out what that is and bring it into your awareness. No one will love you if you do not love yourself. No one will make you happy if you do not radiate happiness. No one can give you confidence if you don’t feel self-worthy. It’s not a matter of someday. You can make that choice to drop that low spirit and strive to have a brighter and happier life, because the more you focus on the good stuff, the more good stuff you find. … More Celebrate Everyday!
