Love is a beautiful thing. In my language, they say “love is a temptation”. Don’t ask me, I still can’t relate but for those who believe love comes with ups and downs, I still can’t relate. Life has ups and downs but not love except we do certain things that trigger change in behavior which affects love’s long-suffering. Otherwise, love is love, constant and even grows if nurtured.
I can’t imagine a love that doesn’t care or manifests or gives most especially. The capacity in which these things are expressed is what qualifies a person as a lover, not by mere words of “I love you”. … More If you were the opposite sex, would you be happy to be loved the way you are loving your partner now?

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”
I was watching Laura Ikeji’s dance post on Instagram the other day and my thoughts were not coordinated at first. A woman loves to showcase her children and celebrate her love for them, regardless of the amazing love she had or has for her husband from the beginning of their relationship. So if the woman is celebrating herself and her children, who is celebrating the husband? … More Women have been told they are their man’s better half. But what does that really mean?
While everyone else seem to be socializing, lively and having fun, your precious introvert may just be hanging at the back of the room and watching everyone else unwind. They often appear disinterested or bored but if they’re among friends, odds are, they’re having a great time, just taking it all in and enjoying be present. Introverts are great people watchers and intent listeners. So that’s probably where those serious faces come from. So if something fun comes up, don’t automatically assume your introvert partner’s constant answer to every invite to socializing or having fun is a turn down. They can also be the life of the party. You just have to know and understand how they are. Saturday is for socializing. Sunday is for sleeping. Many introverts start to get cranky and unsteady when they have too much socializing to do for too many days in a row. They need rest. Their time alone has nothing to do loving you any less than you love them. … More Understanding & Loving Your Introvert Partner
Instead of restricting the talents and silencing the opinions of fresh minds, instead of overprotecting and guiding on same paths that go nowhere, we can maybe let the young ones live a little, make their own mistakes and trust that they will learn better from their own mistakes. All minds are not equal, one that is academically inclined might not be good with anything else and the other who is inclined in other gifted areas may not be academically. Learn to observe, listen and nurture the seed that is deposited for the benefit of the community in your child. … More Nigeria @ 57: Empowerment & Succession
