1. Nobody owns you anything this is perhaps the most important thing a true adult has come to terms with. Forget mummy, daddy, uncles and aunties. If you are waiting for them to set you up in life you may end up amounting to nothing. You are responsible for your success or failure in life. Those who quickly come to terms with this are usually the success stories in our society not those who keep crying and fighting all their well to do relatives that have refused to help them.

2. School and degree are OVER rated my younge?r brother is a drop-out but today he works with a media company and guess what? He is one of the lead designers of the budweiser Advertisements being rolled out this 2018 Fifa world cup. I have a friend holding a top possition in microsoft west africa that graduated with a 3rd class from Futa. The examples goes on and on. What really matters is what you can actually do not your certificate. Be good at one thing and be really really good at it. That is what matters not your useless best graduating student bragging rights that does not help anybody. If you have a first class good, but make sure you are also a first class when it comes to practical not just theoretical la cram la pour first class


3[b] Sex is over rated [/b] i broke up with a very pretty lady, spotless, fair and elegant lady, one of my boys went crazy wondering why i shld break up with such a lady. He claims he would forgive such a lady no matter what she does to him. Lol. You get to an age when pretty ladies means nothing to you anymore. I am still young but trust me

4 Loyalty is everything all you want in a friend and from family is absolute loyalty. You begin to realize that many you think are friends and family are your enemies who dont have your interest who would bad mouth you when you are absent. You need loyal friends as an adult not a crowd.

5 most things are packaging and lies from church to your colleagues at work to the news to government to relationships. We live in a fake world filled with fake people. Dont get carried away and dont try to be like other people.


6 Common sense is not common this is pretty self explanatory. dont expect too much from people so you wont be disappointed. Many times you expect people to behave matured and responsibly, they fail.

it is unfortunate because we wish they are not true. Would it not be nice if people actually cared to ensure you are successful? Wont it actually be nice if degrees and certificates actually equals to success? Wont it be nice that sex we crave as teenagers were not so over rated by young ladies and men? Wont it be nice if the news, politics etc all around us are not so full of lies? It is actually unfortunate you dont know what you are talking about while trying to sound smart.

* Getting angry is a waste of time.

* Silence is the mother which breeds intelligence.

* Never trust nobody not even a God, Don't even trust your first perception, it's always a prejudice of the brain.

* No such thing as friends, it's a leeching scheme wearing a mask of acquaintance.

* Self preservation is the only motivation.

*Marriage is only sacred only to those who has never been married.

*Love relationship without money is a betrayal waiting to happen.

Well, I was wrong to think that "adults" have come to terms with these things and that for the most part we at the very least appreciate the irony in them, but hey, fingers and equality right?

So unfortunate undecided

Every person you meet in your life is temporary.

Your friends are with you for a reason

There’s always someone better than you and someone worse than you

Life is not always fair

What other people think of you is none of your business.


And finally

Praying is a waste of time

*Time wasted, cannot be regained for it is precious.

*Always trust your gut feeling. It's like a sixth sense that's never recognised.

*The word "friendship" is overrated cos everyone has some degree of SELFishness in them. Be wise.

*Constant disappointments and heartbreaks could be avoided if you learn not to expect anything from anyone.

*Expecting everyone to like you is like attempting to climb Mount Everest without climbing gears & expecting to make it to the summit. It's never possible.
