|Family / Re: End That Friendship Before It Ends You. by OgeAgbo: 4:34am On Jan 17|
I never asked you to stop having friends. I rather asked that you be careful in choosing and keeping friends.
|Family / Save A Life. by OgeAgbo: 8:55pm On Jan 16|
These days, when people complain about their issues and problems, we all see it as just cruise and fail to check on that person.
People use their status and timelines to communicate their emotions and feelings because some of them have no idea who to actually trust or like in my case, do not want to bother anybody with their problems as everyone has theirs.
Tonight, it hit me really hard when I saw a friend post about how she needed money. She also dropped her account details on her status but of course, people saw it as cruise. Sadly, menogetshisi.
When I was struggling with suicidal thoughts, I bottled everything up because I didn't want to bother anybody. I could have died and people would go about talking about how suicide isn't an option but what have you done to help a broken person?
Sometimes, people do not need your money. Your kind words and show of affection mean a lot to people. A lot more than you know.
Everyone has problems, each person's lesser than the others. But what if we all come together as humans and offer the little bit we have to save someone?
A person posts about needing therapy and calls it cruise. Another complains about being broke but calls it cruise. You see such things and ignore because the person tagged it cruise.
People hide under the word "cruise" these days to hide so much. Even if it bears the tag "cruise", ask questions.
You don't want to live in guilt knowing you could have saved a life in your own little way.
Do your bit and help save humanity.
|Family / End That Friendship Before It Ends You. by OgeAgbo: 3:13pm On Jan 16|
Many times, people talk about cutting off friends but when they do so, other people come out to say how they are being proud.
Pride actually lies in doing what makes you happy and more of a better person than doing that which destroys and negates your life.
A soldier served in the Nigerian army for thirty five years before his retirement. Following his retirement, he left the barracks to his village. Less than a month later, he was reported dead.
He had gone out with "friends" to drink and make merry but one of those friends ended his life. He might have or might not have seen the signs of enmity in that friendship but he chose to ignore. They were his friends, after all.
Another girl caught her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend and she was left heartbroken. She told people who cared to listen that she always doubted the relationship between her friend and boyfriend but she ignored it.
There are many stories of how friends have destroyed each other.
There are good people out there but till you find those good people, protect yourself by avoiding the bad ones. Learn to enjoy your own company.
If you do not end that friendship when you notice signs, the friendship will end you.
Before anything else, peace of mind matters a lot. Your life before that friendship.
