Hey people,how have you y'all been? I know some of you are doing great cos i talk to you somewhat often.Thank God for the people who have succeeded in cajoling/getting me to join the Blackberry community,i now have access to some of you outside blogville and twitter.Lest i forget,thanks alot for the comments on my last post,i have resolved to adding a page to this one rather than creating a new blog for my poems.Majority of you who left comments were for a new page and so i also think it's wise to add a new page.
I was chatting with a friend this morning and she made me laugh,kinda.She wants to be in a relationship but doesn't want to sacrifice.From the little knowledge i have acquired on earth,i know it isn't possible to have a healthy relationship with any human without the certainty of a measure of sacrifice from the parties involved.We are different just as our names and faces are different.Everyone was raised differently and has different inhibitions,beliefs and all,so it's not possible for you to meet someone that is totally like you,not possible (in Ichie Nwosu's voice)! This is where sacrifice comes in.For instance,while i was in school,i had this friend who hated house chores,meanwhile his roommates didn't find it funny.He had to sacrifice because he realized there's always going to be dispute if he continues the way he was going.If you are in a relationship and you don't see the need to sacrifice,i assure you you'd be out of it in no time.I mean,we sometimes laugh,talk,dance,shout,etc when we don't feel like it,all in a bid to make that person we care about happy.As part of my growing process,i realized i became very composed.I mean,my house is always so neat that you don't see anything out of place.If i get back from work,i put everything in it's rightful place,regardless of whether i'm tired or not.I had a friend come spend a few days in my house because he had a seminar to attend in the city where i am.He came late so when we got to the house we just talked generally and slept.The next day,i got up early as usual and left for work,but when i got back,i realized he wasn't the kind of person i could stay with.But because he was a guest,i had to sacrifice my comfort so he won't feel unwelcome.Unmade bed,clothes haphazardly dropped,i was running mad in my head but hid my feelings just so i don't make him feel unwelcome.This was just someone who came to spend a few days.But there are people who are a part of our daily lives and their ways aren't like ours,but the love we have for them is the reason we'll consider sacrificing.Let me give you a story.A friend of mine was having issues with his gurlfriend and,as usual,i got involved in it.After hearing from both ends,i realized the issue was that she has male friends and he's not comfortable with it.He said he's spoken to her about it but she's not letting them go and so i asked him one question,do you love her? His answer was yes.So i told him to let her be.I told him she has the right to have friends who are guys as far as she stay faithful to him.I told him to sacrifice his feeling as regards that and just let her be.He did and right now they're doing good.She still has her male friends and he's pretending he doesn't know.
Finally,you sacrifice your time to visit this blog simply because you love me,you know you do so don't even front!!! Finally,finally,if you know the sacrifices our parents made just so we'd turn out the way we are now,you'd know the importance of sacrifice.Have a very pleasant day people.
