Hey people,I presume it's been a good week so far? Work isn't so stressful out here so life is beautiful as usual.
As humans,we are faced with so many challenges and how we react is what differentiates the winners from the weak ones.We're humans,so we're not perfect.I have seen people lose their ways.I've even been a victim at some point.I know a man who was a very stand up guy.He was the definition of responsible (in the Nigerian context).He didn't smoke,drink or chase after other women.He didn't like illegal dealings.Even when he was in politics,he didn't take bribes or joined to 'share the money' with his political party.However,these didn't pay off for years and he got weary.He started drinking and smoking and doing other stuffs that he wasn't doing.He lost his way.I know of another man who was very responsible.He got employed into an organization where illegal deals were a norm and got caught up in the deals.Somewhere in there is that part that was responsible,but he's lost his way.I know of a boy (he's quite close to me) who was a good boy till he got admitted into one of the private universities and started doing drugs and moving around with bad boys.I believed he ought to know better,but then again,that's just my belief.He has lost his way.
We get caught up in various things and thus lose our way at one point or another.However,it doesn't make us monsters or useless or unreliable or unreasonable or irresponsible.On the contrary,it makes us human.But,the fact that we get lost doesn't mean we should remain in the lost path.We owe it to ourselves and those who love us to try to find our way back.I remember when i changed from who i used to be to something i never thought i'd be.I strove to retrace my steps and went back to who i was.So,the truth is we are humans and are liable to make mistakes and lose our way,but we shouldn't remain lost.If you're lost,do find your way back! There's always a reason for being on the right part,don't ever forget that.
