Stop hurting, keep walking

Yesterday I was discussing with a client how some past terrible relationships are hindering me from being selfless and going all out for new partners. I shared a particular experience with her and she laughed hysterically, “I have been there. I tried to stop being nice and kind but it only reduced my creativity. I stopped loving myself because I ... Read More »

Friendship: Standards and Sacrifices

Last night my brother told me, Constant communication will strengthen a relationship (friendship) but worthy sacrifices will take it farther. The first thought that popped into my mind was, it doesn’t matter how strong a bond appears, if it doesn’t last then it is merely a facade of loyalty built on deceit.

Selfless comes after self

There’s a Yoruba adage that translates, “the world will make a mockery of whom they carved you into today, tomorrow.” It is a solemn reminder that no matter how much love you have for people, self-love comes first.

Roseline

Lust will get you where love will protect you from. I met her at the lowest point of her emotional trauma and I felt pity for her. That wasn’t what caught my attention initially; it was how beautiful she was outside. Imagine a Chidinma Ekile face on a Shakira body; I swear I am not exaggerating. “Roseline, that’s my name.” ...

Love and Consequences

Anyone who claims to love must be willing to live with the consequences. I am talking about true love, the limitless point of unconditional sacrifices and unexplainable bond. My past relationships ended tragically; some too quick and sudden, others an absolute waste of my time. My greatest weakness is allowing myself to be used. These guys aren’t loyal. My friends ...
