A frenemy is a low life threatened by another. You can not be lukewarm. Be either hot or cold, a friend or an enemy. Some things have happened in the past months and i'm amazed at how "evil" people can be. How can you be someone's friend in her face and an enemy behind? That's a serious sign of a personality disorder. The most annoying is people that have guts to try and gossip about my friend with me. You will not "meet me at home" as I won't smile at all. Don't message me to gossip and especially not about my friend.
A couple is getting married, you're asking "what will they eat?" What is your business? Don't you think they, alongside their families, would have considered this? + it's not like they'll ask you for money or favours. Someone has a baby and you're asking "who gave her belle?" You're a guluma of heaven and earth. You actually know when people ask out of concern or when it's just pure aproko. It never occurs to some people to be happy for others. Romans 12:15 is a command. Stop wondering why you're not progressing or why the "joys" you receive seem like facades. Why would one's joy give you an headache or make you lose sleep? Drop that bitter, dirty mind today.
Sometimes it's hard to be rejoice with one who gets something you want, maybe you seemingly deserve it sef. I quickly got over this by taking my mind of the things I want, being happy, rejoicing with those that get them and prayerfully and patiently wait on God. I don't take it personal because it's God's headache and not mine. Psalm 55:22; 1st Peter 5:7. I do my part and leave his part for him. Moreover, they are wants and not needs. Rejoice with:
all those sending you wedding invitations.
co-workers getting promoted over you.
those moving to bigger houses and buying better cars.
family members having baby after baby when you are struggling to get pregnant.
those living their dreams.
those rejoicing because they have been given the very thing you have been hoping, praying, begging God to give you.
Blogging everyday, on my phone, is not easy. I have thought about stopping it several times in these few weeks. I got so many calls yesterday, i'm grateful. I'm officially sorry I didn't put anything up yesterday, I was tired. I got messages on facebook, bbm and twitter. Someone called asking to advertise on the blog. Am I ready for that? I can't even believe someone wants to pay me for this. I mentioned to a few people who think I'm silly for not saying yes to the offer. Maybe I am, maybe not. Another person called asking to publish some posts. I'm overwhelmed. Thanks for reading and the support. Bless your kind hearts. Hugs and kisses.
