I remember when gaining admission into the University was still a problem. I had a besty that was lucky to gain admission before me. Whenever I went to visit him, the mother will tell me he is not at home. My besty started giving me attitude. He stopped coming to my house. I asked him what the problem was, he opened up and told me that the mother had Warned him to stop associating with me because I might not be happy he gained admission, while I was still at home.
Ah I cried Sha. Honestly I was pained.
Fast forward 5 years later, I have gained admission, and even graduated, my besty was still in the University. It was a 5 Years course but he changed department and ended up spending 6 Years.
The mother saw me in the neighborhood shortly after graduation and asked if I was on holiday. Holiday ke? MA I have graduated. You can imagine the look on her face. Epic. 😂
Some of us are guilty of this.
*When we have a house filled with kids…. Our loyal friend struggling to have kids becomes an enemy. We push them away
*Once we get married… Our loyal single friend becomes an enemy.. We push them away
*Once we get a job… Our loyal jobless friend becomes an enemy…. We push them away.
*Once we get to the top… Our loyal friends at the bottom becomes an enemy…. We push away.
*When we are happily married… Our loyal friend that is unfortunately a widow or divorcee becomes an enemy…. We push them away
*When we have food and water… Our loyal friend struggling to survive becomes an enemy… We push them away.
*Nobody is your enemy, you are only being an enemy to them
We quickly forget… Life is not static. It moves and changes
When you condemn a situation along with the person in the situation. You are only gambling.
At the end, the winner is always the person you condemned, the person you least expected.
