THE PUSH AND PULL
Life’s pressures could be so dauntingly constant that you almost loss yourself in the process of your life’s journey. Every day you hear people who have gone further than you.
Someone you were in same class with in secondary school now has a car; some now have their own houses and good businesses. They have lives that they can boldly stand and talk about but you seem to be disappointing everyone around you.
No one is satisfied, you try to be everything for everyone and everyday you are falling short of their expectations. Well, pause, wait, “na this life the money dey, if you dey alive, you go make am”
Life is not a competition and everyone’s battlefield is different, some people’s adversaries are carrying swords, some are carrying knives and some are coming at them with wood.
We all have to fight different battles but everyone has to fight to conquer. That you are not all that you can be today is not a guarantee for you to kill yourself with worry and anxiety.
The pressure is real, people need us to perform; our mothers need us, our spouses need us and worst of all we need ourselves. But then you look at your life and see that you are disappointing everyone, even your own self.
What do you want to do about that? “My brother nor reason any person car ooo, nor look their house, d one way dem get na deir own” yours will be the latest when it arrives.
And perhaps, let your goal not be the cars and the houses. Aim higher, darling, if you have breathe in your lungs, God on your side, zeal to work and wisdom to direct you, then you can’t fail. No devil can stop you, so stop all this worrying and keep your eyes on the ball.
There is no shame in setting the bar low, if you set it low today and you accomplish it, it will build your morale and tomorrow you will feel confident to aim a little higher. “Life na jeje, everybody carry deir load, nor come use their own take wound ursef”
Put the pressure on pause, let worry get on its own journey elsewhere, leave anxiety to get away from you. Tomorrow is coming, yes, you have to prepare but if you are not sitting idle, if you are not relenting on praying, working and believing, then, you will make it.
The ones who have gotten further than you; the ones who are now married, the ones who are richer, more famous, more accomplished, give God praise for their lives, felicitate for their achievements, have no grudge or disdain for them.
Even if their attitude have now been influenced by their new statues. “na their own be that, when baba God done do your own for you, nor carry dem for belle”
Pressure can pull and pressure can as well push, don’t allow it pull you, instead let it push you to where you need to be, soon you will become your mother’s pride, your spouse will be grateful that he/she didn’t leave you and your friends will be desperately seeking for your attention. It will happen.
Admit the struggle but never let the pain win…
