How to Survive a Divorce

Remember your wedding day. You were so happy and looked forward to getting

much out of life. The days ahead looked so promising like a rosy pink garden

radiant with immense possibilities. You saw days filled with laughter and

nights filled with passion, never once allowing for the disquiet and

devastation that troubles you now. Divorce was merely something that happened

to others, except now it has also happened to you.

I don't know if one can truly get over a divorce like it did not happen. I

think rather that you mend partially, but the core wound remains. You have to

treat a divorce for what it truly is: a termination of relations. It is just

the same as a death in the family. You mourn the demise of a loved one,

likewise you should be sorrowful over the coming to a close of a marriage.

Divorce is a very unpleasant word. Mention the word divorce and you will cast

a depressive feeling on those it threatens. It is just as ugly and hurtful as

the feelings that brew and boil inside of you after it happens. Even in the

seemingly amicable of divorces, there is still that feeling of inadequacy, a

feeling of defeat and that feeling of finality when the papers are signed and

the marriage is legally declared "over." And that is because there is nothing

amicable about getting a divorce. A marriage that ends badly or savagely is

even harder to accomodate. It does not only leave you torn up, it destroys

part of your essence.  


Be sorrowful therefore. Permit yourself to recognize your own feelings so as

to keep your health of mind. Do not let anybody talk you out of it. Your

heart is broken , and you know it ! Let it all go. Cry your eyes out into

your pillow, grab your best friend, if you have any other one left, and turn

on the waterworks on her shoulder; but do let it go. Keeping it inside is not

normal. Vent your pains. If you would not cry, write in a journal then; or

sketch a tatoo on yourself. However you want to do it, those feelings of

misfortune and anguish have to come out to give way for the more positive

sensation to burst when you are ready to live again.

After you are done brooding, you might be set to move on to annoyance. After

a painful divorce rage is also a perfectly normal and healthy emotion to have.

Feel like kicking and screaming? Join a kick boxing class and wail and take

it out on a paid professional. You get buff while you vent, it's a totally

win-win situation! Why shouldn’t you be mad? That man stood before God,

friends and family and took an oath he would love you ‘til death would you

part. The last time you checked, neither of you were dead, so that means he

lied to you and that is not fair! You're right, it's not decent and you have

earned every right to be bitter.

Do you need counseling to survive a painful divorce? That is a personal

choice that only you can make. Some people would not go to friends and family

for succor but would feel safe telling their hurts to people they do not know.

 An unhappy reality today is that, some people cannot share their most

intimate pain with blood relations, but canlook up a stranger out of the

phone directory and lay themselves bare. And pay them to do it ! If that is

what you need to heal, then get on with it and do not listen to anyone else.

Talking will help, and any one could be listening.

A divorce ends your marriage, but it need not be the end of your life. If you

are open-minded you could even use it to your advantage. Your life is being

re-oriented already, why not take a good and honest look at yourself and do

a face-lift. How about those places you always wanted to travel to, and the

career you  wished you could swtch to? Well, your chance has come, the time

is now.? Was there a restaurant that you always wanted to try but could not

get your spouse interested in? Give it a try now,there is no one to stop you.

Sign up for classes at the local community college, or go whole hog and aim

for a degree. Go on-line, meet the world, do anything but keep going because

as dreadful as it seems right now, divorce is not the end of the whole world.

A Demand On Jonathan to Sprint against Time!

Everybody is asking Jonathan to do a miracle in less than 12 months. Why? Why was such demand not made on previous  presidents, like Chief Obasanjo. Not that there is something wrong in expecting someone to deliver good. But for heaven's sake most of the previous 13 heads of state and presidents were watched squandering our days and resources, yet nobody dared voice up!
Maybe it's something about Jonathan. Physically and by disposition, he does not seem to me to have that carriage of a president. And the man seems to have a very deep set attitude of 'yes sir-ism' about him. So they now see an errand boy president to push around. Not that our president is not our servant, no, but not in the sense they are carrying on about it. In fact, I see a lot of public people being reprimanded for over-stepping their bounds with regards to how they relate to the president in the coming months. So, you wise ass politicians, appointees and activists don't forget your place just because Jonathan is a simple man. He is the President, and the President of the land is to be honoured whether you like it or not.
Now back to the tall expectations of all the toms, dicks and harries so far expressed. Do not, just because you woke up yesterday to a faint awareness of what duty you think the leadership owes you, begin to ask for Rome to be built for you in a day! Nigeria is not coming to an end with this government. Lets just hope that your passion for asking, demanding, commenting, setting target for your leaders so fired up since the incapacitation of late Musa Y'ardua will not end when the general election comes and another set of stooges are imposed on us country-wide and you go docile and fall into slumber yet again, until maybe by next blue moon when another president you can treat anyhow and talk anyhow to comes along!
But you know how often it's been told you not to wait for the government to determine your economic fortune; now here's your chance to put all that into working. Tell me what you think about it. 


It All Begins With Fashion Styles: A Corrupt World Debating God's Standards

The world may have changed since the sixties but standards and values for sensible living need not necessarily change. A lot of people, young and old, are approaching life in a self-destructive way.

People should learn to naturally adopt a way of life that adds the best value to them. What am going to be proposing here might seem to most people prude, but I think that living a life in purity, health and peace of mind is not negotiable. If God be God; and everyone of us in our own way recognize that He is, and then we can not shy away from His recommended standards.

I went to a used-car sales outlet recently intending to have them take my Honda Accord saloon (1992) for sale. A girl, maybe eighteen, nineteen, twenty years tops; dressed as if for the slaughter trotted towards me. She was selling some brand of glucose packaged in cookie-size bits. She was definitely inappropriately dressed; although that is what today’s teens are known for. She wanted me to buy and I gave her no attention. But on a second thought, I decided to drill her.
Esther had trekked close to seven kilometers, stopping at all sorts of places like mechanic workshops, garages, construction sites etc till she got to this used car sales place. This she did in the terrible heat of the mid-day sun, thanks to global warming! Yet Esther had not figured out that the whole lot of what she was peddling was just worth about USD10. Therefore, it could be that she was selling something else on the side, dressed the way she was.
 I told her she ran the risk of being abused or raped because the people amongst whom she presented herself were generally uncouth. They may even just induce her; and being so seemingly in need of money, she might yield. Then she ends up getting STD or pregnant; but she would definitely have a fouled-up self esteem thereon. I told her whoever put her up to that task was merely using her and that there was not likely anything of real value in it for her. She took off.
Not long after Esther, another girl came; again peddling something, asking me to buy. Mary, what are you selling? The really good looking girl who carried about ten rolls of a locally made aloe vera based medicated toilet soap in an arm basket also said she’s been  attending one of our nation’s well known churches since three years. She too was young, but older than Esther. Maybe twenty to twenty three years. Though she dressed in girls clothing – a blouse and a lingerie skirt; everything she had on were skimpy and her chest was bare, to say the least. And she was out to sell soap worth, again very trivial. When I told her that I could not dare look below her face she didn’t get it. She too was being used to sell what is not that valuable, cheapening herself by what she was putting on. I was compelled to spell it out to her that her chest was naked! Instead of seeing the point, she maintained that she needed to make money and that I was rather discouraging her! And I ask, for how much was she risking compromising her young life full of beautiful possibilities yet?
A corrupt world debates the standards of God. Some relate with God with a shopping-basket-like attitude, they rationalize His prescription for life, taking what suits them and discarding those they find uncomfortable. Unfortunately, these rationalists are even turning from God altogether, turning to witchcraft and the occult as is happening in Germany right now! 
Where are we headed in the world today with the crass promiscuity being hawked everywhere one turns. Over here one cannot but notice that scarcely very few women actually now look good in regular women's dresses. Thanks to western culture. Orange sellers, bread sellers, whatever they are selling, wherever you turn every girl, every woman seem to just want to let you know they have bodies you can look at! And it's such a struggle staying in control. The world is not safe any more, not for those who want to remain pristine. 
The American people are most guilty in corrupting the world in this way, although a non-American city was once reputed to be the sin capital of the world. This is not an anti-American talk. In fact, we are all equally responsible for our choices in life. Today, the cinema has become a strong way to project a people’s way of life. And, if we take this so, nearly every film from the Americans builds free and unaccountable sex into it. And all the world is following suit. Violence and devaluing of human life too! Those who are committedly producing and marketing this poisonous trend to the world; liberals, I expect they’d say they are, could be intending to demystify sex and death.
Though, instead of demystifying sex and death, they have lost control; and the gullible ones in life don’t know where to draw the line. And take it from me, there are lots of people in the world who don’t use their minds – they live only by moves and waves of fads without giving thought to how it affects their lives. So,
·        Beautiful and would-have-been earth-shaking destinies are ruined right from the cradle as a result of free and uncensored sex or thoughtless and uncontrolled violent act that results in the maiming or death of fellow human beings.
·        Under-aged pregnancies, pregnancies out of wedlock, adultery, fornication, separation, estrangement and divorce are evils that corrupt the beautiful scents of would have-been-pure lives today.
·        The problem of broken marriages and homes has spread all over the world from this psyche of loose sex and violence. People enter into marriage and put it away as fast as they change their clothes; even some clothes, like mine, stay with their owners longer than some marriages last.
·        Children are brought into the world unto their fathers and mothers. This reassuring primordial provision for life is often denied most children resulting in waywardness and wrong choices as they grow up.  
·        What is the rational behind allowing pornographic websites to be on the net? They are cancerous, lazy, demeaning, an affront on our humanity as a whole. I know we may not be able to ban Satan from existing, but we don’t have to rent our property to him to live next door to us. Even to the so termed adults, this poison should be kept out of easy reach. I am often spammed by porno sites and I hate to imagine what it does to the psyche of the uncontaminated. The devils that run these sites are raping humanity and they should be stopped.
However, if the world keeps tolerating and celebrating what such elite men's club like 'Playboy' are doing, I suppose who am I to be talking?!
