An Exhortation To You Dear Friend – IFE OWOEYE


Ups and downs, life is not a bed of roses. For the fact that you are all well and happy now doesn’t imply that in the next 2 or 3 years, you won’t find yourself in a crossroad. The crossroad which I now find myself in. What do you do when you try but all seems futile? What do you do when you do but don’t? What do you do when you are constantly unsatisfied with life? What do you do when it seems like everyone is against you? What do you do when you are just TIRED? What do you do when you become tired of seeing the same or slightly different results all the time? What do you do when you don’t have a single hope anymore? What do you do when you just want to give up the ghost because at least it will all end? What do you do when even those who ought to be the closest to you don’t seem to get you? What do you do when you don’t understand yourself?

Dear friend, you can’t give up until it is over and it is not over until it is over. You have to shut up the mouths of your ever-gallant scorners at least. Determine to keep the ball rolling till God says it’s enough at least. You might not have any hope and all odds may seem to be against you but you just have to keep trying. I’m strong, yes I know I’m a strong woman. It hasn’t been anything near easy. In fact I wouldn’t be completely wrong if I said it has all been bad but the little signs of a better tomorrow I see keep me going because I know where I’m coming from. A place of deeper sorrow imaginable only pancaked with fake smiles and a denial of the truth. So I urge you my friend, when it seems like all is over, be thankful for the littlest of things like an improved smile from a close relation to staying a minute longer in situations you would have run out of and keep going.

I have the solution to all of your sleepless nights, never ending streams of tears, confusion, depression. So long as you do not give up on life, life cannot give up on you because it is really nothing but life. Your glorious future awaits you as a sure reward for your patience.
