A page from my diary•••

2020 has been gruesome; it has been bloody, unkind, and unfair; it is a year that has shined a light into the cruelty in humans, as well as their vulnerability. 

“It is not a year that has come to cure the darkness around us or in us; instead, it has come to remind some of us to rise above this darkness. Unlike light, which is essentially light, darkness is heavy, and this year has been heavy”

We must do the best we can to shake this darkness off before it holds us and tie us to the ground. We must do our best to Erase this darkness day by day and allow the light to shine through us.

Merry Christmas ♡︎

The Church has failed—

The Church continues to fail women when it comes to marriage—the Church teaches women to be submissive and how to satisfy their spouse in the bedroom and so forth but fails to address abuse and domestic violence in a marriage—God hates divorce, they say, but does God likes abusive marriage? Pray and do your womanly duties as God has said and leave the rest to God, they say, when a woman is being abused in marriage. Don’t get me wrong; some men do get abused in marriage, but it is primarily women who are abused—especially Christian women, which is due to what is preached in the church regarding marriage.

To my godly women of God, if God hates divorce; He sure disapproves of any form of abuse—Jehovah has blessed us with so much Grace and Wisdom being His children—unfortunately, so many of God’s children are perishing due to ignorance and poor teachings from the Church—It doesn’t please God for any of His children to suffer or endure any pain out of ignorance—

There’s a reason why some people are oddly caring or sincere in their ways—why they are incredibly kind. There’s a reason why some people love so unconditionally and are so forgiving—there’s a reason why some people are so enduring—maybe they see the world differently than others, or they may have experienced the impact of not being loved, not being forgiven, or kind to—or perhaps they’re just born to be kind, sincere, endure and love unconditionally— or possibly being the other version of themselves might be harmful to their cause—

Give More—

Remember, being Kind is not always going to make life easier for you~ Caring for others isn’t going to bring you happiness all the time— Sometimes, caring can bring unhappiness; it can cause discomfort in our lives because often, the ones we’re caring for do not make it easy for us to be kind~ But that shouldn’t stop us from offering kindness; we should instead give more if we’re able to—

Be Gentle~

”If you can be anything, be Kind”—

During my clinical hours, I met a patient who made me love what I do and why I chose my career field. My supervisor and I were talking to a patient, and she looked down at my feet & said: “I like your shoes, by the way, it’s one of a kind.” I said thank you to her (p.s: my shoe/sandals is a comfortable fit, but I won’t say it’s pretty sandals ).

We continued to talk, and she said again, “Life is too hard; what I don’t understand is why it’s easy for some people and so hard for others.” she made this statement looking at me (P.s: She’s a young lady with mental illness). Looking at me, she probably thought life was easy for me. I felt sad, and after the meeting, I went back to my office and broke down.

Her statement made me realize how lucky I am; even though I may be experiencing some discomfort in my life, it is not as difficult as what she is experiencing. Perhaps she realized she may never recover from her diagnosis because there’s no cure for her.

Every day, my prayers and hope are that I’ll make a difference in the lives of the people I work with, especially my clients, in every little way that I can.
Life is difficult, but for some people, it is more challenging; the least you can do is be KIND

Remember, also, that this month marks the beginning of the holiday season, and holidays can be challenging moments for some people; be kinder—pay attention to your surroundings—be a little tolerable if you don’t understand why someone’s behaving in a particular way—be more loving, offer help if you can—tread gently~

What will Jesus Do?!


—Being a Christian means emulating the life of Jesus~ it means living the life that Jesus lived— loving one another, correcting in love, accepting, forgiving, interceeding, spreading the word, forbearing, showing compassion, etc.; these and many Jesus did, which we ought to do or at least imitate— Yet we choose and pick when we must act like Jesus~ Oh you hypocrites and servants of the flesh!

Someone who has a mental illness can still smile, laugh, go to work or school. They may say they’re fine••• the point is, sometimes mental illness is invisible•••, and sometimes people struggling with mental illness will choose to talk to the voices in their head more than talking to people about their struggles due to fear of being judged and the labels associated with mental illness•••
Be Gentle

Namaste—



Some people are born with these qualities: Empathy, Compassion, Love, and Gracefulness…no matter who they are or where they are in life, rich or poor, able or disabled, you can find these attributes in them… Some people aren’t born with it, yet they learn or are taught. While it is easy for some to learn these qualities, others struggle to learn…The reason why some people struggle to learn these qualities is because of their intentions behind it…So, before you learn, ask yourself why it essential for you to be kind, show empathy, or love? If you can’t answer these questions, you can’t learn them or show them—

Many of us are servants of God, and that’s not enough; we must desire to become friends with God, not just servants. When you’re friends with someone, you’re loyal to each other, and you share secrets; that’s how our relationship with God must be.

God called Abraham “His friend” because Abraham was loyal to God, and when God was about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, He thought about His friendship with Abraham (Genesis 18:16-33). The Lord God considered Abraham a friend enough to reveal His plans against Sodom and Gomorrah and even gave Abraham the chance to plead on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah.

We must yearn for such a relationship with God if we want to understand who God is, for Him to reveal His plans to us; we must seek to go deeper into the realms of His secret place. The first step is being loyal to God—

Unfortunately, some of us can’t even be loyal to ourselves, let alone friends!
Oh, Mercy!!
We must try!
For Heaven’s sake, we must do better—

#LetsTalkAboutInsecurity!

One thing that can destroy a person is not able to believe in themselves••• Insecurity has become a disease affecting many lives, and we don’t talk enough about it•••It is a contributing factor to depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, eating disorders, and substance use disorders, etc.

We all have something that we’re insecure about, but some people have it worse. For these people, they’re not able to live a normal lifestyle•••Most often people are shamed or blamed for feeling insecure; especially on social media•••but, we don’t think of what might have contributed to their insecurity•••

Before you judge someone for being insecure, consider what or who made them felt the need to be less satisfied in themselves•••Most people don’t just develop insecurity; something or someone might have been the cause of it•••Not everyone has a solid mental attitude to continue being optimistic when they’re being torn down. Eventually, some people do break down and don’t recover•••Instead of being hard on someone with insecurity; especially in relationships, try to be understanding, don’t add to their insecurity•••be patience with them while they learn to be confident in themselves again•••#handlewithcare
