RANT: WHY DO WE SAY THESE THINGS?
1." The devil you know is better than the angel you don't know".
Help me understand how the devil can ever be better than the angel. This saying has killed people for nothing.Why are you even knowing a devil in the first place. I understand what the saying means but people are taking it quite literally now. In fact they don't even bother to seek for better, they have given up on "angels" completely. They have accepted that they deserve a "devil" because angels can't be found.
Today I pray for you that this saying will not suck out your common sense from you.
2. "Men are babies". How!!! Why is that statement used when they are trying to excuse men's indiscretions and then when they are trying to remind you of submission they say "you know he is a man na" . Why the confusion? It is appalling because this is a saying championed by women. One thing I know for sure is that babies can't make babies.
Today I pray for you that you shall not marry a pikin.
3. "You will give birth like the Hebrew woman". Well done ma! Please don't pray baseless ,unscriptural prayer for me biko. Everything I have seen in the Bible about labour didn't make it easy.
Today I pray that you would remember that you are a Nigerian woman and not choose to change citizenship to being a Hebrew woman when labour kicks in.
Sooo Aunty just wakes me up w/some lov'n n slips in "Igho, this your hair, it's so beautiful...nothing like the ram-shackled ones I see..but..how I wish you would cut it so you can find a husband" I laughed, gave her the face on the right & said "they're finding me Aunty, I just don't like anything they have to say" #thingsNigerianssay#sheainteenknowit#doilookworried#iwakeuplikethis#feelingmyself G'morning!
