Hope you are doing well.
My weekend started out great, as I had an amazing Friday night. 🎉 but, here comes the but at the end of the day there was an uproar over a new bill signed by the medical council. I won’t go into details as that is not really the point 🦋.
The points are ;
Whilst others made me happy, organizing farewell parties, meetings and sleepovers, another set of people thought it was a great time to taunt me 😌.. LOL,
I received messages like “Na mumu dey read 6-7 year course” , “shebi you be wan cash out, no more money for you o”, “FG don say una no be doctors yet o”, “700 level loading for you”. Goes on and on 😌, most individuals will send you such messages as a “joke” but I am firmly against hurtful jokes (topic for Wednesday). I responded to these messages with it is well and changed the topic.
Shame to the devil as , he came late 😌, Prior to the messages I had already made some prayer request to my church and was prayed for . The requests stating that I needed strength to balance and adjust to this new chapter of life, to the uncertainties , I needed to be able to handle the questions thrown at me about my career and life in general.
Amidst all, I want to tell you today to be positive about your life . I am not the best person to preach this message,as I overthink things a lot.
However, I am learning;
- To stop complaining
- To stop crying victim
- To stop making excuses
- To look for the rainbow in every storm
- To persevere
- To be kind to my mental health
- To apply minimum pressure on myself(well I have been doing this 🙃) I do not entertain stress.
- To not pass anxiety to others
- To not share negativity that might affect the mental health and being of others
In all things, if you cannot talk about a current matter or situation in the right way, if you do not have solutions , if you do not have a way of relieving anxiety and stress, please keep quiet .
Silence is also an action and it goes a long way .
Do not join others to pour sand inside your garri.
Protect your space.
Speak positively into your life .
Here is an old post, that encourages me. Hopefully it does same to you.
