Act your age

I recently went for a program. I had a few secondary school girls seated in front of me. They were so self-conscious. Body tingling. Constantly adjusting their dresses and trying to sit pretty. Turns out I could relate. I couldn’t stop smiling at their acts. At that age, I always felt as though I was under scrutiny. All eyes on me. But as I grew older, I noticed that most people don’t give a damn. Nobody really cares as long as you’re not a nuisance to them at the time. But let’s say they even notice you, say like in this large crowd right now, you’re forgotten once the crowd is dispersed, and so are your formings. However, the few people who hope to have a lasting impression of you will actually approach you, especially with hopes to keep contact. If only they knew.

The salient lesson today is this, do what you should do at a particular age. If you refuse to, let it be on your own terms. So that when you see the younger generation doing it, pepper body no go come start o. Feel what you should feel at every point. So that you won’t try to undermine what people that age feel when you outgrow that age. Na so beef dey take start o.

I know what I’m saying o. E go pain you if you been no follow do o. But if you’d had your fill, you’ll only assume an advisory role. Every younger generation hopes for an adviser not a beefer.

    I once heard my boss said that e pain am say him no womanize when he was a guy…. And I was really shocked at such statement… To me that was bullshit.. Which means as at then he had no life pattern…. it only happened by chance…. Even before now I had this phrase “On my own terms…..” I think the conclusion to this is that everyone should make a choice on how to live…. As for me its in my own terms to live the way I do and I can’t beef any one for any sake when I get older. I can only regret not becoming a millionaire from age 18….Lol.

      Thank you very much Vic. The world would be rid of envy and jealousy and bitterness if everyone had this notion too. I stand with you on this. #livingdrightway
