If you get so bent out of shape that you forget who you are, at least don’t forget who God is.
Scriptures say that they that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits, stay strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
If things don’t work out this time, who knows, they could work out the next time, and if this particular endeavour still yields nothing, don’t get mad, don’t get mad at God, don’t be mad at yourself, this heavenly Father knows how to make it up to you, and He will.
So go back out there, don’t quit, put your make up on, get your hair ready, face the world, look straight in the mirror and remind yourself of whose daughter/son you are.
In many African communities, girls are still not considered children. They do not need to be sent to school, they have no inheritance and sometimes their mother is sent away for not being able to bear a male child. As if boys are better. Words will fail me to recount all the episodes we have had, for being just girls, at the time.
African students gave us their best, now we are giving them our best. The mentorship program of the #SHIPCampaign seeks to link our top 5 winners with very established and prominent professionals in Nigeria/Africa to enable a mentor-protege relationship for growth and personal development, especially career-wise.
To be part of it please look out cos in February 2018, the scholarships will rollout again
Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you winners, thank you judges, thank you mentors 🙂
Fear and Pride both go before a fall, be understanding and patient enough to tell the difference. People rashly mistake FEAR 4 PRIDE. Someone who walks away or refuses to show up to have his work analysed or criticized would easily be mistaken for being proud. Many times too when you delay an apology, people conclude that you are proud, when in fact you’re scared of being rejected.
A lot more thought should go into our human relationships, people are not simple, babies are. Life makes us complex so be more curious about why people act the way they do. To lead, mentor, be a good parent, guardian or just friend, you should try to use the other perspective. Although some reactions are pretty obvious, even anger can be an expression of fear! relax…take it easy 🙂
