Be Yourself No Matter What They Say

JelousyConstant jealousy makes one very ugly, when actually you are beautiful.

One thing about life is, whatever you do, people will always gossip, criticize or talk about you. Someone can hate you, because you are good in something, someone can hate you, because of your religion, someone can hate you, because of the color of your skin, someone can hate you, because of your sexual preference, above someone can hate for being honest.

In whatever situation you may find yourself, just be yourself, no matter what they say. Unfortunately, many can’t stand hatred, so they quickly throw in the towel, to please those brood of vipers intimidating and terrorizing them. That’s a big mistake. Never try to please anyone in life, because greed doesn’t allow people to be satisfied in life.

Life is very hard. The only people who really live are those who are harder than life itself,”  says Egyptian author Nawal El Sadaawi. Would you succumb to alcohol because the problems are too tough to handle? Or will live in perpetual darkness and depression because someone hates you?

There is only one medicine that heals and kills your enemy. That is laughter. Apart from being good for your health, your enemy cries when he sees you laughing. Remember in life, never ever try to please anyone. Kindness is very good, but please avoid too much kindness, because some kindness may give you a lot of worries.

With each year passing, the world is becoming increasingly dangerous, overrun with dishonest politicians, hypocrites and criminals. Everyone has the right to choose his own destiny. If you want to be one of them, you can join them, but please don’t hate anyone because he wants to live true, clean and pure, else you’ll damage your health with hatred and jealousy.

Black History: Once Upon A Time In America

Years after slavery, African-Americans are still struggling to be real Americans

Elizabeth Ann Eckford, a student, and a key figure at the Little Rock Central High School is pictured being followed, booed and yelled at by a mob of whites. She was among the group of the nine African-American students famous for having desegregated the school in 1957. A closer look at the lady on the right, you can see the chilling, unreasonable dislike in her eyes. This reflects on the history of Apartheid Education in America.

In the deep sea, the big fish has no sympathy for the helpless small fish. They intimidate the small ones and always try to eat them up. That was once the hostile situation in America years back, in every sector, including the educational sector, against African-Americans. 

It’s very embarrassing to see such images in America, a country that  believes in democracy, above all they say: In God We Trust.

The more disturbing factor is, America provided  a “safe haven” in the United States for Nazis criminals and their collaborators after World War II, yet subjected African-Americans to abuse, discrimination, lynching, experimentation, and slavery.

Abolition of slavery is a fact recorded in history, but the reality is, it still exists in many places around the globe, including America today because we live in a violent and corrupt society.

How many years now did America start fighting against an illegal drug entering its sovereignty? Because of corruption, the country is plagued by cocaine and other dangerous drugs, drastically taking its toll on many citizens.

There was a time, if you are an honest hard worker, with distinguished achievements in the society, you will be awarded, but now those who commit serious crimes against humanity are those that receive that awards, including the Nobel Prize. Among the ring of liars, if you want to remain different and live in truth, you will eventually become an enemy.

Do you feel this world is okay? Are you happy about the turmoil and the path of doom the world has taken? Why politicians fighting for power when they don’t have any means to save this world? Nothing in this world seems to be going better or doing well. Everything has taken the wrong path.

Whether Africans were used as Guinea pigs in testing drugs, whether Aids, Ebola, Lassa and other deadly diseases, were bio-weapons against Africans to depopulate the continent, or whether African-Americans were used for experimentation, the Black man has survived today. That power wasn’t strong enough to wipe out the black race.

Black history is a sad song and a rough road. Even though it’s like an image hanging on the wall, the Black man should change that sad song to a happy song and straighten up that rough road ahead of him. We should let go hatred, jealousy, racism, racial discrimination and hypocrisy to embrace love in our community.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” —I Corinthians 13:4-8a.

Your Enemy Gets Mad, If He Fails To See You The Way He Wants

Enemy 5

No one gives birth to a child and name him or her ‘Enemy,’ thus; I haven’t met anyone yet called ‘Enemy.’ Yet an enemy exists, the reason the dictionary defines it: As a person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.

What causes enmity between people? I watched a program of a man that hates his neighbour. According to him, his neighbour’s stereo was too noisy and many times when he asks him to reduce the volume he refuses to yield to his demand.

I understand him, especially after the week’s hard work, you wish to have a happy and quiet lovely weekend, reading your favourite books and newspapers, but that neighbour of yours has denied you all those good moments you’re longing for.

At times you might be an enemy or someone might hate you for doing no wrong, just because of your efforts to live a happy life. Do you know that your hard work can sometimes spark jealousy and hatred from an empire of deceitful enemies?

Do you know that even your successful marriage sometimes makes you an enemy, because your neighbour’s marriage is on the rocks? How do you handle such situations when you haven’t done anything wrong but someone madly hates you?

I do hear people often say: The problem was beyond my control, the reason I used food as a means of consolation, became an alcoholic or drug addict. That’s really a big mistake. When you’re experiencing problems, you don’t live on destructive measures to solve your problems, you need to fight those destructive elements.

Years back when I arrived in Europe, among other foreigners, I came to Italy at a time I don’t know anyone. I slept at the Central Train Station in Rome for many days. (I have revisited Rome to see where I slept in the early nineties) I saw that the hard conditions were taking its toll on some of the homeless Africans.

Some became alcoholics, drug addicts, involved in drug trafficking and some decided to go back to Africa. I encouraged them to stay but many of them returned to Africa. Today, I’m no more an illegal immigrant. Above all, I live with my wife and three children in Europe. I wake up every morning at 5 AM and go to work like other workers, enjoying happy union with my family when I’m come at back home.

I know what the enemy wants. I wasn’t ready to be a destitute, alcoholic, drug addict or courier. If I have made it, then you can. Never blame anyone for your failure in life. Don’t let your enemy be happy. Fight those destructive forces to make them mad.

Child Neglect relates to failure to provide a child’s basic needs. In Europe and America, there are organizations that assist in solving such problems or taking care of neglected children. In many parts of Africa, the story is entirely different. This is an emotional, touching and inspirational story of a young boy who finds himself in a similar situation.

Kumbe finds himself in a hostile environment, as a victim of divorce and neglect. An environment he witnesses the suffering and hustling his mother goes through to feed him. He was unhappy because his father was neglecting his family, spending his fortune on other women. He sees his adolescence as a struggle to win the support of his father.

At school, he was among the best students. This gives him inspiration to fight to educate himself. In a confused society, Kumbe spends a better part of his life visiting the library, reading and studying. Despite daily horrendous life he passes through, Kumbe excels to be an outstanding journalist and writer, attached to the president of his native country, Ghana, with enormous enthusiasm and optimism. However, in his lifetime as a famous journalist, his fame gives him nothing but hatred, jealousy and blackmail from an empire of deceitful enemies.

He stands strong and firm, destined to fight the cruel charismatic power of those forces haunting him. But they are stronger than him. Despite his wife’s moral and material support, Kumbe surrenders and dies mysteriously. Who and what killed him? “The Writer Died” is a truly remarkable book of hard life experience of child neglect, an indispensable and inspiring book for anyone that may find himself in a similar situation.

The writer tries to define, measure, classify, and understand what child neglect is like in Africa.

Are You A Victim Of Hate? Don’t Worry Be Happy

Happy 7

Hatred, jealousy, loving, backstabbing, gossiping etc, are all part of the aspects of human life. Even though to be a victim of hate or finding yourself in a center of hatred, especially when you have done anything wrong, can be very disturbing, one should always consider him/herself lucky when someone hates you. This sounds stupid isn’t it? You will later find out how your happiness kills your enemies without your knowledge.

In the first place ask yourself: Why this person does hate me? What does he or she wants from me? What have I done to him or her to deserve this? Knowing perfectly well that you haven’t done anything wrong to deserve what you are going, will give answers to your questions.

The reason may be that: You’ve got something special and unique. This may be your intelligence, personality, beauty, dressing, humbleness, success etc; which that person wants or wish to take them away from you but all seems impossible.

However, why do you need to be happy when going through such life difficulties? When someone is tormenting your life and you easily begin to show your weakness and the effect on you, the person becomes very happy indeed. It makes him or her feel that she is driving you insane.

Happy 10

Once you show that weakness, that’s when he/she will continue with his or her plans to make you more miserable. But when she sees you happy, that automatically kills her appetite to continue with her devilish plans to harm you. Frankly speaking, there is nothing which kills someone who hates you more than to see you smiling, laughing or happy.

I believe that Jesus Christ, as a great teacher knew this, the reason he said “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

Why It Is Very Easy For Many To Follow Wrong People

As a young boy at school, as stupid and naive most of our school teachers were, we were thought to believe that the White man is nearer to God, the reason they have manufactured planes, ships, guns, rockets and all sophisticated modern comforts to serve the needs of man. I was even forced to believe that the White man is sincere than an African.

Till now in Africa, Africans don’t trust and many times speak ill against themselves: “Black man, Black sense, A White man would always help you, but a jealous African will always try to pull you down,” statements that have no ample of truth in Europe. God only knows the problems, hate, jealousy and bitter experience I’ve passed through in Belgium, as I struggle to build my career and future as a writer. However, I will always respect and thank all those genuine White people who have helped me build my career in Europe as an author in diverse ways.

I would have been a very famous author with a record of theft, if I had gone to the supermarket to steal bread to eat as a hungry man, because that’s what the media waits to happen but that’s not going to happen until my death. During the Apartheid era in South Africa, “The White man always like to keep the Black man standing at the touchline to watch the game they were playing, because they think they can do everything by themselves,” said the Late Steve Biko, the father of Black Consciousness Movement.

Ellory 7

R J Ellory

If I hadn’t been to Europe, I wouldn’t have known that the White man lies. Everyone has talent and ambition, the question is, if you want the world to know what you have got, how do you go about it? The first White man to do this, the first White man to do that, are all that we often read about. It’s rare to read the first Black man who did this and that. The challenge and burning ambition for many to achieve something positive in the society have led them to cheat, deviating completely from the path of truth.

Today I am going to write about two greatest ‘White Cheats’ in the world. In his professional career as a cyclist Lance Armstrong is now known as the world’s biggest liar. After denying cheating for more than a decade, Armstrong finally gave up his fight against cheating and lies, totally disappointing his fans and followers. Why do people always follow liars and cheats but a truthful person has no follower?

It is always easy for people to follow wrong people, because the followers have no vision. If one has vision, it would be easy to find out or discover a genuine achievement or a false person. I am a writer gradually making my presence felt in the publishing industry, I would therefore like to take another liar from the publishing industry for an example. If you are a writer or author you may know RJ Ellory. He still lives, so I will call him a fantastic liar.

Cheating ‘Bestselling, award-winning’ crime author R.J. Ellory was caught faking Amazon reviews for both his own books and the books of his competitors. Ellory was caught writing fake Amazon reviews by fellow author Jeremy Duns, according to ABC News. Such an act is dubbed “sock-puppeting,” or writing anonymous online reviews praising one’s own work. RJ Ellory sold millions of books under false reviews, while readers without vision acknowledged him as one of the world’s greatest writers.

There are many genuine writers with good stories, because they aren’t cheating, no one knows them or classifies them as good writers or authors. They don’t even have enough followers on Twitter or Facebook, because we are in a world liars and cheats are easily accepted in the society, because they often appear on the television,

“To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds. Daniel 1:17. If you lack wisdom, knowledge and vision to identify a cheat ask God for one, if you don’t believe in God, cultivate the talent to identify a genuine person from a false one, before following them, because the disgrace that falls on them, falls on you as well.
