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.

My Name Is Savage, But I am Not Savage

Big Joe 5“Whatever happens to me benefits me.” – Joel Savage

Why many do ask me if ‘Savage’ is my real name? Once a British woman told me she hates her name ‘Mrs Ball’ and worst of all, my father’s name is ‘Mr. Underworld,’  she said. Yes, many of us have strange names. Some do change and others keep them.

I was born Joel Savage, at Cape Coast, in the central region of Ghana, on January 19, 1957, to Justin Savage, a professional journalist and Nancy-Elizabeth Hudson, an accomplished seamstress and a sewing teacher.

Last year, during my summer holidays in Barcelona, Spain, I gave one of my books to a student I met at the hotel I lodged. At the computer hall, I was flabbergasted when I saw his friends laughing at my name. I pretended I wasn’t listening to their conversation.

Then on January 1, 2016, history repeats itself. At the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, when ready to board my flight, an officer at the last checkpoint controlled my passport and the only question he threw at me is: How do you pronounce this word? Pointing directly to the name, “Savage,” I answered.

“Well, I’m glad that you mentioned it yourself, because I thought that may provoke you if I had said the same thing.” He said and gave back my passport to me.

If names have impact on people, then I am exceptional. I am happily married since 1993 and still live with the same woman. If I’m savage, uncivilized, cruel or a beast, my wife wouldn’t have been with me today. My three sons can stand behind me and tell everyone how caring and compassionate their father is.

What I know about myself is, I have intrepid sort of character. I don’t give up and no one can break me down physically, psychologically, emotionally or spiritually. In my life, I take any misfortune as beneficial and every problem as a challenge, because you can’t survive in this world if you submit to problems.

This is the reason many people are depressed, alcoholics or drug addicts. Because they don’t have the will power to fight and overcome those destructive tendencies. Savage is just a name but it has no influence on me. I believe in God and the Bible is my shield and Armour.

10 Reasons Never Wish To Be A Celebrity

winona 3

Actress Winona Ryder, stole over $5,000 worth of designer clothing and accessories at the Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001, despite all the fame and ‘success.’

Here comes a celebrity in a glamorous dress, she wants to fly, yet she has no wings. The hungry paparazzi follow them where ever they go. Their names make the headlines in newspapers and faces appear on the television every time. That’s great, isn’t it? And you wished to be one of them, isn’t it? You can only taste a food before discovering how delicious or sour it tastes because aroma or sweet scent can be deceiving.

Life is tough, so everyone wants to be successful, thus; many wish to be someone. Be careful what you wish for. If you haven’t been to someone’s farm before, you may think your farm is the biggest. No matter the weight of the problem, when hearing someone’story, you’ll know that your problem is just as small as an ant or the tip of the iceberg.

Be content with what you have. Don’t be deceived. Who feels it knows it. Many smiles behind suffering and live above their means, but your comfort, success, and happiness, lie in your own hands. Below are ten reasons never wish to be a celebrity.

  1. Due to the thirst for fame and the desire to do something no other celebrity has done, they end up putting on degrading clothes they called it modern fashion.
  2. Many abuses the precious dignity of women by attending functions without underwear and they called it “Women Empowerment.”
  3. Many live beyond their means, buying expensive jewels, cars, houses etc; then later cry at home when running financially dry. Those in that situation often end up in shoplifting scandals.
  4. Most celebrities live in debt. The result is restlessness and lack of sleep.
  5. Many can’t handle fame, thus; they end up as drug addicts and alcoholics and often against the law.
  6. Some celebrities end up at rehabilitation centers, hospital, and many commit suicide.
  7. Some date so many men and women to the extent that, by the time they are serious to settle and get married, nobody wants them, because they have misused their bodies.
  8. When many are bored, they take naked pictures of themselves and post it on social platforms.
  9. The fear of lacking behind in something or being forgotten by fans haunts them; therefore many do stupid things to attract media attention.
  10. Only a few celebrities acknowledge God’s presence, as the omnipotent and depend on the gospel for salvation. Because of fame and pride, many think God doesn’t exist and everything he or she owns comes from their effort.

There is nothing better than aiming high, following your dreams to be successful in whatever you want to achieve, but when pursuing that career, create a good name and inspire other people to follow you, because after your departure from this world, the seed you’ve sown, is what people would talk about. Would that seed be good or a bad one?

Beware Of The Pedophile That Lurks In The Community To Harm Your Child.

Joel Savage Jr.

Give them an inch, they take a yard, give them a yard; they take a mile, that’s how the world goes from bad to worse daily without any solution. There is no doubt, we are now living in a very dangerous world, as children being kidnapped and falling victims to pedophiles. The question is: How often do we speak to our children about those threatening dangers?

As a father with three children, nothing scares me more than the future of my children, especially my third son who is just eight. Europe is a good place, in regard to education, but very bad on moral issues. Here the law permits a child to have a boyfriend or girlfriend at the age of sixteen. A child begins to smoke while at school. Such things do not exist in Africa.

My wife feels bad sometimes because we don’t have a daughter. Yes; I feel sad sometimes because I don’t have a daughter, however; sometimes, I am very happy to have three sons without any girl, because it is very difficult to raise your daughter in Europe as an African. Consumed by the Western life, nothing keeps them sober or obedient. I know many Africans who couldn’t handle the outrageous character of their daughters, sometimes ending up as a problem to the police and the social offices.

Violence, crime and immorality are some of the disturbing issues parents are concerned. In the neighbourhood lurks paedophile trying to harm your children. The news we read pertaining the crime adults, especially men, commit against children, immediately aware our consciousness that probably the world is gradually coming to an end, because the prophesies in the Bible are taking place one after another.

The European Commission showed a 77 per cent increase in murders, robberies, assaults and sexual offences in the UK, since Labour came to power. The total number of violent offences recorded compared to population is higher than any other country in Europe, as well as America, Canada, Australia and South Africa. This is the information I gathered during my study over crime in Europe recently.

Parents are the greatest influence on their children. Children learn to talk, walk, and interact by watching their parents. As a child grows up, he or she looks to the parents to provide guidance, information, nurturing, and expectations. I once went on the internet showing death of many children to Little Joe, my son. After watching in bewilderment, he asked “Papa what happened to them?”

“Adults they trust killed them,” I answered.

“Thank you Papa, I will be careful.’ He said. Whether I did a wrong thing or not, that doesn’t bother me, all what I want him to understand is the dangers in this world, especially on the computer for him to be careful.

Antwerp Now Free From Dogs’ Waste Explosion

Can animals take away their own waste?

A dog cleans up own Poop. Can that teach the animal a lesson to do it at the right place?

Antwerp is one of the famous cities in Belgium, not only because The Port of Antwerp is one of the busiest port in the world, with over 150,000 people daily handling operations, but it used to be one of the dirtiest cities, with dogs waste at every corner, pavements and sometimes in front of shops.

Be careful when walking in Antwerp decade ago, trust me, you will surely come home with a stinking unfriendly guest. Dog’s Poop. The situation became worst as dog owners don’t care to clean up the mess when they walk with their dogs until the authorities came up with “Dog walkers without ‘poop bags’ face fines.”

Today, I can assure you that the rule which came into existence has cut down on the problem of fouling in the city. There are more major changes under the administration of the present Mayor Of Antwerp, the NV-A party leader Bart De Wever, that makes the city more enjoyable.

Here is an article written in Spanish over the same problem: LA CIUDAD CON MAS MIERDAS DE PERRO

The Monster Inside Of My Bed

Originally posted at Wattpad by makeandoffer.

Who has a right to judge what is normal? For 18 year old Maria Valentino it was her parents, it was her friends and it was the doctors who decided that she was no longer stable for the outside world. No one questioned that the man who put her in a mental institution for eight months was in fact a violent drunk, because unlike Maria people thought he was normal.

Bed 1

No one questioned that her friends bullied their classmates on a daily basis to stay at the top of the social ladder, because that was normal.

The only time people started asking questions was when Maria finally snapped.

Then, she meets Mason Riley. Charming, handsome and confident. He was like a slap back to reality, and for the first time in years Maria finally felt like she was back in normality.

The only problem was that she met Mason when she was admitted to The Ledge Mental Institution. He had been bouncing from hospital to hospital since he was 12 years old, somewhere along the way the doctors branded him a Sociopath. That would explain the charm, his exceptional knack at manipulation and the remorse that he lacks to feel.

Yet, even with all of that Maria finds herself believing that Mason might actually be one of the most normal aspects of her life, because after all sanity is best judged by those who lack it.

That’s what he keeps telling her, and she almost started to believe him. Almo
