Couple of years ago in Africa, a pastor living somewhere in my neighbourhood, claims he has powers to cure barrenness and other health problems. Many women with diverse problems, including those looking for children without success, teamed up in numbers, all hoping and trusting this pastor, whose heart was far from God, using the Bible to prey on women who weren’t aware of his devilish plans.
Love is strange and unpredictable, but relationship at work the right thing to do?
Have you heard that desperate people do desperate things? Actuated by a feeling of hopelessness, having an urgent need or finding yourself in desperate situations, what some people will do or go to the extreme lengths to get whatever they are looking for, will put you in a state of shock and bewilderment for the rest of your entire life, when you hear about it.
An ordained pastor serving God does what God requires of him, but this fake pastor was strong enough to tell each woman seeking for a ‘miraculous cure’ to have a baby, to remove their underwear. Like king Solomon sleeping with his concubines, the pastor defiled and had carnal knowledge with every woman that came to see him. Some of the women kept this ungodly act secret and those that thought he was a bad pastor told their husbands.
In the scotching sun, one hot afternoon, angry husbands stormed the premises of the false pastor with clubs and cutlasses. He peeped through the key hole of the door and saw angry men behind the door; trying to find their way into the room he had been committing his sins. I think that was the first time he had the vision to ask God what to do next. He opened the rear house window, jumped out and fled for his dear life. He was never seen again.
Women face different kinds of temptations daily in the society. The question is: Being a woman, what would you do when facing such temptations? For example, would you sleep with the boss of a company, who requests for sex before giving you the job of your dream or you will turn away from such a person? Reference: In 2010, the US-based Center For Work Life-Policy found that 15 per cent of women, even at executive level or above, admitted to sleeping with their boss.
When love relationship with your boss turns messy at work, is the beginning of the lady’s nightmare.
Would you call such relationships stupid when it improved their career chances? If really some women can do that to get promotion, then how do they feel, knowing that they didn’t earn that promotion through hard work? Yet there are many reasons experts say it is never good to have a relationship at working place. A lady who accepts such advances and sleeps with her boss, should keep in her mind that her boss will do similar thing again with the next female looking for job.
There are problems in relationships and when a relationship of such kind comes to a bitter end, who does it affect most, the boss or the lady? In my opinion one gains a lot of respect at work when you refrain from any love affair at work. Above all the chances of losing your job are very slim. It is also known that many women give up their jobs when experiencing unwanted sexual advances from their superiors. That’s good thinking and action.
Whatever temptation a woman might face, she has the power to make a bad or good decision, but always remember it is never good to involve in love affair at the office when you are paid to work. You might think you are the lucky one because you’ve been picked by your boss out of your colleagues, but when the relationship becomes stormy that will be the beginning of your nightmare.
