Dear Friend,

I will not tell you I understand how you feel because the truth is only you understand how it hurts but this I can assure you, you are strong enough to make it through. Maybe you feel weak right now, maybe you are tired, a little hug here and a little love there may be all you think you have been living off for a while but I believe it only takes a strong spirit to have come this far. I know it hurts so much and you feel you can’t share, I can relate because your silence says a lot. I wish there is more I can do to let you see what I see in you.

I see is a Sun at dawn, even though it is still shielded by the thick dark cloud, soon there will come a time when nothing can stop its shine.

Most times life would not give us what we deserve, by a longshot we might be far from what we believe should be our reality or where we think we should be but that is life. The humiliation, the stigma and the “bitter after taste” might be too much to bear, this I understand is not easy but I also know many have come from the grave dark to grace the stardom lights.

Opera Winfrey was raped repeatedly for years, got pregnant and lost the baby. It seemed she was in that darkest place where no one can come out of but somehow she never gave up. Today, her light shines brighter everyday while guiding others to the light.

Joyce Meyer suffered abuse, molestation and rape from her own father for several years. She said those were her darkest hours but then she didn’t give in to those hours. God’s love found her and today she is touching lives with her story.

Steve Jobs was ‘fired’ from his own company ‘Apple’ by someone he hired but he didn’t give up, he didn’t let anger, feeling of being betrayed and quest for vengeance cloud his judgement. He built another company called NEXT and through that he was able to get back into Apple.

You may have been humiliated by people you trusted, people you thought you could count on through thick and thin but then life is a war with many battles, you may have lost several battles up till now but I can assure you the war is not over. So long as you don’t let depression bring the worst out of you, like a wounded lion, inch by inch, you can claw your way back into this fight.

It is easy to think revenge will set you free, this I will not stop you from especially when it seems your mind is all made up but here is a fact I know, no good thing comes from being vengeful. When you hold on to hate, revenge, or bitterness, it is like trying to smite someone who hurt you with hot iron rod in your bare hands, whether you succeed or not, you would have burned your own hands in the process. My honest advice, let it go! It won’t be easy but it is the right thing to do, let karma do her work and you concentrate on building your life a piece at a time.

Death may seem a way out, but suicide is for cowards. The brave would rather die fighting than commit suicide. You are brave my friend, I see so much life in you, even through the thick cloud, I believe your Sun will still get its turn to shine. I know you probably expect more from people but there is so little anyone can do, honestly. As much as I want to assure you things will be alright, there is just little I can offer you but my words. People may seem less concerned but that is not totally true, there is more than meets the eye; most people are also struggling with things they would rather not talk about, yet they wear the smile of ‘all is well’. However, after all said and done, never forget to reach out. It is easier to fight life’s battles when you have someone to rub minds with.

You are not alone in this struggle. It is a phase and it will pass. It is okay to be confused, it is human to feel insecure and unsure, these only remind us that we are not perfect; and nobody is perfect. You can ask questions or just do it anyway. Don’t give up on yourself on the account of how life has treated you, remember only the test of fire makes a fine steel. I believe in you my friend, I believe your light can still find its way through this thick cloud. Your past don’t define you, you are wiser, you are braver, you have all it takes; dig deep!

Letter to My Depressed Friend

When Your Dream Scares You!

When Your Dream Scares You!

If your dream is as crazy as mine you will be able to relate with this piece. Quoting Steve JobsHere’s to the crazy ones — the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

I am scared of my dreams, sometimes it feels more like a burden than a blessing. I often wonder how far apart they set me, how odd they make the way I see things, how I perceive my environment and how I comprehend and interpret events. What i desire, what my soul yearns for seems to be far fetched but that seems not to stop me from desiring them, the nature of My dream!

People want to be contented but that seems to me they want to be limited. Friends want some cars but I want fleets. Colleagues want to have houses but I want estates. Mates want to get high paying jobs but I just want to be the one paying. Most people I know want happy homes but I want a happy world. Guys I have pacts with want to be blessed but I want to be a blessing. I want much more, more than a man can give to another man, that’s the nature My dream!

I know that with great dreams come great tribulations but because I know still doesn’t make it less scary. I know at the end of the tunnel is a bright light but that still doesn’t make the tunnel less dark. People commend my brilliance, but that seems not to be gratifying enough again, just as the dreams are no longer enough and my heart aches for actualization. I pray, I meditate, I strategize and I actualize but I know only God can make things materialize such as My dream!

Don’t be scared if people don’t understand you, don’t be derailed when most can’t make sense of your dream, it might feel like a burden, sound like an impossible but soon when it is birth the world will celebrate you. That’s what keeps me going, as i nurture My dream!

If you have dreams as terrifying as mine, know you are not alone and by all means if you don’t give up, the future is very bright. What you feel is not wrong, trust me, being called ambitious is not as bad as people want you to think. Desiring to impact on a big scale is not as crazy as they want you to believe… You, me, don’t happen too often but whenever we happen we change history.
