Hey guys, your favorite writer is back (Even if I’m not yet, I’ll soon be). So I’m back and today I’m going to write about letting it go.
Letting it go…I actually touched on this topic in my former post but a chain of events have made me talk about it as a separate topic. It really hurts me and I repeat really pains me to see people living in sorrow and despair solely because they’ve failed to grasp the concept of letting it go. The world we live in this 21st century world is very vile and believe me is full of evil. As technology and modernization increase, so does the crime and wickedness in our world. The other day in a rather light argument with my mom I joked and told her that if there was no wickedness in the world and everyone lived good, the world would be a boring place. Take it or leave it, really imagine nobody over sped, nobody was violent, everyone was punctual, nobody cheated, nobody stole, everybody was orderly, the world will be so boring in fact there would be no use for media again and technology wouldn’t have been needed but friends this is our world…The drama is all part of it…the wickedness is all part and parcel of the side effects of the fall of man. So firstly I want everyone reading this post to grasp this principle.
#Principle 1…Wickedness, anger, pain, disappointment and despair are all part of life.
Okay so some of you might like to argue my principle but read my former post Story Writer https://spokenvoiceless.wordpress.com/2016/09/16/story-writer/. All this things happen for a reason. Next I would like to talk on how we punish ourselves. We’re so used to punishing ourselves we don’t even notice. How do we punish ourselves? By living in despair and anger. Its a common disease to all men I myself is a victim of. Its very related to a victim mindset. So you get robed by your colleague in 2010…its 2016 and you don’t trust anyone and in fact if any one mentions the name of that friend to you, you get sick due to anger. Or…there’s this girl you’ve dated for 8 years and have been pleading to be patient and give you time to settle down…she suddenly calls and informs you of her wedding in 3 months…6 years later you’re still single and drinking every night..you’ve made it but you cant bring yourself to date another girl and every time you see her jeep buzz by with her 3 children you get extra drunk…or you write an exam invest all your energy and your paper falls into the wrong marker, you fail and because of that you loose vibe for education. People! This is not good at all. This is self inflicted punishment which brings me to Principle 2
#Principle 2…We’re so used to living in the sorrow and anger of yesterday that we forget to enjoy today.
Lastly, I’m going to more extensively repeat a principle I’ve already given in my post Hapiness and Joy My Personal Principles https://spokenvoiceless.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/hapinness-and-joy-my-personal-principles/. Now that we know that evil is here to stay in this world till Jesus comes for us and we also know the punishment we inflict on ourselves, lets think tactically, what is the solution? Well I believe the solution lies in letting it go. One animation I celebrate with my whole spirit, my second best is Frozen. The idea is vague but Elsa had to let it go…she had to let go of what she was holding inside her…where ill vary from her principle is I wont advocate letting it go in terms of violence or excessive self expression but ill advocate letting it go in making a personal commitment to forgetting things as they come and go. I preach to everyone who knows me the life of “Ya wuche Ya wuche” (by gone by gone…it has passed it has passed) Hausa because where English fails to express my view Hausa language does justice. When you learn to live the life of ‘forgetting as they happen’, life will be so much easier and you’ll be much more joyful and jovial. You get kicked today forget, you get slapped tomorrow forget, learn to live like this and you’ll spare yourself a lot of stress. To end this principle I’ll take a quote from Nigerian Hip Hop Artist Ice Prince Zamani….
“My brother learn to forgive and sabi to forget”.
Simple principle whatever happens say Live goes on…I know and you’ll agree that some people are naturally annoying. Infact most times people annoy us and dont even know they did anything wrong so while we’re angry, they’re simply living the life this too isn’t good. So principle 3
#Principle 3…The secret of life is letting it go
