As someone who had a good share of negative experiences growing up, which formed how I saw the world, I became poisoned by the elements of negativity in the environment and found it difficult to see the good in everything. As an instance, when someone pitched an idea to me, I would initially see all the reasons why that idea may never work. I had grown up in an environment of broken promises and this made me a natural sceptic. But recently, I have been on a journey towards change.
Confession, confession – when it comes to minding one’s business, I used to be one of the worst of them all. I often found it hard to face my front when stuff is going on around me. It was either I was eavesdropping or trying to answer a question that was not mine to answer. This does not happen everywhere and with everyone, though. It all depends on the familiarity I have with that environment. So, for instance, I am alone in a public transport vehicle, bro, you can’t even see me talking to a stranger much less contributing to a discussion, I am as quiet as they come but in the office with my friends, I am known for jumping into conversations except I am really busy.
Hey hello there!
It is finally the year we have all been waiting for, the year that promises so much turn around for everyone – individuals, families, businesses, the government, and our nation. I have seen so much commitment to a better new year on social media, and I can only hope people are falling in line with their pledges.
