NOT EVERYONE IS LIKE YOU!!! Get Over It…

I had a friend back in high school. Funny lady, if she didn’t like a person, she would expect that I don’t talk to them also.
Raise your hand if you’ve ve had the same experience in the past…) #insertsmile.
Friends that expect you to pledge allegiance and it didn’t matter even if they were doing the wrong thing.

A quarrel was a count-on-it experience if I dared disobey her wish by associating with people she had ‘x’ in her book.
(she has this imaginary black book)

It doesn’t have to be like that baby…
Don’t hate people because they sustain a different perspective from you.

If you like yam, I must not also like ‘your yam.’
If I love beans, Let me love my beans. Love me if you must, without forcing me to also fall for ‘your yam’.
Sombody say amen…)

Don’t fight someone because they have a thing for dressing well.

Dress How You Want To Be Addressed

If you don’t like ‘guy’, please don’t hate those who love it.

(guy in this context refers to a person who loves fashion. It’s a Nigerian slogan.)

There was this particula lady who came up to me a certain time saying she needed to have a chat with me.
I began suggesting possible reasons in my head why she might want a talk with me since we didn’t have a track record of friendship with her.

I’m talking about ladies with the Mandela kinda zeal: too serious to give a decent smile and certainly too zealous to wear anything other than a long-skirt that accompanied each time she walked.
I mean the Kings business requires haste right?
No Time for Jokers Like Us):hmmn!

With that out of the way, back to our story:
She said, I can see that you love God BUT you need to stop wearing trouser’ and dressing like a WORLDLY lady.

Did she just say “worldly?” oh my goodness!
Well I forgive you since this term is relative based on an individuals perspective.
(some people condemn those who dress well to mean they are “worldly”…)

(Dressing decently is what I advocate for and as a matter of fact, everyone ought to be doing same) but calling someone who wears trouser’, earrings, wigs etcetera “WORLDY”, that to me is what I call being silly.
(she tagged me as being “worldly” for wearing trousers.
Oh Lward have mercy!

Mi Lady, I feel the need to say this right here;
please respect people’s differences and perspectives.
Imagine with me for a minute if every single person that walked on this earth was just like you, you and you?

Do you now see what a mess that would have been?

For instance: if you were a sadist, everybody else would have been just like you.

If you were a jokester, the whole world would be filled with depleted folks and there would have been no heroes to look up to.

If you are one with the mandela-kinda zeal, who would make us laugh so hard like Trevor Noah does so beautifully?

Do you no see why we all can’t be like each other?

Thank you for understanding my point.

(Praise the Lord…)

There is so much beauty in our diversification.

Embracing You

What we need to do is embrace each other. 

Instead of looking out for the differences, let’s look our for our uniqueness and see how we can each turn every single one of them to something beneficial.

In the words of a great mentor Apostle Joshua Selman… “if the whole world is like you, the world would be a boring place to live in” (ain’t that about the truest thing you’ve heard today?) *insertSmile

If she loves makeup, don’t judge or hate her for loving what you don’t like.

 

If she doesn’t like make-up, don’t hate her for wanting it natural. Don’t even call her bush either.

(What is good for the goose is good for the gander they say, in this case, its not the same…

Listen Up!
Be you and let someone else be themselves.

Life is that simple! Don’t complicate it…

Beauty in diversity

 

WOULD YOU LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING?
I just heard someone say ‘RRY’ please do…
Alright then.. Here it is;
Don’t fight people who have a different belief as yours.
Learn to accommodate people’s differences whilst you sustain your own beliefs, character and conviction.
Stop harassing people TO BE or ACT like you.
Truth is, Not everybody will be like you so hey; GeT-Over-It.
Period!

So my question for you today is:::
Who Have You been Judging?
Who do you hate because they aren’t like you?

I appreciate when you read and drop a comment.

StaySafe..
See you another time, I remain your favorite girl RRY…

    God made diversity as an expression of himself. If the creator wanted us to be the same, he would have done so in the very beginning. So you are right, we ought to celebrate our uniqueness and rub off positively on one another rather live in constant rivalry for no tangible reason. Thanks for sharing …

    Simply an awesome write up dear. It’s important to be original instead of being a photocopy of what people expect. True peace comes from being who you’re created to be not an imitation of another personality. Thumps ?

    Here is another one. I choose to celebrate people’s positive differences and express ‘me’ . To think of it another way, I should celebrate and build relationships with those who appreciate/have value for me(iside-out) to make me my better-best.
    Plenty thanks RRY. Always trialled!
