I recall a time when a friend was getting engaged. First and foremost, congratulations to her and her fiancé for an engagement well done. I wish them a prosperous union.
Back to our scenario; What struck me prior to this engagement was the negative energy from her friends. To my shock, some girls wanted to intervene and stop the guy from proposing because they believed the girl was not ready. Yet how does one even know that?
I have learnt in my life not to intervene in the affairs between two lovers. You will never know for sure. Should you find yourself in a situation between two love birds remember, you are a non-person and a non-entity. No matter what they whisper to you, let them sort out their differences; you will never be able to fully appreciate nor understand, the desires of their hearts.
And I would like to say to my readers out there, when you are ready to marry or to take a significant step in your life, keep your affairs secret; not everyone is your friend. You may not be aware but you are surrounded by wolves whose last objective is to let your prosper. They will conceal their lies and covetousness with smiles, however be very careful. Their wickedness shall be exposed in the assembly.
Keep your integrity intact, surround yourself with genuine people. Shun all dishonest persons from your circle and plan ahead. When taking this step, prepare for where you are going. Don’t just wake up one morning and decide to get married. There is no group work in this affair. You don’t need to take a poll. Other people’s opinions are not as important as your own. You will bear the brunt of your choices by yourself and you will shoulder the responsibility that comes along with it. So make your decisions and live with the consequences; this is not a decision for anyone but the two of you. Until we speak again, I am your host Mitchell Odhiambo. Welcome to a man’s world.
