So last night my mind was going crazy with all these thoughts. It’s that season when people around me are getting married, finding themselves, traveling the world, really just leaving their lives. The people around you giving all sorts of advice.

A married person who tells their single friends that if they knew what they know now, they wouldn’t have gotten married or when a well-traveled fella tells his friend that no matter where you go home is the comfort that cannot be found any other place. I mean are you kidding me!!!! For someone who has not traveled, visiting another place is a dream. Do you not watch tv or something?

Besides, the guys who travel make it look so much fun, and yes traveling is fun. In fact, I wonder when I see them return home. Why?

What is it people? Should you live your own experiences and learn from them?

Do we miss out on the fun when we are guided by other people’s
experiences? Is it boring to play safe all the time?

A wise man once said “the things you expose yourself to now will affect how you relate with your spouse or even the people around.”

Wait is this how we get into situationships? When you don’t understand what is really going on, just moving through the motions. It only dawns on you when someone finally asks the question and you freeze or take a pause suddenly tight-lipped.

What do you think should happen?
