Do you think you sometimes overreact?

It recently crossed my mind to talk about over reacting to issues and situations. A couple of months back, I probably wouldn't have thought about this. However, in recent times it has become quite obvious that a lot of times as individuals we let our strong emotions take over, we over-think situations, we analyze wrongly and then we overreact to them. Often times it may not necessarily be our fault, this is because we live in a world full of different kinds of people.



Daily in our activities and even at our work places we come across different people with different temperaments. We agree with some people and we find ourselves disagreeing with some. We may also find ourselves having to face serious antagonistic situations, such that there is a need for us to desperately react. What do we do in such situations?
Yield to our already over charged feelings and emotions at those times or relax and have a rethink before we react?

I'm 99% certain that everyone has over reacted at som…

Publishing my first book

Despite the fact that I am a writer and I have manuscripts, I have been unable to publish any for years until now.  All I had been doing for years was writing articles, blogging, speaking at events and creating contents for different magazines, writers and bloggers. I just couldn't publish a book.




At first it was the fact that I kept desperately searching for a known and established publishing house to help publish that was delaying me. The few publishing houses I had approached because I believed I stood a better chance with them, had been quick to say No to me. Later there was one that eventually agreed to publish my book, back then I had been overjoyed and I even started telling family and close friends that I was going to get published by a "big publishing house".  Little did I know, that one of the workers who was majorly in charge of new authors and manuscripts  had somethingelse in mind. My dad who had experience with men in publishing had warned me earlier to be …

How I met my husband 3

Of course I didn't want to pay. Don't get me started with the "why do females always feel entitled" question,  you guys come after ladies, promising heaven and earth. Is it wrong if we then decide to ask for just a little favour?

Anyway, he told me how much he will charge and I immediately was annoyed. I was annoyed because I expected him to seize the opportunity and do it for free. I immediately dismissed him and made up my mind that nothing will ever happen between us or bring us together again. Until one day, several weeks after when he sent me a beautiful pencil image of myself.

it was a drawing of one of my pictures and I was very happy about it but I still wasn't interested in a relationship. There was somebody else I thought was the "right person" at that time. I of course wanted to collect the picture but again he disappointed me by saying he wouldn't release it to me. He just wanted me to know he drew me. I was irritated...it was later abou…

How I met my husband 2

The days passed and what I thought was just a passing fleet of emotions refused to end. Adeola as I had already known his name by now, refused to stop. Rather than stop, he intensified his efforts.

How I met my husband 1

It was on a hot afternoon and I was tired and bored. All the movies and tales about high school had to be fake because having tonnes of assignments to do and bulky notes to read isn't fun.



I was on my way to my  class after a short break, when a sudden beep on my phone told me I had a message. As much as phones were contrabands, some of us still had to smuggle it to school once in a while....
A part of me soared with excitement, secretly wishing it was one of my "crushes". I rushed to a corner to secretly check and  I was disappointed. It was a love message quite alright, the usual love message thing but it was the anonymous sender again.  I was furious, it was bad enough that I didn't know the sender, he had the guts to keep sending the messages even during school hours.

I hissed and returned to my class. The rest of the day was uneventful, so was the week until one Friday afternoon, when I believe the gods told him "it was time".... he approached me.
 I w…
