“Babe, at least you are in a better situation. There’s someone out there who is suffering more than you.”
Are you this 👆🏾 kind of person? Always comparing your friends’ situation to another? There’s a reason someone chose to talk to you about how they are feeling. Don’t take it for granted and play “memory master” with them. They need your support not justifications.
Comparing situations is a callous way of handling a mental health related problem. You ain’t helping.

October: 001 🎃
Okay, not everything you see on the internet is true! Some of us even slept on an empty stomach yesterday and but somehow we managed to get data (read dayyy-ta).
Some are even still in their muzigo (house) stranded with their ka bucket of “juice”, because somehow they overslept. The land lady is outside shouting, “Omwezi guweddeko mumpe sente zange, mumpe sente zange! (The month has ended, give me my money, give me my money!)” and it seems like she is not about to leave 🌶. To make it worse, she is seated on their veranda. 😂
Remember you are so hungry! 😂 You have only 4000shs on you. And as usual, you had already planned that you would go visit a friend, and bask there the whole day for some food (you know that one visitor or friend that is always at your home and your mum/siblings think she/he is your best friend, kumbe njala!) Then use 2k back home (where you now just sneak in like a rat).
Anyway, life is not easy. Continue to hustle.
For the last two years I haven’t written so much something I want to improve starting with this October. I want to challenge myself to write and read more.I want to task myself to write 100 mind blowing (informative and entertaining) blogs. So guys, look out for my blogs 😉.
