Be careful what you say about others


I attended a funeral service in the village. After the funeral service, I met one of my cousins, whom I have not seen for over four years.

After exchanging pleasantries, she dragged me to where her husband was standing with another cousin. She was so excited, and in my heart, I was like, is it this short man that Adaora is excited about any way I greeted him and left.

All my life, I have never liked short guys. I use to laugh at my friends who married short men.

When suitors started coming for me, all of them were short men. Jesus!!! Where did I go wrong? Is my past now hunting me? I remember when I was growing up, they were this guy who owned a chemist shop.

If you take your child to his shop for treatment and your child is ugly, he would so make a mockery of that child. At the time, he was not married, so everybody waited for him to get married and start having children.

He eventually got married to this beautiful lady, maybe to avoid having ugly children. Then his wife became pregnant and had a child. Most people who went to see the child did not go there because they were interested in the baby.

They just wanted to see what the baby looked like. I turned the baby was something else. For months people laughed at this guy. The most interesting part was that the baby was a girl.

Nevertheless, I eventually settled with one of the short men. And every day, I thank God for my husband because he is the best thing that has happened to me. He is everything I asked for and more. Now I understand why Adaora was so excited to introduce me to her husband.

The best partners are not always the most attractive men or women. Physical appearance is good but should not be the major thing to look out for, I have seen people who got married to beautiful men and women, but they are not happy. If your heart accepts the person, and you are convinced that he or she is right for you, follow it and, every other thing will fall in place.

Before careful what you say about others, do not make a mockery of other people’s shortcomings.
