The Woman Who Insulted Her Mother Inlaw (#SpeechlessMode)

Follow me @Nolimit2life

Make una 'ep me judge matter o!

Just saw this post on Linda Ikeji's blog and it left me speechless.
What type of man leaves his wife and mother to insult each other to the point where his own mother is cursing his wife!
I'm not sure the man in question understands the gravity of the pronouncements being made by his mum otherwise, he would have stepped in to end the argument. Dear Husband "The two has become one" whether you like it or not, a curse on your wife is a curse on you so get ready.
But it looks like he was doing it for the'gram (as they say nowadays!).
Woman even if your mother in-law is a troublemaker receive sense and be diplomatic. Don't get me wrong, I know some mother in-laws are agents of the devil but it was still a cringe-worthy video. How people develop the impetus to speak disrespectfully like this nowadays beats me. Right in front of your own daughter. You've left an indelible mark on that child.
The whole video was a mess I'm even thinking of sparing you the irritation but nah I won't you need to see it to understand what I'm typing!

This Space Of Mine

Follow me @Nolimit2life

I know how shocked people are when they see updates or get notifications that I posted on this blog of mine!!!
It is my space and I'm simply not letting go :)
It could be so much more but I keep feeling I'm losing my anonymity by the second... thus...
I tread carefully! 
I will still vent and rant but it will be with wisdom.
There's so much to talk about and dissect yet I find myself writing in my head but never putting my thoughts on paper!!! I wonder why :)
It's a new month.

Asking for Help

Follow me @Nolimit2life

What is It about asking for help that gets us all jittery???
This Q is what I'm pondering on as I go home. Why do we find it difficult to ask for help from others talk more of accepting the said help. Is it cultural or is it just human nature?
Growing up, I know mother dearest always said not to accept anything from strangers and that just became the mantra. But that's even out of point(come to think of it)lol 
I'm talking about needing help, seeing someone(people) that can help and keeping quiet because you don't want them to think you can't cope without them or whatever excuse we conjure up from the recess of our vivid imaginations.
Or the simple example I'm about to give; A while back in winter, I was rushing for the train, I had about seven minutes to get to the train before the train moved so I decided to get a cup of latte to warm my insides(the cold was real).
On getting to my train with two bags in tow, I was finding it difficult to balance my bags and the coffee. I needed to add sugar and stir it.
There were two people sitting opposite and beside me and all I needed to have done was ask if either of them could hold my cup of coffee for me so that I can stow my bag away to have space to hold and drink my coffee...But I didn't!!! 
And it wasn't because of hygiene or anything related. I just acted on autopilot and clumsily did everything myself. Needless to say, i didn't exactly enjoy the coffee. In hindsight, I asked myself why the heck I didn't ask for help when it was out there.
And this train of thought led me to my question above about asking for help.Why???
Why do we shutdown and refuse to ask? Why do we refuse to let people that may be able to help us in?
 Surely...there's a deep reason why we all shun asking people for help. Is it a sign of weakness on our part? Is it pride?

PS: The coffee example is minor compared to other real life major examples.
Like having people you call close friends and not being able to ask them for help when you're in a financial situation for example.
Or needing an outlet because you're in an abusive marriage yet holding it all in... refusing to seek help.
Why do we do this to ourselves? #ThinkingOutLoud

Passing Off Harrasment As Discipline!!! #NaijaFactor

Follow me @Nolimit2life

At some point this madness has got to stop.
This harassment cloaked in discipline!
I'm back again to vent. Maybe I should change the name of this blog of mine to "NoLimit's Vent Corner" lol.
Great idea I just may do that.
Anyways I read about the FRSC(Federal Road Safety Corp) Commander who decided to take it upon himself to check the nails and hair of the staff and then proceeded to cut the hair of the female staff whose hair style wasn't at par with the FRSC standard.( Even typing this crap stinks to me.)
It brought back memories of how a teacher tried to do same to me in one of the military schools many moons ago.
On that faithful day I had come to school with my hair short, all blown out and well styled. I was truly feeling myself...didn't realise this female teacher wasn't particularly pleased with it.
She then called me to the staff room, requested for a scissors and then proceeded to cut my hair or should I say try. Because I went totally crazy. I mean stark raving bonkers on her!
Here I was, an almost 16 year old girl with this very much older woman who felt the need to exert her authority over me by cutting my hair in public glare.
Who made her my barber biko? How? From where to where? These were the thoughts running through my mind when I blatantly refused to allow this happen.
I was ready to die there! I was told I would be suspended if I didn't cooperate! Cooperate-fire. I was sent home and told to bring my parent!
Thankfully I wasn't and my hair was left alone.
Brings me back to present day, 100 Centuries later(#iKid) and we're still on this level of stupidity.
Should that be Commander Kumapayi's priority? Is that why he was given the position?
This is how they make mountains out of molehills and focus on what is completely and utterly irrelevant and useless.
I think it is about time we got our priorities straight in my beloved Naija.
I really want to say more but it's bedtime and I gotta sleep; I have an early day tomorrow.
But see below for link to the stupid gist:
