When The Enemy Within is Exposed...and The Power of Naija

Imagine this scenario...you live in the same house with someone you think you have a good relationship with...at least to an extent. Although she's older...you reckon she is close enough to call you to order if need be and if she steps on your toes...you really don't have to hide the fact that she hurt you from her...
Then comes a day you had a slight and I mean very slight argument with her...you decided to go out for a dose of fresh air to clear your head...you were on your way out anyways...so you opened the door to depart...
But then...you changed your mind...well just because you can...She heard the door close and probably assumed you had gone out...then she gets on the phone to whoever to start yada yadaing about you...like she really pours out the venom and throws a curse or two your way in the process...and you're there...listening....but she has no idea!!! I laugh...
You allow her to run her mouth to the very last drop...then you go to her,smile and say...hey,you good?...no worries, will sort that issue out next week...and you stroll out...Yes she's gobsmacked and you're in shock...

That was exactly what happened to me over the weekend...you really think you know people...but the honest truth is you don't...only God can reveal the enemy within...
I was in shock for a while 'cos I found it difficult to believe that people can be so two faced it is unreal...why do we do such...I honestly don't get it...
Well I confronted her when I got back...I told her I can't believe she harboured such pain and anger in her heart towards me whilst I thought we were cool...she immediately started apologising profusely before I even got midway and said I should ignore all she said 'cos she said it out of anger...well she also said she wasn't talking to anyone...she was talking to herself...lol...last I checked, pigs fly!!!

Anyways I'm thankful...that the enemy within was revealed...we learn everyday...no it hasn't put me off trusting people...it has just made me learn to be more careful with information I give people about me...no I won't clam up...I'm still an extrovert...integrity is still key and honesty the best policy...I've just learnt to trust my instinct more...through the Holy spirit of 'cos
now I know what the deal is...envy is a very bad thing...like my mentor always says...Don't Kill your Brother...Kill Envy!

moving on swiftly....have you registered to vote?Please do so...ASAP make your vote count in 2011... Again this song is dedicated to NIGERIA...I love it! And the title is apt...it is called...THE POWER OF NAIJA...

I can imagine how ashamed she must have been when she saw you. I'm glad her real character was revealed though, people can be so two-faced. Keep doing you girl, we learn everyday!

Good Naija Girl said...

Aww, I'm sorry that you had to hear that. This is a good reminder for me: I generally think that I know what all my friends really think of me, good or bad, but I guess this is proof that I could be surprised!
