The Cost Of Love

To Understand Love, You Must Know It’s Cost. Literally and figuratively, love costs alot. But true love doesn’t cost a thing. All a woman needs is food, wifi and a roof above her head. Any woman trying to get you to give her more than that should be returned to the streets. I don’t get upset when my man ignores me for football. I just have to remind him that I have his credit card pin. There you go. And he will be making me dinner in no time. Love doesn’t cost a thing. It’s trying to make your partner happy that costs so much. Therefore, dear men, you have a choice to make. Bone straight or Nike sneakers? Ayyyy.

Women are meant to be loved, and not understood. But how hard is it to understand women? We like wigs, compliments, cuddles, naps, Disney movies, yoga pants and shopping. That’s it. It won’t cost much to understand a woman. But what happens after understanding a woman is what matters. Now leave her by the road side and run. Run for your dear life. Every woman is nice and understandable at the first week of February. After the third week, hell would descend on you. Because why not? You didn’t read the manuals dear. Don’t fall in love, fall off a bridge. It hurts less.

Letting Go. To be in love is to let go of everything and accompanying that one person you are willing to spend the rest of your life with. And that’s why I pledge to never fall in love. Love is like an hour glass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties. The only relationship that I have is with my wifi. We have a connection. Some of us can’t let go of anything for our partners and it doesn’t have to do with selfishness or fake love. It’s about trying to avoid dying of hunger. You only let go when he can feed you and still keep some extra change for your wardrobe. Any other thing is shalaye. I cannot come and kill myself and die for you.

Relationships are costlier than love. If you get what I mean, you’re a genius. If money grew in trees, some of you won’t mind dating monkeys. In reality, some of you are already dating monkeys. If I had a boyfriend like yours, waking up in the midnight to stare at his face would be an extreme sport for me. Funny that some women wear diamond rings and still cheat on their partner. It’s not money or love that keeps a woman. Nothing keeps a woman. Everything is on God.

Money is good but love is wealth. Love doesn’t care how much money you have. It actually cares about how much money you give. The only thing women love more than money is power. The power to control money. Money don’t spoil relationships, it reveals the seriousness in relationships. So many men think women want just money, cars and gifts. Well, you’re right. I additionally want a land in lekki, a private jet, shawarma and cold Pepsi. Life is not about money. It’s about relationships; Our relationship with money. Don’t loose guard comrades.

People change after getting money. Some men only treat you right because they are financially weak. Once they have the money, you will realize how horrible they are. Never love someone for their money. Love them for their heart. That’s my advice to you. It doesn’t mean I actually follow it. Nothing hurts more than dating a financially poor partner. If you don’t have money, don’t go into a relationship. And if you must, notify us on time. Start the conversation like “Hey girl, I am poor but I want you to be my better half.” You can then wait for a yes or no. Poor boys are always funny. They make you laugh and forget their miserable condition. They have nothing to offer but memes and jokes. Get out abeg.

Behind every untrusting girl, is a guy who lied, cheated, and broke his promises to her. But stay strong and make them wonder why you are smiling. Love costs a lot; your heart which pumps blood, your mind which controls your life activities and your wallet. Anyone who tells you true love doesn’t involve money is only ready to double your life problems. But when you place money above love, you’re only a gold digger with a very large shovel. And dear boys, you can’t be broke and ugly..

Pick A Struggle.

  • How To Make Fewer Comparisons
    What Steps Did I Take To Make Fewer Comparisons? I Recognized That Everyone Is Flawed And Imperfect: I believe that the major cause of my inferiority complex was my inability to recognize that everyone is flawed and perfection is impossible. I wanted to change a lot of things about my life because I felt that these features and characteristics made me weird. But in reality, they made me unique. Everyone is flawed. I Helped Others. There is nothing better and more satisfying than reaching out and helping people. I believe that what matters at the end of everything is not what you have or your accomplishments, it’s about who you have helped and what you have given back to this world.
  • Why I Applied To Minerva University( The School With The Lowest Acceptance Rate In The World). Do I Think I Would Get In?
    What Makes Minerva Different From Other Universities?  I believe Minerva is the best university in the world. To begin with, Minerva adopts a global experience. Is Minerva Accredited?  Yes. Minerva is accredited by the Western Senior College And University Commission Association Of Schools And Colleges (WASC). How Did I Discover Minerva University? The first time I heard about Minerva was in 11th grade. I had just been accepted to EducationUSA Abuja. A Minervian was a member of the group and she was sharing her story, of how she was accepted to Minerva despite her low SAT score and Waec result. What Inspired Me To Apply To Minerva? Then she said, “You should apply to Minerva, I think it’s a school for people like you..” For people like me? I laughed. And I asked her “Me? Minerva? With My Carton Brain?” Minerva is everything I have ever wanted. A chance to liberate me, a place to grow and develop my talents. One thing was clear to me after reading through their website for over 2 hours that night. MINERVA IS INTERESTED IN MY STORY. And that’s why I applied to this institution. I submitted my application yesterday. Yes! Congratulations to me. I finished my application early this month but I had to wait for my counselor to upload my documents. Overall, I think Minerva’s application process is interesting and unique. It provides an opportunity for you to define yourself and what matters to you. It helps you to critically think about different issues that are absent in most admission processes. The application process allows you to open up yourself to the admissions committee and I believe this is Minerva’s greatest strength.  Do I Think I Would Get In? I don’t know! As I have mentioned a thousand times, Minerva is unique from other schools. The only person you have to compete with for a spot at Minerva is yourself. Once you have exceeded their bar, you will get in with financial aid. What Is My Advise To Those Applying To Minerva? Before you apply to Minerva, ask yourself these questions: Why do I want to attend Minerva? Am I ready to be rigorously challenged? Am I an extrovert(I will make another post regarding this)? Do I love to travel? Good luck to everyone applying to Minerva and other colleges. I know this period can be so stressful and exhausting, but be patient and work hard. God will do it for you! 
  • How To Seek And Build Knowledge From Good Sources
    1. Be Curious: Having a curious mind or being curious is the first step in gaining knowledge. A curious mind is filled with insightful questions and actively seeks answers. Take a look at your personality or reflect and see if you are naturally curious about the things around you, your community or anything you happen to come across. The questions you ask determine the kind of answers you receive and they lead you to the path of learning. When a curious mind hits a wall, they seek knowledge and when they find that knowledge, they melt down that wall. Therefore, curiosity is the road to lifelong learning. Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find.
  • It’s My Birthday Today!
    It’s my birthday today! 365 days have passed since the last time I celebrated my last birthday. It still feels like yesterday and I cannot describe how fast time flies.  Within the last 365 days, I have cried, laughed, danced, rejoiced, mourned, and learned crucial life lessons. But most importantly, I have become a better person and I have taken a step towards my life goals. This is an appreciation post for the life I have lived for the past 1 year. 
  • The Nothingness Of Nothing
    The nothingness of nothing We come into this world with nothing Our purpose, to make something out of nothing The end, we leave with nothing.
