When Overwhelmed with insecurities, Odinakachukwu Ndukwe

We sometimes make the statement “I don’t care what people say about me” and the likes but is that true? I myself have said that often and even did a post on it. There’s no doubt that saying such helps and is liberating, it actually did help me. However, the truth is we care about what people say. Let’s admit it. What we actually do is we try as much as possible to not make what people think about us matter or get to us.

All I could ask God was to help me, give me peace, that’s all I was saying.

Gospel songs

Hello everyone, hope your week is going fine. Just the other day, I was thinking about how songs can be helpful in one way or the other. I listen to music a lot and almost every song I have listened to, has a memory or an event surrounding it. Some are good, some are not so good. In all, good music can be comforting and helpful too.

Depression is a very popular topic in our world today and needs to be taken seriously. According to the World Health Organization, depression will be the 2nd highest medical cause of disability by the year 2030, second only to HIV/AIDS.

On Saturday the 26th, I was given the opportunity to speak to teenagers in my church. They had a 2 day programme and though I didn’t go the first day which was Friday (was at work), the one I experienced on Saturday was wonderful and I learned a lot. My favourite part of it all was questions the teenagers asked. You could tell that they needed to understand several things from sex, relationships,

I have ever been in a situation where I was accused of not greeting someone (Nigerians can sha take greeting personal). The person was like didn’t you see me? So you can’t greet, a young girl like you and so on. Sincerely, right there, I couldn’t even remember if I greeted her or not because I was busy (I think) but I know I greet a lot (Has someone ever dragged your ears when you were a kid for not greeting?
