Have you come across people who make you feel that what you believe in does not make sense? Everyone is entitled to their opinion and their beliefs too so you…
Do you pay attention to what you listen to?
“TV, movies, games and books are much like food – for your mind and soul”
Often times, I’d hear “be careful what you listen to and watch”, “be careful what your mind feeds on”. I knew it was true that what you listen to or watch could have effect on your mind but I never took it to heart.
I have heard that watching violent movies can make you violent or listening to music about violence, drugs, music that degrade women and even those that use profanity can have a negative effect on you. Always, I’d wonder how that is even possible. You know yourself, you know you can’t be violent, you know you respect women
Guilt is a major emotion that can throw one off balance. One moment, you are okay, the next, you feel so bad. Sometimes guilt comes with feelings of unworthiness and self-punishment. Everyone has felt guilty one way or the other. It’s part of the thing that makes us human.
According to Wikipedia, “Guilt is a cognitive or an emotional experience that occurs when a person believes or realizes—accurately or not—that he or she has compromised his or her own standards of conduct or has violated a universal moral standard and bears significant
Once upon a time, I was mad at God. A lot was happening at that period, I felt like all my problems were drowning me and God just stood there looking at me. He couldn’t even help me. I wasn’t asking for too much. What I asked for was a “need” and not even a “want”, yet no answer, nothing. I was so angry, I almost did not care anymore. I lost interest in reading my b
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.
Every morning on my way to work, I see how some people drive on the streets and most times I’m like, if I drive, I will just be slowing down anyhow and I might just cause an accident. Even before I reached the age of driving, I’ve always been scared of driving. It’s amazing how people could manoeuvre through tight corners
Yesterday, I woke up with a heavy heart. I was thinking about a lot of things, including past mistakes and decisions I have to make. I felt like running away from all that bothered me but that of course wasn’t possible. All these were in my mind, even up until noon and sometimes I almost felt like crying (you know those times when you want to cry but you tell yourself, no, you can’t cry naw). All I could ask God was to help me, give me peace, that’s all I was saying.
Hi everyone and welcome to another series of ViewPoint.
For those new to Viewpoint, ViewPoint brings together the opinions or “viewpoints” of people on subject matters. Basically I would ask some people their thoughts on a particular issue or matter and compile them for you all to see. The aim of this is to realize how people think and to appreciate the diversity of thoughts.
“I don’t think God has a plan for me”
“Why is my situation contrary to the dreams God has given me concerning my life?”
“I have waited for so long, yet God has not given me what I want”
I’m sure most people have wondered why their lives are not going the way it is intended to go (me too). There are 2 answers to this. One could be that
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.
