Embarrassing Moments(Ep.1): Most Awkward Church Experience"

On October 24th, 2023, I did what most Nigerians would call "Giving My Life To Christ," which I later learned from one social preacher to be "Receiving Christ Into My Life" at Assemblies of God Church, Saminaka, Kaduna State. And instead of the plain and proper type of follow-up of nurturing new converts into spiritual maturity, our follow-up instructor was more interested in how we would begin working in God's sanctuary already. Instead of tutoring us on how to be free from the clinges of sin, man used almost the duration of the three-month follow-up classes to talk about the fig tree and how useless it was because it wasn't bearing fruit. And then, each time, he would drive it back to how unnecessary believers who are into content consumption and not content creation are to God the Creator.   Instead of taking us through the steps of how to be hot and burn for Christ, Evangelist Josh, as they call him, was doing the quite opposite: telling us who a lukewar

10 Proven Tips For Building Self-Confidence That Lasts

 Almost everyone you pass by on the street wants to feel a little more confident. That feeling of absolute belief in your capabilities, traits, and judgment. Are you one of those? This blog post was written for you. What Is Confidence As defined by the American Psychological Association, Self-Confidence has termed “one’s sense of trust is his or her ability to successfully tackle the demands of a task”. It can be also termed an overall belief in yourself to drive the trajectory of your life. Let’s take it back home, and be a bit situation-specific. For instance, your self-confidence can be quite high in a particular field of mastery, but below average in other fields. Research, however, connotes that self-confidence is super essential to one’s livelihood and psychological balance. But developing and consistently maintaining confidence isn’t as easy as it sounds. It’s a slippery path you’re most likely to fall off after a mistake or failure. That’s the reason why continuous striving to

My Unforgettable Showdown with Wedding Bouncers In Lagos.

  Tomorrow, January 25, 2024, will mark a year since I was served my biggest humiliating experience. I had promised to take it to the grave, but after several panic attacks, I decided to share it here on this faceless forum, where at least my dignity and pride won't be tainted. Anything for my self-healing and self-forgiveness. Tomorrow, brethren would make it 365 days since a 23-year-old Di-Okpara Mmadu (firstborn son) was disgracefully bounced out of a wedding party by some Obalende-Floyd-Mayweather in the presence of over 689 people, excluding women and children. Tomorrow, people of God will mark one oscillation of the sun since I stopped worshiping at Winners Chapel Morroco Road branch, where the praise session always ends with this song, "Everything Nah Double Double." I decided to work the talk instead; double the hustle instead". Even though evidence of the "Doubled Hustle" might not really be glaring now, at least the eye-doubling hunger that mad

NEPA Bill Wahala!: Our Landlord's Approach To Tenants' Refusal To Pay Light Bills.

  On my list of victories and successes I had last year (2023), aside from being able to clinch a remote job with an Iranian company on LinkedIn, where I'm being paid 3 million Iranian rials monthly (67k in Nigerian NairĂ ), another big one was leaving the "Coast of Darkness" I lived in for almost two years.   A compound that has never experienced the blink of NEPA from October 2021, when I parked in there, until October 2023, when I parked out. Not just our compound, but actually the whole geographical region. The only region where I saw people freely leaning and hanging hands on naked electric wires while gisting and discussing. The only place on earth probably where kids were roughly playing around pole wires and NEPA transformers as if they were in an amusement park.   I feel tempted to mention the name of this place, but for the sake of my age-long idealogy that it is immature to wash the dirty linen of an ex after a breakup, I would keep the name of this place an

"10 Proven Strategies: A Comprehensive Guide to Boosting Self-Esteem."

Meta Description Self-esteem can fluctuate from time to time and from day to day. Sometimes, it is at the over-the-top state, where you almost begin to feel like nothing can bring your high spirits down. And then shortly, the reverse becomes the case—your mind becomes so preoccupied with negativity.   For instance, your confidence level might have soared high after coming across this great post on social media, but minutes later, it plummets. You might have this self-esteem variance several times in a day, even within an hour or two. Maintaining high self-esteem takes mental strength every single day. It can be tiring. According to research, the continuous attempt to maintain high levels of esteem could be disastrous to human health.  So instead of forcefully pursuing high self-esteem, better stay committed to improving your well-being by learning to improve self-esteem.
