Peculiar Okafor: Your Opinion or Just Jealousy?

All these extravagant weddings sef, they don’t last. There’s no need to spend on the wedding and ignore the marriage’

Why are they vacationing at this time and posting pictures when they know there’s a recession?

I thank God for the little things I have, at least I can sleep well at night.

Statements like these are very common in a lot of our conversations. We offer ‘genuine feedback‘ to people who are achieving; we tell them things they can do better, regardless of how harsh the tone is. Every mistake they make is scrutinized and we also poke holes at their successes. The truth of the matter is that in a way we might just be jealous.

The human spirit is strong and bad intentions can always be felt even when we lie to ourselves that we are offering well meaning advice or the very famous ‘personal opinion‘.

Ask yourself, when you criticize, put down, decide to start a food fest under each article of a person, what is your aim and what do you intend to achieve? is it to feel a bit better about yourself, to convince yourself that the successful people are not all that?

My people, let’s live our lives and let others live. More importantly, let’s be honest with ourselves about the fact that we all want to be successful and experience the best things life has to offer and it can somehow make us feel inadequate when others seemingly get these things easily. However, poking holes in their success doesn’t make them any less sucessful, it just makes us look ugly.

Like a BN commenter once wrote ‘appreciate and celebrate the worthy instead of expressing the unnecessary.’

Live your life and stop jealous!

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
