This is what she shares;
Can I have a condom please?
If you had bagged some negative acts/dramas last year 2019, fall in here and read this piece. Trust me, it’s not that deep but it’s a must read so as to have a better 2020.
When Chika, reached out to me in respect to featuring me on her blog, the issue on getting what to write on bothered me. I thought to myself,what on earth can I possibly write on; it just popped up to write on emotional condom.
As we know that condom is a cool protection used when having sex and it’s basically against sexually transmitted diseases or unwanted pregnancy as the case may be.
Today, I’ll be writing on emotional condom. Protecting yourself from emotional stress,issues, dramas this year.
An emotional condom is the mental parallel to the physical condom – an actual condom keeps your sexual organs from getting damaged, an emotional condom keeps your heart and mind from getting damaged.
Last year, I personally did not use this condom and a whole lot happened to me… Trust me, I know better now. It is my responsibility to get an emotional condom for myself to have a cool year. You should too!
*An Emotional condom in respect to relationship (Friendship or dating)*
When you don’t trust a friend enough to let them get close to you.
When to wear a “friendship condom”?
When you are still friends but you don’t open up to them or get close emotionally in fear of them being fake with bad intentions. You must be careful trust me.
When to wear a “dating condom”?
My darling, you must be more careful. You should know by now with all the experiences you’ve had that you’re not a trash spot. If they are not making conscious effort to be in your life, please leave them with no second thought. It’s your life you know. Better to be alone than be emotionally messed up.
I remember a friend of mine that cried a number of times because the love cards did not favour her… The only advice I could think of giving her was to allow love be for now, be whole as a single, find new ways to loving herself more and somehow, love would find her. This worked for me though and I pray it does for her.
Come to think of it, this piece is not strictly on emotions only, you can apply it to physical, psychological, and financial aspects of your life. The most important thing is that the condom is used.
This year 2020,don’t go everywhere…
Don’t do everything…
Don’t allow everything…
Ensure that you are emotionally protected. Learn to say no when you need to.
Do not trade your happiness for anything.
Stay alone if it gives you peace of mind.
Read good books and keep good company.
Invest and help humanity this year.
From my janded empire,I wish you a 2020 of progress and good tidings. Cheers.
