The thunder roared and her metal windows gave a loud clanging sound which caused her to curl up closer to the wall. It was her first night away from home and the storms were raging. Nevertheless, the storms in her heart raged fiercer than the northern wind elements. Read the rest of this entry »

The rate at which cars break down in Lagos can be frustrating sometimes; as this often accounts for unprecedented traffic. But then, it’s incredible to see how efficient the authorities are in handling broken down vehicles. They’d always send a tow truck to the rescue.
Without a doubt, tow trucks are life savers! You know, as much as you’re more of a victim when your car breaks down and you’re almost helpless, other road users still see you as the villain, causing hold up and what not. But the tow truck comes and it’s almost like it’s saying ‘hey, I’ve got you. Just hop on my back and I’ll take you to safety’. Read the rest of this entry »
Thanks for sticking with me from the first letter, to the second, the third and now. I may be writing this to help you but it is helping me more. I think letting things out in the open helps. It makes us know we are not alone. I like listening to NF music because he says all the right things…the things I feel. In his words, ‘this is therapy for me’ 🙂
Depression and loneliness.
Sometimes I think it’s a cause and effect relationship, where depression causes loneliness or is it loneliness that causes depression? I don’t know anymore. Maybe it works both ways. Being lonely often gives room for the depression to invade completely. While being depressed also pretty much drives people away, leaving you lonely.

I know you hurt right now and the last thing you want to hear is that you should stay strong or just shake it off. I know there’s nothing I can say to you that you don’t already know. The worst part is, I know you think no one else understands what you’re going through. But I do, because I’ve been there. Thanks for reading the first and second letters.

I remember falling quite a number of times as a kid. I still have some scars to show. Which is normal of course! Kids fall a lot during the growth process. As an adult, I can’t really remember falling face down on the ground. Even when my foot hits a stone, I still manage to regain balance. I think falling down constantly as an adult is problematic.
