Have you been in that stage when you will boldly declare… I need help !!! can somebody help me because really, I need help. That period when you seem to have done e everything within your power yet, every achievement seem so slow. While some seem to be having just everything they need in their lives, some others seem to be struggling big time to make it in life.
Someone once said to me; crying has become a norm in my life because everything I have done seemed to have failed me. Everything looks hopeless no matter the amount of effort I put. At 40 years of age, I am yet to marry; he said. Not because I’m not in a relationship but because I have no stable source of income to take of of myself not to talk of taking care of my woman; worst still, how will I feed the kids when they start arriving; he said to me. Really, I Think I Need Help.
I remembered sitting so calmly; allowing this young handsome man in front of me to talk and pour out his heart to me. I have fasted he said as he continued, prayed, I have gone for more than four interviews in a space of one year, I have woken up so very early in the morning going all out to secure a job, I am even ready to put my credentials aside and do any job that comes my way but the problem remains I’m still yet to get a job …even the very list job. What do you want me to do?
The government cares less for the citizen, it is just a struggle of every man to himself …
When will my own break through come? When will I be the man? When will the search for a job end? When will I make good capital to start up my own business? Can someone please tell me because this whole experience is driving me so crazy; i need help; I feel like giving up…let me just end the whole thing. Why is life hard on some? he said.
Not knowing if that was a statement or a question, I waited for him to continue but he kept looking at me as if trying to say; what do you have to say?
After about five minutes of silence, with a smile on my face, I said to him; well, thank God you are alive and in good health because there are many out there that seem to have everything yet, they don’t have the good health and peace to enjoy all the good thing they have. So, for you, there’s something to be thankful for.
But what I will further say to you is…don’t give up for there’s still hope for the man who is alive. You need to encourage yourself to be strong in the journey of life; not giving up but staying strong and taking one day at a time; doing your best every day; leaving no stone unturned then leave the rest for God. I believe this is just a season, a phase in your life that will surely pass away even before you know it. All I can say now is: in everyday of your life, keep doing all that you can do to better your life; so that when opportunity comes, it will meet you prepared. Keep moving forward and go all out to seek the opportunity you need for in the race of life, this might just be your own waiting time. So, be strong for things will get better with time and you will soon forget the Period for waiting.
He looked at me with a smile and said; thanks for the words of encouragement.
In life, people go through lots of experiences…so, in the stages of life; what stage are you right now?
