One of the best things about getting married is the fact that over the next few months we'll have the opportunity on several occasions (as we're Nigerian lol!) to bring together our family, friends, colleagues, and loved ones together and enjoy the cause of celebration in style.
This is the obvious phrase hurled about when talking about friendships. Friendships are a pervasive aspect of human life. The fundamental element to any relationship being friendship, whether it underpins a marriage, a parent-child relationship, extended family ties, old friends, or your regular platonic relationships – just name it. The tie that binds is friendship.
Over summer, we had the opportunity to have dinner with the beautiful blogger Finally Fiona and her awesome husband Laolu Kolade. We shared, talked and laughed about balancing work and purpose, protecting your marriage as you share your life on social media, faith and what they’ve learned in their first two years of marriage.
So firstly, I wanna thank you all for the amazing response to part 1 of “Where are all the guys at”! I’m still alive, no death threats received so I can poke my head above the parapet and issue part 2!
So it’s time to forge a case for the guys… and I’ll respond in kind to the points made in my previous article. I hope that this piece will unearth some home truths for the ladies to go chew on.
Insecurities. Whether we stunt, front, put up a wall, use sarcasm to hide it or openly bear them, insecurities are something we all have.
The difference between whether they make or break us is firstly our ability to acknowledge them and secondly the courage to manage them.
The other day I was asking myself, why do I often try to hide my insecurities? I came to the conclusion, a lot of it was down to not wanting to be judged by others or as a businesswoman, I often want to appear like I know what I’m doing and have my stuff together.
