One of my favourite Nigerian actresses, Angela Okorie is out there on social media dishing some thought-provoking advises to her followers.
Angela touched on marriage/relationship issues, advising women not to allow a man to tell them not to work and that he’ll solely take care of her.
She also advised women against using their resources to build up a man from the scratch.
“I don’t like it when people say You have to build a man from ground to the top, Building a man is not really the problem but forgetting ur self while building him is the problem, you must always understand that u also have some growth to do too
Oh yes u can Support him
You can Encourage him
But don’t you ever forget that u are the first priority
You have a lot of work to do on ur self
Focusing on him than your self is so wrong
Now Focus on the woman u planned to become,
If you continue to focus on him alone
You will be broken and might regret it later
Cos u we’re busy building some1 else
For Everyone story that was
I can show you a thousand more
Where there was a damage ,hurt,
And disappointment .
Some men will ask their wives not to work
That he will provide everything
When things start getting bad
He will not understand it’s a phase
That will pass
He will turn around and say the woman is a witch that made him broke
forgetting he practically asked her not to work, no supporting hand
Blaming her for being broke
Women don’t ever agree to that
Women are help mate we know,
But that Doesn’t mean she should
kill ur self,
Help him grow but don’t forget u are the first priority.
U should be able to do some things on ur own too without u calling yoursweetheart all the time for help.
You can build an empire together
If u both are growing
I don’t know who needs to hear this”
Cheers ? to the weekend ??
