Stop Feeling Entitled.

I really appreciate the fact that you still click on the link to Ruonaahsculture, despite my inconsistency. I am really working on it, believe me.

Did you know that sickness can humble somebody? If I had listened to my mum when she was telling me to buy anti-malaria drugs, this story would have been prevented. Anyways, sickness humbled me. You should have seen Oseruona, looking like a shadow of herself. I mean, a sick person will just be helpless, surrounded by good food that the person cannot eat and totally dependent on drugs. Today, that’s behind me and I’m so grateful because I do not take God’s blessings for granted.

Forgive my manners.

How are you doing? I hope you’re good because I am great. I know I’m great because I have regained my appetite and I have eaten Starch and Banga soup, Fried rice and Beef, a Snickers bar and Pringles which I joyfully digested with coke and water in the space of five hours today. In my defense, today is world food day and God has allowed me to be a part of it 🌚

So, I haven’t been to school for the past two days because of my ill health and I forgot that time will not stop moving because of me. I got to class today and lo and behold:

I mean, I have so much work to do! The pressing issue right now is this group assignment that is due on Monday. Oseruona is tired. She wants to rest, please.

My stressed face is not your mate.

Moving away from all that, I just want to remind you that you are not entitled to anybody’s time. Some people need space sometimes and it does not mean that they do not love you. You cannot always be the center of someone’s universe all the time because like it or not, we all live separate lives and I’m sorry, but these people may not be there for you all the time and that is something you should accept.

Someone tweeted that some of you call your busy friends fake, forgetting that we’re not children anymore, forgetting that we all have priorities. Nothing stops you from checking on someone that you haven’t heard from instead of waiting for him or her to check on you. As far as I’m concerned, it is baseless pride and it cannot be emphasized enough.

Personally, I feel that if you’re not adding value to someone’s life, don’t expect that person to stick around. You cannot always be the one at the receiving end at all times. The appalling part of this situation sometimes is when a person who has been on the receiving end for so long starts to get offended when he or she stops getting those benefits. These people are selfish and they try to cage these ”friends” because of their benevolent natures, somehow convincing themselves that it is their right. This is just plain wrong.

The world does not owe you anything, dear. As a matter of fact, it is not anybody’s job to make you happy so if you decide to place your happiness in that busy friend, you will only have yourself to blame.

At this point, I’m just going to say how much I’m going to miss some of my friends in their 400 level, Medicine who are leaving Abraka to Oghara to continue their studies. Some of them are avid readers of Ruonaahsculture and they may not know it but they really made Abraka colorful for me. I’ll miss you guys so much. Don’t be surprised if you start seeing me at Oghara from time to time. 🌚 Please come and visit. I’m so proud of you guys.

I’m going to work on that assignment now.

Love,

’Ruona ❤️

P.S:

Have you been in a position where someone felt that he or she was the center of your universe?

Has someone ever made you feel like you owed them anything?

Do you have any suggestions to better my consistency? I mean, I know I’m a lazy writer. Help me.

Who enjoyed world food day?

Have you treated malaria lately? I’m asking now, so don’t say I’ve not done any good thing for you.

  1. Wow! It’s almost as if we’re one person and yes I recently told someone I needed space and they started acting like I killed their parents. I should forward this to that person.

  3. This write-up is superb, because this topic is important. In most friendship, there must someone that acts immature or foolish on baseless pride, if you don’t do the checking up, they will pick offense. I will like to forward this to my friends, so that they can see for themselves and try acting mature.
    P. S i have taken my anti-malaria drugs. Pls eat and get fat biko

  4. I think I’m facing this issue of priority right now. I feel my friend doesn’t love me anymore, but she’s just so busy. I just tried to place myself in her shoes and relate it with my tight school schedule and exams stress and got to find out that we are all ‘busy’. But that doesn’t mean we don’t love our friends.

    I love what you do girl💓💓💪💪

    1. Exactly, the fact that you may not have all the time in the world for each other, anymore doesn’t mean that love isn’t there. However, you must try to make time out so that you don’t grow apart.

      Thank you for reading, babe!

  5. One way or the other, every human has felt entitled to another soul for a moment or more. It’s natural as us humans have that annoying desire to have all the attention all the time. Well, thank God for maturity and Asak Ruona for opening our eyes to the truth. We all have one way or the other become pests to friends. Know your limits and worth. Let’s all go into lives, positively influence, add value and leave on a good note.

  7. Please don’t be too loud with the consistency sub shhh 🥺💔😂 And getting healed after being sick is a miracle that one shouldn’t take for granted coz it’s like one moment you’re down and the next you’re just so active and full of life. And concerning being entitled, I deal with that everyday and even when you check on certain people they still go like well done o or forgetter of people like they are not aware of the fact that you work or have other engagements. Nice post dear ✨🔥
