The debate around when to love, how to spot the right person and what to do to maintain them forever, will never cease from the lips of people because aside from the stress that can sometimes emanate from the troubles of finding the right person, there is also the mountain level pressure from family and society.
Nigerian media sweetheart and author of ‘On Becoming’, Toke Makinwa shared her thought on when to love and why one shouldn’t rush into it. She wants women to understand the simple things around love and then make good use of it. Her Words are super correct.
Read her thought below:
‘This!!!! I saw this and screamed amen so loud same thing I was telling someone yesterday. It has nothing to do with you, stop blaming yourself for not receiving the kind of love you gave out, sometimes these things don’t work because they just aren’t meant to be and that’s ok. People don’t change for who they want, people change when the time is right and quite frankly growth happens when you let it. That “bastard” is someone’s future husband and guess what? She’s not going to see that side of him. Not excusing bad behavior but as I grow and learn, I realize this thing called love cannot be forced. Love yourself enough to swallow that jagged little pill called truth and walk away with your head high. You’ll meet your own king and you won’t need to beg or force him to treat you right. Ladies this one is for you.’
