Welcome to my blog today. I'm really glad to have you her!
Of recent, I have had lots of friends selling off everything they own to travel overseas. Once their minds were made up, there is nothing you can do or say to stop them, so you just have to let them go and pray that their reasons for travelling out pulls through.
"Hey, Oge, long time no see. Where have you been?", Amaka asked her friend.
"My dear, I've been running round trying to sell off the remaining of our things before we travel out", Oge said happily.
"Haba! But I remember telling you that you shouldn't sell your things off because you don't know what is in store for you over there?", Amaka cautioned her friend.
"You are too negative. I don't know why I still consider you my friend", Oge retorted.
"Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. I just want you guys to keep some assets in case things to go as planned", Amaka explained.
"You see what I'm saying. You are an enemy of progress. Because my husband wants to travel out you are jealous. Shift let me pass joor", Oge said in an angry tone. She walked past Amaka and went her way.
Oge and her husband, James, succeeded in selling off their properties at give-away prices. Soon, James travelled out while Oge went to live with her parents.
After months of toiling and suffering overseas, James was sent back to his country. At first, he was so ashamed of himself and didn't know where to start from but he summoned courage and returned to his family.
The wife sighted him and could not recognize him until he got to their apartment.
"What happened, honey", she asked amid tears.
"It's a long story, dear. Let's go inside first", James said in a low tone.
It had happened that when he got there (overseas), the person he had arranged to stay with until he got an apartment of his own, turned him out. All arrangements that he thought were in place weren't. He had been defrauded. He struggled to see if he could make something out of the situation but was unable to until the authorities got hold of him and sent him back.
What am I saying? Now, he's back to square 1. No landed properties, no apartment, nothing to call his own. Wisdom, they say, is profitable to direct. Financial plans is not something that should be rushed into. You have to seek for
professional financial advice when you think you are in need of it. I am no professional financial adviser but I knew the step they were taking wasn't the best at the time.
Be open to people's opinions and suggestions because most times, friends aren't actually jealous of you but want the best for you.
Thanks for your time.
