Physical Bondage

Hello Guys! It’s been quite long since I interacted with you’all with my write-up. Hope you’all are doing well. Okay, so in my previous write-up I talked about freeing yourself from emotional bondage. I hope it really helped you’all. So today, I want to talk to you about Physical Bondage then move to psychological and spiritual bondage and that will be the end of my bondage series. So are you ready? If then let’s proceed.

So let me ask this question? Have you ever been physically abused? I’m pretty sure some of you may have had close experience or some sort of experience with physical abuse. Before I dive in and talk about physical bondage, first of all I would like to tell you what it means to be in physical bondage. Physical Bondage is the state of being bound by or subjected to some external power or control.

Most people are physically abused by their peers, spouses , parents , colleagues at work, bosses and so on and so forth. They are afraid to stand up for themselves or come out of it because they are severely threatened by the abuser.

I recall one experience between a couple. This was told by the victim as to what happened. One night, the wife went to put her daughter to bed and went to her room to rest for sometime. The husband came home late and was very drunk. He went to the room where his wife was and asked her if she has seen his phone. She said ‘No’. He became very furious to the extent that he went to the kitchen to pick a knife and came back to the room and pointed it towards the wife, meaning if he doesn’t get his phone from her, he will stab her. The wife said she hasn’t seen the phone. The daughter woke up due to the noise and came in between her parents to stop the fight. It seems the father was really burning up, so the wife had to run out of the house with her daughter following her. Hmm! Not knowing the phone was in the daughter’s room. So the wife decided not to sleep in the house and left with her daughter. The husband has been abusing the wife for a long time but she was finding it very difficult to come out of it because she was physically bonded. What a sad story!

My lovely people we are humans. We shouldn’t take advantage of other people and end up hurting or abusing them physically. Its very disheartening to see another human being go through a serious bondage in which they find it difficult to free themselves. We are one people created by the same God, we should let love abide in our heart. Even though we are humans and display different characters and are brought up from different backgrounds we should bare in mind that we are equal before our creator and should rather show love and care to one another.

We need to come together as one and portray love to each other. If you are physically bonded by something which is suppressing you to the extent you want to give up in life. Let me tell you this,”You shouldn’t allow yourself to be an object which can be easily tossed around. You are worth it, and no one can keep you in bondage forever. It’s up to you to be in charge of your own body and mind because it’s all about you and no one else. Remember, your future is up to you!

Freeing Yourself From Emotional Bondage!

Hello y’all! Hope you are doing well! So in my previous write-up, I said that I’m going to talk about how I freed myself from emotional bondage. Ready! Let’s go! So one thing that helped me out of emotional bondage was I gave myself time to heal. I found it very difficult to let go of my wounds which was caused by how some people took me for granted, humiliated and discouraged me. All these thoughts emerged into something dangerous which was severely affecting me emotionally. But I asked myself how I can heal from these painful wounds which was severely burning inside of me, until I read this quote by Kevin Hart which says “laughter heals all wounds, and that’s one thing that everybody shares. No matter what you are going through it makes you forget about your problems. I think the world should keep laughing.” Wow! Powerful quote there! At times when people do certain things to offend you , you just have to laugh about it and move on with your life. This quote really helped me to the extent that whenever I’m entangled with unnecessary thoughts, I try and laugh about it and forget about it because it’s not worth it. So I decided to replace my wounds with laughter which has healed me from any emotional bondage.

  • Be responsible for your own happiness: Exactly! Everyone born on this earth have his or her purpose they have to achieve. You shouldn’t wait for someone to make you happy. You have to be determined to excel at all cost without depending on anyone to make your dreams come into reality. You must be in charge of your own happiness. You shouldn’t wait for someone to create happiness in your life. You must create your own happiness and be happy about who you are!
  • Make peace with your past: One way to break free from emotional bondage is to make peace with your past. In our past lies experiences that we may not be proud of or regret. Certain experiences in our past depletes our energy and happiness such that we fail to consider the good things that life has in store for us. We cling to thoughts or experiences of how bad someone has treated us or how unfairly people we trusted betrayed us. It’s human to be angry, sad and cry for a while as a way of releasing and expressing our emotions. However, anything beyond this is poisonous to your soul.

In order to move on and free yourself from the bondage of holding on to our past, you must first make peace with yourself and your past and then acknowledge that you deserve the best this life has to offer. This mindset is necessary because it will liberate you mentally and psychologically and you’ll begin to draw inner strength to stay away from the emotionally bonded thoughts that has enveloped you. In other words, you will need to make a conscious effort to break away from anything that doesn’t give you peace of mind so that you can enjoy and experience the fullness of life gifted to you by God. Know that the future holds better promises than the past. Our past becomes a memory and the only thing relevant in our past is the lessons we learned so that we can become wise and make a better future. Time is moving fast and the past is not a place to dwell. Our present is our truest reality, therefore you must make the most out of it.

  • Stop thinking negative: Negative thinking is basically a thinking pattern that is skewed towards the worst-case scenario in any given situation. You see the bad in every situation whereas you could have just seen the brighter side of it. Negative thinking is like poison to your soul. It robs you of your happiness and peace. Positive thinking is like a light in the darkness( Emotional Bondage). It gives you the opportunity to see and feel positive vibes deep within your soul and spirit. In so doing it liberate you from anyone that’s projecting a negative feeling to you. It enables you to dissociate and free yourself from things or people that keep you hostage to emotional bondage and emotional blackmail. Someone who genuinely loves you won’t make you suffer emotionally but rather inject positive feelings and love into your spirit.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others: Everyone’s life is different. God created everyone differently in terms of colour, height, face and so on and so forth. You all have a great purpose you have to accomplish here on earth. Don’t allow inferiority complex dictate to you, else it will lead you astray. Most people compare themselves to others because they don’t understand why they can’t enjoy the same benefit another person is enjoying. Look! Your life and purpose is different from them.There will come a time whereby you will enjoy whatever you are yearning for! Just be grateful and love who you are and make sure you become a better version of yourself by being determined to achieve your aspirations in life. Free your mind and live well!

Emotional Bondage 2!

Hello Y’all. Hope y’all are doing well! So, from my previous write-up, I talked about two individuals who were in a relationship and how one was affected emotionally. Let’s continue then!

From the onset, you realize that Kobbey was kept in that circle and was finding it difficult to come out of it because he allowed his emotional thoughts to dictate to him and could not free himself from that bondage. Most of us are so aggressively bonded by our emotions and find it difficult to come out if it. We are humans, and definitely have emotions that we find it difficult to control.

But the question is, why should you be a slave to your emotional thought? To be a slave to your emotional thoughts means that you don’t have that capacity or strength to be willing to come out of that bondage which has entangled you to the extent that you struggle to come out of it. I will say that what causes people to have serious emotional thought can be due to breakups in love relationships or a divorce, abusive marriages, pain, anger, hatred, jealousy, envy, sadness, inferiority complex, etc. My lovely people, you shouldn’t allow all these thoughts to take control over you. If you know who you are and what you are worth, you will not allow your emotions to take control over you and prevent you from achieving your purpose in life. I know that as humans, we all have feelings and it’s very difficult for us to control our feelings, but we shouldn’t allow our feelings to win or keep us in that circle of being totally bonded emotionally.

So many people have done things to hurt me, humiliate and even to weaken my spirit. At a point in time, I became emotionally attached to my thoughts and I found it very difficult to come out of it. It wasn’t easy for me but eventually I came up with a solution to free myself from that emotional bondage.

Before I end, I would encourage y’all to ponder over all that I have said and try to put it into practice. Don’t allow your emotions to lead you to become the worse version of yourself. Remember that emotions are part of your mental health, so you need to be mindful of how to control your thoughts without it affecting your mental health. I will talk about how I freed myself from emotional bondage in my next write-up.

Emotional Bondage 1!

Hello y’all! I trust y’all are doing well! Today, I have an interesting topic I would like to talk to you about! In my previous write-up, I talked about Bondage. Now, I want to chip in and talk about emotional bondage in line with relationship affairs involving two individuals. Before I proceed, I would like to tell you my understanding of the meaning of emotional bondage. Emotional bondage can be defined as a mental thought or feelings that keep you in the circle of being totally bonded. Do you want answers to this? Then let’s proceed and learn something new from this story. This is a story or scenario between two individuals in a relationship .

Kobbey and Chantelle met on Facebook and became friends. Kobbey is a young banker while Chantelle is a self-employed budding fashion designer.One thing that drew Kobbey’s attention to Chantelle was her beauty and her fashion designing sense that he admires. After a couple of weeks of friendship, Kobbey proposed to Chantelle and they started dating. From the beginning of the relationship things were moving very smoothly between them because they loved each other dearly. After a few months into relationship, Chantelle began to slack off in the relationship while Kobbey’s commitment to the relationship was very high because to him Chantelle was his dream girl and the future looks certain. For a while, Kobbey thought it was a passing issue so he wasn’t really bothered about Chantelle’s lack of commitment in the relationship. Her attitude continued poorly and that became an issue for him.

Upon discussions between them, Chantelle revealed to Kobbey about her ex boyfriend and how he was self employed and managing his own affairs. According to her she prefers Kobbey to be self employed like her ex. After some deep thought, Kobbey thought it wise enough to engage in a venture that will enable him to gain more leverage by doing extra businesses to make his girlfriend happy and to feel content with him. It was difficult for Kobbey to live another man’s vision for the sake of his girlfriend. The more he tries his best to make things work in the relationship, his girlfriend keeps distancing from him emotionally. This became a major worry for Kobbey to the extent that he forsake his own happiness just to go the extra mile to make Chantelle happy but it seems all his efforts goes unappreciated and unrecognized. At this point, Kobbey was the only person working hard to hold the relationship together without any commitment from Chantelle. As bad as things have turned out, Kobbey could not let go of the relationship because he was emotionally attachedΒ  and entangled with Chantelle. As such, this has affected Kobbey’s work rate and performance at work and his overall happiness as a human being. Kobbey was psychologically affected. The sad thing about a toxic relationship or emotional bondage is that although you know you are not happy in the relationship, someway, somehow, you think that things will eventually turn around for good at the end. It becomes a cycle of false hope thinking you will be happy with the person someday. It’s a mirage which will never become a reality.

I would like to conclude here, so expect the continuation from my next write-up. Hope you enjoyed reading! Kindly like and comment and let’s get interactive. ByeπŸ˜„

Bondage Series

Freeing yourself from bondage!

Hello Y’all.I trust you are all doing well! Well today I’m coming to talk to you about an interesting topic which will keep y’all thinking!Ready,let’s go!

If we come to think of it, the word bondage has adversely taken control of the human race to a huge extent that it restricts or limit your ability to think sanely or have a meaningful healthy life. If we go back to history, our forefathers or ancestors were in bondage and it has now manifested in the present world. If we look back as to how those times the world was in slavery due to a dictator or a superior who just wants power. An example is the case of Africans who were enslaved by the whites. Africans were in bondage to the extent they could not voice out what they were going through because they were not given the right to speak! I’m sure at that time all the pains, humiliations, maltreatments and the beatings from the white folks really weakened their mental health!

Even though slavery ended several decades ago, our way of thinking has limited us in achieving our goals and ambitions. We unconsciously feel the bondage our forefathers went through and this has transformed us into thinking that no good can come out of Africa. As such, our leaders run to their colonial masters for grants and loans in a bid to achieve development and sustainability. For how long shall we subject ourselves into thinking we can’t do anything in our own unique ways?

Unfortunately, this fear of bondage and inadequacy has been transferred into the younger generation unconsciously. Until we break lose from our inferiority complex and bondage mentality we can’t go far. My encouragement to you all is that, you shouldn’t allow bondage take control of you or don’t allow anyone to put you in bondage for their selfish ways. In this world, there are so many people locked up in bondage in their families, marriages, relationships and so on and so forth.

But the question is, if you find yourself in a bondage situation are you going to be in it or find a way possible to free yourself? I will definitely flee! I will say that most people are not only bondage through the physical or spiritual way but it can happen when their emotions get to them to the extent they can’t control themselves.

Nevertheless, before you can free yourself from bondage, you must first identify whether you’re in an emotional, physical, mental or spiritual bondage. All these bondage manifest in similar fashion .i.e they limit you from achieving freedom, happiness, peace of mind and success. Without these elements, you cannot achieve your dreams and aspirations. Who has ever achieved success in bondage? Even Nelson Mandela could not become a president until he was out of prison(Bondage). It is only if you are free or overcome bondage that success can be realized or manifested.

I will end here for now. However, in my next write-up I will talk about the four types of bondage, namely: Emotional, Physical, Mental and Spiritual bondage and dive more into some tips on how we can overcome it. So watch out for more on this series as we explore more on the subject.

Be Like A Tunnel!

Hello Y’all! Today, I am going to engage you in another interesting topic which will blow your mind! Ready, let’s go! So I’m going to talk to you about what a tunnel is and relate it to our lives!

Ok! So my definition of a tunnel is a passageway dug through the rock or earth and enclosed except for an entrance and exit. Just like tunnels, our lives go through difficult and challenging periods but our ability to overcome them introduces us to an exit way and gives us the opportunity to learn, grow and become strong because those experiences toughens us in our pursuit of life’s ambitions.

In this present world, so many people are finding ways to get whatever they want in life. In order for them to get there, they have to pass through the tunnel and be courageous to fight for whatever that is inside the tunnel. It’s not going to be easy but it will toughen you up to be ready to overcome any obstacle that comes in your way.

One thing that has encouraged me and kept me going on in life is that, whenever I’m passing through a tunnel it does not only allow me to learn lessons or experiences. Do you know what it does to me? It energizes me and toughens me to continue with the race in life without giving up and gives me an assurance that I will eventually and definitely get to my finish line with God on my side.

There is a quote by Connie Ten Boon which says “When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer. Exactly! You must see yourself as the engineer driving the train, because you will go through a dark moment in your life. It’s bound to happen! You shouldn’t allow that dark moment or negative thought prevent you from coming out and getting to your destination. No! You must persevere hard and be wild like a lion in pursuing all your dreams to become a reality.

I want to encourage you all to enjoy life and be happy, cheerful, passionate and be determined to finish your journey and I believe you all will come out with a great testimony!

Thought For Today: Are you willing to allow God’s glory reign in your life?

Fear Series!

DON’T ALLOW FEAR TO GRIP YOU!

Hello My Lovely People! Hope you had a great weekend! Today I’m going to talk to you about FEAR. Let’s use an eagle as an illustration to chip in and associate it with overcoming fear.

Eagles exist as one of the bravest and fastest birds in the world. They are not afraid to approach their prey whenever they focus their eyes on them. Fear is a powerful weapon which can take control over your whole being and destroy you. I quite remember when my family was ransacked by burglars in our house at 12 midnight. They succeeded in taking my mom’s phone and just when they were attempting to take mine, suddenly the Holy Spirit woke me up. I immediately saw the burglar opening my room window and was about to take my phone, but I quickly grabbed my phone which was then on charge.

Gripped with fear I dashed to my mom’s room and woke her up. We then called the police to come and see if they can arrest the burglars. To cut things short, after that night’s incident fear took hold of me to the extent that I couldn’t sleep in my room again for days. LOL! I was battling with fear for some couple of days till the Holy Spirit dropped into my spirit to read 2 Timothy 1:7. I must say, it enabled me to overcome my fear because I kept declaring it each and every day. I was also aided and encouraged by my loved ones to think about constructive things which benefited me to move on to the subsequent level of my life.

As humans, we go through various persecutions and fear is one! Once it gets to you, certain things in your life begin to shift. Fear is a mental malady which can make you lose hope and prevent you from achieving your purposes. Most people are gripped with fear to the extent that it makes them traumatized and coax them with thoughts of committing suicide. I must say I’m also a victim.

However, I believe that once I have God why should I be afraid. There are so many things going on in this world which can halt you if you are not focused. Just like the eagle focuses it’s attention on it’s prey to avoid distractions, we must also focus our mind on God and positive things in order to avoid distractions(fear) from piercing into our Spirit. Many people are grieving and they desperately need remedy. Is high time for us toΒ  set a standard and go into the world to encourage others to have a healthy positive mindset by supporting them to achieve their expectations in life without fear!

Biblical Reference: 1 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us the Spirit of fear but the Spirit of power, love and self- discipline.

God Moves! πŸ™πŸ˜Š

Ohh yess! If God is moving in your life why then should you give up? This is the time where you have to fasten your seat belt and be ready to take up that challenge or trial that will come in your way.

Most at times I feel like giving up and not pressing forward to my finish line in life. Life’s challenges will hit me so hard to the extent of giving up on everything.

That’s how life can sometimes be my lovely people. You shouldn’t see life as something that can give you everything you want,you may lose important and valuable things which wasn’t meant for you. That doesn’t mean that you should give up in life, No!

Come out of your hiding place and move on! God is already moving and working in your life so why don’t you also move to make your life better!Most people find it difficult to move on with their lives due to discouragement from people, humiliation, depression, fear, anxiety,pain, unforgiveness and the thought of “I can’t make it in life”.

God doesn’t only move in your life through the physical or emotional way but through the spiritual way as well. So, toughen up and don’t allow anything to stop you from achieving your goals in life. God is moving and working in your life, even if you don’t see it immediately. He is moving in your life so be determined to move to the next level of your destiny. Stay blessed!

Anxiety Series!

Don’t Entertain Anxiety (1)

When I look back as to how God has brought me this far,I just marvel. At times I think about so many unnecessary things which will not benefit me at all. As humans there are so many things that we worry and think about, be it, shelter,food, clothen, money, our education, our businesses and so on and so forth.

It’s funny how we think of such things but still God answers us. Many people have anxiety because they are not satisfied with what they have.

Anxiety is a mental disorder which can affect the human brain to the extent that it will take control of you. As children of God, we shouldn’t allow anxiety to take hold of us. If we allow it to take control, we cannot be in charge of ourselves,whether psychologically, emotionally or spiritually.

I remember when I finished junior high school in 2015. I was waiting for my school placement to come but it didn’t come as at the time I was expecting it,so I became so furious, worried and depressed with the thought of committing suicide.

I didn’t know that all the delays in my school placement was preparing me for my breakthrough. To cut things short I will talk about my other life experiences in my next write-up on anxiety.

I will say anxiety is a dangerous tool which can inject fear and panic through your spirit and soul!

Therefore, we should not entertain anxiety to have its own way in our lives.

THINK ABOUT THIS!

Biblical Reference : Matthew 6:25-34
