How I learned to Overcome the fear of Love & Relationships

How I learned to Overcome the fear of Love & Relationships


In a Whatsapp group I belong to, someone shared a story of how she’s afraid to have a relationship; a relationship in this sense; between a man & a woman.

This past weekend, my church, the Common Wealth of Zion Assembly Abuja had a conference with Bishop TD Jakes. On Saturday, the crowd was crazy, but I did not expect that there would be a repeat of that crowd on Sunday. Never the less, I still made a mental note that I would be there very early.

Don't Ignore the Red Flags/Banners

Don't Ignore the Red Flags/Banners


Hello everyone, I hope you all had a productive week? Today I will like to talk about red flags or better still what I call Red Banners.

Why is it so hard for us especially women to recognize red flags for what they are? Why? The truth of the matter is that all of us, in our heart of heart know when someone is right for us or not.

In this world of bitterness & hate, Be different!

In this world of bitterness & hate, Be different!



I have come to the unfortunate discovery that the society we live in, have an abundance of bitter people. Or like in popular culture; haters.
