You are selfish!
What type of person is this Hon. Psalm sef? For about 4 months I’ve not read from him only for him to pop up now to tell me I am selfish. Me, I am not selfish o. Maybe you are selfish sha.
We are selfish!
Forgive my manner, I should at least greet you!
It is still a glorious Saturday here, glorious Christmas and enriching New Year to you in advance. How is everything over there? Did you really miss me? Confess o.
But, don’t you think the society is selfish?
Have you noticed that the society seems to shun some people, tolerate some people and celebrate some people?
Some people seems to get no respect at all, they are ignored even by their immediate family members. Why some people are honoured and respect even beyond their continent.
It’s because the society is in need. And only those that meet the needs of society are desirable.
The society is full of people who need things. And those people are not interested in your personal challenges but what you have to offer.
People need things that can increase their earnings and reduce their expenses.
People need a better furniture, shoes, electronics, cloths, photography, website, soaps. People need healthy food. People need people to build their houses. People need better services and products.
The fact is, we (you and I) will only celebrate anybody with the solution to our problem.
We are so selfish that we will ignore you if what you have is problem to the existing solutions.
The truth is, the moment you came into the world, you became part of a system designed purely to see to people’s needs.
Until you start meeting a need, you will not be needed.
It is your sole responsibility to build your capacity to meet more needs.
Forgive me but the truth is; no matter how kind, generous, educated, talented and polite you are, you will be ignored by the society if you are not doing anything to make the world better.
You are estimated by the sum total of your useful skills. People need to know you are responsible. They need to be sure your education, talent, skills, etc are asset to you, your family and the whole world.
People have needs and thus assign value to the people who meet their needs, These are simple mechanisms of the universe and they do not respond to our wishes.
I’m asking, “what do you offer? Are you talented? Creative? Smart? Funny? Interesting?”
If yes, what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? How is it useful to the world.
Hope I never vex you? Make I come dey go abi?
Anyway, I am still your Brother;
