Ten (10) years of marriage, wife 30 years of age and soldier 35 years of age; this is how it ended. 2016 is in full swing, and absolutely no lessons have been learnt from the said types of killings as reported in 2015. Where do we go from here in our advice to man/woman affair? No where……………..
We live in a society where our people are heartless, devoid of love in the truest sense of the word and are obsessed with the ‘ego’. Those whose belief system is bordered on obsession, control, greed, displaying weakness of mind, body and spirit will undoubtedly continue on this trajectory. Until they empower themselves recognising that worship is designed not for man/woman but a supreme being your advice will always fall on deaf ears. Where does empowerment comes from? First it starts with willingness, openness to grasp the fact that you are owed nothing on Planet Earth, much less from a man or woman. Your relationship is not for ‘sale’. You are an individual and your self worth does not reside in the affections of man/woman. You do not have the capability to change a single soul. If it appears you have done so by threats, or control, it usually is short lived hence the ultimate act of weakness murder/suicide.
