Life Of Harriet (TTRWT)- By Amy4me.

I'm so like her and it hurts so much. I love to come to conclusions about how other people feel without giving them that freedom of thought which would allow them to have other thoughts. I love to agonize over my conclusions. Worse still,the recipient of this character of hers happens to be me. Who am i talking of? My sweet mother. If i could turn back the hands of time, i would start afresh in her womb. 

Things started going wrong from the day i was conceived. Right now, I'm so scared about having children. What if i become mother all over again? What if they are like me? The circle would just continue. All i want right now is a family and a life of my own but what if it turns out to be a replica of my old family? 
My name is Harriet Walters and my mother hates me because she thinks i hate her, but what she doesnt know is that i love her so much. 

She is always saying that no other woman can handle us her children and i thought that was just talk. Now i know better having spent a few years in the household of others. I am an outcast in my own family but i swear i have never experienced the feeling of belonging anywhere else except when am in this room i call mine in my mother's house. I really dont know how to tell people what am going through when i want to bare my soul. 

How are they supposed to understand that i have no father and no mother but yet my parents are alive and i live with one? Who would believe that i am a tenant in my own mother's house? My ex-boyfriend never did understand, he thought the whole thing was silly but i dont blame him. He is not living my life,is he? The one before the ex before him understood perfectly. Yes, i know i have had more than a few relationships than normal but what did you expect? I had to feel loved but i have learnt now that a boyfriend is not a sibling nor is he a parent. 

And being Harriet, of all the males i attract usually with my obscenely curvy body, i normally go for those who have problems like i do. Seriously,how on earth did i fall in love with a 44yr old man with a wife who cant give birth so she left him and yet he hasnt divorced her. He also loved me though but i had to finish school first but he needed children faster than i wanted out of school. 

Ah yes school, that was my sanctuary but it has become my doom. I was never a school book reader but give my an exam and i would teach the teacher a few lessons. So i have always used my time to expand my horizon. I know more of law than a law student. I could think up more ways to save the economy than an economist student. God somehow gave me the grace to be one of the best medical students when my textbooks always had dust on them. But in the most important examination of my life,the almighty Second MBBS that would determine if am fit to further in medicine, i managed to fail. 

Thats right, fail! Mother has had a nice time gloating over it. I have heard that God doesnt like people who hate themselves like i do. Ah yes,i hate myself for hooking up with a diabolical man. Isnt it funny? Father thinks mother is diabolical and mother thinks father is diabolical. And i live with mother and talk to father. Am double diabolical. My siblings are only single diabolical since they only live with mother and pretend that father is dead. Just how did this all begin???

  3. Harriet sounds like she's in a maze without even knowing how far in or out she's wandered.
    She'll get salvation when she consistently steps out of all such thoughts that says she has to go the way of her mother or father, and make her own life what she wants of it.
    Good write up.

  4. Very True @cccc. Harriet seems lost in a Bubble she built. If this isn't fiction, then she has to get away from it all cos the yrs are passing fast & so is her life.
    Don't waste it trying to fit into ur family. Run ur race & they might decide to catch up to ur pace including ur almighty mum...

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
