Wicked Love.


That sounds like the name of a Nollywood movie I know, but it isn't. It's just something that baffles me, especially when I see comments like the one below. 




"if u are tired of his cheating still go back home since he didn't threaten you like my husband who whenever he makes me angry and I tell him i want to leave him and run away he will swear that I will never leave him that our marriage is 2gether 4ever that if I dare he will kill me and kill our daughter too, but I still love him alot cos behind that harsh controlling man there's a good man who loves me like hell, just that his love is wicked but he doesn't cheat on me or beat me never! But he controls me a lot."

So today I saw a number of comments from women dating or married to (emotionally) abusive men. I was both appalled and amused to see that a large number of them think it's a sign of love when a man threatens them, either threatens to beat them, threatens to kill them or threatens to kill their kids. They said "it's a sign of love". A few said when a man is so mean or wicked it's because he loves you, it's love that drives him to the point where he becomes so agitated and threatens your life. 

I would have laughed this off had I not seen quite a number of people who agree with this line of reasoning. This question might be inane but I need to ask it because usually when a guy shows me a little bit of viciousness I fleeeeee. But have I been wrong all this time? Could it be that it's his love for me that pushes him? Is love "wicked"?

  1. Very amusing and sad when I hear abused women trying to analyze the positive angle of the character(istics) of an abusive he-goat. Issorai. Remain naive y'all.

  3. T life is so complicated, a lot of people are in abusive marriages but cannot leave because they ve nowhere to go to, i mean where do u even start from, ll you go back to your parents house when they r afraid of being judged or do u rent a house n stay alone thr with your kids, its easy to advice those women to leave before he kills you but trust me its a really really tough decision. Being abused makes people mentally unstable in that you ll find yourself making excuses for the abuser, and abusive people are also very manipulative therefore making it almost impossible for thr victims to see them as harmful, quitting an abusive relationship is like quitting drugs, it requires courage, decision and the grace of God to say you are DONE!!

    1. It sure takes a whole lot to leave but it is the most reasonable decision if victims want to stay alive.
      I am hoping the society can accelerate their acceptance of these decisions; Arowolo is waiting for the hangman, the wife is dead and their only child will never experience parental care or love. A separation would probably have taken care of these unwanted consequences.

  4. Better continue to flee if you love your life! People are just plain sick, what is the fate of those of us that cannot show that kind of love.

  5. I agree with you Wale, there is no point managing with an abusive partner (male or female). You will just die for nothing.

    It's a tough decision, but life iis too precious to gamble with it in the name of " love"

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.
