Dear Thelma... (A Friend In Need...)





Good morning T and the house. Please I need your advice on this issue. My best friend hooked up with her ex who was visiting the country and they didn't use protection because they used to be in a serious relationship. Now he has gone back to Canada and now she is pregnant. He is engaged even and his wife to be too is pregnant. My friend does not want to keep the baby which I think is the best idea she can have for now. My problem is that she wants me to follow her to the clinic because she cannot go alone. I have never done an abortion because  I am always very careful and I know abortion is not an option for me, because I feel like it is a big sin, like murder. I have heard pastors say that if you escort someone for an abortion you are just as guilty as the person in the eyes of God, is this true? Apart from that anything can happen there and I might be held responsible. Please I need advise, she is an only girl and doesn't have much friends she can trust except me so I know she needs me, but I don't really feel comfortable going there. Please what should I do?

  1. You agree with her decision so you are already guilty.

  2. My inner mind thinks the poster is the one pregnant. Poster, kindly tell your friend to keep the baby. This child will be great in future. This child will be a source of great joy to her family. I guess its a boy. Don't touch this child.. Thus says the holy spirit. LOL

  3. Damning the consequences of her actions...

    She needs to keep that baby!!!! How many tines are we going to say abortion is not an option?

    Do people know that when u take postinor within three days of having unprotected sex, you won't be pregnant?

    Trying to abort is like adding insult upon injury! *sigh!

  4. This is a tough one o. The first idea that popped in my head after reading this is to inform her mum or a family member anonymously. That way, the weight would be lifted off your shoulder a bit.

  5. I think u should come up with an excuse on that day mehn. Something very believable, even it means faking a call in d morning of that day, anything that ll make her understand that its not really ur intentions not to be with her on that day...
    Personally I can make up excuses 4 africa!

  6. Dear poster,abortion is a sin,if u follow her to the clinic,u are as guilty as ur frnd,she should keep the baby,she should have thought of d consequences of skin to skin bfa this,now she want to terminate an innocent baby,been a single mom is not a crime though,but killing an unborn child is .

    Mz indomie says so.

  7. It's not the best idea. The best idea would have been to use protection or better still, not have sex. Thank God it's a baby and not an STD. Tell her to take responsibility for her actions and keep the baby. The guilt that follows will keep her mind in captivity. You are already feeling guilty and you're not the one considering the abortion. Anything can go wrong, her life, her womb, her fertility .... please tell her to rethink, it's murder, however you look at it.

  8. I can't help but first state how stupid some girls can be. Your friend was very stupid. Your ex, that did not see it fit to engage you or marry you, you come and open leg for him. Anyway no point throwing the baby with the bath water.

    That said, the best advise is to keep the baby. You can either talk her into seeing reason or have no part in it.

    She is a grown adult and I hope she works, - assume so, since she has money for abortion) so that incase the sperm donor isn't interested, she can help herself.

    What is complications arise during the abortion, what if she can never have kids again.
    I know someone who ended up this way.

  9. Please tell her you do not support her decision as such, you are not able to accompany her there. Simple. It's better you forgo the friendship than do something against your values and conscience. Who knows? Your refusal may even make her have a change of heart and keep the baby.

  10. I once attended a deliverance service where people who had done abortions were called out, then people who had escorted someone, paid for an abortion, adviced someone to abort etc were also called out because we were all equally guilty. The next thing that was done surprised me a little, an impromptu funeral service was held for the souls of the unborn children. That's when I knew that I could never be in any way involved with an abortion ever again.

    Please advise your friend to keep the baby, you never know what it's destiny is. Don't be responsible for cutting it off.

  11. I don't think you should lose the friendship over your best friend's error. Although, I don't support abortion, if she decides to go on with the abortion, you shouldn't sacrifice your relationship over her indiscretion. Chris

  12. Poster, whether or not you follow her to the clinic, as far as you see nothing wrong in what she is doing/about to do, the sin has already been committed, your physical presence not withstanding.

    I don't think your friend should abort that pregnancy, abortion is never the answer. Plus, I'll keep saying it, people should learn to take responsibility for their actions. You slept with a (practically married) man, its not like you were forced or cajoled, you walked into the situation with your eyes opened and now its time to reap the rewards and you're trying to cut corners. Besides, any number of things can go wrong during an abortion. Both of you should think it well o. There are many things that are much worse than being a single mother, not being a mother at all cos of some silly mistake you made in the past is one of them. God help you and your friend o.

  13. Asides being a sin, it is also unlawful to indulge in, aid or abet abortion so be ready to be persecuted if caught. Advise ur friend not to abort the baby, its not the best thing to do.

  14. I am a single mother and that's because I'm pro-life. I take responsibility for my actions and I bear the consequencies. Plus, two wrongs never make a right.
    My Lil one is so handsome and I wouldn't trade him for anything else. Truth is, it's stressful but my aunt keeps reminding me of the numerous women who are married but taking care of their kids all alone - feeding, health, schooling, clothing, etc with no help from their husbands. Plus the baby's father acknowledged him and is part of his life.
    My advise to you is to keep that baby. Unless your heart is made of stone, the moment you have her in your arms, nothing else would matter.

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.
