In Her Shoes, Would You Take Him Back?

You know, this is something I've wondered about for so long. I'm fortunate to have been loved so deeply that I sometimes wonder what I did to deserve such wonderful love. But sometimes I ask, if something happened to me, if I fall terribly ill, or encounter an incident and become scarred, would that love remain deep and true?

Never at any point in time have I been able to say Yes to that question. Well, I guess you can never really know until you've had an experience (one we never would, by God's mercies).

There are two things here, should she forgive him and take him back? And, is her fear that someone else might never love her a good enough reason to take him back?

Be honest, if someone you love has an accident that scars them severely or even worse, would you stay?

  1. Without sounding superstitious, im suspecting karma caught up with him and this just started turning up for the worse. Prolly spoke to someone who told him to go beg her to have u him back.
    If that's the case, she might be a side chick or he wld hv a side chick till things stabilize for him...

    1. Yeah, I thought the same thing Sasha but she won't be a side chick. He will definitely have side chicks though.

      Before I go into a serious relationship I always try to see passed the physical. Fine, I admit I'm attracted to fine women but their heart is what keeps me. If they don't have a beautiful soul I just have sex and move on. In this case I'm 95% sure I'll stay regardless, provided I actually loved unconditionally.

      If she fears that no one will love her and that's her reason then I think she would always resent him for leaving her but if she genuinely still loves and misses him then I think she should forgive. The problem here is that she hasn't seen any other man to love her since the accident, that's why she's even considering forgiveness.

    2. i thought about that too

    3. The action she's taking in the predicament she finds herself right now is the action every other person should take, all things being equal. So I don't Blame her, life happened.

  2. Forgive and hope for the best. In your shoes i'll will find out what changed his mind. You can as well take advantage of the situation and ask him to put a ring on it as a condition.Yes yes I said it(in Chris rock's voice).

  3. She should forgive him. It will come to him as a shock. He must have needed time to get around the situation. Thankfully he did. He must have remembered the good time you both shared. I think she should forgive him.

    I have a friend who travelled to Jos to visit his fiancee. Just at the road to his destination, he had an accident and his leg had to be amputated. Omo, the girl broke off the engagement before he left the hospital. Since then, I swore never to be travelling upandan to be visiting girl friend abeg.

    At least this one came back begging. Omo forgive him jare.

    1. loooool.

      This life is just a pot of hot beans.


    2. Confirm pot of beans...Lol. Smh!

      Bullshit sort of existence.

  4. A dicey one I must say. Her inquiries are what she has to answer herself. It would be difficult for a third party to give an apt solution to the dilemma. To your last question; that would depend on the level of the relationship at the time of the accident, besides what's the assurance that a 'worse' fate wouldn't befall me later in life. Like Steele mentioned, I also try to look beyond the physical when picking a partner to forestall the fallibility of physical appearance.

  5. Forgive him but leave him alone. The person that will love you irrespective of your circumstances will come along. In life there are many challenges ahead of us and when someone shows you who they are - you better believe them. Today it is hot oil burns he abandoned you for, tomorrow it may be from not having a male child or being able to have kids at all. The simple truth about it all is that life happens- people who are willing to run when life happens will likely continue to run. Do you deserve thay level of instability in a partner?

  6. The guy na human being. You really cant blame him for moving on and searching for something better. Who amongst us wont the thought have crossed his/her mind. He thought about his future, he wasnt married to her, he had the option to move on and fine somebody more easy on the eyes. Its not fair, but its also fair. He had a choice.

    What she needs to do is try to understand his thoughts. Will he do the same if they were married? Some men will do things when they are single but never try it when they are married. They respect the institution.

    And then you cant deceive the heart. He has matured and understood that he cant deny the heart of what it wants. If she still loves him then Ill advice that she gives her heart what it wants.

    But dont ever ever say that nobody will love you. Many other men will accept you as you are.


  7. Forget what Kon is saying, this is about compassion and Mr. up there has none of it. How will you leave someone in a time of distress? There are many people who will say with you solely for the sake of your bad situation even though their heart is no more with you(this isn't right but at least we know they have compassion) but this one is just evil. She's already struggling with the forever scars on her face and then you decide its also a good time to break her heart?

    Me thinks the only reason he's back is the fact that good women are hard to find and he'd rather go back than do all the work again so why not just go back to the other lady. The problem with this scenario is you can bet that when things get hard in that relationship or if something "graver" than burns happens to you, he will most definitely leave you and he might not come back if he finds someone to distract him from you.

    As for the second question, her fear is very valid cos she's human but someone will come along. I don't think that fear is reason enough to take the run away boyfriend back. She should forgive him sincerely and move on with her life. Its not as easy as I've stated it but it is very doable.

    1. Question for you, if she has to forgive him sincerely and perhaps totally as you proffer, doesn't it also mean she is to accept him back as her partner?

  8. The truth is we are humans, the first thing that will come to an average Nigerians head is to pick race, lol, if that person stays at that time sef, trust me it isn't for love but out of pity. It's the honest truth, if something of such should happen am sure most of us will run initially *at least I know I will*. You can then think it through and find a way to go about it..... Sometimes sha, we overrate love

    1. Thinking of running is not the problem, in fact, if you don't think about running, I'll question your sanity but actually running? What was now the point of the 5 years together? What were you guys doing? What's the point of all the "I love you" if you run at the first sign of distress? What kind of love do you have toward each other, its most definitely not the lasting kind if you actually run in the time of adversity.

      Staying with you at your weakest and most vulnerable is not pity, its called commitment. I have chosen you above all others and come rain or sunshine, hot oil or acid, okada or car, I will choose you not because I pity you, but because I love you. It really is that simple.

    2. Madam sunshine, but she said he stayed but the intimacy waned as time went on. Not like he ran away instantly.

      Guess what, he's back now. She should now do her own shakara too (albeit till infinity, as U propose eh)

  9. My only issue is the last sentence. She needs to really work on her self esteem. It must've really gotten a hit after the incident. Sounds like she settling.....but how can one still love someone that did kind of thing to them?
    I am not sure I will be that nice though.

    I think if she decides to get back with him and they eventually get married,she might constantly have the fear of abandonment.

  10. Pls don't look at him twice. Leave his sorry ass where it is. Wat Nonsense! Mtcheeew

    On the other hand, u sound like u're still into him plus d fears u ve, just make guy for some time and ve fun while it lasts b4 accepting him bak.

    But err! Chai anyways, I'll stop here

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…


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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
