4 things I would never do for love

08 October 2015, 15:30 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - What would I do for love? What would I not?

Sacrifice myself for someone else

Women tend to forget to take care of themselves because we are apparently meant to be nurturing and caring. We never realize how much of a shell we create within us while we are at it. They come in portions and they are progressive such by the time you realize it, you have nothing else to give.

There is a very small pool of people that should ever put you in a situation of such or any type of sacrifice: your children, your husband only if he is one of the good guys, a small fraction of your family that actually has ever been there for you and the odd friend or two. The other people should mentally get your middle finger. People are only in love with how much of a need they have for you in their lives, take it out and see how first they disperse. Do not sacrifice yourself cheaply and needlessly, do it for those who matter.

Fight for the/ a man

There is a saying; ‘you can never keep a man that does not want to be kept!’ It is not hard to decipher. It is pretty simple. If he is your husband or boyfriend, that is because he wants to be. If he is a man that is showing you he has choices and you are not his priority. Let him go. You are not in love with him but just love the idea of loving him. You love someone who is yours not someone you have to haggle for or someone who ever puts you in that situation for you to fight for him like a prized bull.

Quit a job

We love our men, don’t we? We just love the men that we end up marrying and it is for this reason that a lot of women get hooked into the, ‘stay at home and take care of the children’ line. There are so many ways to look at this; your finances, the lifestyle you live/ want to live and how much your career matters to you. Then make your decision. If you are not comfortable with this, then do not do it to please someone. That is compensating not compromising because it reaches a point and the same one who told you to quit now wonders why you have nothing to do with yourself.

Be a fool

As a woman you need to know how to be classy, sophisticated and poised. There are just some things that should never get the best of you.  Actually nothing should ever get the best of unless it is a funeral, then you are allowed. A woman will drive you to anger, a man will drive you to insanity and some drama, money will create confusion, alcohol will create a fool and your child will test you. How you handle your life will show your level of maturity. You do not have to be perfect but people do not need to see you being brought down. They enjoy it and they like having opinions.
