Advise for the angry and bitter Kenyan woman

31 May 2016, 16:03

Nairobi - I have noticed that people do carry a lot with them especially the Kenyan woman when it comes to men, relationships and marriage. 

By the way, if you did not know, that ages you. You are going to have a lot of wrinkles by the time you are hitting forty. Just saying. Anger, resentment and bitterness have a way of manifesting themselves into a lot of things that do not show up until it is too late.

Why are you mad; because someone did something to you a long time ago or recently? Guess what? You are not the first and neither are you the last. How you react to a situation is what actually determines whether you will be happier later on.

Just because there are a few mice in the granary does not mean you should burn the whole thing down

Listen, the other day I wrote an article about not wanting a Kenyan marriage. I do mean it but trust me if a good Kenyan man comes a long, I will not be stupid. Not all men are evil and you should not carry a grudge judging everyone by the stuff that made one man.

How about if men choose to judge you based on the character of the few amoral women we know.  Yesterday a friend of mine and her boyfriend were trying to ‘hook’ me up and as they were asking me what I wanted, her foreign boyfriend asked me if what I wanted was a sponsor. Not as an insult by the way but because of a few women we are now all looked like that is what we just want by most men especially those coming from outside. It has become like something you need to ask of a Kenyan woman so that you know where you stand with her as a man.

Plotting revenge is a waste of your time and energy

There was this thing on Instagram showing a Benz wrapped in plastic, cling film type of paper and we were all having a good time because this was an educated ex that chose not to break the windows. It was humorous but in hindsight I was just like, ‘God if I ever found the time to do such things, please kill me.’  You just need to move on with your life. While you are here trying to think of things to do to them to hurt them as you hurt, you are not even sure it will hurt them that much and you have just wasted your time. Idle minds are a devil’s workshop. Yours in this case is still held hostage by some man.

Marriage is not jail

What most women do not tell you is that they were the ones at fault when it came to choosing their partner. Wrong partner, wrong outcome; that is how it works. She did maid duties to get the ring, now that is why her husband has a place for her.  He thinks badly of her and treats her badly; yes, she knew.

You just find someone that likes you and suits what you want, and you choose them but marriage is not a bad thing.

You will get tired

Just wait, you will get tired. Why do you think for some older women when they get to a particular age they start running around with people not suited for them? No one tells you that you will get to a certain point and realize that you want that companionship. Marriage is not just about having kids, and paying bills together but when you get old, it will feel really nice to have someone there with you. Your kids will not live with your forever.
