@JosephEParker on letting go of the past

Moving houses recently, I discovered a sobering fact that many of us have an instinct to hoard things that we no longer want or need. Why then, is the critical question, are we so reluctant to declutter? We weigh ourselves down with stuff – including people – that we then spend time and effort trying to get rid of. Psychologists have a term, ‘loss aversion’, which explains a lot. We place a higher value on things we already have and might lose than we do on things we don’t have but might get. Even if, in practice, they’re both equally easy to get rid of.

A trivial but good example is a souvenir. My mother has a room filled with brushes, plastics, utensils, frames, flasks, appliances that she never uses. She may be having a clear-out day, and she thinks, Shall I get rid of this? Then she thinks No. I might need it, I’ll keep it. If she was at a car-boot sale, and the same kitchen knife was for sale for N100, she wouldn’t buy it. She wouldn’t value it enough to spend N100 on it, but because she already has it, she is reluctant to give it away.

How u no go sabi kiss ?

I have heard babes talk about how some guys don’t know how to kiss. And these guys they were talking about aint your regular small boys oh! I’m talking of big boys with cool rides, choice apartment and loads of cash. I have heard a girl say, “He was kissing me like he wanted to chew my lips!”. Aint nothing as bad as that, dude, I can assure you.

I don’t think anyone can over-emphasize the importance of this. It’s so sad that some guys don’t know to kiss. This can make or mar a date, a relationship, a marriage (e no even fit reach marriage, lailai).

Most times, after charming a babe and all that, the next thing is usually to kiss the babe. You need to prepare yourself. I no wan know how much the babe likes you, forget that thing, if your mouth stinks, she will never kiss you again. Women are that picky. Even some guys sef no go talk to you if your mouth dey smell like soak-away wey dey leak, I’m telling you.
