So recently I chopped breakfast – yes o, a whole me, a whole wife material, 200 yards. My hard-girl, hard-girl melted immediately after I met this guy. But as God would have it, he wasn’t the man of my dreams. I found myself waiting for his texts; minutes turned to hours, hours turned to days, and sometimes it could get as long as a week for this gentleman to reply to my text or even call. And the waiting period was like torture to my body and soul – customers of this particular type of breakfast will understand me on another level.
Ahhh my brothers and sisters in the Lord, like many other coming-of-age stories, I had to come to my senses and fight for my mental health. That is why I have come in peace to help in these trying times. Below are tips to do while waiting for ‘him’ to text you.
So the first thing you can do while waiting for his text is to go and narrate your ordeal to a friend you trust. People are looking for gist to entertain them, who knows they might feature your story on the next Netflix series. Your case cannot already be as bad as Devi of Never Have I Ever and if it is worse, we might have to invite Judge Funmi Asaolu of The Justice Court. Anyways, a win is a win.
Another thing you can do while waiting on his text is spend your money. If men have refused to baby you, you sef baby yourself. Spend that last 5k in your account to get yourself a decent gown for 3k (if you don’t have plug, I have plug), and use the rest to buy spaghetti and turkey. You are now left with 500 naira, get yourself a small 5-alive pulpy. The rest, save it as an offering when you get to church. Life is not that hard, let’s not toughen it.
A must to do is to attend prayer meetings because why are you always stuck on talking stages? Your mates are having real-life relationship experiences, you are just talking and talking. Even customer service no talk reach this one, nawa o. It’s not like you can use the excuse of having expensive taste in men, your taste buds are burnt like the way you fry your plantain. Anyways, what cannot be achieved physically would be achieved spiritually. Amen??
Another tip is to write a book. You know he kuku won’t reply in a year’s time. Why not channel this energy into achieving something worthwhile? If you lack inspiration, you can write about your tragedies of failed relationships. Who knows, you might be the next New York bestselling author. May the best tragedy win.
Finally, invest in other kinds of relationships. A romantic relationship is not the only relationship one can be blessed with. You can use the time to call cousins, aunties, and uncles who you haven’t heard from in a while, who knows, you can warm their hearts with just that little show of love and in return, they can bless you with small pocket money – you are smiling now abi? When you collect small from here and there, your account would be robust, you might even forget that small boy because you have become Odogwu overnight.
Anyways, on a more serious note, I really hope that anyone facing rejection and loneliness is surrounded by the right people and grows past it.
