I Need You


Sometimes we treat people like we don’t need them or will ever do, although we all have our differences and we need not to carry everyone along with us on our journey, however, it’s important to treat people we meet with love and respect. The golden rule and karma works always, let’s not forget that. Lauryn Hill’s words resonates so well with this, she said “I consider myself a crayon, I might not be your favourite colour but ONE DAY you’re going to NEED ME to complete your picture.” Yes!  Don’t be too quick to rule people out of your life. One day we may all need someone in a way we never imagined. The antidote is simply to be kind, loving and sowing good seeds daily and when the seasons of harvest come, you are sure to reap, even at unexpected places.

Let me share this story with you:

A poor boy from the village of KyenKyema in the Central Region of Ghana loved a rich girl from the Capital, Accra. They were both doing their graduate studies at the University of Ghana campus, so one day the boy proposed to her and the girl said, “Hey! Listen, your monthly salary is my daily hand expenses. How can I be involved with you? How could you have thought of that? I can never love you. So, forget about me and get engaged to someone else at your level”. But somehow the boy could not forget her so easily.
Sometime 5 years later, they stumbled into eachother at the Accra Mall. The lady said, “Hey! You! How are you? Now I’m married and do you know how much my husband’s salary is? GHc5,000 per month! Can you believe that? And he is also very smart.” The guy’s eyes got wet with tears on hearing those words. A few seconds later, her husband came but before the lady could say a word, her husband seeing the guy, said, “Sir you’re here? Meet my wife.” Then he said to his wife, “This is my boss, I’m also one of those working on his GHC400 million project. And do you know a fact my dear? My boss loved a lady but he couldn’t win her heart. That’s why he has remained unmarried. How lucky would that lady have been if she had married him. These days, who would love someone that much he said to his wife. The lady looked in total shock but couldn’t utter a word. Life is so short and it’s just like a mirror. You can only see as much as it reflects. So don’t be too arrogant and proud of yourself by looking down on people because situations change with time!
Don’t under estimate anyone, because everyone has potential!.
