When we come into this world as kids, From a very young age we usually have guidance and help from parents, siblings, friends, family members or even the community. These kind of help includes:- directing us when we come across new challenges, teaching us the basic human lessons like how to eat, greet, or behave, helping us when we need help and correcting us if need be.

Notice how all the above things changes once we grow other and live on our own. It is almost as if adults don’t like other adults. Let me give you a simple illustration.

You walk into an A.T.M gallery to make a withdrawal and the person that got there before you is just standing in front of you looking like he has lost hope in life.

And then you asked “is it dispensing”

He or she goes “I don’t know try it”

Only for you to put in your card and then the machine takes your card because it is faulty. You turn to him and give him a look that says “why didn’t you warn me about the faulty machine, I assume it took your card earlier”.

But he or she doesn’t care, he is only relived that he is not the only one going through the dilemma of loosing his card.

What am I saying in essence. People find it hard to help each other these days. Even when they know so well that helping another person will cost them nothing. They would decide not to…

The reason I started writing this was after reading @Ellawrites ‘s article titled you are doing well. Where she basically explained that it is not okay to put yourself down just because people around you don’t see value in what you are doing or what you have to offer.

And she is right,90% of the time we don’t support each other because we don’t want a situation where by another person is doing better than we are. And instead of working on bettering our life we try to put them down or ignore them. It is not the right way.

And if you are reading this and you feel like you have been putting in work for 100% of your time and trying to create something for yourself but yet people around you aren’t helping. Don’t feel bad and don’t worry just keep doing all you can I promise you. It would all come together some day.

And so I say to everyone reading this do what you love so that even when you aren’t getting praises for putting in the work you wouldn’t be frustrated and discouraged to stop. And when the praises does come as they will, you would sit back and enjoy from the labour of all the time that you didn’t get praises or help.


Thank you for reading.

Whatever we do in life, we should not do it to gain the praise or support of others. we have to do it for ourselves. People are evil and hypocritical. you think someone is supporting you but that person wants your bad

Yeah it is usually like this most times people support one another for their selfish interest. It’s either this or it’s fake love nobody really shows true love and pure intensions anymore

This is true, most times we don't value what we are doing because other people don't praise us. I do ask friends around, what's really the benefit of being praised?

Of course nothing, just for you to know, they have noticed you, so why will I waste my time, seeking people's praise..😁

Yeah that’s true. The only thing that their praises might do is encourage us to do more but other than that nothing much but it would just be nice if they supported us.

There's something called crab mentality and it occurs more frequently among adults, you will hardly see it happening with children. What that crab mentality simply means is that a person will prefer to drag others down with him/her when they face failure, it's a very selfish behavior and that ATM example you gave is the perfect explanation for it

Exactly Levi!!.. honestly I've been asking myself this question recently...like why? 🥺 What does it take a person to help another?. It'll cost them nothing but most of them just don't want to help, some of them feel like the other person would do better than them if they lend an helping hand, it's just so pathetic but it's sadly the world we live in

Sometimes I am left to wonder if being an adult is being so immature and self-centered.... It won't remove a dime to say it ate my card please don't put it ....as simple as that!

Even children have the purest of heart and brightest of intentions...why can't adult be like that even much more .... Hmmm I hope I don't come in contact with those set of people believe me they would get it hot!

Ikr children are so different with pure heart and open mind they don’t involve in all these pettiness and bad characters because their minds is young and they don’t understand all the wickedness in the world

Very much, I have felt that I have walked in circles many times and that usually makes me a little sad and makes me feel alone and without support, but I think it is part of growing up and forming what you want

That ATM own got me 😂 the truth is that some people have this relief when they know they are not in the mess alone, its just like when Nepa take light, a normal Nigeria will first check if the neighbors have light, if the neighbors don't have, that will be a relief for them cause it affected the whole area and not just them.

This is a weird form of greed honestly, never wanting others to succeed just cause one isn't succeeding at that point themselves, sometimes just cause people don't give us praises and all that it seems like we aren't accomplishing anything where as it isn't so, they are probably just jealous of how well one is doing or they are struggling to survive in their own life that they don't even notice us at all.

At times, you may feel like you're not doing well because people are not hailing you or because they don't appreciate what you do. You should just find new ways of doing what you do so as to be better. Keep doing it because a time will come that people will appreciate what you do
