I was confused as to what title to give my post for today but just decided to use this.

For the past three days, I haven't written an article for the past four days, this is as a result of so many things that surrounds me, I just didn't feel like writing my own article. I only read, upvote and comment on people's article.

I'm confused
  • My National Youth Service Corps took a new turn

    I often hear that;

    "when you go through difficult experiences it could be the makings of the strongest and most resilient relationships one could ever have"

    Disappointment sometimes can be a very tricky emotion to deal with because every day might decide to bring about a new situation which one would be disappointed over.

    Okay so, I've been planning for my service for a while now.

    I graduated from the University since 2019 and was supposed to go for the one year mandatory service by 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic altered my going.

    It was postponed till this year 2021.

    Around March we were called for service but I couldn't register because I applied for Nysc internship at Flutterwave, one of the leading Fintech companies.

    Almost all my friends went with the batch, but since I knew there would be an opportunity for me to serve in Flutterwave, I wasn't bothered.

  • I was Disappointed

    Flutterwave disappointed me, they refused to get back to me after the interview. I sent mails which they didn't reply, until recently when I got a message from then that they were done hiring, I was so angry.

    If I had known I'd be Disappointed, I would have gone for the previous batch with my colleagues.

    Well I decided not to mind the disappointment. I went ahead to register, and worked on being posted to Lagos, a state in Nigeria known for its wide range of job opportunities.

    I felt this will be a compensation for the Flutterwave job I missed.

    Well, just as I said above my expectations were once again taunted. I was posted to the south. I do not know anyone here and I do not even see my self serving there. So painful πŸ’”πŸ˜’πŸ˜«

    I was asked to resume on 30th of this month(July)

    Still Skeptical about going though.

  • Sometimes disappointments might come very rapidly

    Sometimes disappointments might be very huge and could be life changing.

    "When you get bad news, take a moment to let it sink in," saysΒ Tina Gilbertson, LPC, DCC, psychotherapist and author ofΒ Constructive Wallowing: How to Beat Bad Feelings by Letting Yourself Have Them

    Many people will successfully work through their disappointments and get over it as fast as it came.

    In any way possible, they have the strength to take note of what happened to them, try as much as possible to learn from the incident, and then move on.

    They come out of such disappointments waxing stronger.

    We should learn more about how to manage our disappointments effectively

    I decided that life is good. It is a very daring adventure and should be taken one day at a time.

    Relax, do not trouble yourself worrying and wallowing in self pity after being disappointed.

    Move on, there's still a way out.

    As regards my NYSC posting, I'm still pushing my buttons, hoping there's something I can do about the state I'm posted to. But if it still doesn't work, then all road leads to the south. I'll gist you.

I'm still hopeful πŸ˜Œβ˜ΊπŸ™

  • I don't understand the ip-address issue well enough.

    Please I don't know if anyone knows about this ip-address issue, we want to tell more people about BCH and most importantly readcash and noisecash, if the site recognizes ip-address, does that mean I can't invite anyone from within my area to join the community?

    I'm confused.

It's okay to be disappointed queen. But think the positive side why it happen. Maybe there will be better that will come.

I still remember the first and the deepest disappointment I felt when I was a teengager when I was being promised to be sent to school by an organization which my parents was a member. It's a religious organizations, and then they disappoint. Me and my parents, the reason why my parents stops from attending their sessions. And my parents find ways for me to go to college. And here I am, standing proud and telling them that without other people's help, my parents push me to my dream. ☺️

Bless you queen. πŸ€—

True queen. That change our ways of thinking before that no matter how you work hard for other people to accept you that made them promise to do their ways too, still they're human and forgets that they promised. That's why, after that , my parents and I pray and trust God without other people pushing us coz we already knew that they're not really willing to help. ☺️

Disappointments are sometimes hard to handle, but we must look forward. Sometimes opportunities that seem unattractive, end up giving us good surprises. Keep fighting for what you want, but don't close yourself to see with optimism the roads that are offered to you.

Relax, do not trouble yourself worrying and wallowing in self pity after being disappointed. - For me this is the most beautiful part of the article. It is well said. I love how you turn those negativities to positives and continue with life. How I wish I have the same mindset as yours. To always look at the brighter side of the way.

Yes they did, in the last batch.

That's the more reason I'm a bit scared. One year out of where I'm used to.

Life throws us curveballs, I don't see problems just solutions.

You are going to the South! Have you been there before? No. Do you know anyone? No.

It is your opportunity to see more of your country, meet your fellow countrymen and women, see if they have different customs.

Embrace it, yes I would be disappointed at that Flutterwave nonsense. Good luck with whatever you decide to do, but for me I relish a challenge:)
