(By the way I am working on a post which will contain English, French and Naija pidgin all in one-So I'm practicing with the opening lines of this post...lol. Maybe we should all try this. What do you think?). Na my mid-semester exam dey worry me anyhow like say tomorrow no dey. Trust you are all doing great by the grace of Dieu, oui?
I extracted this story from Chioma Toplis (Nollywood actress) page on FB and as always, I'm sharing it on this platform (with a few additions of mine) with the hope that you will share your thoughts and help folks out there deal with really deep life's issues.
"My name is Sarah, I am a 29 year old girl from Orlu in Imo state. I have been dating a guy for 3 years now. He lost his job before we met and started dating and for this matter, he has been living off me all this while.
Our love was so strong that we were the talk and envy of many who never knew I was the one spending all the money. l have a fixed job while he doesn't, and sometime last year, we both agreed to purchase a car through a mortgage which the company I work with paid for on the arrangement that they will be deducting a certain amount of money from my salary monthly.
He suggested that we use his name as the official owner of the car which I didn't object to because we were working towards our marriage and since we were going to be married, what was there to have reservations about? Or so I thought.
Three months ago, he proposed for us to conclude wedding arrangements, but I had to decline because I wanted him to get a job first. Also, there was a secret I had been keeping from him for all these years, so I had to confess to him that I had a baby girl when I was in secondary school and that my child has been living with my mother in my hometown.
Before I could finish sharing this information with him, he got up and shouted at me saying "why didn't tell him all this while?" He walked out on me angrily and has been behaving funny ever since; he won't pick my calls and he has stopped coming to church and anywhere he is certain to meet me. It is so bad now, to the extent that when I go to his house, he refuses to answer the door when I knock, acting like he is not at home, even though I know perfectly well that he is in.
At this point, I read the hand writing on the wall, that he has walked out of the relationship. It's been three months since we broke up and it feels like I have lost a major project that I invested every other thing which I have laboured for. I have been paying for a car that I no longer enjoy.
Please what do I do? Do I take my car back? I am so confused. Please help!
After reading this, all sort of ideas came running through my little worried head. But I want to know what you think first, I will be back to tell you guys a story.
