"Eketi how are you holding up?"
"Eketi don't worry, God's in control. He'll see you through."
"Babe, stop worrying. I'm always here for you."
But when I came out of them and was on my way to progress, she did a sharp turnaround and became a voice of doubt and discouragement.
"Eketi, you write o, but your work is mediocre. People on Facebook are hailing you, but I don't think you should take this writing thing seriously."
(This is something I'd fought and prayed for, for three years).
If I bought something, she'd call it cheap. Then she'd "borrow" it and find a way to never return it, spoil it or lose it.
I did the only wise thing; I cut her off. No apologies, no warning.
Do you really want that?
Today, I can't imagine life without these wonderful women and men who make up my inner circle. To a large extent, I am because they are.
Cheers to amazing friends! May we find them, may we be them.
