Today, I made a "mess" of the friedrice I prepared. The rice looked great, but IMO, I added too much salt. I felt so bad and ashamed of myself tbh.
Immediately I was done cooking, I ran upstairs and forced myself to sleep, so that I wouldn't hear my folks complains/ yabs. Lol
This evening, one of our neighbours came visiting and I overheard my dad telling my sister to offer him some rice.
Really? I was so mad. 😥
I still refused to come downstairs, bcos SHAME!!
When the man left, I went to look at the plates, to my surprise, not one grain was left.
Few mins later, my mother calls me and tells me to call another neighbour of ours for dinner. I was too angry and confused to say anything.
Mind you, these neighbours are young men o. So, you can understand my pain.
I just couldn't understand what my folks were playing at today.
I just couldn't take it anymore. I called my youngest sister (she's just as blunt as I am) and asked her "Divine, what do you think of the friedrice? Isn't it too salty? She replies... "Noooo, I like it just like that".
I couldn't believe my ears, but I felt joy all over.
I went back to the pot to taste the remaining friedrice and TBH, it still tasted too salty in my mouth.
Anyway, I still think I messed up the friedrice, but as it appears, my folks and neighbours enjoyed the mess.
I still feel bad, but not "bad bad" if you get what I mean.
Many of us have make mistakes and done stuff we aren't proud of. There's always this feeling of guilt and shame that makes us want to lock ourselves in and hide.
The sneaky devil takes this opportunity to tell us lies that "we are not good enough and nobody would ever want us".
No matter how messed up you think you are, there's somebody out there that would want and appreciate you.
Oh well...You messed up yea? Accept It! Own it! Take it with your chest! However, don't remain in regrets. Shake it all off and be determined to do better next time.
So, yea yea, Mr Sunmonu might reject you because you're too salty. Don't worry ehn, there's one Mr Kamoru whose taste buds think you are perfect. Trust me, he exists.
Always remember,
Jesus loves you and He wants you.
I love you too.
