There is a price for desperation
One thing I’ve learnt over time is that after every act of desperation, there is a price to be paid.
I sat pretty with my gaze fixated, I was bodily present but certainly absent minded and far away from my present atmosphere.
The seriousness on my face says a lot about the battle going on in my mind.
I really needed to solve an issue that seemed so overwhelming and needed an urgent fix. (based on my terms though)
Desperately found reasons to justify a course which ordinarily I wouldn’t even consider because of my beliefs.
” I’m just gonna do this once and I know it will be beneficial last last if my cards play accordingly”
I kinda have no option right now, if I’m to remain relevant and belong in the realm of the happy individuals.
Without consulting and seeking guidance, I came to a conclusion and vowed to stick to it.
Made certain I rejected every counsel from unsolicited means.
Few months into it all, it seems the scales fell off my eyes and I began to see clearly.
Now I’m left wandering why the hell did I not listen to all those who were reaching out with free guided counsel.
Now I fully understand the quote that said
” Don’t let desperate situations make you do desperate things”
When it seems you have no other option, listening to others can save you so much stress.
At a certain point when you become desperate for anything, be careful so you don’t make certain decisions that will alter and devalue all you have ever stood for.
This can push one to go into things they’d never even think of but since it’s the only option that seems available they take it.
They come back with regrets after they’ve paid the price for desperation.
What are you desperate for?
Is it love (finding the one person who makes earth feel like heaven)?
Is it marriage(this is especially for the ladies)?
Is it business explosion ( many guys comes in here)?
Is it a child ( couples without kids will understand better)?
Is it academic advancement (youths are on this table)?
Whatever it is your heart earnestly seek in desperation can be sorted out but you need a guided counsel.
This is to prevent acting in desperation and living many years in regret.
When desperation sets in, just say this to yourself.
“This too shall pass”
You will surely live to tell the tales without having so much regrets and an extra baggage.
Your salvation and redemption lies with the grace of your maker, the decisions you take and the people you take their counsel.
Never allow desperation mess you up because you will certainly wished you remained calm and focused.
There is always a price for desperation and Karma no matter how long it takes will certainly strike.
