MAKING IT BETTER: The Mystery Of This Thing Called DEATH!

It’s a debt we all have to pay,  I accept that but it feels as if death is collecting on this debt from people who haven’t spent enough time on earth yet to be called on to make the ultimate payment. Death seems to be collecting indiscriminately and with alarming rate. Slow it down grim […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Nothing But Love For The Youth

This week is Mental Health Awareness week in the UK and my thoughts are with our youth who are struggling on so many levels to make their way in an increasingly hostile environment; many having no moral compass and there are casualties that appear in different guises. Having spent the majority of the last few […]

MAKING IT BETTER: New Year 2018, Make A Good Start!

Happy New Year readers!! I hope you managed to have a good if not great festive season. I know it was very stressful for many people for various reasons. I can only hope and pray that those stresses are completely removed or at the very least alleviated in the New Year.  We all know of […]

MAKING IT BETTER: My Own Personal Rant (2)… Think About How Your Behaviour Hurts Others

I have had so many wonderful and equally shocking experiences during my short stay in Nigeria to date. I am happy to say that the good far outweigh the bad simply because one good experience which generally involves some interaction with a fellow Nigerian leaves me with enough joy to internalise to cancel out several […]

MAKING IT BETTER: What Type Of Identity Are You? Where Do You Fit In?

Do you recognise any of the following statements? “I don’t feel myself”; “I feel out of sorts”, “I don’t feel right”. ‘This is not me’. I don’t recognise myself’. Have you ever made any one of them at some point in time? These are just a few statements we make from time to describe an […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Home Sweet Home!

It was really heart warming to see the responses from readers to the recent article titled ‘Red Tomatoes’ in Loud Whispers. Mental health was celebrated worldwide recently and it felt like we have reached a milestone just by the number of articles and TV programmes that addressed the issue in Nigeria. As it is my […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Nigerian Women and Cosmetic Surgery….Really?

I ran into a good friend a few weeks ago and it was the strangest, almost out of body experience. You know when you know something is not looking right on someone and they try to act in total denial, so you are forced to be in denial with that person? Well, I can do […]
