ギデイウン - Gideon

Every now and then we come across people who stay the night
People who believe in you far more than you thought was possible
About 5 years ago I stopped going to the Catholic church and it was mostly because I got tired of routines and procedures just to get across to a God who lived on the inside of me, eventually I walked into a redeemed church down the crescent for a couple of reasons; I didn't want people at home disturbing me about church, I wanted to go in at anytime and leave at anytime and a couple more reasons but definitely not a genuine interest in their church. Walking into that church was one of the most life changing things that ever happened to me, not because of the service or the music, I knew most people pretend when they get to church. It was because of two weirdos that kept disturbing me to join their teenagers' church; one ridiculously hot babe who I wasn't too bothered by and this weird bearded guy who sounded like the costumer service.
Honestly, I questioned their sanity and kept wondering why they refused to give up on getting me to come early. 
I always believed no one I met was by chance, a part of it wasn't true but most of the bonds that lasted longest started weirdest; Oiza, Uzo, Gideon, Chisom, Laura, Laurel, Lauren and more but having people who constantly believe is quite different from having a crowd of people who laugh and smile and talk the most about what you can and can't be.

Truth be told there's more to say about those who aren't there and that's why half the time we aren't paying attention to the friends who are paying attention but looking for the people who aren't.

But I’ve learnt from experience that the stronger bonds are the ones from having to face problems and find solutions together even if it was just to run from a house master that sounded like a demon chasing two boys across a courtyard as early as 6 in the morning.
Naturally, we messed up that day and hadn’t had our baths by the time the rest of the boarding school headed to the chapel and for some reason we had slept off during housework and woke up to near sunrise.
The chase began as I was casually walking towards my dormitory just to see Victor sprinting towards me and the chase was on; Simon was the predator, we were the prey and somehow Victor found his way into the reservoir on the left side of the laundry and I found mine... Over the laundry wall and straight to class to hide for a day and more, you could guess that we’re still friends till today.
Adventure and adversity are the ingredients to a long lasting friendship but that all changes when a sense of value starts to be the guiding system of both individuals and slowly it becomes less of a bond and more of a casual form

Friendships are particularly hard for me to talk about, which is why this has taken me more than two hours to think of and write but there are those Friendships I have, the ones with the stories that would be much more appealing to tell when success begins to manifest, the hard to believe stories and the unbelievable tales of warriors who believe in you, who see the better version of you, who see your potential and hold on even through the darkness.

Pay attention to those who believe in you.

Love
Adeolu Michael.
