Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication


As she was seeing her friend beside her, she forced herself to eat part of the prepared meal and those things set beside her. They continued to watch the music being aired, as they keep talking. Her friend was trying her best to take her mind off the incident that has happened, sharing with her other stories. Her friend started feeling sleepy and she asks that they should pray.

After their prayers, her friend slept off, but she couldn’t sleep, she keeps rolling on the mattress beside her friend, looking at her friend, saying to herself that she has put her in so much trouble, she couldn’t go to her apartment after her work that day, the meeting with her spouse was cancelled all because of her love for her, yet everything seems as if it is the beginning of the trouble she will pass through.

She starts thinking of her workplace, can she return to the place at all considering what has happened? She has not thought about this before, but now that her friend is sound asleep, her mind comes back to the issue and she was thinking that how will she able to look at the Young Man in the eye at the office. She thinks the best for her is trying to get another work, because she does not want to have anything to do with the Young Man again. While on this thought another thing crossed her mind, what of if the spouse of her friend succeeded in talking him to change his mind? If he could do that would she still return to the same office? If that could happen, she thinks there would be nothing wrong if she returns to the work place, but without that, she makes up her mind to find another work if she wants peace for herself in life.

While on this thought, her friend opened her eyes and discovered that she has not slept. She tried to sit up on the mattress and started talking to her again.

I Wrote A Song About Dealing With Depression & Anxiety

My friend do not injure yourself with so much thought about this incident. Let us pray God to give my spouse the wisdom to speak to him to change his mind about the decision he has in mind taken. There is nothing too hard for the Lord to do she says.

You have to give yourself rest, dearie, she says, don’t you know that if you do not take adequate rest now, you will soon develop some other problems for yourself and then you will become a burden to those of us who loved you and your family members.

Sadly, the Young Man would not think of you, let alone come to comfort you. Therefore, you have to encourage yourself and be strong.

Sleeplessness causes a lot of things among which are the High Blood Pressure and Depression. These sicknesses according to medical personnel could result in other terrible sicknesses, none of us who are your friends want this for us.

Therefore, you have to be strong for us, your friends and your family members who shall be hit greatly God forbid, by your infirmities if it happens.

She nodded whether in agreement to what her friend has said or that she has heard what she said, her friend cannot really tell what the nodding of the head meant.

She continued to talk into the night, persuading her to rest. She adds that even if she uses sleeping pills she will likely not sleep because of the position of her mind. The mind’s position speaks a volume in whether or not a person will fall asleep, she echoed to her.

She appreciated her friend and tell her that she tried her best to sleep but sleeping wasn’t coming, that’s why she sat by the edge of the mattress thinking again.

Her friend replied that she understands what she said, it really a big blow to her, nonetheless, she is gotten to try her best to take a nap.

Okay, I will try she replied, but…

What is the but again? her friend asks her

Pamela Oglesby that is it. Good friends are rare though, but when one finds one, one should try to keep that friend. Thanks for reading through and the comment.

This is an interesting story, Olusegun. It is good when someone has a friend supporting them and when that friend encourages them to trust God.
