Comedienne and actress, Adeyela Adebola popularly known as Omo Ibadan is raising an important conversation on what you should do when your friend expects you to hate her enemy who has not offended you.
Often times, we find ourselves in this situation and to prove our loyalty to our friend, we decide to take on their enemy as ours. Unfortunately for us, when our friend reconcile with their enemy, we are left to figure things out on our own.
Are you in this situation already? Omo Ibadan’s advice on this is the truth that will set you free.
I have had friends who told me they will never have anything to do with a particular person. They told me how much the person offended them and how much they hate the person and me as a friend is expected to take that person as my enemy too in order to prove my loyalty. But surprisingly, I see these friends after few months forming close pal, forming KoriKosun with the same person they claim has wronged them before, forming “I love you ” with the person they claimed they’d never have anything to do with… While me, I’m somewhere hating on who has never offended me…
Moral of the story:
DONT EVER IN A BID TO PROVE LOYALTY TO SOMEONE HATE ON ANOTHER PERSON WHO HAS NEVER OFFENDED YOU , DONT YOU EVER TAKE SOMEONE ELSE’S ENEMY AS YOUR ENEMY, YOUR FRIEND’S ENEMY IS NOT YOUR ENEMY.
DEAR FRIEND, IF TAKING YOUR ENEMY AS MY ENEMY IS “LOYALTY” TO YOU.. FORGET IT I CAN’T BE LOYAL TO YOU.
DEAR FRIEND, BECAUSE I’M FIGHTING SOMEONE DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD FIGHT THEM TOO, WHAT IF MY ENEMY IS MEANT TO BE YOUR HELPER?
