When you think of someone “falling in love,” you immediately picture a person in some kind of free fall with no control of the situation whatsoever. But that isn’t what mature people do. No. Mature people are always going to want to have some sense of control over the situation that they are in. And that’s why mature people never really “fall in love” in the traditional sense of the term. They step into it. They walk up to it and take ownership of it. And that’s what love is supposed to be.

You can always control who you choose to manifest the love that is within your hear

Someone would get mad but just hold on a little. If you check the scriptures, the first time the bible talked about marriage, there was no dating involved. That was Genesis Chapter 2.

Woman rewards her parents for ignoring friends who advised them against investing in her education

A woman has narrated how she rewarded her parents for investing in her education, despite advice from people telling them that a girl child education was a waste and will only benefit her in-laws. @NqobaKonkhe said her father was a security guard in a company before being promoted to a supervisor. His new position allowed him to put one of his children in the company's private school.
