Doctor Freaks Journal - Living A Lie

"There is a price to pay for speaking the truth. There is a bigger price for living a lie." - Cornel West

Let me start this piece by reproducing the contents of a conversation I had with a very good friend of mine recently. He expressed concerns about some of my writings. He wasn't comfortable with the idea of me writing about my past -the good, the bad and the ugly. He is of the view that I should rather do more of fiction than a "pseudo-autobiography" and I simply differed for some reasons which I took my time to demonstrate to him.

Back to the meat of this piece,

I had the rare privilege of sharing lunch with an old friend ( he paid), a very senior one at that, whose escapades are well known to me and many of our mutual friends, just the way mine are equally known to many reading this, but guess what, in my own case, old things have passed away and all things have become new. 

I am a new creature in Christ Jesus.

"Egbon" and I, for the very first time in 14 years, (because he is also a legal practitioner, who happens to be plying his trade in the Centre of Excellence as well) elected to discuss his past, my past, and our past! 

Egbon is now a Pastor and the Head of Legal team in one of the big Pentecostal churches in town. Guess what, he never shared details of his "dirty" past with his "life partner"! 

My wife even knows all my nicknames and still calls me one of the several whenever she wants to get naughty. 

At a point, Egbon decided to recuse himself from every form of participation on the social media, because a friend once posted a comment, suggestive of involvement in some activities. At that point, I could no longer hold myself. I sat him down and gave him a bit of my mind. I inquired if he had ever studied the story of Saul who later became Apostle Paul and expectedly, he had. 

I asked him if his case was worse. His response was encouraging. He was not as bad, but today, the story of the Holy Bible is not complete without that of Paul. He finally agreed to sit his wife of 12 (twelve) years down and open up to her and he further promised to live his life to the fullest henceforth.

Are you living a lie today? Shake it off! Live your life and be yourself always.

  1. Hope it goes well with your friend after telling his wife his past after 12 years of marriage.

    1. Women don't care about their man's past. It's men that care

  2. Hmmmm. I hope this ends well. 12 years no be beans o.

  3. I can't even keep any secrets with my partner, my conscience won't allow me to rest, we'll just be discussing one day and I won't know how or when I'll spill it

    I'll tell my secrets early enough in the relationship and damn the consequences

  4. Way to go. Free yourself and make peace at any cost

  5. If he has been a great husband to her i don't think telling her about his past will change her/their marriage. My opinion

  6. I marriage,some truth are better kept where it was... (Past)
