- In his recent tweet, Solomon Buchi suggests that life has a way of leading us down paths we never wanted to go through and throws us into situations we never anticipated
- He encourages humility and understanding in the face of sad happenings
Solomon Buchi, a Nigerian writer and controversial relationship expert, shares an insightful thought about the unpredictability of life.
Buchi’s tweet underscores the widespread tendency for people to declare, “I can never take this in life” or “I’ll never take this in marriage,” only to find themselves in the very conditions they previously strongly rejected.
He believes that life has a tendency of guiding us down roads we never wanted to take and putting us in situations we never expected.
It’s crucial to note that Buchi opposes the idea that people should consciously seek out or wish for unpleasant events. Instead, in the face of tragic events, he promotes humility and compassion.
Buchi also explores the concept of gray regions in life. He makes the point that life is not always as black and white as we are used to it being. He observes that life is frequently far from simple and often compels people to face challenges they never anticipated.
He wrote on X:
“I’ll tell you this: anyone who’s always saying “I’ll never take this in life.” “1’ll never take this in marriage”, “it can’t be me.” People like this, in most cases, end up in such situations. My dear, you’ll take it, and it will be you. Life will squeeze out humility from you. I’m not asking anyone to wish themselves evil. However, when you see evil happen, humbly understand that it could be you, but it wasn’t you. Humbly pray that you don’t find yourself in such mess. Humbly understand that you’re not better than who it happened to.
When the rigid man eventually falls into their unimaginable realities, they break. It breaks them, because it’s more than them, it’s their ego. “How could it be me?” “But I’m better than that person it happened to?” This is ego, and though difficult to tame, it’s profitable to.“
Buchi stated that life is full of surprises and challenges that exceed our expectations, but ultimately, we find a way to overcome them. In a way, it urges us to be resilient and to have faith in our ability to cope with life’s unexpected twists and turns.
