It's hard though. I'm just waiting till I'm 18 so I can leave this house. He's not "controlling" controlling but he thinks he's some kind of prince still in Africa. I'm just tired of it. I tell my mom but I think she's scared of telling him. I just can't stand it.
Matter of time, you will be just fine. The whole 18 stuff, life is not as easy out there as it seems to be. I will tell you that. I was 15 when I moved out of my dad’s house, and believe me when I say, it ain’t easy like that. Trying to work, pay bills, and go to college. You should just try to ignore however way he acts that you don’t like, so you don’t have to be getting tired or frustrated all the time okay. Probably your mom don’t wanna instigate the whole thing, and she’s just trying to endure. Again, I’m sorry.
What should I do because I don't like him and I wish my mom would find a new man.
Trust me, the whole”I don’t like him” issue, I know exactly how you feel. There was a time of my life when I felt the same way about my dad, like I didn’t mind saying I hated him, but as time went on, I realized I had to get over whatever he had done that offended me that much and forgive him. You should think on the bright side of the situation, be the older one and try not to hold grudge against him. If your mom is still trying to work things out with him, then that’s her choice. But if the situation is really bad that he’s controlling her in bad ways, then she needs to get out before it’s too late. My parents have been separated for YEARS now, since I was a baby. I am proud to say that, I’m glad my mom is not with him. I pray things work out with you and your dad, take it easy dear.
I live with both my parents and I'm 15. My mom is a caring, loving, and means to the world to me. My dad on the other hand can be controlling, mean, and annoying. Both my parents are Africans. I like my mom better than my dad. My dad doesn't clean up or anything and it bothers me. Like when he eats,he expect someone to clean up after him. I really can't stand him. My mom fix our porch and he turned it into his own office. Like why?? He always make the house a mess by buying useless things.
I will start of by saying, I’m sorry for your present situation. About your dad being “controlling, mean, and annoying” and African too, I know a lot of African fathers that have the same characteristics. I’m not saying ALL African fathers are this way, but from personally experience, I grew up without a dad, and the little time I lived with him was one of the worse times of my LIFE. About him not cleaning up after himself, I think you should try to understand that he expects you or your mom to do that. Yes, I know it can get frustrating sometimes, but hey you have to understand.
I'm Liberian and I want learn this Nigerian Pidgin. My ma can speak krio and nigerian pidgin sounds the same way as krio or something idk.
Interesting. Well, Krio to me is not the same as Nigerian Pidgin in the sense of the way some words sound. Even though they both kind of have the same gist, in other words, they are both broken English with same root. But the way they both structure their words/sentences are different, even though they both have the same meaning. Learning Nigerian Pidgin should not be hard, if you already know Krio.
I was thinking about bleaching my skin oh but now since you're telling me this I have to believe it. It's really hard going to school with the american kids and how they keep telling me mean words. It bothers me sometimes. The problem is my friends think I have self confidence but I don't think I do.
Bleaching your skin is definitely not gonna make you feel better. It might look good now but in the aftermath, you are not gonna like it. You don’t want to be psychologically dependent on it, cause it can get to that point. Those kids are going to run out of words one day, and they are going to quit talking shit. It shouldn’t bother you, if it’s for you to dress up cute, get your hair nicely done, do it! if that’s going to make you feel cute. Surround yourself with friends that love you. You should get rid of that mindset of yours that thinks negatively about yourself.
I'm African and I get made fun of my skin color because I'm a dark skin girls. It bothers me sometimes and I feel like I'm ugly. What should do?
Listen dear, the fact that you are AFRICAN, you are BEAUTIFUL! I know it sounds a little ‘cliche’ to say “Oh don’t listen to what they got to say about your skin color” But trust me, it gets to a point when you have to stand for yourself, believe in yourself, speak positive words about yourself, and it’s up to you to NOT listen to the negative words those USELESS people got to say about you. I am a dark skin girl as well, and believe me when I say, “I LOVE MY SKIN” I am beautiful in my own ways, I don’t need nobody to tell me that I’m UGLY when I know that I’m not. I will leave you with this: YOU ARE NOT UGLY, DO NOT LET NOBODY BRING YOU DOWN WITH THEIR WICKED WORDS. YOU ARE BEAUTIFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE.
do you think nigerian people are better than all africans? because people keep saying nigeria is the best and they forgotten that we're all just african
I personally don’t think Nigerians are better than other Africans, but the fact is that, many Nigerians take pride in their country by representing it, and using slogans like “We the best”, “Nigerians > other Africans”, “After Africa, Nigeria follows”. So therefore, if other African countries feel the need that Nigerians are doing too much, they should also represent their countries. And Nigerians also know that we are all Africans, but at the end of the day, Nigeria is a COMPLETE different country compare to the other African countries, likewise the other countries to one another, in the sense of culture.
