If You Find Yourself Guilty of This, You Need Prayers [Strange But True]

Dr. Ubani works in one of Houston's biggest cardiology centres.

His wife heads over 200 people in an IT firm in Texas too. Living above average they have one dream for which they save religiously.

The dream to someday go back home to Umuahia in Abia state and set up their own businesses.

Meanwhile, Martins and his wife who both run successful businesses in Umuahia have not missed their "prayer point" in the last 4 years.

"Lord this dream must come thru, we must relocate to America. Lord, I decree..."

Uche watches through the window of his high rise Zenith bank office everyday - admiring independent business men and hating the cage his office feels like.

He wishes to be an unemployable entrepreneur someday.

Meanwhile...Mike walks pass that same Zenith bank building everyday. With his CV in his hand and sweat on his forehead, he asks God: "when?"

When would I say "I work with Zenith Bank. That is my office up there."

Mrs. Aiesha Bello, wife of a multi billionaire wishes she could turn back time and re-pick her husband. I can't believe how hellish it is and wishes for singleness.

Meanwhile, Funke who works for her would give anything to be Mr. Bello's wife - 4th wife is okay sef. "See fine man with cash. Kai some women are lucky," she says.

The stupidity that is inherent in envy and comparisons of lives is the kind that needs exorcism to expel.

Given the shoes of the man with the life you want may be all that you need to cure you of your inordinate longing.

The saying: the grass is always greener on the other side" means you see only the glamour and not the pain.

That's what I call looking with your eyes wide shut...
