Nobody Has It Easy

Sitting on a sofa in my living room and listening to John Legend’s song Everybody Knows, a line in the song hit me. He sang “…nobody has it easy, I still can’t believe, you found somebody new but I wish you the best, I guess…”

In deed, nobody has it easy. The day I watched a documentary on Michael Jackson and how he was declined a role in a movie, I couldn’t believe it. This is somebody the whole world knows, infact the only thing more popular than the man nicknamed Wacko Jacko is Coca-Cola yet he was rejected by a director who wasn’t even as popular as Steven Seagal; this left him distraught and depressed.

Celebrities do suffer heart breaks, loneliness, lack of privacy etc yet we model our lives after theirs believing they have it all easy. Well, they don’t!

A chat with a colleague yesterday left me non-plussed and infuriated; the dude dismissed the importance of family, citing he doesn’t care about children/heir and he would “kill” to be as affluent as Aliko Dangote or Mike Adenuga.

The truth is that we always believe what we don’t have is better than what we have. American rapper Marshall Mathers aka EMINEM said in his song BEAUTIFUL, “…walk a thousand miles in my shoes just to see what its like to me, I’ll be you – lets trade shoes, just to see what it’d be like. To feel your pain, you feel mine. Go inside each other’s minds, just to see what we’d find, look at shit through each other’s eyes…”

It would be nice if people didn’t look over the fence and think someone else has it easier than him or her…you never know what just goes on in other people’s lives. Just enjoy your life to the best of your ability.

Nobody has it easy, everybody has a problem. Everybody is fighting his or her own war. You don’t know what they are going through. Nobody is perfect, nobody deserves to be.

Happy new week, wish you all a productive week.

  1. Its like the Igbo adage;Since all the Lizards have their belly on the floor,its difficult to discern which has stomach ache! But some people do have it easy by way of their gender-our girls for instance,or position in the Society-you wouldn’t expect Dangote to queue up for something on the Streets! Nice work Bro!

  3. I think the pretty, endowed or just endowed girls have it easy. You have over 10 rich men wooing you (married & single) & you can afford to make demands whenever and from whoever… What do they give in return? Sex! And bear in mind that the don’t ‘pay’ back in all cases. A man might spend all that and when he thinks he’s about to strike oil, she scrams, stops picking his calls, etc.

    1. My broda, you know tis written in the Bible, “Beautiful woman obtaineth wealth” and yes, they have so many men at their beck and call but they do get confused when it comes to choosing a partner and may end up choosing the wrong partner.
