July 31, 2011 Obara Meji 85Comment

Growing up in Jamaica was fun as I am most fond of telling you all. It is obvious by all who read this blog site that I am proud to be Jamaican. I have spent ,most of my life in America, and even though I love Jamaica, I am also very proud to be a naturalized American.  America has done a lot for me, and has been my home since I was a very young girl, and  for that I am Loyal. What is Loyalty?, and how do we deal with dis-loyalty, how do we deal with betrayal?, from friends, family, a lover, your spouse or others. Loyalty is- the state or quality of being loyal; faithfulness to commitments or obligations.———-It is of good character to be Loyal. The seat of the betrayer is never good. The Christians condemn the lowly Judas for his betrayal of the Man Of Sorrows, the trust worthy Peter who was to be the faithful follower denounced the christ when threatened him with the same faith……Then the cock-crow!!!….. and the story goes…………….

The second betrayal is the disciple’s betrayal of Jesus.  Betrayal has a cyclical effect.  Earlier in the evening Jesus had told the disciples Satan had been given permission to test them.  Jesus was praying that their faith would not cave in.  Peter said his faith would never cave in, that he was willing to go to jail or even to die for Jesus.  Jesus told Peter that he would deny Jesus before the rooster’s crow at dawn.  But then he added, “Peter, after you get back on your feet, be sure to strengthen your brothers.”  

As Jesus is taken captive, Peter follows from afar.  A fire is kindled in the middle of the court-yard where Jesus is being questioned and people sit down around the fire to keep warm, Peter among them.  A teen age girl sees Peter in the light of the fire, stares at Peter, and thinks she has seen him with Jesus, points to Peter on the fire’s light, “I think that man was with Jesus.”Peter shakes his head, he says, “Miss, I do not know him.” Not long after another person looks at Peter in the firelight, ‘You sure you are not one of them?’  Peter says, very uncomfortable now, ‘No, not me mister. ’  Nothing happens for a time, Peter begins to relax, an hour or so later a third person accuses Peter of being with Jesus, ‘You must have been with him because you sound like a Galilean [Yankee] . Mark has Peter curses and swears an oath, like, “I swear on my mother’s grave that I don’t know this man you are talking about.’  Or worst?….. Just then, Peter hears the rooster crow and he remembers Jesus words, that before the rooster crows, before the light of dawn, Peter would deny he knew Jesus.  “Peter went out and wept bitterly.’ Luke 22:31-34, 54-62 –shalomcommunitychurch.mi.us.mennonite

You all saw what I wrote about Sophia Spencer one of my postings , the dis- loyalty she showed, and that taught me a great lesson  from an early age, but I still refused to believe that people could be so deceptive and spiteful and so I continued to look for the best in human being, the baby father came along like the spider in little Miss Muffett, and I wished he had frightened me away, but destiny is destiny, and again there I was pregnant, young visiting a prisoner and caring for him, giving him his first child, then he came out and did me so bad!!…the ultimate betrayal. The friend who takes away your husband, and so forth. It hurts to see someone who you call a friend show their disloyalty.  I have been betrayed by many people and I have recounted my stories on Embracing Spirituality time and time again. We must listen to our own mind, trust our instincts more often. Pray against these things, but it has been the Modus Opreandi, of many a people from birth, an inate quality in some astrological signs, I will not mention them here. Tell me what happened to you. Come mek we reason!!.

Come share your story with me of, Loyalty, Disloyalty and betrayal…let us discuss it…

If it doesn’t add up to you then there is no reason why you shouldn’t question it. Maniac, it would take a lot to surprise me now a days. Nothing does anymore. Two things would surprise me. One just happens to be me winning the lottery. 🙂

Your referring to killing your enemies with kindenss. Everyone has their own ways of dealing with things and/or situations in life maniac. There really isn’t a wrong way or right way to deal with them. Its just a matter of what path your comfortable taking. Some believe in eye for an eye, turn the other cheek, etc. Its about what you feel is right for you. That’s all.

Of course. I’m not gonna lie I do have bad in me. Who doesn’t but I can admit no matter how upset I get or angry. No matter how much I feel I’m getting hurt I still end up doing good. Can’t help it. I know a lot of people who have done me wrong in my life. And yet when they see me they smile like I’m there best friend.

I can so relate to Gogetter’s comment . First time commenting here my friend told me about this post and i can testify to alot of these things being said.

Mi did have this socalled friend name SHAUNA BINNS. Mi and her uses to live when we shared apartment most of the money being spent was mine. Mi guh new york mi buy clothes fi her mi and mi mother guh grocery shopping mi pick out fi her food separate cawz she was a vegetarian. Mi mother guh d states buy clothes and underwear fi d gal too.I hasd my own car mi give her fi drive all when mi n her not going d same place.. It so happen fi various reasons mi mother never like her. Anyway mi move from outta d 2 bedroom apt and get a one room d gal live inna d one bedroom apt wid mi nah pay bills nutten.. when mi say nutten i mean NADA. a mi mother pay mi rent and bills my money that i worked was to do watever i wanted. Anyway as i stated above mi mother never like her suh mi mother say she nah pay nuh rent fi she live deh fi free. Knowing the circumstances mi explain to her and tell her when everything cool dung she can come back… Mi all mek a link fi she get a job and a lil apt fi herself.

she end up leaving and guh stay wid her next fren never kno d gal have mi up and a carry feelings and still a call her n dem ting.. D nite before mi come England mi n her fren dem end up a fite dats d same fren weh she did a stay wid and the girl talk out everything weh SHAUNA BINNS tell her bout mi i mean everything nothing was left unsaid.. MI still talk to her after

When mi come England she call mi and say her man beat her up and mash up her glasses and phone mi tek up £400 an odd and buy back glasses and phone send guh give her cawz she cant see widdout d glasses. A few months after dat mi call her and ask her fi buy something fi mi dat only cost $3000 jamaican. Mi say to her shauna i will send u the money she say to mi no cawz all d tings dem weh mi do fi her.. dat was like the November 2008, February 2009 mi text her and say anuh d world mi ask yuh fi buy enuh. Shen sent back a text saying “MY GIRL MI HAVE MI BILLS DEM FI PAY TOO ENUH”.

Is this bitch for real when she hungry a mi buy her food she live a mi yawd rent free bills free have mi car a drive and not even gas she nuh put in deh and have the nerve

Gracelove, I completely understand what you are saying…..I found out the hard way that its better to release them and TRY not to harbor any ill feeling (truss mi, dat shit hard fi do)…..used to get terrible chest pains whenever I did….had to make a choice…..my health or you WICKED person

I respect what you’re saying Obara, but in my experience, praying for those who have done me wrong has helped me to release hurt, pain and resentment, towards them, the rest I leave up to God, I can’t carry that load with me, It only makes me physically sick, and puts road blocks in my life. I can only be responsible for my actions and my reactions in life. not how people treat me. I just trust that whatever I put out into the universe will always come back to me.

I don’t really get too close to people for the simple reason that they always seem to betray me….

When my child’s father and I broke up, I was going through a very stressful time – not because of the breakup itself, but a lot of things were happening – my Aunt was visiting at the time and I went to visit them. Years later a cousin of mine told me that this girl (a total stranger mind you) saw my picture and said ‘Isn’t she so and so? the same one that been acting all crazy since her babydaddy left her?’…. When asked who told her that she told my cousin (who by the way is that same Aunt’s daughter) that it was my Aunt who told her that and a lot of other things (the girl was dating my Aunts son at the time so it was not hard to believe)..

To tell you that I was hurt is an understatement. I could not speak to her for months. She kept asking my mom why, and even though I told my mom what I had heard, she begged me to speak to her……I just couldn’t – I can’t play the hypocrite like that….If mi nuh inna yuh, yuh agoh noe….naw goh argue or fight – unless I have to – mi duss ahgoh tek whey misself

Thank you Obara for this post, I can truly relate. My mother always says that I need protection from myself, because I give too much to people, sometimes to the point where I don’t have anything left for me. just because one of my blessings in life is that I love to see people happy….but it hurts me to see that since childhood some of those same people who I thought were my friends…. who I’ve loved and extended so much of myself too, always seem to betray or turn their backs on me…. I even started to question my character and my integrety…..maybe I had wronged them….it was just hard for me to believe that people could easily be so hateful, evil, jealous and deceitful and be so comfortable with it. I truly thank God for the heart, mind and spirit that he has given to me, because I can stand confidently here today and say that he has molded me into the beautiful person I am, and I am blessed!!! I will still continue to pray God’s grace into the lives of those who have wronged me!!! Ase!!!!
