It is a pleasure coming your way
again this week. Hope you had a nice weekend? I enjoy doing what I do as I have
seen my creative self delving into many times at the same time and I am seeing
results. I will also want to appreciate those who have been reading this weekly
series; you are the source of my encouragement up to the 81st
article in the series.
This is the first part of this
topic and it will continue from another angle next week. I have 2 friends; who
started out in a small office and they had to agree to rent an apartment
together. One paid for the apartment while the other bought furniture of the
same amount. At a certain time, one of them wanted to get married and the other
had to excuse the couple. The one who excused the other went with all his
furniture and the apartment was empty again to some extent and unfortunately,
he lost some items to his friend. It is a world of mine and ours!
Mine is a situation when you have
absolute control over what you possess, this implies that nobody can claim the
ownership of it apart from you. However, there is a mistake is commonly made
especially by siblings that what is mine is ours but there are exceptions to
this rule. What is mine would definitely match my taste; not necessarily yours and
I will be wholly responsible to and for it.
Ours is a phenomenon where we
jointly own something. This is mainly when we make the purchase together;
inherit a property together amongst others. Ours is a situation two parties
have equal access to a particular thing. However, many a times, nobody is
willing to talk responsibility or one mismanages it at the expense of others.
In order not to make bitterness
thrive or have ill-feelings towards others. I will implore you to focus on
developing your personality, asset and in fact (net)worth. There are hundreds
of people who have left properties and many other valuable to the
less-privileged because they have grown beyond the “old assets” bequeathed unto
I will focus on mine and not on
ours so that the best in me can emerge!
Have a great week ahead.
