A Story About Power

This is a true story, as told by a friend.

There was once a young man in University of Ilorin who was in love with a young lady. The lady didn’t feel the same way and so, she kept him in the friend zone. He became a confidante or best friend of sorts. She later dated a “bad boy” on campus.

One day, the lady ran to her best friend, in tears. She was pregnant for the bad boy and needed money to have an abortion. The young man with a cold calculating look in his eye, insisted she must sleep with him first. He said he must “take his turn” and only then would he give her money for an abortion. He “wanted” her but someone else had her first. Now, his desire was to humiliate her for rejecting him.

The moral of the story is, you will only truly know yourself when you have power over others. I had an acquaintance once, who made a habit of dating and discarding naive “small girls”. He would say, “They are adults. They can take care of themselves.” I also knew a woman who kept stringing along nice guys whom she never had intentions of dating. These people don’t understand the full nature of power. More importantly, they do not appreciate the abuse of power and the nature of Karma.
