Sayings of the Wise

In haste there is regret, but in patience and care there is peace and safety.

Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

We should never rush things, if you rush you might end up with regrets. For instance, in establishing a relationship with a person, say a girl and a boy, most times we do not take the time to know each other better. There is always a rush to getting married because you believe that is love but, it could simply be infatuation.

Imagine getting married to someone whom you hardly know. You think you love them, but it might be blind to who they truly are. You may not want to hear anything negative said about the person, words which could be the truth and help you open your eyes. Most such marriages do not last. The two are strangers to one another; and in the process, you discover that there’s so much that you do not know about each other. This can be very frustrating. You may feel like walking out of the marriage but feel ashamed to do so. And if you decide to stay, you are miserable and might become depressed. Both staying in the marriage and walking out of it becomes unpalatable to you. Walking away subjects one to the many fingers pointing at them for breaking up a family. Staying with a person you barely know can easily become staying with a person you resent.

No matter your age, try practicing a little patience to achieve favorable outcomes.

The Healing Hands Project: Wisdom and Wellness through Art

The Healing Hands project will economically empower people to achieve financial autonomy by building entrepreneurial skills and embedding skills transfer within the community – eliminating poverty as a driver of ill mental health. Funds raised from the jewelry will help sustain the implementation of accessible psychosocial interventions in underserved communities and promote the economic empowerment of the grandmothers who have been trained in and are implementing WHO’s mental health Gap Action Program. Healing Hands provides interpersonal counseling, group talk therapy, and psychoeducation resources delivered through arts, where clients learn to handcraft traditional beaded jewelry as a marketable skill. .
