I met a lady who was a Jehovah witness member.
Truth be told, I never understood the modus operandi of that church.
When I finally got to understand that they don't marry someone who is not a member of the church, I was so deep into that girl already so I couldn't pull out .
I was in my final year then and she Just got admitted .
She was from a not well to do home.
I didn't have a sister, I never knew how it felt to have one so I took her like my own blood.
I encouraged her, supported her.
I realised I loved her even more than how I loved my own self.
Before I went for service, we talked about so many things before I left.
My three weeks in camp, I observed she was never calling to check how I was fairing.
Most times when I call, she will pick up and say she is busy and was going to call me back but she never did.
When I left camp and came back home, I seriously wanted to see her but she was just avoiding me.
Truth is, we never had issues before I went to camp.
When I finally got to meet with her, she told me she was never going to marry me because I am not a member of Jehovah witness.
I ignored that and I kept on loving her with the hope that she will see my love beyond me being a member of her church.
I saw her through her ND program.
I gave her everything she needed.
I didn't do all this because I had much, I did all that because I loved her and I wanted to marry her.
It was Christmas period like this, I came back home and I went to see her, she was home but acted like she went out.
I kept on calling her lines but she was not picking up.
I got sad and went home.
When I got home, I came online to read her messages.
She said it was over between us, I asked her why, she said she wants to stay on her own.
I was totally broken but I had to put myself together and move on.
I could not believe what just happened.
Love sucks and love hurts.
At that point, I knew I have wasted 3 good years of my life with the wrong person so I dusted my shirt and moved on.
