The Frog In A Slowly Heating Water.

I know a thing or two about bedwetting, like some of you reading this post right now.

For a child to bedwet, do you think it starts when they get on the bed and finally sleep?

Obviously, the answer is No!

It actually starts when the child wake up in the morning. Yes! Not when they sleep.

It starts from everything that goes into their mouth, from the time they wake up.

Then, it continues with every play and fun activity they engage in during the day.

It continues with what they still take in by evening and connected to everything they fail to do before spreading their happy legs on the bed.

Most children are never conscious that they bedwet until they finish their sleeping round by daybreak or the angry voice of a parent stop them from finishing the round like Argentina's football club always stop Nigeria's Super Eagles from proceeding. 

This thing called bedwetting is already happening to someone reading this too, it is happening in the form of an habit you experience in your life everyday.

For now, this your habit isn't patronizing itself to the people around you, like the wet bed does when it is spread outside and people perceive the smiling urine.

The habit didn't jump on you, it was a little here, a little there thing, but the calabash is likely to burst very soon if you don't take action.

A wise word says that the death that kills one's neighbour, is a proverb for one to wake up and be alert.

Do you want to be like the frog that doesn't take action when the water is slowing heating up, but will simply say, 'don't worry, I can handle it?'

For years, you have been telling everyone that you can handle it, but no, every day and night you still struggle, you know it.

Bedwetting doesn't start in the middle of the night, habits don't build up in an hour, pain doesn't disappear in a day.

Even real success rarely happens by chance.

My friend l, will you get up, speak out, take action when the temperature is still bearable or won't mind wasting away when the heat turn into fire and can no longer be quenched?

With Love, Fash.

Hi Damilola,

Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking post. I think we all need to speak up for what is important to us, and also to not wait until it's too late.

Hello Fash,
Thank you for this beautiful write up.
Situations and circumstances may push us into things we have no control over.
Yet, speaking out, seeking help, does go a long way.
Thanks again.
