“Girllll it’s easy to love me now, would you love me if I was down and out–would you still have love for me…girrllll!?” To many, it was just a song by 50 Cent. But for many men could really relate to it on a daily basis. Society told men that when it comes to providing and protecting, the weight of the world was on their shoulders and it was the only way to be respected by women. Sometimes women believe that they are the only ones who have insecurities about whether or not they will be good enough. But the truth is that many men go through the same gambit of emotions and doubts. Here are a few questions that men might just have.
1. If I lost it all today would you still be with me?
Relationships can take us on journeys and rollercoasters. One year he could go from making six figures and providing a stable and secure lifestyle, and the next year he could get laid off and go back to barely making ends meet. No man ever plans on that happening. But just like women, men want to feel secure in the fact that they won’t be left high and dry when they fall on hard times. 50 Cent said it best “If I went back to a hooptie from a Benz would you *poof* and disappear like some of my friends?”

As much as men want to protect their families and their women from everything, there may be a time when what he does just isn’t enough. Sometimes, he may put in the effort but he may not get there in time or sometimes he may not have what it takes to protect you from a certain person or thing or situation. If he failed you that one, time would you still be able to respect him? Or would he be met with so much resentment that the relationship would fall apart?
3. If I wasn’t satisfying you sexually would you cheat on me?
Women aren’t the only ones who have insecurities about their ability to consistently satisfy their mates sexually. He may think “what if she gets curious? What if she gets bored with me? What if she stops desiring me?” YES believe it or not men go through these same thought processes, although many of them wouldn’t dare to admit it because of course that would be too “soft” or “weak.”
4. What if I don’t turn out to be the father you expected me to be?
The same way that women worry about not being enough as a Mother, men share in those same sentiments as it relates to fatherhood. What if I don’t live up to what my wife expects from me as a father? What if my child doesn’t turn out the way I raised him or her to be? What if I’m not able to provide him or her with all of the things and opportunities that I wanted to? What if I don’t live up to the expectations? These questions are very real to lots of men.
We can’t always control how other people act or behave, but we can control the effort that we put into doing the best that we can and being the best men that we can be!
We all know that no man or woman is perfect, but maybe what you now have a better grasp of is that men deal with the burdens of imperfection as well, sometimes to a high degree. All we can do is hope that we choose wisely in a mate and that we become the best we can be personally and in the relationship. We can’t always control how other people act or behave, but we can control the effort that we put into doing the best that we can and being the best men that we can be! With that said…..rest your mind young man…and know that you can, and will deliver.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example
Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.
Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.
The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.
With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.
Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.
Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.
Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’
To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.
With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
