‘I loved a man who never loved me back for so long’ Grace Ekirapa

Grace Ekirapa has shared a touching on how she loved a man who did not love her back .She would look forward to be with him even if he did not speak to her.

According to her people around her thought she was crazy at some point but the good thing is that she has overcome that stage in her life.

Here is what she posted.

“Loving Unconditionally
Have you ever been in a relationship but clearly you are in it alone?? Well, for the longest time I was in a relationship with the man of my dreams, then.

I truly thought it was a fairy tale.

The only thing I forgot to see was that he was the man of my dreams but I wasn’t his. I loved him and respected him as well as I knew how.

I didn’t care whether he reciprocated and this was because I fell in love with him more than anything else.

It was so crazy that i would look forward to just being around him even if he did not speak to me.

I spoke about him to everybody who knew me and i’m sure they thought I was crazy.

The relationship was one sided and only worked on his terms but I was too blind to see because I was in love.

Grace Ekirapa

She adds

I communicated so often but he only responded when he had nothing to do.

I bought the best gifts, and with the only money I had, sometimes. but to him, I was just another girl in love and I would get over it.

He came first to me but for him I was never first.Today I look at this and I reflect on our relationship with God.

He is the one on the relationship that loves us unconditionally.We dictate how the relationship runs and only talk to Him when we have nothing else to do.

We spend time with Him when we have run out of plots. We give to Him what we don’t even treasure. We don’t speak about him to everybody.

I don’t know who you are out Thea but I know the pain of loving somebody who does not love you back nor appreciate.

I’m not saying God will cry or leave like I did but what i’m saying is, work on your relationship now. Don’t miss out on the chance to love God back now while you still can.

This is the time to adore Him even if your heart is heavy because He will lift the heaviness. God bless you as you reflect on the Unconditional Love.

Lucky to be alive: Celebs who’ve opened up about trying to commit suicide

Suicide is still talked about in hushed tones despite the fact that it is on the rise. Some celebs have however opened up on battling suicidal thoughts.

Hard as it may be these guys opened up and shared on how they overcame the situation.

1. Oliver Mathenge

Oliver who is a Digital Editor – Radio Africa Group, has not had it easy. He has not only battled alcoholism but has also battled suicidal attempts not once but twice.

In a post titled “Once Upon A Bottle” Oliver wrote

“For two years I struggled with the urge to be high and since I do not do any drugs alcohol was a quick solution.

I had given up on life in a manner that pushed me to escape reality and seek to avoid everyday challenges.

I could not survive a day without alcohol unless I was too hangovered to get out of bed.

In between the day in the office I would go out  to have a few shots of whatever drink I thought my system needed.

Some Fridays drinking would start as early as midday and would sometimes go on until Sunday. (Yes I would spend two days in a bar like that’s all about life).

I was a slave,”he wrote in part.

Oliver Mathenge

The Digital boss revealed how he messed up family and social relationships and sunk into deep debt.

“I was breaking down, I messed up family and social relationships. I was messing up my job, until GOD decided I needed greater responsibilities to keep me in check.

I suffered uncontrollable meltdowns, I sunk into debt -as in hundreds of thousands as I sought to finance a champagne life on beer money.”

‘I almost committed suicide’ Oliver Mathenge confesses

Oliver at one point in his life tried twice to take his own life and disclosed that he lost many friends as a result of his horrible habit.

“I tried to take my life twice, again, GOD had to show me there’s still a lot to do on earth.

I lost friends because I could not be there for them unless there was alcohol involved.

I also had friends who were cheering me on as I wasted my life, which was seemingly coming to  a halt, alcohol took a lot form me .It took control of me.”

2. Grace Ekirapa

The beautiful TV host recently opened up on how she tried committing suicide not once but twice .

In  candid video posts on her Instagram Grace says:

“I took 18 pills and given the fact that I was unwell at the time I was also on antibiotics. I decided to swallow them all and just end my life.

In form three I tried again a,so I took 35 pills given that the 18 I had taken the previous time did not kill me I though to my self that 35 would do the job.

People did not understand why a 17 year old like me would want to commit suicide,What prompted that decision was all the negative energy surrounding me.

I had always been a sickly child and people at some point thought that I was faking my illness to stay away from school,even my own parents did not believe me.”

3. Mejja

In a past interview on Radio Jambo, Mejja also opened up on how he almost committed suicide after his now ex wife dumped him through a text.

He narrates

“We had not disagreed actually we were so happy. That day, I was in Thika and I got her message asking me If I had arrived well, I told her, yes and the next thing she told me was ‘Move on with your life’. The next time I called her, she neither received nor returned my calls.”

On receiving the message, Mejja thought it was a prank by his wife only to go home and find her missing. That broke him given that he was longing to start a family and he was not even sure of why she had left in the first place.

During a visit to his ex wife to see his baby Mejja asked the wife why she left but she still had no valid reason, something that broke him even more.

Speaking about it to his friends was a tall order given that men are not comfortable discussing some issues with their fellow men. This is because of the fear of being ridiculed and stigmatization.
The rapper revealed:

“As a man, sharing that with my friends, was the hardest thing. It consumed me inside for so long but at last I decided to open up. I could not imagine the mother of my child living another man.”

It is at that period that the thought of ending his life came to his mind, but he did not go through with it,

“Committing suicide was one of the thought that came in my mind, especially because I felt like there was something wrong but the best thing was that I had a friend who would come to my house. We would chat and slowly all the suicidal thoughts faded away and I got better.”

These photos of Grace Ekirapa’s sexy sisters will leave you drooling

Grace Ekirapa is loved by many. Her grace and skill on our screens every Sunday morning has stolen out hearts.

However, not much is known about her family which includes her two siblings and her dad.

She lost her mother 18 years ago. Going by the photos it is evident that they are a close knit family. Early this year she celebrated her dad for being there for them.

Her dad is the only parent they have left.

She wrote

“These pictures speak about the person you have been in my life. Hardly few years after I was born, Mama went to be with the Lord and you stepped in and became both Mum and Dad. You have been the best dad in the best way you know how, you have held my hand, you have been my security, you have been the invisible fuel to my journey. Daddy, I know I might not always say this or show it but it doesn’t mean it’s not my heartbeat. I love you soo much and I thank God for you everyday. You are in my life because nobody else fits the job. Happy Father’s Day to you Daddy. The main Ekirapa❤️❤️❤️”

In another post, Grace wrote:

“Often at times we have heartbreaks in our life and it seems like the walls have been tipped over, the stones have been overturned and we are just left soo devastated and disappointed. Heartbreak hurts, maybe its a loss of Job or a health situation, death in the family, divorcee or maybe your girl/boyfriend left you.”

“Well I have never done the MCM thing ever, so I want to start today with my all time MCM that is my dad. This man is the true definition of a lion. He is not always talking but when he says one word, it compensates for all the times he did not speak. He is my hero. He is my biggest critic but above all my greatest fan.

Grace Ekirapa is with no doubt, one of the charming TV sirens in the entertainment industry. Her beauty and intelligence has always thrilled her fans to watch her every Sunday.

She is a God fearing woman and you can tell from the way she carries herself and her mode of dressing and lifestyle, but she rarely talks about her life and likes to keep her private issues from the limelight.

She recently posted a photo of her shading tears to what is seen as a deep moment of prayer.

grace

Here is the prayer

Lord, my God, I cry to Thee;
In my distress Thou helpest me.
My soul and body I commend
Into Thy hands; Thine angel send
To guide me home and cheer my heart
When Thou dost call me to depart.

Jesus Christ, Thou Lamb of God,
Once slain to take away our load,
Now let Thy cross, Thine agony,
Avail to save and solace me,
Thy death, to open heav’n, and there
Bid me the joy of angels share.

Holy Spirit, faithful Friend,
Grant me Thy comfort to the end.
When death and hell assail me sore,
Leave me, oh, leave me, nevermore,
But bear me safely through the strife,
As Thou hast promised, into life
