Let It Be Timely

Of what use is a thing when it comes late or too early? The worst is when it is too late, or mistakes have been made.

Mistakes that would have been avoided if they had come earlier. My friend shared one of her experiences in this regard, an experience she will not forget in a hurry. Her story goes thus... While I was gisting with my parents in the sitting room, enjoying our family time together, moving one gist to the other until we landed on one that related to promiscuity, and they started giving me sex education.

You know, all the while they were talking,l was just laughing at them from within. All l was asking myself was, of what use is this information when l was already in my middle 20s and had even lost my virginity? As they talked, l pretended to be listening when l was not. Where were they when l needed this sex education at every stage of my life, depending on my age? What do I need their sex education for when I have lost that which was so precious to me, my virginity?

With what l went through as a result of not getting timely information on sex from my parents,l have made up my mind to give the right information on everything good to my future children and every young person around me at every stage of their lives, depending on their age, she said. They were busy shying away from it; now see what they have done to my life? They mustn't miss it as l did.

I could feel her pains, to lose what you so cherish, to lose what you would have loved to offer to your future husband as a token of your love to him. I so appreciate the fact that she decided to do unto her children and every young person out there what was not done for her, having known that right actions in the future are the only remedy to correct past mistakes, rather than constantly dwelling on them. Let's lend these young people our helping hand when it matters.
