"Tí òjò bá kọ̀ tí ò rọ̀, ìyẹn ò ní ká sọ pé kí omi òkun ya wọ̀lu " That the rain didn't fall is no reason to wish the sea would flood the city.
Sometimes, you don't get what you want so you decide to have a fit. You get carried away and run to extremes without thinking things through. Maybe you seek revenge. Perhaps you go out of your way to prove your point. Suddenly, you go to great lengths to get attention.
Compensation will never replace transformation. The adoration of one million suitors will never replace a single glance from your beloved. Being "right" in the eyes of ten thousand "supporters" is nothing compared to being ACCEPTED by your destined mate. To cause a lifetime of suffering in retaliation for being offended is insignificant compared to a moment of forgiveness.
