US-based Nigerian Actress, Stella Damasus has shared her thoughts on how folks have zero tolerance for people who don’t win and also have zero tolerance for those who make mistakes.
Stella is reacting to the wild celebration of Nigerians over the victory of the Super Eagles.
According to her, it’s sad that people made memes mocking and trolling the Super Eagles when they lost to Croatia last week.
Read her interesting post below…
“A short while ago, the #nigerian football team lost a match and a lot of people went off on the players. Memes were created to mock them. Some people said while others were practicing the Nigerian team was busy marketing the Jersey that was sold out and they were dancing shaku shaku. Today they have won the game and the narrative has suddenly changed. All of a sudden they are the best team ever and people have started creating memes that are opposite of the former ones. This is exactly how life is and how we are as human beings. We have zero tolerance for people who don’t win, we have zero tolerance for those who make mistakes, we have zero tolerance for those who don’t meet up to our expectations. What we fail to realize is that no one is perfect. We win some and we loose some so we should not be crucified when things don’t go the way we hoped. The painful part is that this ZERO TOLERANCE world is what we are leaving for our children. We are raising kids who watch and learn, kids who see how we knock down and bash those who don’t win. When these kids grow up, guess what they would to themselves when they don’t hit the mark? Then we wonder why some children kill themselves and others in their moment of rage and a feeling of failure. God help us all. Congratulations to the team. #stelladamasus #supereagles #nigeria #naija #football #worldcup #nyc #actor #speaker”
