    I can sympathize with you on this one here as i also feel a little like you about my own country of birth – even tho my country is in a slightly different situation – i have been living elsewhere for such a long time – i dont really miss it .
    I do hope situation in Nigeria improve x sending big hugs
    – from a fellow citizen of the world x

    Good for you on staying true to yourself. It’s sad that the situation in Nigeria is as it is, I often wonder what has happened to our world. xx

  3. I think it is so important to say how you feel rather than how you are ‘supposed’ to feel.

  4. Jo Brigdale says:

    I agree with you that everyone should be citizens of the world and we should all do our best to make it the best we can

  5. I completely agree with you in that we should strive to make the world we live in a better place. I identify as Welsh rather than British but that’s a whole other story.

  6. I agree with your last comments about where we are living being home and how we should strive to make that a better place. I do hope that the situation in Nigeria improves

    I think generally the world is a sorry state as a whole which is very sad. Hopefully there will be a time where we can all be pround once again of where we came from. However, our origins don’t have to define us – as they say the past is the past and the future hasn’t happened yet – so live in the here and now. You dont have to forget where you came from but Celebrate who you are now and the place your rump happens to rest at this moment haha

  8. I think of myself as British rather than European. I rarely travel abroad so love my home country and haven’t had a chance to appreciate many of the other wonderful countries out there. I wish the world was more united 😦

  9. Here’s hoping that one day the national anthem rings true. Not just in Nigeria, but all over the world. I think we all need it!

    It must be hard to have such mixed views about your home country but i really enjoyed reading this post and lets hope that in the future people’s hopes and prayers result in a better Nigeria for all!
