So you just got served breakfast while living in your parents’ house. To you, the world is ending and you’re losing your mind. But to your parents, they can’t understand why you haven’t cooked for everyone in the house on a Saturday morning.
These are all the stages of going through a breakup in your parent’s house.
You’re still in shock
You’re in the denial phase so it seems like everything is normal. But that’s just the calm before the storm.
You start to break down but still keep a straight face
It eventually hits you that you’ve been dumped and suddenly you want to cry. But you can’t, because how do you explain that it’s love that’s doing you like this?
You start acting out on everyone
This is even worse if you have younger siblings because it’s Kunle that broke your heart, but you’re screaming at 11-year-old Joshua who just wants some help with his homework. Poor child.
Someone notices and asks you what’s wrong
You say it’s nothing, and when they push too far, you ask them to mind their business. You’re not wrong sha because nobody sent you to fall in love.
You’re finally ready to cry but you have to run errands first
You finally get some alone time to let it all out, but as you start shedding tears, mummy calls you to go and buy fuel.
You suddenly fall sick
How won’t this happen after two intense weeks of pent-up pain while running too many errands? Your parents think it’s malaria that’s dealing with you but you know it’s your immune system trying to purge all the feelings you caught from your body.
You recover after a few days and you’re ready to get your heart broken again
Because you have coconut head, and you no dey hear word. Two weeks from now, you’ll be in another talking stage.
