Mystical war: “I am a victim of mom's co-wife, what should I do?”
Society and lifestyle
Wow ... what a shock! I always knew and saw the wickedness of this “witch”, my mother's co-wife, but I never imagined that she would come to that.Updated on January 22, 2021, Guest
“I refrain from revealing my name, but I want to share this experience that I am having and seek your opinions. I come from a polygamous family. My father has four wives. He is a particular man, who often privileges his personal pleasures first over those of his own children. It’s not easy to admit, but I cannot deny this blatant and unfortunate fact either. My mother, my father's first wife, is exceptionally kind. I do not say it because it was she who carried me inside her for 9 months, but simply by the fact that she always forgives people who keep hurting her, her co-wives and my father. So you can imagine how I can feel for my own dad. Of course, despite all the harm that these people are trying to do to mom, they can't get her directly... that's when they're thinking of other tactics: attacking mom’s children, us, including me.
The problem is that although I am of polygamous family, I did not grow up there. So I have no idea of these mystical wars between co-wives work, each trying to neutralize the other to better place themselves next to the “king”, my father. Today, I have become the ideal prey of one of my mother's co-wives, the “witch”. The only fault I committed is to work hard to succeed and please my mother, my brothers and sisters... but also to fulfill my duties towards my father whatever my feelings towards him, Senegalese traditions oblige.
Now for several months I have been living in a more or less difficult situation. I am looking for a new job abroad. I have all the experience and skills I need, I get a lot of calls from recruiters, I go interview after interview. But what is weird is that each time my application is rejected at the last minute after two to three interviews for reasons never explained. I still continued to show perseverance and tell myself each time that “God is teaching me a life lesson and that tomorrow the sun will shine.” But the difficulties persist with more surprising scenarios than the other... I still refused, despite everything, to believe that there was a person who mystified me ... because, in my life I never wanted to hurt anyone, so I wondered why anyone would want to hurt me. Now my big sister of the same mother and father decided to go see a marabout (someone who sees the past and future). She is always behind her brothers ... to make sure that no one is trying to get them. Once at the marabout, the latter reveals an unpleasant surprise to him: "your mother's co-wife “number X” went to cast a spell on your brother so that he could never achieve his objectives".
Wow ... what a shock! I always knew and saw the wickedness of this “witch”, my mother's co-wife, but I never imagined that she would come to that.
I therefore seek your opinions on the reaction to be given to this unpleasant discovery; should I retaliate mystically? Should I just protect myself should I believe what the marabout revealed?
Your opinions will be very useful to me ... thank you in advance.”
