Kenyans, majuu is very lonely…..

Guys, it’s lonely out here. And I will tell you one thing….no one actually cares. In some cases people will even make it harder for you so that you can go back to your country.

That’s why I have to fore warn you. So please take notes…..

1.  Cultural differences make forming new friendships abroad extra challenging.

We all know that immigrants leave old friends and make new ones, but sometimes we don’t appreciate how how challenging making friends cross-culturally can be. In the book Foreign to Familiar, cultures are categorized into two types: hot and cold. Generally speaking, people from “hot” cultures are relationship-oriented and “cold” are task-oriented. When someone from a culture that prioritizes people (such as an African or Indian) tries to integrate into a culture that prioritizes efficiency (such as Germany or Canada) or vice versa, often there is difficulty in forming relationships. The cold culture’s task-orientedness can come across as unfriendliness; the hot culture’s long unexpected visits can make a task-oriented person feel stressed. Cultural differences make newcomers miss the unspoken relational cues that locals would understand. Understanding cultural differences can help you reach out to internationals in a way that makes them feel loved and welcomed in a foreign country. (Foreign to Familiar could be useful if you’d like a quick introduction to cultural differences).

What the rest of the world thinks of Africa…..

2. Long-distance relationships can’t replace local, in-person relationships.

Perhaps we think that because of free international texting and video calling somehow loneliness is not so prevalent. Long distance friends Hare important, but it’s still true that “better a neighbour nearby than a relative far away.” A neighbour can offer the warm meal, the freshly made bed or the in-person companionship that no long-distance friend can offer. Modern technology has made communicating across the world easier, but even due to time zone differences your international friend might have no one to call in a moment of happiness or distress. Don’t underestimate the importance of being someone who offers real “face time” to an international or immigrant.

It’s ok to hate your adopted country….

3. Family and old friends cannot fully relate to them.

Anyone who has lived abroad and experienced new things knows that this comes at a cost—that of being less understood by the people who knew you before. Internationals need new friends who will share their experiences in this new phase of their lives.

4. Can’t disclose the details of their lives abroad.

When living abroad, it is easy for internationals to selectively share their lives with the people back home—often because they feel they must. Whether it is discussing financial success…or academic failure….many immigrants feel awkward telling their families the reality of their situation. Others are dating someone but can’t tell their conservative parents who plan to arrange a marriage for them. Your friendship can provide a safe place for them to be real.

  55. Djinn Amoureux, explication, symptomes et Traitements chez les musulmanesLe djinn amoureux est un démon qui vit et se cache dans le corps de sa victime et la prend comme son hôte.Ce type de djinn est amoureux de sa victime (un amour maladif très possessif) et il essaie par toutes ses forces de la posséder et de contrôler sa vie. Il se raccorde au cœur pour avoir une emprise sensationnelle. Ce démon diffuse la tristesse, la colère et plusieurs sensations négatives pour affaiblir le cœur de sa victime.Ses blocages et étouffements c’est le djin en toi qui les provoquent, pour ne pas lui donner l’occasion de faire ce qu’il veut sans entré dans les détails, évite de dormir sur le dos ou sur le ventreCe type de djinn se trouve aussi bien chez les hommes que chez les femmes, qu’ils soient célibataires ou déjà mariés. Cela dit, on le rencontre cependant plus souvent chez les femmes.I/ Parmi les symptômes :La personne atteinte peut avoir ce type de symptômes :- Ne veut jamais se marier ou change de sujets-Haine inexpliquée de l’autre sexe (masculin ou féminin)-Aime la solitude-Se regarde dans le miroir- Reste longtemps dans les toilettes, la salle de bain…- Se maquille la nuit avant de dormir des fois (les femmes)- S’énerve très rapidement et changement radical de comportement d’un extrême à l’autre.- Crise et perte de conscience si le malade se retrouve avec beaucoup de monde (par exemple dans un mariage, ou au marché…)- Refus total du mariage sans raison valable.- Rêves érotiques et rêves de mariage dans une église ou ailleurs.- Haine des bonnes odeurs et répulsion pour le Musk.- Incapacité à faire correctement les adorations comme le dikr, la prière…- Avoir des bleus sur le corps.- être paralysé dans le sommeil très fréquemment- dégoût et envie de vomir, oppression sur la poitrine surtout quand lemalade voit son conjoint, il (le malade) préfère qu’il (son conjoint) soit loin de lui.II/ Les raisons principales qui causent cette maladie :- Le mauvais oeil, surtout chez les personnes qui attirent les regards des autres par leur physique.- Un sihr de divorce (pratiquement dans tous les sihrs de divorce on trouve un djinn amoureux)- Le manque de pratique dans la religion- le Sihr tassfih (sort de virginité), pour empêcher les jeunes filles d’avoir des relations sexuelles avant le mariage- Un toucher par un djinn depuis très longtemps.- lire des histoires d’amour et voir des films érotiques.- Le manque de guidée vers le droit chemin et d’adorations.- La présence d’autres personnes malades dans la famille, comme les parents ou autre, sous un même toit- La femme qui ne porte pas Al-hijab Charii (le voile légal) qui est une protection importante chez les femmes.III/ Traitements de cette maladie :L’auteur de laqt al Morjan a dit : la raison pour laquelle le djinn amoureux possède le corps et les rapports intimes. C’est pour cela que le malade doit empêcher le djinn à tout prix d’avoir des relations intimes et ne pas le laisser profiter de lui.Pour cela,- il ne faut pas dormir sans habits ou avec des habits transparents- quand on change ses habits, il faut dire bissmilah Alladi la ilaha illa howa ( Au nom d’ ALLAH, il n’y a d’autre divinité que LUI) avec l’intention de se protéger des yeux des djinns- bien faire les adhkars (invocations de protection) du matin et soir.- Éviter les péchés et faire des bonnes actions- Éviter de dormir seul et demander régulièrement à Allah qu’Il nous préserve du mal de ce djinn.
