Every demon has its own tree

My good friend and I were discussing about other people's love lives.

Alright, alright we were gossiping. At some point, we concurred on how so-and-so was such a difficult person that we couldn't understand how they could find a partner.

Or if they already had a partner, we couldn't believe it.

(I know, that was mean but I'm being completely honest with you).

After we batted remarks back and forth, my friend was silent for a while and he said : "In Africa (he's African, by the way), we have a saying. Every demon has its own tree."

Every whut? I said. Are you calling other people demons, Paul? (His name is Paul).

My friend explained that no matter what sort of person you were, you would very likely find someone who likes you. Or someone who is willing to marry you.

Because in Africa, every demon has its own tree and somewhere to live.

So even someone the majority finds undesirable can rest in the presence of another person who appreciates him or her in all their glory.

Now, that saying comes to mind everytime the same topic pops up.

Indeed, every demon has its own tree. What's your favorite saying?

"We are all one with God" is one of my favorite sayings. It gives hope, for everyone.

The saying is true enough, I suppose.My favorite saying?It is ''Live and Let Live.''

That's a good saying. I must remember that one. The similar one here would be "there's someone for everyone"

That is a good saying, I always say 'don't have children if you aren't willing to be a parent'.

"Never give up unless God said so!" I think that is my favorite one.
You attract who you are, it only means that the person you attract is a person who has the same attitude like yours. Our mentor says if you are a bad person you will be attract to a bad person too, even if there is a person who has a good heart who feel for you ... you are the one who will stop seeing the person because you can never stand the goodness of his heart.

We might as well say that every demon will find his own demoness, and both live happily in crime.

I hate the saying.. it sounds a not so good thing. Having a demons has its own tree... I mean in love or in any life... God has a great plan for anyone we just have to wait for it and while waiting we must prepare more for that great thing so we are ready to handle it so it will last forever.
