DO NOT SAY I TOLD YOU

DO NOT SAY I TOLD YOU

– The Problem with Confiding in Blabbermouths

YORUBA: Abánirẹ́ fi àlàfo ìjà s’ílẹ̀.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: The friendly person leaves a gap for an unforeseen disagreement.

CLARIFICATION: Telling a friend everything about oneself could mean giving that friend the weapons to use against one, if there is a disagreement in the future.
