I’m Worth The Wahala

Wahala [Wah-ha-lah] 1.   Problem Ex: No wahala, I go move. (No problem, I’ll move) 2.   Trouble Ex: Wahala dey come. (Trouble is coming.) For many,many years, I’ve deemed myself unworthy of the trouble and conflict that comes with difficult conversations and conflict resolution. I’ve been told that I seem as if nothing bothers me.
