BE YOUR TRUE AUTHENTIC SELF (PT1)
I’ve found myself in a place where I’m not ashamed to tell my story. I have a platform and I have a voice .
I’m still learning everyday but while I’m at it I hope I can positively be of impact to someone.
I’ve stopped asking the why questions like why do people say I am this ? Or why did he or she speak about me like that? Why did God take my dad away from me?
Why are things the way they are?
Why did INEC postpone the elections?
Nothing really happens in a place of WHY
The whys don’t matter to me any more .
What matters to me now is the WHAT
what do I need to do to be a better friend, sister, daughter, fashion entrepreneur?
What do I have to offer the world ?
What can I say to make things right ?
What can I do to help?
What impact have I made?
What kind of person am I becoming?
What needs am I meeting?
Growing up I was bullied and teased about my buck teeth . I can still remember those days vividly and I remember how much it hurt to be laughed at, reasons why You can never catch me laughing at peoples shortcomings or making fun of people.
We are all different people created by God on our different journeys. No 2 persons are alike and I believe that if God wanted us to be perfect he would have created us to be perfect. So in my world and in my story , perfection is a myth.
Embrace your flaws , that’s what makes you , YOU.
For every time I have been hurt by words or by the way people treated me I’ve never been the girl who placed her self worth on other people’s definition of me.
No I’ve never needed People’s validation to thrive or live .
Looking back today , lost in my thoughts I now know why.
The Why lies in how I was raised. My dad taught me never to ever feel small in front of others and when people threw hurtful comments at me and I came home crying I remember him always asking me “did you fight back?”
I learnt to fight for myself.
I learnt to stick up for me.
I learnt to believe in me .
I learnt to be happy for me.
I learnt to always rise above everything
And most importantly I’ve learnt to be my true authentic self .
I hope you do too. Have a blessed week 🙏🏾
