The Need To Be Who You Are
Do you have people in your life who just dont get you? They just cant understand your need to be you...in order to co-exist successfully with them, they would rather have you dumb it down a bit....you know, dim your light a bit.
Don't settle for such people... who ever likes you should be able to love you the way you are... we all have one life...and its in God's hand. The need to be who you are in this life is all that matters. Don't let anyone rob you of this all in the name of acceptance...
Here is an advise my friend gave me recently:
''...na you sabi were e dey pinch you so y allow 'world people' to control you? What makes you think their views on you will get you to the destination you seek?
Just be you and keep flying! Abi you think success comes to those who don't take risks? who are too dumb? who keep seeking for approval first?? shy, reticent, fearful, timid people wandering 'what will Mena think of me' first thing in the morning, throughout the day and last thing at night? tufiakwa
think am na, The people that TRULY want your progress are few and far between cus they want it for themselves. Ever heard of PHD (pull him/her down?) aka the crab mentality??word!
Please the only person you should look up to is your God and Creator emphasis on 'your' cus it seems people have different gods they are worshiping'.
Imma leave you with this song by Glady's Knight o jare... Have a good weekend
