People hate what they don't understand....
You are beautiful, intelligent, hard-working, educated, modest, enterprising, confident, generous, domesticated, kind, passionate, loyal, dependable, spiritual, loving, strong, maybe even expressive...and yet they want you to be apologetic for having some STANDARDS and VALUES...like its a heinous crime. Shioor!
Since when did striving for EXCELLENCE become a bad thing? Ehn? You are not bush enough, not RATCHET or raggedy enough, don't have enough sad stories to tell, not LOW maintenance, can't soak Garri, can't speak pidgin, not throwing enough PITY parties and embarrassing yourself. Kai!
You can't tell jokes...(yes, I know i can't but all the same I have a witty sense of humour and I can laugh damn hard when I'm told a good one). I didn't GROW up in a one bedroom apartment. Yes but I know what it felt like to LOSE a mansion and be homeless. I wasn't raised by a SINGLE parent but I know what it feels like to end up one. Mschewww.....*sigh.
I love to eat Indian basmati rice when I can afford it but I also know what it feels like to be so broke that I can't even afford abakiliki rice. Yes ke! I can't manage.....Ehn! See News.... I'm too uppity. Hian! How do you know that? Biko, Park well joor...Hahahah. I know what it feels like to live like a QUEEN and hustle like a maid. As in err....Don't judge me! Just like you, I'm fighting my own personal DEVILS.
You say I have the world at my feet. I laugh! Do you know how hard, I have to work to nurture my friendships and still keep my INTEGRITY? You say I'm getting attention....Seriously? When you are snoring at night....I'm working my BRAINS off. Abeg, comot for road make I see better joor. I'm sad, you are INTIMIDATED by prospect, intimidated by hard work and mentally clouded by ignorance and envy...but I will no longer suppress my desire to be the BEST I can be, simply because I'm surrounded by those with little information, no values and certainly no DESIRE to serve a better PURPOSE and be the best they also can be. Does it piss me off when I see people hating others because of their achievements? Yep! Does it piss me off when inept people constantly criticise without construction, instead of encouraging. Hell Yeah! When you are busy spreading your hate, remember everyone has their own STORY and their own battles to conquer.
I may not be perfect but I'm an EXTRAORDINARY woman and a rare gem. I didn't create myself, God did... So if you have problems with the quality and depth of a person's SUBSTANCE, then your problem is with God, not them. If you can't emulate positivity....Don't worry, there's a transformer in your neighbourhood. Feel free to give it a warm big hug! Hahahah!
Have A Fantastic Friday Lovelies! Kisses.
