You are not in this world to please people who don’t even know who they are

Dear woman, you weren’t created to please people who don’t even know who they are, where they are going and what they want out of life.

You are here to live your own life, walk your own path, learn things, make mistakes, learn from them and enjoy your life.

Stop worrying about people understanding you, who you are and what you are passionate about.

Get in touch with yourself instead. Find out what makes you tick. Discover what makes your heart leap.

Focus on the things that inspire you to be your best self. Focus on what makes you happy and what makes your soul feel at peace.

You are your biggest commitment, so start by loving yourself unconditionally. Stop waiting for people to love you first.

Love yourself. Love your flaws. Love your weirdness. Love your body. Love your smiles. Love your intensity and vulnerability.

You are not in this world to please people who don’t even know who they are

Life becomes much more fulfilling when you learn to be kind to yourself first, when you love yourself and put yourself first.

Life becomes more meaningful when you appreciate who you are and the efforts you are making to live well.

Be yourself. Don’t wish to be like someone else, you don’t know the secret battles they are fighting and what they are dealing with.

Don’t forget that the world keeps spinning whether people understand you or not so why not make your life a bestseller?

I’m particularly concerned about Nigerian women who are still fearful about living life on their terms because they want to be liked by everyone.

These women are ready to live in society’s prison as long as they are in everybody’s good books. That’s not the best way to live life.

You don’t go through life seeking validation and permission from this society, you will never get it. You have to take it by force.

This society doesn’t care about you, your dreams, your talents and well being. You are the architect of your own life so go out there and live.

Breathe. Live free. You are not here to please people at the detriment of your sanity and well being. You were created to fulfill purpose, so go get it!
