Hi, what are you looking for?



The older I get, the more I don’t want to fit into society’s hypocritical boxes

The older I get, the more I don't want to fit into society's hypocritical boxes

“The older I get, the more I want to live a good life without pandering to societal expectations or trying to fit into society’s hypocritical boxes.

The older I get, the more I don’t want to be around drama, stress or conflict. Engaging in such negative activities is mentally draining.

Right now, I just want to live. I just want to be happy, live free and be all I can be despite my fears and shortcomings.


I just want to make more money, eat good food, have great sex, savour the fragrance of my favorite perfumes and surround myself with happy people.

I want to go on adventures, visit beautiful countries, taste their exquisite cuisines, and take enough pictures to last me a lifetime.

This is all I want for now, so help me God.”

This is what I want for myself, what do you want? How do you want to live your life? What kind of people do you want around you?

What kind of relationships do you want? What are you doing to get yourself closer to the life of your dreams? Who are you listening to when it comes to how you want to live life?

The older I get, the more I want to live a good life

Are you still listening to unfulfilled people who hide their pains and agony under the cloak of society’s approval?

Are you still listening to people who clearly live sad and unhappy lives but make sure this hypocritical society is pleased with them?

Are you taking relationship advice from unhappy women who treat sexually transmitted diseases monthly because they are married to disrespectful and cheating men?

Are you still considering taking back a man who has shown you many times that you can’t trust him and one who doesn’t have your interest at heart?

Are you still considering hopping buses to work because your aunty who eats beating for breakfast and dinner is telling you that buying a car will chase suitors away from you?

Are you still listening to people who tell you that women don’t need money because once they get married, their husbands start taking care of them?

Are you listening to people who believe that a woman’s education ends in the kitchen and are hounding you to go and get married at all costs?

Woman, who are you listening to? What you really want? How do you want to live your life? Do you want to live pleasing society or you want to live life on your own terms?
