I used to be advised I used to be brief and thick ( it sounds worse in Yoruba).. I used to be additionally requested why i seemed like my dad. Why wasn’t I mild skinned like my mom? So many questions… all someway directed at making me subconsciously query the way in which I seemed. Over time.. I made a decision to disregard or compartmentalize these insecurities. I ignored the truth that I used to be considerably unrecognizable in pictures or much less favored for sure alternatives. I used to be by no means known as fairly as a lot as I can keep in mind. I satisfied myself that I used to be odd. Thank God for my sense of humour as a result of I allowed all of it mud off my shoulders by joking about it.
