We ask three women the experiences that changed their perspective to life and made them braver.
“I lost my dad at a time I needed him the most. I was going through a very rough relationship that was emotionally and verbally abusive. I had lost every confidence in me. I was no better than a piece of rumpled paper. My father was the only one who knew how to re-affirm me. And just when I was trying to understand how low I had sunk and how important it is to move away from my fiancé and the toxicity that wraps itself as love, my father was gone. It was then I knew how BRAVE I could be. I realized death was the worst that could happen, and if it did, at least I would be with my dad. So with that mindset, I picked myself up from misery, left the relationship for good and paved my own happiness. It hasn’t been easy, but I salute myself for being brave to move away from what tried to destroy me.” – Ejiro
“Losing weight has been the most traumatizing experience of my life. Anything I put in my mouth makes me fat. I see people eat like gluttons and add zero weight, I get jealous. I know how tough it is to progress in life when you struggle with your weight. I am shy, introverted and unable to put myself out there because people judge harshly. I’ve been on so many diet plan and exercises and nothing really works long term, it was later I decided I would have to love myself and my body regardless. If you have nothing to lose, you stop being afraid of losing anything. I heard that somewhere and I decided to make that my motto. I soaked myself in inspiring stories of plus-size people, and I found my own mojo. I got BRAVER because I decided not to let my weight or people’s unsolicited opinions and judgments stop me from living and enjoying life. I also signed up with a nutritionist because I will never give up on myself. Cheers to being braver than I ever imagined I could be.” – Perpetua
“Standing up to my very close-knit clique was the BRAVEST thing I have ever done, and once I was able to do it and the sky did not fall, I realized I was willingly part of a delusional group for so long because I was too afraid to speak up. I just couldn’t take the hypocrisy anymore – the constant mockery of others, and the pretentious relationship we all shared. One day, they were gossiping about someone we know and it was so horrible, I decided it was time to distance myself from them, but before I did I made them realize how incurably ridiculous they are to attempt to remove the speck in someone else’s eye while they all go blind. I am better off without such people in my life, and I really should have done that sooner.” – Oluchi

Being a victim of Dyslexia and still full of ideas, infact being at the top has always been the bravest thing, God has really helped me!!

I face tasks and sort them out easily!!
