Who are “your people”?

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’m apologizing for ghosting all these weeks, I really wanted to be here but I was so overwhelmed with school work and a whole lot of extracurricular activities. It’s so good to finally see that the hard work actually did pay off.

It’s really important to have people that can identify as ” your people ” because you know they will always have your back and look out for you. It’s actually a really beautiful thing.

I’ve been in school for most of the time this year and I can’t but give credit to my friends for helping me get through the whole ‘’madness’’, and in the real sense we helped one another get through it. It’s really beautiful to have people to share your experiences with because the point is to help one another actually.

I remember one day after class, I was extremely tired and I was crying because I needed to express all that emotion somehow and my friend walked up to me and asked me to do what makes me happy lol. He probably didn’t know how important it was for me to hear that at that moment because I immediately went to get myself ice cream (ice cream makes me extremely happy, take note) and I actually felt better, if he had not showed up I probably would have still been sulking rather than changing the things I can which is making myself feel better.

Sometimes all you need is to be in the company of the people that you love to actually make you realize the things that matter. My friends make want to be a better person because they are around me and can actually identify the things I need to work on. A lot of times we just need to be present and live in the moment to realize that there are a lot of people around you who love you and actually care.

And before I forget, how’s this imposed holiday going for everyone? I’m discovering my new talents, I’m reading the books in the Harry Potter series all over again and binge watching Nigerian movies on Netflix. But in all honesty, my friends have been essential in making sure that boredom has not finished me lol. I’ve been playing games, trying to reach out to old friends and make new friends and also do everything I’ve always said I didn’t have time for. But make sure you try to safe and read up on the WHO and NCDC facts on how to protect yourself and also people that you love during this period and spread facts not fear!

One last thing I want to say is that it’s not only enough to have a support system but also be part of someone’s support system. And don’t forget that everyone deserves a measure of love. Sending you love and light this period and please be safe! Till next time

P.S- I had to just share these pictures

My people!!!

My name is Toyosi Adeniran (actually “Adeniran Ifeoluwatoyosi Abigail” which is quite long lol ) and just call me “TheToyosiAdeniran” because I feel like the ‘the’ gives it this catch and makes it seem like it’s just one name. You know the way some people say they are something by day and another thing by night, well I am a medical student everyday (both day and night). I am also an aspiring public speaker and very passionate about people knowing their rights and having those rights protected. And above all, I am a Christian and my faith is very important to me.
