Lockdown Thoughts

Hey everyone. How are you? Hope you are in your houses and staying safe? It is really important that you do your best to protect yourself and other people by staying safe. I feel like this time has given us opportunity to think about a lot of things and we can learn a lot from our thoughts really. So this post I would be sharing some of the random thoughts I’ve had this lockdown.

I find this very personal and I’m quite scared to share it but then I will anyways. I started feeling very less confident at some point especially in my appearances, I mean I’ve had those thoughts but I’m usually very busy and in a lot of places doing a lot of things so I don’t exactly dwell on it, I just learned to bury it somehow in all the other things. So with the lot of time on my hands, and the different thoughts and with more time on social media it was not surprising that the thoughts began to dwell more. I believed in self-love too much to be having the thoughts so I really didn’t want to share it with people, but then I did share it with some of my friends and I had some sort of massive intervention because I really do have the best people around me.

This made me realize a couple of things to be honest and one of those things was that not everyone you think is fine, is actually fine. It is important you check up on your people, we are all really busy but you should make some effort at certain times to let them know that you are present and you care. Another thing is that God’s love brings about self-love. I mean when you recognize and you are fully aware of the fact God loves you, you certainly love yourself more because you realize that all the validation that you need from people is actually not necessary. You become aware of the fact that you only need to be loved by God and the amazing thing is that He does not need you to become a different person, He already loves you and really is all that matters.

One more thing before this post gets too long, please take care of your social media accounts. I have spent a lot of time online in the last couple of days and already have certain impressions of some people by some of their posts, tweets and stuff like that and that is how it is for everyone. So please, take care of it and do not misbehave.

Please stay safe everyone, it is really for our own good. Make the best out of this lockdown and remember you’ve got this because God’s got you always. Sending you all my love always <3

P.S. I’m not the one in the picture, I just think it is a beautiful picture.

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.
