MY STRABISMUS STORY
I was born with strabismus commonly known as “Half Past eye”. It affected my self image throughout my childhood. Never took pictures, in secondary school i found it difficult to answer questions because i felt my opinion doesnt count.
I fought battles within myself, kept on crying, sinking into chronic depression, i wanted to end my life on several occasions.
I never looked people in the eye because Nigerians are very stupid (pardon me) they always stare and ask “Are you looking at me?” Of course i am looking at YOU!!! If someone should ask me that now i have the best answer I asked God several times why he created me, I wished he allowed me to die in my mother’s womb…. My mom kept saying “STOP FEELING INFERIOR, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL”. I kept saying to myself “YOU ARE LYING TO ME”. I told myself several times that it is obvious i will never get married, who wants to look at his wife with such eyes.
i am on a whole new journey
My confidence boosted
I am the most beautiful girl in the world
I love myself for who am I and all that God has made me to be.
My self image isn’t just my looks, Its all I am and all that i possess.
I am a Rich man’s wife and who wouldnt want to marry me?? 🤩🤩🤩
I take pictures of my beautiful self and i have decided to be a voice of hope to others who are battling with self image….
