SUPPORT SYSTEM LIKE BRAS
Hello my people, it seems that I am getting serious. Showing up the second time this month, to Jesus be my glory. Hanyway, when I thought about support systems I immediately thought about bras. Which is odd because I do not like bras, yes I am in the ‘let the titties be free’ association 😛 . If you are wondering why bras, I am here to inform that this post has absolutely nothing to do with bras just thought it would be a good title, so take it like that.
Now to the koko of this post. I grew up knowing support systems were important but I didn’t know know #jooget. As I got older I realized that I was and still am an acquired taste. A level of awareness has been at the back of my mind that I would most likely not have many friends. I have known that I would be the extrovert with few friends which I have made my peace with a long time ago.
So from a very young age I have found a way to master the blend of social interaction with solitude. Unfortunately I became too comfortable in the solitude. I am seriously not trying to sound like all these internet quotes that are promoting loneliness in the name of self sufficiency( I think I just broke a table, oops) 😯 .
Well what jolted me out of this dysfunctional comfort was when life decided to turn my life into to a public toilet when I was in Jss3. The summary of the story is that my house mistress at that time and ‘her babies’ decided to make my life worse than hell. It was a strange time that I definitely didn’t handle well. It was then that I realized no matter how ‘strong’ you are life would find a way to humble you without community.
‘ A single broom stick can be easily broken, while sticks of broom in a group are harder to be destroyed’. If you are wondering who said that Mrs Ibukun Ekisola did, you are welcome 🙂 . I have realized that support system is a way of maintaining sanity in this very crazy world. With that being said make sure you curate people that are loyal but are also honest. People that have empathy,are reliable , want the best for you and most importantly have sense ❗ . I am especially proud of my support system that spans across different ages which include both family and friends. Shout out to my support system. On this note I end with; HAVE A STURDY SUPPORT SYSTEM.
