Ladies: Be More!
Note: Contains disturbing information. Reader discretion is advised.
I’m not quite sure how to start this post but I’ll just write and let it flow. Yesterday, I saw a video on someone’s whatsapp status that left me worried and sad. I could only ask why but got no answer.
The video was that of a young naked lady on all fours while a dog was having sex with her. I felt so much sorrow in my soul. Was this done willingly? Is it that she drugged? I wish I knew for sure but I didn’t. It lay in my head like a plague. Why? I couldn’t help but ask why.
I read a story a few months ago. It was one that was sent to a psychology expert by an orphaned lady who was in the university at the time. She happened to be in a dilemma and wanted some advice.
In her story, she admitted that she was lured by some friends who told her that she could get out of poverty by sleeping with dogs. On her first encounter she was paid #3m (a little over $8,000) but it turned out that wouldn’t be the last time as she developed strong sexual urges for dogs and dogs only. It was such as sad story.
Sometimes, ladies go into such acts because of poverty but should that even be an option? For some others, it’s nothing more than greed. They want to live for the gram and show off but really, for how long can they keep up?
The pathetic aspect of the whole thing is that the material things they so struggle to acquire, will shortly be outdated. I remember my first year in school, there was this girl who slept with her sugar daddy for a BlackBerry bold 1. She was the first in the school to have that phone to the best of my knowledge. Fast forward two years later or there about, bold 4 along with the iphone became the in thing among students. Bold 1 became outdated. So, what had she gained?
These days, ladies sleep around just to get a few material things to flaunt for a few moments of fame. The worst are those who twerk naked on IG just for likes and popularity. How did we get here?
If one is so keen about getting recognition, why not let it be for something meaningful, inspiring and innovative? Make your own money through your hard work and integrity. There’s something about beating your chest and saying to yourself: “I did this sh*t by myself.” It is empowering. It is inspiring and it earns you respect.
I wasn’t born with a silver spoon. I know what suffering means. I have experienced severe hunger. I understand what it means to lack but I kept looking beyond that phase. I always reminded myself of my worth. I kept telling myself that that was just a phase, better things were ahead.
Today, I am grateful for every hardship I faced because it brought me to this moment. It made me look at life differently. It made me more compassionate. I’m not yet there but I keep striving. There has got to be more to offer because you are more.
Ladies, you are more than those naked twerks. You are more than sleeping around with dogs and men for money. There’s no need to steal either. You are more than the fake life you’re living. There’s a million opportunities out there but you need to discover who you truly are first— you need to start from within. You need to put your sh*t together. Stop being desperate. Don’t be greedy.
It’s not to late to start over. Your past is your past but only you can determine what it’s going to be from here — from now. Ladies, you are more. Be more.
About Ladies: Be More
This post isn’t to put down anyone but to encourage ladies around the world to stop settling for less. We have so much wielded in us— there’s so much untapped potential. We are more than the obstacles we face, than the demeaning things we subject ourselves to because of some certain situations. We are more. We need to be more. We owe it to ourselves to be more.
