“Pick up your self esteem today, you’ve left it lying on the floor too long” ~Toke Makinwa

Toke Makinwa, a popular Nigerian media personality, took to social media yesterday to share some very insightful words. The successful Vlogger and award winning multi-media personality, (Radio,TV and Youtube), encouraged people to pick up their self esteem. Here is what she had to say:

“If someone does not know your worth, stop trying to explain it to them they will never get it. Doesn’t mean that they are bad people, you are just not their cup often and that’s Ok! Life is short, too short to spend it forming things that are not meant to be. Remember that where the purpose of a this is unknown, abuse is inevitable. Pick up your self esteem today, you’ve left it lying on the floor for too long. Let go of those limitations. You can turn it around, you can start again. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve waited, don’t worry about how you will begin again. It is all in the mind. The day you decide you don’t want to feel the weight anymore is the beginning of a new life. A life free of waiting on someone to see your value. You are all you’ve got. Keep rising.”
