This week I’ve had my fair share of being cyber bullied and being Body shamed. I was and still am overwhelmed at the fact that most of the bullying comes from Women. And it hurt! It still does! Yes I am fat , and I’m nowhere near perfect . I have flaws like everyone else, I don’t look like my pictures sometimes and I have stretch marks (a whole lot of them) … I am only as human as the rest of you. I realize that not everyone is going to like how I look, what i wear and how I speak. But that has absolutely nothing to do with me … I’m not here to move according to people’s expectations, how they want me to be, how they want me to sound or look. I’m here for my damn self….and THAT has absolutely EVERYTHING to do with ME! So suck it the fuck up…. Ga ke je kwa mmao!!!
