DEAR YOUNG WOMAN

I’m scared for myself, scared at the many lies l have accepted as truth, scared at the truth l have dispersed as unrealistic, uncertain about what the society teaches me about being a woman, too much talks about feminism, and how that’s where my strength lies, so many teachings, and so many things l have to unlearn to become who God wants me to be in this falling-apart world. The truth bears no faults and we need to realise the lies gold-coated as truth and have them melt away from our hearts.

To every young lady reading, I want you to know that you are loved and adored, you are not perfect but you are perfect in the eyes of God. You will go through the motions, life will happen at unexpected times but these events do not define you, the society you live in does not define you, only one thing defines you, and that is your identity as a child of God.
