Academics are not the end of the world. You are not competing with anybody. You are just born to shine, not to compete with anybody except yourself. Your life is not worth a degree. Your happiness is not worth a degree. There is no time attached to what God wants you to be or who *you* want to be. Take it easy. We love you not only because of your intelligence, but because you are *you*. Take a deep breath. Go to sleep. I love you.
my father, after i called him at 1am sobbing from exhaustion and stress and anxiety. best if read in a broad igbo accent :)
i’d been feeling the emotional load of school and other shit that had just drained me, so i was up crying too hard to sleep and feeling that crushing loneliness. so i called my father.
Girl I Love your daddy for his words and I Love you, because you are you. Don’t let that institution fuck with your Soul. #BlackgirlsarefromtheFuture.
Yagazie and you have an amazing dad :’D
What he said is relevant to me too now
