Owo mi (my person), how are you this evening?
Today has been one of my most eventful days. First, I had a class for 7:30am and I woke later than expected, so I flunked it. Then some other things I planned to do didn’t come off so well. But then, here I am. What can I say? Lol.
When I first committed to writing to you daily, I didn’t expect perfection. No. Everytime I come here, I unmask. I don’t hold back.
It’s my safe space; this place we share. I write for you and I write for me. So, last night, I was caught up in some things and rushed here to make a post. Omo. Lol. When I think of that post ehn? My laughter comes in fits. Let’s not even talk about it. I may take it down, sha.
And today, I’m writing about something very dear to me and dreaded too—PDAs.
Public displays of affection have always been a dread to me. Maybe because all my life I’ve grown up not seeing my parents do it, and so, it’s kinda the sacred cow? Or maybe because I grew to believe that if I showed love for someone they could be taken away from me? (Talk about insecurities that we never know exist). But for whatever silly reason, I am always a tad scared of PDAs.
Today, I was confronted with that fear again. And no, I have not overcome it. But, I will.
This is me saying to Hope Obeten who reads all my mails and shares them, that I love you.
To Michael Ansah, who leaves a reply on every single mail, I Iove you.
To Joseph Ebudgu, who ensures I post my mails when necessary, I love you.
To Bitura-Ojo, my doppelganger, who calls me from anywhere in the world to give me an hour long review, I love you.
To Osinachi, who reposts blog links, I love you.
To Mong, whose reviews are gold, I love you.
To Destiny Aniyom that carries my matter on her head, I love you.
To my sister, Maddx, who made me begin his journey, I love you.
To every one who reads this mail, to Blessing Effiong, that I love, to Michael Etim that I love and honor, to you whose name I don’t know, to the 100 plus subscribers, I love you.
I wrote tonight to remind you, that love is healthy. And, I love you.
Your GJ. 💜
