    There’s no greater joy than accepting yourself.
    If it comes with love, good and fine.
    If it doesn’t, please just fucking accept yourself already.
    You’d feel loads better

    Pinky butter cup.
    This new month I wish you nothing but joy.
    You’ll be the first Nigerian to get Dan Brown’s new book (he is my favorite writer, but I’ll give the honour to you)
    Sense8 will finally agree to your proposal (😢 it hurts considering how much I love you, but I am willing to let you go, to find the one you truly love)
    And that your shelf will be filled up with over 2 thousands books, why wait till you’re forty? Yes?

    First the struggle, then the acceptance. The journey of most a gay man. Unfortunately not everyone gets to the point where they “believe Mark”.
    Nice work, Atanda

    Nicely written. Acceptance is a journey and with perseverance it will be attained. I wish there was a way to reach out to the lost and confused men, so many lives could be saved.

    Beautiful. Beautiful piece to start a new month.
    Suicide is never the answer. You didn’t solve anything, you simply lost yourself.

    Thank you, Atanda.

    Nobody should ever be made to feel less than the awesome special beauty they truly are. I dislike bullies. I remember trashing one or two who tried to take a ride on my friends in secondary school. The thought of injustice alone angers me deeply. Everyone deserves to be happy and nobody deserves to be alone

    This was so sweet and relatable. Bookmarking it so I’d use it for some of my future coming out sessions.

    Nice one! I have been bullied severally while growing up, but I have never contemplated suicide… I guess that’s the more reason why I overlook homophobia, I feel most people won’t understand what I am going through, so I rather not give them the chance to hurt me. Love yourself, the world is not a perfect place and not everyone is going to be nice to you. Live, be happy and wait for your last breath. Life is a dream.
