Mel B on domestic violence
.
“FYI you may know my name but not my story, you maybe have heard what I've done but not what I've been through but soon you will. So in the mean time I'm just gonna text myself this as a reminder:
.
I may not have come from the perfect home but I was loved by my family,I may not be in the most favorable situation in life currently but trust me I soon will be by speaking my truth because I refuse to give up, shut up and just settle…
.
My heart and my intentions are pure and honest, and that alone makes me stand and fight for what I believe in. I’m focused, I work hard, I support and raise my 3 beautiful daughters all alone. Everyday, I show them how I'm handling Business and taking back my life bit by bit, wearing the goddess crown my babies gave me proudly
.
I know the cards I've been dealt with, I’ll change for the better and change indeed very very soon…I’m full of life coz I made it out alive, plus I'm learning how to love myself more and more each day so thank you to the ones that have stuck by me and believed in me even if I wasn't able to talk to any of you for 10 years. Guess what, I’m back now, stronger, healthier, and sillier than ever
.
No more hiding, no more shame, no more traumatizing pain. These last 7months have been incredible despite the death of my father, but he gave me just the strength I needed to stop living in utter fear…
.
I’ve stayed quiet for way way way too long, I want to empower and support women and give strength and hopefully pave the way even if it's just to a hand full of people to let them know “YOU CAN DO IT”. All alone, I walked away with nothing, just my kids, no one knew but it was the most terrifying but amazing walk I took
.
A: I never looked back
.
B: Never will I regret it
.
Just know you’re not alone, there are more people than you could ever imagine in the same boat right now and yes they are alive to tell their story. #stopdomesticviolence #getoutnowplease #nomoreshame #nomorehiding #reportyourabuser” - @officialmelb

  • Then someone will come here and say, why didn’t you talk for 10 years. If someone as beautiful and successful as she can be a victim of DV, anyone can be. Even CEOS can be victims. We need to stop painting the picture that a DV victim is one weak, defenceless house wife. Look around you. That woman you said hello to at work this morning after an impressive presentation, may be a victim of DV and she can’t speak up

  • Aww Mel

  • @dooneyskitchen true, we just need to look around us, the number of women going through DV is unimaginable......

  • I agree @dooneyskitchen many women just prefer to suffer in silence because they don't want people to talk ill of them. They don't know they are doing themselves more harm than good.

  • @lactaboost its not their fault. Alot of people victim shame or even use victims for their own selfish agendas...when they come out are they really given the support they need, not always. They are just talked about...we applaud everyone for sharing their story because they are giving others strength to seek help

  • Sorry Mel ..makeup covers a lot of pain 😞

  • My girl! 👏👏👏👏

  • I love her voice and accent

  • @dooneyskitchen because beauty has never meant courage.......it has often meant COMPROMISE, silence.....cos the world wants you to act in a particular way......she.was defenseless until she looked at her daughters.and decided a better life for them

  • @dooneyskitchen The whole truth. More importantly the abusers are our siblings, children, friends and we often times know and look the other way. We owe it to ourselves and our humanity to confront them. It’s never okay because the abuser is related to you. What if you were related to the abused? #breakthecycle #speakupforthevictimsevenifyouarenotavictim

  • @__detutuadedoyin 💕💕💕💕

  • Women are truly super hero's👏👏👑💖

Last week, I got to talk to a Nigerian billionaire as I was trying to convince him to do an interview for the blog
.
Even though we haven’t done an interview per se, he said some things to me when I asked him this question “how much money is enough?” He asked me…”Did you grow up with money?”
.
I shook my head and told him a funny story about my childhood. He seemed to find it interesting so he asked me “When were you the happiest? When you were living poorly or now that you have made something out of yourself?”
.
Hmmmm… This was a tough question. I was a child, I was more carefree, I had no serious thoughts or major problems. I just wanted to wear short dresses and play downstairs with my neighbours. The biggest problem I had growing up was how fast my boobies were growing when they decided to sprout. “I don’t think I was happy being poor but I was content” I responded after giving it some thought
.
“For someone at my stage, no amount is enough. The truth is making money has now become a habit, habit borne out of fear that anything can happen. You're now working to sustain your net-worth. Know this, when you have all the money that I have, being rich finally disappoints you. After you’ve opened trust fund for your children and you’ve done everything you’ve dreamed of, you get disappointed”
.
Okay… What was this man saying?
.
It was as if he read my thoughts
.
“Because money cannot buy the most important things. I have tried but I'm disappointed that with all of these, I still can’t buy life, love, self-worth, I can’t control some situations I badly want to control. Even with billions, you do not have absolute power unlike what people think”
.
I cut in “So you’re saying a billionaire’s life is not all that? People shouldn’t aspire to be mega rich?”
.
“No, I didn’t say that. Aspire to be a billionaire, just be ready to get disappointed that it’s not all you thought it would be”
.
Lo.Ba.Tan. O. (No more words)
.
How much money is enough for you?

I can’t sleep in one position and wake up in that same position. I move around like a mother of the bride during her wedding. I have no recollection though. I sleep well. Hehehehe

Rebecca is diagnosed with Ichthyosis, a condition that makes her skin scaly. Other children call her a "monster" and are afraid to get close.
Rebecca wants other kids to understand that Ichthyosis is not contagious so they will play basketball with her .

“In 1982, I was in a mountain climbing accident and the result was that I suffered frostbite to my legs and after months of efforts my medical team was forced to amputate both my biological limbs
.
After the accident, I returned to to the wall and was climbing even better than I had achieved prior to the accident with my biological limbs. This was inspirational for me, as I realized the extraordinary capacity of technology to repair, to rehabilitate to even extend human expression
.
There is such a great power and importance to believe. If you believe deeply in something, you can make it so. You can materialize it in the world. So, I had deep faith that I would climb again, and I did. I had a deep believe that I would design bionic limbs to restore normal walking patterns and I did. These things took many many years of thoughts and efforts and struggle but I believed. I kept matching, I just kept working and I decided in my body and mind to NEVER STOP until it was so, and IT WAS SO....” - Hugh Miller Herr, HOD Biomechatronics group, MIT

‪“Create ministry of livestock” What’s wrong with this request? Nothing. . .The ministry of Agriculture is too busy, livestock has to be given their own office. This makes a whole lot of sense. let’s add this to the numerous non-functioning agencies in Nigeria. Shall we?
.
Dear Nigerians, please don’t forget to quote me when leaders of Miyetti Allah are given the ministry of livestock to run. As power and billions were handed over to Asari Dokubo and his crew, so will Miyetti reign supreme and make money from the misfortune of many
.
‪Since we all can decide which ministry can be formed, I hereby tender my own suggestions‬:
.
-Ministry of my personal feelings
-Military of common sense
-Ministry of Rice (Because we can’t eat meat without rice
.

Hurry, add your own ministry, I shall be submitting this list to the president in a couple of hours
