Renowned Nigerian transvestite, Denrele Edun, has shared a heartfelt note as he celebrates his 38th birthday on Thursday, June 13th.
The popular media personality, Denrele wrote one of the most self-introspective emotional notes on his Instagram page.
He also shared new photos on his social media handle to mark the special day.
Read what he wrote:
I can’t believe you’re 38!
F***ing eight years older than a 30-year old.
TWENTY years older than your 18-year-old self. You’re freaking out!
But, you know what?
You’re also 38-years young.
I mean, the moment you hit 30, you stopped counting right? Wake up and smell the frigging Coffee!
Denrele, you no dey hear the word!
About time you learnt that just because you haven’t been loved in the way you deserve, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve it.
That just because some people found it hard to love you doesn’t mean you’re not easy to love.
Love yourself so much that you don’t feel the wanting from loneliness.
Love yourself so much it doesn’t matter who broke your heart in the past or who breaks your heart next. Love yourself so much you become complete. Love yourself so much you stop accepting anything less than what you need.
Love yourself so much you stop accepting any less even from yourself.
Look in the mirror. The person you see standing in front of you is the love of your life. Feed him just as much as you’ve fed the mouths who bit chunks out of you. Find the places from which they did, kiss them and let them heal.
Walk away from situations that make you unhappy. Anything or anyone that steals your lighter energy has no business being in your life.
Stop putting yourself down and selling yourself short. Speak to yourself in a kinder voice. You have the whole world inside of you.
Be grateful for your accomplishments and work for those you still yearn for. You got this. This year, tune out the voice that says you can’t.
Take care of yourself. No one else will do it for you.
No one else can do it better.
Think about the curly-haired, suffering little troublesome kid you once were. What would he say to you today?
What were the things he always wanted to have?
Would you treat him like you treat yourself now?
Do what makes you happy. It’s as simple as that.
Your life has a purpose. Your story is important. Your dreams count. Your voice matters. Love yourself. Value yourself. Be yourself. The world needs you!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGELESS KID!”
