Everyone should be allowed to grieve how they want –Toke Makinwa
Media girl and entrepreneur, Toke Makinwa gives our Friday motivational talk. And her talk today is targeted at those who judge others, even without having necessarily passed through the same experience.
In a post on her Instagram page on Friday, she wrote:
“We are all tested differently, broken differently, our scars fade differently and we heal differently.
“Everyone should be allowed to grieve how they want, when they want and however long they want to. Stop giving expiry dates to the pain you did not endure. If you cannot be kind, say nothing. It’s ok to be quiet, try it sometime, you won’t die.
“You don’t have to understand everyone’s journey or life’s choices but it’s your duty to respect it. Life visits us all at the end of the day and while you play judge let’s hope when it’s your turn, you remain standing to handle it half as strong or as perfect as you try to claim be. #fridayinspiration #Judgenot #Bekind.”
Many of her followers have since consented to the post, saying its better one be shoulder others can lean on. And not to crucify others for their wrong.
