Being independent doesn’t mean I do not need love – Actress, Dayo Amusa
Actress, Dayo Amusa has given insight into what she loves about being independent. To her, she is independent because she takes responsibility for her life.
In a post on Instagram, she stated that though she can stand on her own, it doesn’t mean she does not need love, neither does she like going home alone.
She added that she still wants to be protected and covered with the assurance that everything is going to be okay.
“I am independent because I take responsibility for my life. I refuse to play the blame game on anyone or make other people scapegoats for my failures. I do not allow the culture or religion to define me. Just because I am a woman doesn’t mean I am less than a man. Just because my skin may be darker or lighter than someone else’s doesn’t make me any less beautiful.
“I am empowered to choose my companions, belief system & standards, based on what I feel is right for me. I can stand on my own if need be, but I do not boast about it or make others feel small just because they can’t. Being independent doesn’t mean I do not need love. It doesn’t mean I like going home alone. “It doesn’t mean I hate men or that I won’t submit. It doesn’t mean I will stop being feminine, sexy & ladylike. I still want to be cared for & pampered by my partner. I desire to have doors opened & be treated for dinner. I still want to be protected & covered with the assurance that everything is going to be okay. YES, I Love my independency.”
