We all had various dreams and aspirations of what we wanted to be when we were kids but most of us due to unforseen circumstances choose different paths of careers. The same applies to any other person you meet in life and actress Benedicta Gafah is no exception as she has shared some touching message on her instagram page.
According to Empress as she prides herself, when she was a kid, she wanted to be a model and would even starve herself sometimes just to have a perfect body. The actress indicated that she hated herself very much because her body size could not make her dream of becoming the next biggest model to come true.
Growing up I always wanted to be a model, so much so that I literally used to starve in order to lose weight. I wanted to be a size 8 at all cost and I went to great lengths in a bid to achieve that dream. I hated myself so much, especially my plumpy body. There were many times I felt my body was just being “stubborn” and preventing me from becoming great???. But I eventually had to accept myself and the fact that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. And that one could be size 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and so on and still look beautiful, especially when it is coupled with a beautiful heart and a positive mindset. Your pretty face and beautiful body could easily attract people to you but your good heart and character will endear you to people and allow them to enjoy your company, At one point in time or the other, we may feel a bit insecure about certain things in our life or certain parts of our body but guess what, that is what makes us all unique and beautiful in our own special way. We are created in the image and likeness of God So be beautiful; be you!. ? @iamphylx
