Ace Nigerian Comedian and weight loss expert, Lepacious Bose has really suffered from criticism right from when she was fat.
Recently, people also called her out for not being successful as her colleagues who ride big cars and live in mansions.
Reacting to critics, she took to Instagram to explain that luxurious cars and beautiful mansions do not define success.
Read her post below:
“I have learnt not to judge my success in life by the standard of the world but by my battles and struggles.
It’s interesting to see how people compare me with others, their luxurious cars, their beautiful mansions, their amazing family etc. People have said to me why are you not like so and so, why are you not doing this and that like so and so, why are you not on this show or why has this person not interviewed you or why were you not in this movie….. Hmmm
That is YOUR definition of success not mine.
“Oh I want to live in mansions and fly First Class trips round the world too don’t get me wrong: but I have walked through fire, I have lived rent-free in hell, I have known the indescribable emotional pain that even the closest people to Me can only imagine. I have performed in comedy shows, got standing ovations while I drove home in tears and pains. I have taken picture perfect pictures while my scars hurt through my smiles.
“For me simply surviving day by day is great success, rising above my personal pain is a super success.
Emi ni eni ti araye ti rope mio le da nkan Se, sugbon mo ri anu re gba Olu Orun, loba MI Se.
There is more to life than your bank account and people’s opinion lol, sometimes what you think you want so badly will not give you joy when you finally get it…. Trust me, I know this lol.
“The true definition of success is to find true happiness not based on what you have or what people think you have, not based on your spouse or your children, not because the world approves it but because deep within you there is peace, joy and tranquillity.
‘A friend asked me recently what do you want for your birthday, I looked through the list of my needs and smiled, you see I could not give an answer because what I want most in life is not in anyone’s power to give me, it’s a gift I have to find within me and give myself…. Even God won’t give me, that’s not how He works, He will lead me to find it, but finding it is my duty. …. YE THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH I WILL FEAR NO EVIL FOR THE LORD IS WITH ME!”
