Orange peeled like a pregnant woman

There is no Prince Charming in this story.

There is no rescue boat coming.

No one is going to come and say: “I pick you.”

No one is coming.

Stop waiting to be picked.

Today’s popular show is not calling you.

CNN, Multi-choice or SABC is not going to scoop you up.

Stop waiting to get picked, waiting to be rescued.

Don’t play the victim.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

No one is coming to save you, you need to save yourself.

You are a survivor.

You have all the tools you need to survive.

You have all the permissions you need to push forward. [not that you needed permission to start with]

Continue to push forward.

Take a deep breath, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.

Don’t give up.

Reject the expectation to being picked, pick yourself.
