“Being told I’m beautiful got into my head at the age of 5” – Bolanle Olukanni
Media personality, Bolanle Olukanni has narrated how being told she’s beautiful got into her head at the young age of 5.
Recalling how she became bothered when people rarely told her she was cute at the age of 7,
the media personality noted that it is easy to get sucked in and completely depend on physical looks for self-validation with the increasing obsession on physical looks.
Bolanle revealed that after she discovered that her older sisters had a lot more going for them asides from physical validation,
she started becoming more rounded as a person and was able to grow into her teenage years with not being overly obsessed about her looks.
However, she Wrote;
“With an increasingly growing obsession on physical looks, its easy to get sucked in and completely depend on your physical looks for self validation.
I told someone a story yesterday- When I was really young -like 5 years old…
I was the cutest thing. Lol yup. Everyone told me.
It was my identity -even as a 5 year old. I knew it .
Carried it on my head. So I got to 7 and of course I wasn’t a cute like a baby.
I remember thinking why don’t people tell me I am cute anymore??!!!!
