I have been in a few situations now where someone is being disrespectful to another human being but because the person supposedly has “money”, other people tell the disrespected to , ‘be quiet and get over it’. I hear, “Who are you?! Do you know who so and so is?!”- as if money makes it okay to be an asshole. It also shows just how inferior people feel and just how little they value themselves. It really should not be that way. A persons money does not determine their worth in any way shape or form to me. It doesn’t matter if a person doesn’t have one cent to their name, that doesn’t make them less than and it gives you no right to disrespect them. I absolutely do not have an inferiority complex. So if you ask who I am, I will tell you.
I am Akhatesoafiesokere.
First and only of my name.
I am worthy of respect, love, happiness and the finest life the universe has to offer.
I determine my worth.
Not you, not money, not society’s standards.
I AM THAT I AM.
71 soul lessons that brought me peace these past two years:-
The Universe is God and God is the Universe.
God is a genderless force that lives within us all. Not an angry white bearded human being that sits in the sky.
But if we are being super technical. The Energy of the universe is feminine, Mother Nature, Mother Earth – the only creative force is the Divine feminine. So technically the all encompassing force that is The Most High is undeniably the Divine Feminine.
Women are actually amazing beings whose natural way of life is not to be restricted and oppressed like they have tried to make us believe.
Our bodies must be embraced and not shamed or despised under the guise of “sacredness”.

My skin adores olive and coconut oil.
Please don’t chase after men or even friends. And certainly do not change your self to please them.
People will come and go- it’s a part of life. Let them go when it’s time for them to go. Trying to force them to stay in your life is what causes toxicity.
Figure out who you are, what you like, and those who are for you will see the beauty and gravitate towards you.
Remember only YOU have to see your beauty. So long as you see it no one else matters. You are with yourself 24/7- make sure your inner voice is kind to yourself not just others.
All the time you put into caring what others think or trying to please others should be spent on YOURSELF. How do you feel? Are you looking after your needs?

Everybody is fighting their own demons.
Peoples reactions are always reflective of them- NOT you.
Do not blame yourself for the behaviour of others.
Stop over explaining when the answer is no.
Stop making up elaborate excuses as to why you can’t do something when really you just don’t want too. Just say no.
If people get offended let them.
It’s a reflection of their minds not your worth.
You must always do what is best for you.
Nobody owes you anything and you do not owe anybody anything.
You are not entitled to peoples help or time.

Don’t let people project their ideals onto you.
Don’t let people guilt trip you into doing what’s best for them instead of for your self.
Set unapologetic boundaries and sit firmly on your throne.
And I’ll end with this powerful quote from Audre Loudre that I truly embodied this year:-
“if I did not define myself for myself, i would be crunched into other peoples fantasies of me and eaten alive”.
🥂 to knowing ourselves, loving ourselves and living our truth.
