Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, says showing off weight loss, weight gain, doing plastic surgery to accentuate parts of the body, getting married, and showing off every achievement and milestone on social media cannot make anyone happy.
He made this known via his Instagram page on Sunday, May 26, 2019, where he stated that, trying to get validation on social media over personal achievements on social media doesn’t really make anyone happy. He went on to reveal that people who are secured in themselves do not post or share their wealth on social media.
“Having been there and done that, I can tell you for free that weight loss, weight gain, butt enlargement, boob lift, marriage, buying/building your own house, having kids, wearing expensive clothes and shoes CANNOT make you truly happy. Mostly, the things we do to show others we are beautiful, made, tough and/or connected are things that magnify our insecurities. A man who is secure in himself has no urge to flaunt wealth, I’m yet to see Alh. Dangote posts a picture of his “machines” or of him “chilling in his private jet”.
“A woman who is secure in her looks has no urge to go under the knife for enhancement, think Michelle Obama. True happiness comes from knowing who you are (self-discovery) and loving yourself, “even though…” Anyone who can live without caring about the validation of others is the one who has found true happiness.✌🏽Outfit: @mudiafrica01 @mudiafrica #RMDSaysSo #SelfDiscovery #SelfValidation #SelfLove,” he wrote.
