Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde says she owes who she is today to her younger self.
She disclosed this in an Instagram post titled #Lettertoayoungerme.
Referring to her younger self as her woman crush Wednesday (WCW), Jalade-Ekeinde said she had delayed the “self-acknowledgement” because “I thought it was narcissistic”.
According to her, she was young, confused sweet, but was not reckless, available and never wandered.
She also said whenever she is weak, she looks back and draws strength from the young girl she was.
“My #Wcw . Never did this cause I thought it was narcissistic but today I will. It’s Okay,” Jalade-Ekeinde said.
“This lady right here … It’s crazy how you sometimes look back and see things differently isn’t it? You sometimes wish someone showed you then clearly what you now see today.
“Dear lady in this picture, I don’t know how you did it, but thanks. Thanks for laying a good foundation that I enjoy today. Thanks for being so strong, so resilient, so focused.
“You were young but not reckless, sweet but not available, sometimes confused but never wandered. You had your own battles but fought them with grace… and won.
“Even today, when I feel weak, I look at you and draw strength from you… it’s crazy! Thank you.”
