For the first time,
I'm sharing my story with the world.
I have spent my life being placed in many boxes, the first of which was the box of being a good Seychellois, Catholic girl, growing up in Seychelles in the 80s. The next box I was put in was because of my weight.
Growing up in a small society where everyone knows everyone, comes with its fair bit of social pressures and
We seem to be forever living our lives to please others; following the crowd and keeping up with peers, just so that we do not feel like an outcast.
These boxes that we are often put in are hard to escape from sometimes. We stay because we do not know how to step out of them. One unfailing thing I do know about boxes though is that they are all limiting to our truest nature.
