Munirat Antoinette Lecky, the BBNaija Reality Tv star, popularly known as AntoLecky has taken to her Instagram to say,
“Too blessed to be stressed
Protect your energy”
This post follow her lamentation on IG yesterday, concerning the mean and inhumane responses people receive on social media platforms without regards to the mental health of such people.
In her post earlier, she wrote;
“I’m just here to rant today…
I took this picture 2 years ago at a Mental Health Seminar in South Africa. While I’m grateful that 2 years later, people are becoming more mentally aware, it also seems like people have gotten meaner! What happened to us?? Someone commits suicide, another person will tweet “Be Kind” but you will scroll down their page and see them trolling people all day long. Make it make sense! Someone will ask their fellow human to report a blog posting lies and humans will say they rather continue reading the gossip. Someone will shave their hair for whatever reason and someone else will say they look like a cancer patient. Someone will get skinny, they must have AIDS. Someone will have big stomach, they must be pregnant. Where did this bad behavior come from?
I remember I wrote a post last year about my feelings and problems people close to me were dealing with and humans read it as I was depressed. Some even offered me money thinking I was broke. What is this type of thinking? Who is doing you people?
I don’t have the answers but I hope everyone can find happiness. The world around us doesn’t seem to be getting better so you must create happiness for yourself.
I would love to be a sounding board for anyone that wants to get things off their chest. My DM is open but you have to be very direct and specific. Saying “Hi” will not get you a response. I also won’t be able to answer everyone as my personal mental health is key, but I’ll continue to try and Be Kind to all.”
Her post was met with a lot of supportive comments and reactions from fans and fellow celebrities, some even sharing their own experiences of verbal and mental abuse.
