Popular Nigerian comedian Richard Ayodeji Makun better known as AY in a recent post on social media urged his colleagues to stop seeking validation from social media.
Comedian AY made this known via his official Twitter handle today, January 9th, 2020 as he tells his colleagues not to leave fake lives.
He added that no matter the truth and lies those fans that will stay with them will still stay as this will save them from depression and also maintain their mental health.
Comedian AY added that celebrities need to set boundaries and be mindful of what they share or partake online.
He tweeted, “It’s time to stop seeking validation from social media. No matter d truth or lies about u or your personality, those who love u will still love u. Save yourself from depression, protect your mental health. Connect, spend time, & build relationships with real people in your life.”
He added, We need to set boundaries and be mindful of what we share or partake on social media. Balance is key.This is a place where people fly with available information.
Bloggers will forever go with any information that brings them relevance and trends. There is no respect or empathy. People seem to think the more negative positions they take, the more relevant they become.
Some have become judges in issues they know little about and have through bad comments and lack of empathy, sent many to their graves. The search for validation is most often unhealthy because it gives people, especially strangers, too much power in determining one’s self-worth.” See his post below;

apostle_d_derick07: Good morning everyone… Let’s pray… Please raise your right hand up to pray this prayer this morning wherever you are…. Say Lord. As I step out this morning, I move from glory to glory, from blessings to blessings, from progress to double progress. God, sometimes, life gets me down and I find it hard to see things to be thankful for, but as I go out today, I shall go in peace and return back with testimony. Father Lord, as I go out this morning, separate me from bad influences, evil counselor, wicked personality. Oh God, You are so good. You are faithful and gracious and You have blessed me beyond measure. I come before You today to make my day glorious and the people you have ordained to help me to remember me, This is what we ask for through Jesus Christ our lord, Amen 🙏.
parishafrica: Truth is, we are our own tomorrow and must protect our sanity. And when you are dead, you go down alone. We don’t need validation from humans, we only need validation from ourselves. Nobody is completely innocent, none.
