For those who cares about us, they always help us make informed decisions about ourselves and about life. Personally I do accept how an angry child I am. I do believe it is because I have been broken many times and lived through so much dissapintments. One thing I learned even deeply; no one can help you if you don't have enough energy to help yourself first. You must first start by wanting help, accepting to be helped and understanding the reality that everything you say might come back to hurt you if they are not carefully reversed to you in a way that is more building. I have been told many times that I am not pretty; that I am ugly etc. These things can make a broken soul like mine believe life but the truth is deeper than just looks or a skin condition. If you can't find beauty then you may as well create it yourself. It's that simple and highly recommended. Fear of starting or failure can as well play apart. Imperfect humans like me have so much battles to fight inside. Sometimes it gets so deep that tears and bursting out is what eases the situation. It's OK to cry, to hurt, to be broken, to be imperfect, to lose everything in life, to watch some promises go unfulfilled. That's just life mama. What I need you to understand my children of the world is that, " IT IS THROUGH THE CRACKS THAT LIGHT GETS INTO US. I am always deeply hurting inside. The only way to ease it is to support other people's craft. To lose everything so that others may win a battle no one is willing to stand up for. It is called being selfless; but be very careful also, if you keep destroying yourself for others then you might as well carry the baggage of a broken vessel. You are human and not God. Just learn your purpose and limits so that you first take care of yourself. I might not be a good example for your children but that doesn't mean that your family can't learn a thing from me; even broken vases creates imperfectly perfect art. It's all in the craft darling.! I love you those few who honestly love me but above all, I extend deep gratitude. ! Xo Xo Toy Toy baby – Kill it with love. #letoyajohnstone Hair by @poshpalaceofficial

With the rise of FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT, every young person and adults who aught to give us directions have chosen to twist the narrative and show us what social media is adaptable to rather than the reality.! I am not judging people for what they do; that's their own life. What I know is my true honest self. That deep honesty that pierces normalcy. The world today will show you @equinox Hotel views and all beautiful amazing magical scenarios because they got the opportunity to be there; which is a great thing to do, but again, after all the traveling has been done we all go home. Real true home. This is how my home is. I took this photo just to show the world who I am honestly. You don't want to wake up one day and the media thinks that you are a shining diamond that has been old money all your life. In my life this has been home for several decades. Don't be fooled by my free done hair, perfect nails, shining legs etc that you see me post here on social media. I can't even afford a single service in those high end places. Someone just chose to give me a treat because of kindness in their heart. Personally as Letoya Johnstone , I am so broke. Not even broke but extremely broke. My bank account reads zero ( 0) . It's because I am living below a dollar literally. Sometimes you would even wish that someone can give you that money they are using to buy you expensive alcohol or food but again, you can't teach people how they spend their money. It is OK to lack, to be courageous to admit that you are poor. It costs nothing. Personally I came from nothing completely. That house up there is an incredible improvement. If @naomi , @edward_enninful , @voguemagazine Or @itsn.a.n.c.y , @officialjanetmbugua etc could ask me to take them home in Homa-Bay; this is where I will take them. This is home. It is by doing the right thing and owning who you are that makes you who you are. Some of us are surviving in Nairobi because we are looking for greener pastures. It is what young and old people do unless you are some @oprah Winfrey. Coming from poverty is normal . When they flaunt theirs, I flaunt this house. It's what I have.!
