A Nigerian blogger, Lizzy, who became confined to a wheel chair following a terrible accident in 2008 has shared how her now husband asked her out a few weeks before the accident but she “curved” him.
He asked her out again in 2009 despite her condition and this time, she agreed. She went on to add that her acceptance was not because she felt she did not have a choice.
Sharing the above photo, she wrote below:
DOUBLE #TBT because I feel like it. I usually don’t post #PreWheelchair #Throwbacks because it naturally makes people want to “pity” me and I am not one for pity, but today I said “ehhh” 😊. In 2008, I was curving #LeBoo. Our father in heaven forgave me and gave me a second chance in 2009 when LeBoo asked me to be his girlfriend again and we officially started dating. The car accident that left me with a #SpinalCordInjury happened a few weeks after we took the photos in 2008. In case you are doing FBI things and trying to decode whether I started dating him because I felt like “I had no choice”, #SMH #STOPIT, but I feel you sha, so just this one time only, you can feel free to insinuate your theory jokingly because even I suspected myself. 😂😂 One of the hardest decision of my life was choosing to date this awesome man because I felt it was not fair to give him what the devil tried to make me believe was not my “whole self” after the #SCI. We were teenagers and I knew that saying yes to be his girlfriend would eventually lead to marriage because he was a young man of God who had principles I wasn’t ready to commit to at the time. However, Le boo was persistent and I grew up from my childish ways. I got closer to God and discovered I was still whole and a blessing to the world and any man who wanted to be with me.
I will forever credit my near death experience for so much of my emotional and spiritual growth but please note that YOU don’t have to nearly die to receive sense. 🙈😂 This is just a throwback to acknowledge that it’s really not my business if the chicken came before the egg, or if the egg came before the chicken. I’m just very happy that I fell in love with and married this lovely handsome man who didn’t give up on me.
