“Don’t Change To Fit In – MzDru Advises The Youths

Published

on

UK-born -Ghanaian based media entrepreneur, MzDru, on her birthday May 29, advised the youth to be content with themselves and not to change to fit in.

According to the radio/TV host, on her radio show ‘Live Breakfast Club (LBC)’ aired on ‘Live919FM’, the youth of today should not be influenced or try to change who they are to be accepted, fit in or to please people rather they should be themselves and appreciate who they are.

She said, “You should always be who you are, be yourself, and don’t change anything about yourself to fit in or be accepted. You should please yourself first and not them. Be YOU no matter what. MzDru is 100% herself and not ready to be influenced or be in any trend to please anyone. It’s nice to be liked, but bending over backward 24/7 to try to please others is definitely no way to live. Making actions or changing yourself based on pleasing people can lead to feelings of dissatisfaction and doubt, and can even cause you serious harm.”

MzDru whose tagline ‘Your Hostess with the Mostess’ added that “It is good to be inspired by other people’s personalities and their success but don’t aspire to be like them. Success is for everyone, you only need God’s guidance and hard work to get you up there.”

“There are friends that will push you outside of your comfort zone, and that’s okay- good, even. But acting solely on the desire to make someone like you, without clear-sighted consideration of your actions, is not the same thing as a healthy venture outside of your comfort zone, and it can give you trouble in the long run. Most of all, you won’t feel like yourself anymore.” She said.

On the radio, she added, “When it comes to matters of yourself, it’s not selfish or egotistical to put your own opinions first. You are allowed to like yourself even if it seems like nobody else does, and you never have to do anything you’re not comfortable with. The opinions and judgments of other people come second. In the very end, the one person that you have to spend the most time with is yourself, so make sure that you love who you are.”

THE CROWN: Netflix’s Biggest Shows Set Wrap Up After Its Fifth Season

Published

on

Earlier this year, it emerged that The Crown, one of Netflix’s biggest shows, would wrap up after its fifth season. But it has reversed course, as it’s returning to creator and writer Peter Morgan’s initial concept of a six-season run for the Royal Family drama.

“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” Morgan told Variety in a statement. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”

By the time it ends, The Crown will cover Queen Elizabeth II’s life up to the early 2000s. So, it won’t touch on more recent events, such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the Royal Family.

Filming on season four wrapped up just before the onset of COVID-19 lockdowns in the UK. That season is expected to hit Netflix later in 2020, a year or so after season three premiered. It’ll bring an end to Oscar-winner Olivia Colman’s two-season stint as Queen Elizabeth II, as Imelda Staunton is taking over the role for the final two seasons.
