Engaged with happiness

There seems to be a bad case of body shaming going around on the Internet lately, but just because some are suffering from a lack of body positivity doesn’t mean that others aren’t willing to give them a healthy dose.

Cue Mzznaki Tetteh, a nurse from Ghana who recently posted her engagement photos with fianceé Kojo on her Instagram account. Although she is excited for her quickly-approaching big day (June 25, to be exact), some trolls decided to rain on her parade by posting negative comments on the pictures, says Cosmopolitan.

Cosmo says the nasty comments ranged from “”RIP that man’s spine,” and, “undoubtedly the guy is struggling (look at his face),” on an image of her fianceé picking up the joyful Tetteh. While those comments have been met with dozens of positive comments from her followers and other supporters, Tetteh didn’t hesitate to address the comments on her own.

That same week, Tetteh posted a solo picture of herself, accompanied by a caption that read, “Still confident…your rubbish comments ain’t ruining my happiness…thanks to all for the compliments and best wishes…am honoured,” says Cosmo.

But she didn’t stop there. She’s continued to post more photos, including several solo shots showcasing her love of fashion. Her fianceé makes an appearance yet again, this time donning a shirt that says, “Mr. Right.” Tetteh’s reads, “Mrs. Always Right.”

And right she is to show that the negativity spewed by some Internet trolls won’t affect her right to be happy.
