Iyabo Ojo, the Nigerian actress, has revealed how she started her journey as a single mum.
The mother-of-two took to her Instagram page on Thursday to disclose that she began her journey as a single mum without direction.
The 44-year-old film star said at some point, she was confused, depressed, and felt like she wasn’t good enough to be a single mum.
“This year, I began my journey as a single mum with no direction. I was afraid, sometimes depressed, confused, and I always had a lot of anxiety,” she wrote alongside old and current photos of herself with her children.
“I felt like a failure; a loser. I felt I wasn’t good enough, I felt little, I didn’t really know how to fit in or even start.
“How was I even going to pull through? I never thought of making it in life. I just wanted my kids to be fine, that was my ultimate goal.
“All I knew to do was to love my kids immensely and give them all of me and that inspired me to keep moving.
“Today I look back and all I want to say is thank you Lord.
“It’s never too late to start all over again. It will be tough but you will be fine. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.”
