‘I Was Afraid, Depressed, Confused’ – Actress Iyabo Ojo Recounts How She Started Her Journey As Single Mother
Veteran actress Iyabo Ojo has shared an inspiring story of how she began her journey as a single mother.
The mother-of-two, Festus and Priscilla, had a short-lived marriage that lasted three years. Since the collapse of her marriage in 2001, she had been taking care of her children single-handedly.
In her social media post to mark the popular throwback Thursday, 44-year-old Iyabo Ojo said she was afraid, depressed, confused and sometimes felt like a looser, however, she pulled through.
She shared an old image (above) of her and her kids and captioned; “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.”
“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.”
