Popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, recently took to social media to reflect on her journey as a single mother.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the single mother of two noted that at the beginning of her journey as a single mum, she was afraid, confused, and anxious about what the future held.
According to her, becoming a single mum made her feel like a failure and a loser. However, looking back and seeing how far they have come, she expressed gratitude to God for helping her to pull through.
Sharing a throwback photo of herself and her children, Festus and Priscilla, alongside a recent photo of them all grown up, she wrote,
“This year i began my journey as a single mum with no direction…i was afraid, sometimes depressed, confused, i always had alot 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 me 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 & that inspired me to keep moving.. Today i look back & all i want to say is thank you Lord. It’s never to late to start all over again…… it will be tough but you will be fine “.
