Nigerian actress, Iyabo Ojo is opening up on journey as a single mother.
The mother of two took to her Instagram page to reflect on the struggles she faced while raising her children.
Posting a throwback photo of herself and her children, Festus and Priscilla, alongside a recent photo of them, Iyabo expressed her gratitude to God for helping her pull through.
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 .. There is always light @ the end of the tunnel.”
Ojo, 44 got divorced to her husband in 2001, two years after the birth of their first child, Priscilla.
