Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has talked about how she battled and overcame depression after her marriage of many years crashed.
Speaking in a live Instagram session, the mother of two opened up on motherhood, depression, and other topics.
On how she battled depression due to her failed marriage, Iyabo Ojo said;
“Anytime i was alone in my room, i’d always say to myself ”Iyabo Ojo, you’ve failed, you are ugly, how can you have a child and you’d be this skinny, before you had a child you were thick.
“Now you need to lighten up your skin and even if you have a tattoo you are still ugly because no one is going to marry you, no one is going to accept you. Your mom had a failed marriage and you also have a failed marriage”
Going further, the actress noted that in between her sad moments, she would receive a call and try to sound happy over the phone but as soon as the call drops, she’d fall back into overthinking her situation.
She also noted that in all these, she didn’t want love from anybody, and even people who wanted to show her love, she’d push away.
However, she drew strength from her kids and now, happy to see them.
Iyabo also vowed to give them the world.
