Nigerian actress, Iyabo Ojo has recounted how she started her journey as a single mom with no direction.
The mother of two took to her Instagram page on January 27, 2022 where she shared an old photo of herself and her children while still very young.
The screen diva narrated the fear and worries she had while struggling to cater for her kids after she got divorced.
According to her, she felt like a failure and never thought she’ll make it in life adding that the only thing she did was to love her kids.
However, things took a different turn and she’s grateful for everything she has become.
“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.”
Ojo is the mother of two children, Festus and Priscilla, whom she had with her ex-husband, Mr.Ojo, before their divorce in 2001.
After her short-lived marriage which lasted for only three years, Iyabo Ojo had been saddled with the responsibility of taking care of her two children.
