I was afraid, sometimes depressed and confused – Actress Iyabo Ojo reflects on her journey as a single mother

Last night, the actress and mother of two turned to Instagram to reflect on her experience as a single mother.

Iyabo expressed her thankfulness to God for assisting her in parenting her children, Festus and Priscilla, alone, by posting a flashback photo of herself and her children, Festus and Priscilla, beside a recent one of them.

Iyabo wrote in her essay that the year she started her journey as a single mother, she was often fearful, sometimes melancholy, and bewildered, and that she had a lot of anxiety because she had no idea where she was going.

She stated that becoming a single mum made her feel like a failure and a looser. However, seeing the outcome of she and her kids, she can only but thank God. 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 anxietyI 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”
