Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar always says
that she has had a tough time in the media –
especially social media – and that for the longest
time she was depressed as a result.
Now the actress has also revealed that one of the
triggers for her depression was also her financial
state and that things once got so bad that she
sadly considered suicide.
In a chat with Punch Newspaper, she reveals:
On depression: There were a lot of things that
were wrong with me and led to my depression. I
was angry, broke, people lied against me and they
were also using my name to lie. I was deceived
by the people I loved. I was seriously broke at the
time and I had lots of responsibilities.
On finances : There were many charity projects I
was involved in and I was doing everything with
my money. Everything just got to me at the same
time and I felt fed-up.
On considering suicide: I wanted to kill myself
because there was nobody to help me. It
happened two years ago and it also occurred last
year. I thank God I did not kill myself because I
realised that nothing is worth it. I was upset with
myself when I got back to my senses because the
people you want to kill yourself for do not really
care about you. It was a terrible phase in my life.
On her boyfriend not really helping : He was not
helping matters. I wanted somebody that would
listen and not say that I was lying or
exaggerating the extent of what I was going
through. Whenever I tell him I am sad, he wants
to give me money but it is not all about money
all the time.
On being spent emotionally : I said I was broke
but it was not only about money. I was broken
emotionally. If there is no hope, I feel I am
broken. I needed a listening ear. The definition of
broke is relative but Nigerians think it is only
about money. Money was also involved. The first
major problem I had was money; then I was also
emotionally broken.
