Nollywood actress Toyin Aimakhu has opened up about her drug use and battle with depression. In an interview the actress spoke about her bout with depression and drug use.
Below are five key things she said:
1. “I didn’t plan for a broken home, I didn’t plan for a broken marriage.
After my marriage, there was so many negativity and I was emotionally carried away.”
2. “I didn’t heal before jumping into another relationship but I thought I was going to be healed by another relationship.
I realised I didn’t love myself and I wanted people around to love me.
I didn’t focus on things that really mattered. I was focusing on things that don’t matter and I always choose people before me.”
3. “I did not love myself enough. I was losing touch with things that used to work for me because I was involved with negative habits like drugs, smoking, codeine.
All these things were empowering my negative energy. So I had to stop.”
4. “I realised I deserved more. I focus more on bigger pictures. I decided to change my team and few people around me and I decided to change my habits.
I stopped doing a lot of things. A lot of bad things that brings out the negative energy in me.”
5.”I sought for help. I changed some people and friends around me and I stopped my negative habits.
The battle is 100% over. I have lived my past behind I’m looking forward to the future.
I’ll let everything that happened in the past be in the past. That’s why I agreed to change my name. I’m in the future. I thank God for giving me another chance.”
