I cried for days to heal my broken heart – Actress Padita Agu
Nollywood actress Padita Agu had shared a candid experience about her past relationship in a tell-all video she posted on YouTube.
The actress revealed that she made the decision to share her experience so that young girls can learn from it.
She also revealed that she married a man the very first day she met him fifteen years ago. She explained that the marriage had only lasted for three years and those years were miserable for her.
According to her, during those years of marriage, she had attempted to take her own life. The actress also shared the lessons she learned from her time in the marriage for the benefit of young girls.
Agu advised young ladies not to fall for pressure. She noted that in her case the pressure was from her loved ones and the people around her.
The actress explained that her friend had introduced her to the man she married and her friend pressured her into giving her number to the man. She said the man had called her at a time she was vulnerable which led to talking to the guy on the phone.
She advised people not to assume that they know someone just from talking to them on the phone. She said before going down the road with someone you should have gone out a few times.
According to her, during the time they talked on the phone, she started to believe that she knows a lot about him and their discussions led to talking about marriage.
The actress also advised people not to settle for someone they are not compatible with. She explained that the man had urged her to take an adventure with him by getting married the first time they meet.
All these and more she had shared 5 days ago, however in a quick update, Padita hinted that after she made opened up on her marital crisis, it opened up all her old wounds and she cried for days to get her total healings.
She posted the image above on Instagram and captioned it: ” So, after posting the video of how I married a man first day I saw him, something happened to me. A lot happened actually, but one of them hit me the most.
First was the amazing support and response I got from all of you. It was just too much!!❤❤❤
Second was the emails and DMs I received from all over the world!!! Among were those encouraging me, those about to make same mistake but withdrew after watching my video, those who made same mistake but got out and those still stuck in their mistake and seeking a way out.
Thirdly and majorly was me realizing that I haven’t healed all these years. I simply locked this experience in some box and buried without facing it, dealing with it and healing from it.
That journey began from when I posted that video. It brought back memories between my family and friends and we had to relive the experience.
For 5 days stretch, I was crying nonstop. I wasn’t shading tears, I was actually weeping as I went back memory lane. I allowed myself cry all I could and admitted over and over again how foolish and naive I was. In the end (of reliving the experience) I thanked God I made it out alive. The story could have been different. I may not be here in whole (lost some body part or got terminal illness) or at all to tell the story. But I’m here!! Whole and healthy. 🙏🙏🙏
So, I go on shining light where I see darkness. Not long from now, I will tell you more about this journey and I can’t wait to dance again and make you smile and laugh 😁😁.
Thank you for encouraging and supporting me. 🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤
Good morning. “
