Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite says she is still healing from the scars she was dealt from a “tough” 2017, and believes in not always fighting back or retaliating when one is treated unjustly.
On Sunday, December 31, 2017, Adegbite shared a lengthy note on Instagram about how she had to cope with being “betrayed in heart breaking ways” and having to live “through some very painful overwhelming changes.”
“Sometimes all you need to do is WALK AWAY from the situation. The law of karma will sort things out. Watever happens, trust that things are falling in place as they need to FOR YOUR GOOD.” reads part of her message.
In late September 2017, Attoh confirmed rumors about the end of his marriage after several denials in an interview with BellaNaija.
“However, since the divorce, we are obviously now reworking things to create a new balance between work, spending time with and raising our son. Dami is a wonderful woman and an amazing mother. Despite our differences, she and I will always be friends. So, more than anything we will find ways to continue to make sure that Brian can still have a balanced upbringing filled with love and support. Both our families have been and are still very supportive in helping us take care of our son Brian when we can’t be there due to work.”
Read Adegbite’s full post below.
2017 was a tough year for me. One of the toughest of my life. My trust was betrayed in heart breaking ways and I had to go through some very painful overwhelming changes. But in all this, I am eternally grateful because who I am became crystal clear to me. Most importantly, I became more convinced that there is a higher power ( call it nature, karma, the universe.. I choose “GOD”). A GOD who listens when called on and who fights for the patient and selfless. He gave me some things I thought I really really wanted, to prove to me that there is nothing impossible for him to do, but he took them away again, this time by force, because sometimes, what we want is not necessarily good for us. It’s an uncomfortable process, like a child being weaned, but it signifies growth and advancement. I can’t deny that my scars are still healing, and I’m still a little dizzy from trying to adjust ????but ultimately, I am thankful for the opportunity to have been handed an almost brand new slate and for the courage to accept it. This coming year, if things aren’t going the way you planned, sometimes, you may just have to take some steps back or away and choose to look at things from a different angle. I promise you, there is always a silver lining. When you are treated unjustly, you don’t always have to fight back or retaliate. Sometimes all you need to do is WALK AWAY from the situation. The law of karma will sort things out. Watever happens, trust that things are falling in place as they need to FOR YOUR GOOD. Stay POSITIVE and CHEERFUL, train yourself not to hold on to anything or anyone too tightly and never let anyone or any situation dim your LIGHT. I wish you and your loved ones a prosperous new year. May 2018 be the best year of our lives so far ???? I don’t know about you but I am super SUPER excited about my future ????
