Nigerian actress and TV host, Nancy Isime has shaved off her hair for a new movie with popular actor Jim Iyke.
The Edo state born plays the role of a village palace maid who carries a secret on her back that will either cost her her life or wipe out the entire village.
Few days ago, Nancy Isime revealed how she suffered depression and had several suicidal thoughts while growing up.
Sharing on Instagram, Nancy Isime wrote:
“You know, growing up I suffered Depression. I was so young to understand life, yet I wanted out. I was in a dark place.
I had several suicidal thoughts but somehow I found the strength to live through all of them.
As a younglin, I was shy and really withdrawn. Where there were several people talking I wouldn’t dare speak for fear of being asked to shut up. I knew I was funny and smart inside my head, but will just crack the joke/give the opinion in my head.
I envied those with “great personalities”.
I was lonely. I had a few friends but I was Lonely. I was sad but really didn’t understand why. This continued even till my late teenage years, suicidal thoughts were gone But I was still unhappy. Constantly looking for what/who would accept and maybe make me happy.
One day, I decided I was going to find my voice. I was gonna speak when I wanted to, I was gonna crack a joke when i felt like it and if no one laughs at it I’m gonna laugh anyway cos I’m funny as heck! I was gonna do whatever I wanted to do. I knew I had a great personality and I decided it had to shine! Guess what, the universe worked side by side me on this one. It became a TABOO for me to hang around anyone who makes me feel less of myself. A TABOO! Life handed me a huge scissors and i just chopped away! Cutting off, moulding and protecting myself.
I’m writing all this today because I want to speak to you who’s going through depression especially at a young age. The suicide rate amongst the youth is alarming.
I’m sorry you have to go though this phase for whatever reason. Yes that’s what it is, a phase! Please hang in there. You have such a bright amazing future ahead and the devil is just trying to mess with your mind. Please fight back. Distance yourself from whatever/whoever brings you to that state. Spend time with yourself and only people who brightens your mood. A bad day isn’t a bad life. Listen to uplifting music. Invest your energy in positivity. Unfollow anyone on social media who unknowingly puts any kind of pressure on you, heck even if its me! I’ll miss you but you MUST hit that button!
Life is Beautiful! And there’s so much to learn and enjoy from it. See you at 90 Boo! Mwah!”
