“I was abandoned by my mother at the age of seven months (7 months) with my father and step-mother.
My step-mother was mean. I endured all manner of maltreatment she meted at me. Sometimes I went hungry for days. She would so starve me that I would be seeing death.
On one occasion, I was very hungry that I had to eat our dog’s leftover food but boy caught me eating the dog’s leftover food (eba and egusi) and he told his mother who later that evening invited me to her house and asked me if what her son said was true.
I was so terrified that I begged her not to tell my step-mother, because she will kill me if she knew that I ate the dog’s leftover instead of throwing it away. The woman wept and promised to give me food everyday without my step-mother knowing, a promise she kept till we left the compound.
As if starving me was enough punishment, my step-mother flogged me merciless until I would faint at times. She would also apply pepper on my vagina, eyes, armpit and neck, tie me up and abandone in one of the toilet for days without food.
Despite all these experiences, I was very bright academically and was loved and favoured by God and people. I knew that the only way to escape was to achieve educational success, so I never joked with schooling.
So you see, I have every right to be hateful, bitter, jealous, arrogant, sad, negative and toxic but I choose not to.”
GOD’S TIMINGS IS ALWAYS PERFECT 😇🙏
