Growing up, I was quite chubby and I got taunted with names like “fatty, ducky and hummer”. I was depressed for a long time and began to see myself as ugly and fat. The fact that girls my age had boyfriends and I didn’t, made it even worse for me.
Fast forward to the university, I was still going through depression, I thought being with the opposite sex would make me feel better, so I had tons of boyfriends, gave my virginity away and I got pregnant. Yeah, all in my first year.
I used to be a church girl back home, going for quiz and singing contests. I got to school and for a whole semester and didn’t go to church. I just felt I wasn’t worth it anymore and didn’t deserve salvation.
Getting pregnant moved me closer to God cause at that point I had no one else to go to. I joined a fellowship in school, became a worker and drew closer to him. February 14th 2015, I lost my baby and it was a horrible experience.
I won’t say I am perfect now, I’m still a work in progress. but I’ve learnt to value and appreciate myself cause God doesn’t make mistakes. I never let people’s comments bother me anymore. No one would love you like God would. He’s everything I could ever ask for and more.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share a summary of my story.
