Jan 24, 2015 – Halima Abubakar Battling Depression & Hopelessness, Nigerian Actress Attempted Suicide Twice

At last Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar has opened up on her battle with depression, despair and suicide.

In a quick chat with Saturday Beats, Halima claims she is broken emotionally and battling hopelessness.  The controversial movie star also opened up on her past suicide attempts.

In her words:

“There were a lot of things that were wrong with me and led to my depression. I was angry, broke, people lied against me and they were also using my name to lie. I was deceived by the people I loved. I was seriously broke at the time and I had lots of responsibilities.

“There were many charity projects I was involved in and I was doing everything with my money. Everything just got to me at the same time and I felt fed-up. I wanted to kill myself because there was nobody to help me. It happened two years ago and it also occurred last year. I thank God I did not kill myself because I realised that nothing is worth it. I was upset with myself when I got back to my senses because the people you want to kill yourself for do not really care about you. It was a terrible phase in my life,”.

“My boyfriend was not helping matters. I wanted somebody that would listen and not say that I was lying or exaggerating the extent of what I was going through. Whenever I tell him I am sad, he wants to give me money but it is not all about money all the time.

“Yes, I said I was broke but it was not only about money. I was broken emotionally. If there is no hope, I feel I am broken. I needed a listening ear. The definition of broke is relative but Nigerians think it is only about money. Money was also involved. The first major problem I had was money; then I was also emotionally broken,”.

Depression is no child play, Halima should go for counselling

      @jmartinssamuel..why the hate? If U cannot advice her -don’t add to her problems. Why would you advice anyone to go and die, can u say the same thing to ur own sister? If U don’t have something to contribute don’t post hate words.

      Be very careful!!

      @ Obi, will you say that to you own sister, if you don’t have anything better to say, then don’t say anything, because you really do not know her, we all need to be kind to one and other.

    My dear dats not enough for u to take ur life, listen .there is notin new under d sun, dat problem dat wants to make u to commit sucide, millions of pple go through it on a daily basis yet dey overcom stronger. All u need to do is to make ur own decision ,dat u will do ur best an leave d rest for God. As for d pple dat calls u lier, if u believe in ur self in life, my dear, wat pple calls u is irrelevant, emmotionally, in dis part of d world, if u tink dat pple wil always make u happy , u lie oo. Find somtin to always make ur self happy wit. Dat is me for u.

    For my own thinkin, she need a man to settle down with, not really money issue, the way i understand her filligs but she will nt open up in public and say sometin like that, becos when a woman fill that she is up to a level of settling down with a man and men are not coming, some of them wil start filling incomplete, and that time they is nothing u wil do they wil fill satisfy.
