One year after she was disqualified from the Big Brother Naija house, actress, Erica Nlewedim has taken to social media to share the traumatic experience she went through in the past 12 months.
Erica who got disqualified for using unprintable words at former housemate, Laycon revealed that despite the fact that she looked strong and happy in public, she was going through a series of emotional trauma.
According to the 27-year-old actress, she struggled but she healed and forgave herself.
“The past one year I’ve been working, singleminded, almost like a robot, not thinking of how far I’ve come, just focused on my goals, trying to outdo myself, trying to make everyone around me proud, my life has been on fast forward & It was a lot, it took its toll on me and I had to take a break to heal and I thought rest was all I needed until a loved one asked me what I would tell the Erica of September 6 2020,
I thought about it and couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t understand how I had successfully avoided thinking about any of the traumatic experiences that had happened to me in the past one year, it was a struggle think back to those moments of fear and sadness but I did, I spoke to Erica, I forgave her, I applauded her, I promised her she would be proud of herself in a few months and she would be surrounded by so much love. I’m healed and I’ve come so far!! I want to thank God, my loved ones, my Elites words can’t describe much I appreciate you.”
