Opeyemi Aiyeola - There were times I wanted to give up.

Nollywood actress, Opeyemi Aiyeola, spoke about going through challenges but the ability to pull through.

The actress recently revealed that people see her in public having a smiley face but they don’t have a clue of what she could possibly be going through but her belief in God has always been the way out.

Motivating others who could be going through some challenges the actress noted that she draws her strength by celebrating others who are doing fine and reading inspiration books.

“Believe me when I say there are moments I’ve got nothing but tears in my eyes.  Moments I want to give up! Give in! Let go! Question God! Ask so many questions without answers. I do this because I'm nothing but human. Sometimes the loudest voices and prayers are heard and answered in silence, most time through sincere tear drops. Interestingly, you see me jumping around; wearing a smiley happy face this doesn't mean I don't have my moments.

“Most times, it takes such efforts for the Strong to remain strong, in the midst of trials or challenges. Ask me where I get my strength from; I get it by concentrating on the positive things, the joyful and miraculous moments, Reading edifying messages n books, listening to testimonies of others, celebrating and rejoicing with those rejoicing, not getting bothered by what peeps think of me, doing things my way, being true to myself, surrounding myself with positive people and above all holding unto my faith in my maker and not man. It's another week to try and get better and fruitful. Wake up, stay strong, and set out today with renewed strength at being the best you can but most importantly, be kind to someone today? Go an extra mile at making and keeping someone truly and genuinely happy,” she disclosed.
