Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has jumped on social media to recall a major low in her life which she used as an inspirational message for her followers.

She took to social media recently to write about the saga and urged her fans who are battling the same thing to open up.
Her words, “Stumbled on this pix in my photo gallery and it brought back memories ………….
“I want to reach out to someone out there! You think your life has been decimated by scars. You find it hard to forgive yourself and others that have been part of the messes in your life! I have good news for you! Your messes will soon become a message! Your errors are gradually turning you into a hero! Your trials will soon become triumph! Your adversity is turning to your advancement! Your frustration will soon become your fuel and your scars will one day turn you into a star….. at some point in our lives we experience trials, tribulations, we become broken ( which is inevitable)…. but whether we will become stronger is not inevitable, It’s OUR CHOICE……..
”Never be ashamed of your scars, it simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you “ …… In Retrospect.”
