I Tried To Kill Myself Because I Was Broke- Halima Abubakar

halima This is not the first time Abubakar would be speaking about her attempted suicide, she once said it on her instagram page, but in this new interview with Punch, Halima shed more light on it and explained how she went broke and was tired of , how people lied using her name, how people she loved betrayed her, and how her boyfriend couldn’t even save her. Continue below. If not for divine intervention, Halima Abubakar would have been dead by now. She disclosed this in an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats. The actress said she went into depression some time ago and considered suicide as the only option of getting away from that state. And guess why Halima was depressed and wanted to kill herself -she was broke! She said, “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,” she said. When asked why her boyfriend could not help her out, Halima said he compounded her case instead of helping out. “He 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,” she said. Source:Ladun

    Is she the first to be financially broke? Is she the first to be emotionally down? So…why commit suicide for such stupid reasons? I think by now we even ought to be reading her obituary going by the manner and frequency these stupid thoughts of committing suicide oftens comes to her mind…mscheww! But i know what she is trying to do – seeking from the public an undue relevance and sympathy in substitution for her poor professional acting skills.

    Dear Halima, here’s a piece of advice for you. Please if such thoughts ever cross your mind again, instead of taking to the social media or the press to rat off your frustrations looking for cheap publicity, well just go ahead and do what you feel like because for we over here in Pakistan, we don’t care, we see it here daily on a constant basis, so its nothing new. And again, if such thoughts can’t help your career to improve, then kindly just quit from the industry and save us the stress of always referring to you as a pseudo-actress. Thank you!

    Thank God that you didnt kill yourself because that would have been the worst besides there are so many people out there that have bigger problems than yours and yet have not killed themselves. Am just happy that you made the right choice and next time, learn to put your trust in God and not in men
