BBNaija: I avoided thinking about my traumatic experience, says Erica

Big Brother Naija star, Erica Nlewedim, while celebrating her one-year anniversary of being on the platform, has opened up on her emotional state this time last year.

The young lady was disqualified during the last edition of the show for flouting multiple house rules.

In a post on her verified Instagram page, Erica, fondly called Star Girl, revealed that she passed through an emotional roller coaster but she has since healed from all the hurt.

She wrote, “The past one year I’ve been working, single-minded, 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 thinking 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.

“My management @upfrontandpersonalbooking, the @multichoice_group, all my fellow housemates, thank you. I love you all!”
