Calabar Chic as she turned 28 years old yesterday, disclosed how her very dehumanizing encounter led her to contemplate suicide.
However, she survived and her survival is the reason she is grateful to God for soothing her broken soul and nursing it till she was hale and hearty.

So sometime Last month I opened up about my struggle with depression and managing it for years!
Struggling with ptsd from some of the worst experiences of my life!
From getting raped in the most humiliating way at Age 14
To attempting suicide a few times
Losing my best friend to Domestic violence
Surviving A house Fire in 2017
A Kidnap in 2018 wheeeew! .
Living through all of the trauma, the nightmares,the panic attacks has been a struggle!
You crave for peace but even sleep doesn’t afford that. It wrecks your dreams and turns your days into a living nightmare. It messes your head up, destroys your personality, your relationship with your family and friends, your work, your social life, it affects them all.
I decided to share some part of my story just to motivate some people here because I want people to know that they’re not alone
Truth is some of The people who appear strongest.. some of the people u look up to who you envy are fighting the toughest battles too
I can come out wearing the brightest smile but deep down be really sad. ,
But in all…. I’ve come to understand that living is an act of bravery
So , Today….I Celebrate me for never giving up! For holding me up regardless.
Now I know better….I love my life and how it is turning out.
I am grateful for it.
If I could shine a spotlight on it for everyone who’s ever wanted to die, I would, because it’s beautiful and amazing and I would do anything in the world to protect it. And I want anyone who might be suicidal to know how much better life can be.
Yes Emotional pain is real, and no matter how much it feels like it can’t end, it can. It can get better. It does get better. Life gets better. And you get better with it.
ThankGod we don’t look like what we’ve been through!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STRONG WOMAN
28 Is About Self Discovery – Steph Isuma Aka Calabar Chic

Okrrrrrrrrrr!…… it’s about to get hot in here 🔥
Chapter 28 is all about self discovery and becoming a better me more and more everyday. Learning to love myself, not caring what society thinks, and to follow my passions even if no one believes.
When I started to believe in myself others followed suit. When I knew that I could spread my positivity and faith amongst others, that was when I knew that I could change… maybe not the whole world but maybe a fraction of it.
We are very powerful creatures and can achieve anything that we put our minds to. You just have to know deep within yourself that you are worthy! When I knew that I was worthy, I knew that there was nothing that I could not achieve.
