Adesua Etomi-Wellington, the popular Nigerian actress, recently shocked many when she admitted that she had ‘trust issues’.
Adesua, who is married to singer, Banky W, made this revelation during a programme at The Waterbrook Church, Lagos.
She said, “I have serious trust issues. God and I have been working on it for a couple of years. I believe I am still on a journey so I am coming to you from the place of still being on this journey. Nobody is perfect and the aim is progression, not perfection. I have trust issues when I am dealing with God or God is dealing with me in specific situations. I even have trust issues when it comes to the most mundane things.”
Speaking further, the ‘Sugar Rush’ actress noted that she was a very emotional person, adding that while watching a movie or listening to a song, she could cry for no reason.
She said, “I love movies and I enjoy reading scripts. I also love watching stage plays. I love everything that has to do with acting. That being said, I am also very emotional. It used to be a problem for me before because I wanted to be a ‘hard guy’. (However), I have started to embrace it and realise that God created me the way he did for a purpose and it also helps in being able to empathise with people. Now, I see it as a strength of mine.
“I am also the kind of person that cries for no reason when watching a movie that is emotional or listening to a song. I could be watching a film and the scene could be emotional in a sad or happy way. And, I would just start crying because it’s making me sad or pulling my heart strings.”
