Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke Faani, has revealed that she once wished her mother dead after “men of God” told her that her mother was after her life.
Chacha shared this revelation in a post on her Instagram page on Wednesday, June 7.
In the post, she recalled how she used to have an intense love for her mother as a child, considering her her best friend. However, as she grew older, her emotions took a dark turn, leading to a deep-seated hatred for her mother.
Chacha said she experienced nightmares and hallucinations that seemed to support her misguided beliefs.
Regrettably, during episodes of mental instability, she encountered some so-called men of God who reinforced her distorted perception of her mother.
They convinced her that her mother posed a danger to her well-being, and as a result, she found herself harboring ill wishes towards her.
Sharing a lovely video of herself and her mother, she expressed her gratitude for overcoming those negative thoughts and feelings during that time.
“I loved her intensely when I was younger. She was, and still is, my best friend. However, as I got older, I began to dislike her and developed a deep hatred for her. I experienced nightmares and hallucinations that supported my misguided euphoria.
“Unfortunately, many ‘men of God’ told me during several manic episodes that she was plotting against my life. Consequently, I found myself wishing for her death and saying despicable things about her.
“Looking back now at my mental health challenges and journey, it’s laughable to realize that those dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs were a disorder; a chemical reaction in the brain waves that switches your ‘most favorite’ to ‘your least favorite’.
“Dear reader, many people have been emotionally torn apart from their loved ones due to underlying mental conditions. They create all sorts of negative stories to justify their deluded claims. Fortunately, there are pills for those strange, inexplicable feelings. Did you know?
“Today is my mother’s birthday, and I’m grateful to have realized that it was all a sickness in my head while she is still alive. I love you deeply, Mommy. You are a blessed woman with nine grandchildren and still counting. 😍” She wrote.
