A Nigerian woman with the name Omobolanle Adeyemo recalled a painful memory that happened to her on Monday, September 9, 2019.
Adeyemo said sharing the memory is proof of how she has been attacked and verbally shamed by people for not having children.
She said that on that very day just as she and her partner were trying to settle down in a new country and jobs, someone sent her WhatsApp messages that would later break her down emotionally.
The Nigerian woman said that a look at the messages a year after further reveals that the person could have been filled with jealousy of her achievements rather than her childlessness.
She said the person’s messages were a calculated attempt to hurt and it succeeded. Adeyemo said she started doubting God as she questioned him many times.
Adeyemo was so in pain that she said: “For each tear that I shed, I cursed this person over and over again. I cursed this person in my pain and sorrow. I was like Hannah in the Bible who was mocked for being without a child.”
Things, however, changed two months after as she conceived. Some months after then, she had a bouncing baby boy.
Adeyemo said she decided to share her story with screenshots of the messages to show the person that God made her an overcomer.
The woman said she would never forgive the person until whoever the person is, reveals their identity and show remorse.
Towards the tail end of her Facebook post, she said the person also deliberately hid their gender, posing as a man. She added that she is sure the person is a woman.
