Veteran Nollywood actress, Eucharia Anunobi has told all who care to listen that she is still a very happy woman despite losing her only child years ago with menopause lurking around the corner.
The thespian who has featured in countless Nollywood movies said that much in a video interview with TV Continental, which was shared on the official Instagram handle of the TV station.
According to Eucharia Anunobi, being sad is not an option in spite of the loss she had suffered in her life as a single woman who menopause set to catch up with.
She said; “I have to be happy, because God tells me that, in all things, we should give Him thanks. And I cannot be saddened because when you grow in God…Growing in God is knowing God’s word and as you know God’s word, His spirit builds you up to the point where you understand that everything on the face of the earth is vanity.
“So, I would actually say, ‘Don’t empathise with me.” Rather, just like the Bible would say, prepare yourself, for calamity will surely befall all of us. So, when it does befall you. Would you be prepared…to carry it?
“For me, I rejoice. I’m happy. I lost my only child. I’m single and it looks like menopause is around the corner and people are like, ‘Oh my God, but she’s happy.’ I’m happy because God says, ‘I will do a new thing.’ God says ‘Restoration is in my hand.”
