Former TV presenter Julie Gichuru has revealed how her parents breaking up left her depressed and at the lowest point in her life.
Taking to social media, Julie shared an emotional post of how she was left devastated at 21-years old when her father broke up with her mother and decided to remarry.
After her parents divorced, her dad decided to remarry, forcing her mother to move to another country.
“1995 – 21 years old. 2nd year of LLB Law, in University in Cardiff Wales, UWCC.
“I was in the throes of deep depression. My parents divorced, Dad remarried and Mum emigrated. I had no home to go back to. I didn’t have enough money to complete my degree. I was frightened and anxious. I lamented with God, I told Him I was so angry with Him, but I still loved Him and I asked Him to hold me tight and never let me go,” she said.
Julie confessed that after the breakup, she pushed herself to read and work harder to mask the stress.
“I found two jobs at this point and studied hard. I didn’t know where I would end up but I knew knowledge would get me there. As long as I had breath in my body, I was going to get there.
