Blog Comments Sometimes Get Me Depressed- Halima Abubakar

Halima Abubakar has said she read blogs and has been reading it for years, even though a lot of actresses claim they don’t. But she said the comments sometimes get to her because most people do not know her story. She also warned her friends to stop commenting under anonymous to insult her, insisting that, if they have any problem with her, she thinks they should face her. 

Her words:

"That’s like physical bullying. Online, they are invisible. I believe if you have a problem with me, you shouldapproach me. But if you go online and comment as anonymous or use a strange name, you are still bringing yourself down. Yes, you would make me feel sad, but the damage will not be permanent, but temporary until I am strong enough not to read those comments again. I am going to say it that I am not one of those actresses that say they don’t read blogs. I do. I have been reading blogs for the past five years or so, but I have never commented. Sometimes I am pushed to insult everybody there and comment under anonymous. 
But then I tell myself, well, they would always remain anonymous while I stay relevant. And so, I bear most of the insults and try not to be bothered about them.It was not easy. I was depressed for a long time because of things like that. I just felt that people didn’t like me. I didn’t understand how people could still hate me even when I know I am one of the nicest people in Nollywood. I am not disrespecting anybody, I am just saying that even if someone has hurt me several times, I will still be nice to the person. People just go ahead and bash me for no reasons. They don’t even know me and they are saying this and that. Before, I will cry and cry and get depressed. But now, I don’t even bother myself anymore. They don’t know what I’m going through and they don’t know my story," she told thenetng.
