Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson has revealed what her biggest fear about her kids is.
The mother of four started talking to Shaffy Bello, a guest on her “Mercy’s Menu” show, during the most recent episode.
The two women’s talk veered from motherhood to acting. Shaffy Bello spoke candidly about how difficult it was to leave her kids behind to relocate to Nigeria and seek an acting career in Nollywood during the conversations.
Mercy Johnson shared her greatest worry concerning her children in response to her revelation.
She stated that she wouldn’t want her children to go through what she went she went through.
“Hmm. So I saw this quote online, let me start from there. The quote said “Overprotective moms are like girls who grew up without being protected” and that meant something.
So one of my biggest fears would be my kids going through what I went through. That emptiness and that no sense of direction. So like I always say, my life is like a scale of preference and they come first before every other thing.
“Cause as a child, I suffered so much and I remember crying with nobody to clean my eyes. I can define hunger because I know it. I can define abuse so it is a feeling I don’t want any child, not the one that came from me, to go through. So they always say “oh Mercy you’re so awesome awesome awesome”, my past is the reason why I am very protective of my kids basically.”
