Lydia Forson

On her birthday, Lydia Forson is sharing the story of what has been the battle for her life in the past year.

Lydia, who has won critical acclaim for her recent starring role in Keteke opposite Adjetey Anang, has chosen to a share her personal battles.

In a touching Instagram post which is meant to celebrate God and the people He has “strategically placed” in her life, Lydia Forson lamented that “living in the public eye means going through a lot alone.”

“Last year I was in the best shape of my life, I was healthy, strong and everything seemed to be falling into place. But little did I know that God was preparing me for a tough year ahead.”

Like most of us, Lydia says she normally hesitates to share certain parts of her life with people because one can’t always trust that people will understand what one is going through and “have compassion or even be sensitive to your pain.”

“That’s how I underwent major surgery this year and kept it to myself, even sharing it now terrifies me.”

Though she claims to have been terrified about sharing her personal struggles with the world, she has chosen to do so on her birthday because she wants to tell her “survival story” and thank “all the people who made it possible.”

“Not being able to walk, bath, and do basic things you usually take for granted teaches you a lot about life, humility and all the little things we often overlook.”

“In this period I’ve had to smile through the pain, tears and healing. I felt the need to mask my fears for my loved ones because I didn’t think anyone would quite understand the range of emotions I was going through.”

“I played the part of the strong, ever ready tough girl perfectly, until the day of surgery.”

Lydia was fearful that the success of the surgery she had to undergo was not guaranteed despite the reassurance from her doctor, family and her friends.

“Thankfully I survived and this period brought me so much clarity in my life and I came to appreciate the raw gift of love, family, friendship and even forgiveness.”

“But most importantly it reminded me that I’m NEVER ALONE, especially in the moments I need it most.”

“So today, I want to thank God, by celebrating these people who he’s strategically placed in my life at nearly every turn to see me through the worst.”

“I may not always understand Gods plan for my life and the things I go through, but I have faith that he’s with me every step of the way, and I’ll survive,” she said.
