Makinwa shared a video of Oprah Winfrey addressing her tense relationship with her mother and how she struggled in other respects as a child; it was in reaction to that that Toke explained that her journey to healing from her own emotional struggles have required therapy.

She recommended forgiveness, although she admits its difficult; practicing forgiveness alongside going through therapy has put her in better capacity to overcome her struggle with PTSD, she shared.

She wrote:

“We are all broke different, Therapy saved me. I’m not a hundred percent, but I can say that going to therapy has really helped.

One day I hope I’m brave enough to share my journey to healing fro PSTD through therapy.

Forgive some today, I know it’s difficult but life is short. And just like Oprah played music and family thanked her, mum, I pray you all get the courage to go to those dark places and come out in the light. Love you all – TM”.
