Media personality and Nollywood actress, Destiny Amaka, who works as an on-air personality with Cool FM 96.9 Lagos, has taken to her Instagram page to narrate how she called off her engagement, saying that ‘broken engagement is better than broken marriage.’
Here is how she shared her story in full;
“Broken engagement is better than broken marriage. Paris 2011 he popped the question, I saw the ring my mums face, my friends and family who flew in cheering for joy. The money that was spent, the effort from family and friends. No one would know the heated argument we had few hours before this pic was taken.
Fast forward few months, during the entire preparation for our traditional wedding we weren’t speaking, but they will tell you its normal, it happens. Its not true! It takes immense courage to walk away from something you’ve been building for years. I was young, won’t say much. @nickiminaj tweets few weeks back hit close to home.
No regrets! No hate, I strongly believe he gave his best, and with that knowledge its up to you to determine whether their best is good enough for you. Gratitude #throwbackthursday my soul craves for a little bit more from life.
I gave the ring back, the cars, the house, our investments all! And with my little savings I was hidding in my friends account I moved to Lagos 2012 started from scratch, with no friends or family members I really knew what a journey!
I still believe in love and best believe I won’t be settling for anything less than team work! I know my worth and yes it may scare some away, but the right man will know how to bring out the best in you not the worst.
#TeamLove #postcomingdownsoon looking forward to writing a blog! I have too many life experiences I would like to share without offending those close to me, and also hearing and learning from your experiences too. Life is beautiful when we all come together, it took a lot out of me sha!!!! But it gave a lot back #love #marriage #engagement #life #knowyourworth #Godiscleansingmysoul #ithinkimready.”
