Juliet Ibrahim was in Accra, Ghana for the launch of her new book ‘A Toast To Life” which she claimed is about her life and lessons she has learned from her experiences over the years.
During the lunch event, the actress finally opened up on her divorce and why she left her marriage. She appealed to women to quit their ‘unwholesome marriages’
The Ghanaian actress admonished the public on not judging people who want to end their marriages as she told Citi News that hers left her in a dark place where she was miserable.
”People have had their own perception of what led to my divorce. I have sat down for many years and have had to deal with the pain and insults from the public who had no clue what I went through as a person during that period and how it affected me.
“The depression and all that happened. All I will say is you should never judge someone who wants to come out of a marriage. Because sometimes it is better to come out of it than to stay in it. For your own sanity and mental stability it us always good to take a bold decision for yourself. For your kids, if there are kids involved take a bold decision,” she said.
Meanwhile, her recent ex-boyfriend, IcebergSlim took to social media to offer an apology to her one year after their break up.

The actress finally responded to this apology with an excerpt from her book “A Toast To Life” chapter 7 and 12.

Excerpts from Chapter 7 and Chapter 12 of #AToastToLife @atoasttolifebook The gut feeling you have about someone, even when you cannot place your finger on what it is, is important. Do not ignore your intuition. Lessons I learnt? The decision to love someone is a personal choice, but if your family or the people close to you have that gut feeling about your partner and you are too in love to see it? Pause. They are rarely ever wrong. When I dismantled the walls around me brick by brick and began to breathe more freely, I realised a lot of things. Life is really not so difficult. You live your life to the best of your ability, doing everything within your power and means to stay happy and fulfilled. People – friends and family – will hurt you, they will betray your trust, but you owe it to your mind to forgive them and let go of any negative feelings. You will hurt other people along the way. You must apologize and mean it when you realise it. You must not waive or shrug it off. It is the little things that hurt the most. You owe it to yourself to chase and pursue your dreams. You try, and you try again and again, until you get what you want. You are your own happily-ever-after. Yes, you are beautiful, awesome and complete the way you are. It took me a really long time to understand this; that I had to love and find contentment in myself, my family, my beautiful baby and the work I do. There is a lot I look forward to in my life, my career and business. There are bigger hurdles to scale through and I am prepared and looking forward to all of it. But mostly, I am grateful for how far I have come, from the little girl who survived three civil wars, to being the Juliet Ibrahim.
