Ghanaian comic actor, Don Little, has recently opened up about a profound moment in his life when he found himself questioning his self-worth, purpose, and physical appearance. In an intimate interview with Accra FM’s Nana Romeo, the actor shared his struggles and how he grappled with the idea of why he was not blessed with certain qualities or advantages that others seemed to effortlessly possess.
Don Little candidly admitted that his smaller-than-average stature made him believe it would be a stumbling block to his success, particularly in the competitive movie industry. He revealed that there was a time when he directly questioned God, wondering why He had created him with physical limitations that could hinder his dreams and goals.
Reflecting on his early life, Don Little disclosed the numerous challenges he faced. He recounted times when he couldn’t afford three square meals a day or even find a place to call home. These circumstances left him feeling rejected and fueled his frustration, leading him to speak negatively about his creator.
However, Don Little’s journey took a positive turn as he discovered resilience and determination within himself. Despite the initial setbacks, he found success in the entertainment industry and overcame the limitations that his physical appearance seemed to impose.
“Because God created me this way, I was forced to question Him, and to some extent, spoke against Him. I made some utterances which I now regret. I was very angry with God because I felt He didn’t love me, and I also felt the whole world was against me,” Don Little confessed.
The actor, known privately as Stephen Atanga, further expressed that things began to change after he questioned and had a heartfelt conversation with God. He admitted that he is now tempted to make negative remarks against God whenever he faces difficulties, as he has realized that God hears him in those moments.
“Anytime things aren’t going well, I recall some of the words I said to God, and I’m tempted to repeat them because I’ve realized whenever I do that, He answers me,” Don Little emphasized.
Despite his initial frustration, the actor expressed gratitude to God for how far he has come, especially within the movie fraternity. Don Little’s story serves as an inspiring example of resilience and the power of self-belief, reminding us that our physical appearance does not determine our worth or ability to achieve success.
