Zizo Tshwete Opens Up About Her Traumatic Past. Women are known to be powerful beyond their knowledge because of their ability to carry on no matter how traumatising an experience can be and Zizo is one of the many women who have soldiered on despite the ordeal.
Radio and media personality Zizo Tshwete took to Instagram to share her experience as a young girl who was robbed of her innocence.
She posted a picture of her baring and appreciating her body to her followers as well as opening up about how the experience has affected her through her journey of life.
In the lengthy emotional post, Tshwete spoke about how she never really acknowledged the incident until she was an adult which by then it had already broken her as a woman.
Although she was very vague about what the experience was exactly, she detailed how she had to struggle out of the dark place, which is why she can celebrate the woman that she is today.
The former Selimathunzi presenter is acknowledging that being vulnerable is the reason behind her empowerment as well as going through the emotions to heal and find peace within herself.
“BEFORE YOU PASS YOUR JUDGEMENT CAN YOU SEE THINGS FROM MY PERSPECTIVE:
Nobody deserves to have their innocence taken away from them. NO MATTER WHAT. My body has carried that trauma for so many years. I couldn’t handle the pain as a ten year little girl I passed out. Never thought about it again until as a deeply broken adult who desperately needed to heal. Barely surviving that only to encounter it again repeatedly as a young adult took any last hope I may have had for the goodness in people. You can only imagine the abyss I have had to crawl out of to know of self-love let alone to have the courage to allow myself to experience it. Yet, here I am….”
Zizo is sending love to all those who have gone throw a similar experience or is battling to get the life that they deserve.
Many fans including friends in the industry filled her comment section with messages of appreciation and gratitude for sharing such a personal experience with the world.
