Radio and TV personality Zizo Tshwete recently poured her heart on social media about a traumatic experience that changed her life at age ten.
She posted this under a picture where she wore a black leotard and high heels.
“Before you pass your judgment, can you see things from my perspective,” she wrote.

“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.”

She went on to says, “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.”
Zizo wrote, you can only imagine the abyss she had to crawl out of to know of self-love let alone to have the courage to allow herself  to experience it.
“Yet, here I am. Celebrating for myself that, in fact, my vulnerability is giving me back every inch of power that has ever been taken away from me. So instead of any judgement of how you think I should express myself about my life journey, could I submit for your consideration that you get to know me. As told by me. “
“Maybe you would see more than a ‘respectful girl who is now showing her thighs’ and maybe the thought of a woman who has survived terrible hurt but has fought to restore her self-love in a healthy and balanced way could occur to you.  Cheers to everybody fighting with everything they have to have the life that they want – a life that places emphasis on the wellness of our spirit being too. “

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. Celebrating for myself that, in fact, my vulnerability is giving me back every inch of power that has ever been taken away from me. So instead of any judgement of how you think I should express myself about my life journey, could I submit for your consideration that you get to know me. As told by me. Maybe you would see more than a ‘respectful girl who is now showing her thighs’ and maybe the thought of a woman who has survived terrible hurt but has fought to restore her self-love in a healthy and balanced way could occur to you. 🦋 Cheers to everybody fighting with everything they have to have the life that they want – a life that places emphasis on the wellness of our spirit being too. ❤️ #ShakingAsIPost #NoMatterHowSlowly #HeartIsRacing #FightingEveryday #Growing #TrulyBlessed 🕯
