Phumeza on surviving without her late mom, gogo and great-grandmother
Phhumeza Mdabe reflects on her life, especially about life without her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
The actress poured out her heart on Instagram, speaking about the strength of her mothers.
“The older I get, the more I feel the spirits of the warrior of women surrounding me. My mother, my grandmother, my great grandmother. I didn’t have the privilege of meeting them physically and didn’t spend sufficient time with my mother either who passed when I was 15. But I’ve heard so much about their strength and tenacity, specifically my grandmother whom I believe is my guardian Angel,” she wrote.
She further made it known that they have a way of communicating with her, especially on days when she feels low.
“On days when I feel like I don’t have the strength, something always says, ‘you can do this, you can figure this out’, it’s always, ‘I hear the problem, I need a solution and fast’. True to these women, they always found a way.”
Despite not having them by her side physically, Phumeza belives they are still with her.
“I always get a little sad when I think that one never got the chance to experience the energy of these women. But man, I’m so lucky that even on the other side, they are with me. ”
“This year alone has taught me so much! Life is tough. It’s survival of the fittest. As long as one takes a breath in the morning, it’s another day to try and take all the lessons our spirit selves are here for. Not to chase things that we’ll leave here. But to live in the hearts and memories of those souls who connected deeply with our souls. Like our children. To love as hard we can. To leave legacies. To say, I was here.”
