Depression has been a big discussion around Mzansi this past week. Back in 2016, Nomzamo Mbatha lost her cousin to depression. Today is her birthday.
Nomzamo lost her cousin Carla to depression last year and it was by no means easy.
Loss is never easy, especially when someone made the decision to take their own life. With it being just over a year later, the wound is still raw.
Briefly.co.za noticed that today, Nomzamo took to social media to wish her beautiful late cousin a happy birthday. Unlike any other birthday message, this one carries a lot of pain and sadness.
Happy birthday baby girl, we trust your soul is at peace now and that all your sufferings have passed.
When the incident took place, Nomzamo took to social media in a series of 17 tweets.
In the tweets, she told the story of her loss and a girl who made a nasty assumption that Carla was not loved by her family and that is why she took her life. This was obviously very untrue.
With HHP’s recent passing due to depression, the topic needs to be discussed and understood. Depression is so real and it needs to be taken seriously.
