Ayanda Borotho, Isibaya actress, took to social media to share some words of wisdom with her female followers. She advised women to be themselves and stop pretending to be something they're not to the men in their lives and hearts.
Ayanda Borotho, known for playing the role of Phumelele Zungu, the down-to-earth wife of Mpiyakhe in popular TV series, Isibaya, recently gave some priceless advice to her female fans.
Ayanda called on women to stop wearing what she calls the wife material facade, and be themselves.
She took to social media to share this message with women, hoping to inspire them to embrace who they are, not who they think they have to be.
Ayanda said that women mould themselves into what they think wife material should be, and then the men are disappointed when that is not the woman he's married to after a few months.
We mould ourselves into a society box that defines what a 'wife material' woman is. Then he marries the wife you present before him. Meanwhile, this is not all of who you are and sometimes none of it is all you.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Ayanda warned that this kind of pretending will cause trouble in a marriage.
So you capture the man only to find you can't sustain the act and you want to be yourself. He's mad because his wife is changing, you're mad because he wants to control you or make you into something you're not when the truth is he wants the wife you presented but it was never you in the first place. He married the facade.
The actress wants women to just be themselves and stop this facade.
These are the choices we have had to make for centuries. To be everything else but ourselves just so we can fit the shoe left for us to wear. No more.
Valuable pearls of wisdom from someone who clearly means well.
