- Somizi Mhlongo learnt a valuable lesson recently when asking friends to help out with his new talkshow
- While Pearl Thusi and DJ Zinhle jumped at the opportunity, Somzizi realised not all are that helpful and willing
- Somizi realised he felt a bit self-entitled because no one actually owes him anything
Somizi Mhlongo had a big wake-up call when he recently launched his new show and reached out to people who he thought were his friends.
It is often the most important and trying times of your life that reveal who is really there for you.
Briefly.co.za came across a video in which Somizi poured his heart out and let fans know what he had experienced.
Pearl Thusi and DJ Zinhle were the ones who were there for Somizi, but there have been many who were not.
Getting his new talkshow up-and-running, Somizi reached out to a few industry friends and quickly learnt that not everyone is willing to help as he expected.
“Some friends came on board, you know those people that you know [understand] that it's a give-and-take relationship. Then some just declined, like without an explanation. Some explained but I found myself now thinking, 'Oho but I did this and that for you and now you can't return the favour?' ”
Coming to his senses after getting pretty touched by the situation, Somzi realized that no one actually owes him anything.
This sense of self-entitlement that he felt was overwhelming and something Somizi has realised needs to stop.
You should never do something for someone expecting something in return. Somizi shared his realisation in the hope of helping others going through something similar.
