Zoleka Mandela announces split from her husband

Zoleka Mandela has announced her split from her husband, Thierry Bashala, after six years of marriage. In a lengthy post shared on her social media, the star revealed that it took her two years to leave her marriage. This comes a year after Zoleka welcomed her second child with her estranged husband.

She shared in part; “Leaving someone you once loved, for eight long years feels like it completely unhinges your entire life until you realize that it’s sparked self discovery, inner peace and has set you on a path of self love. It’s taken me two years to leave a relationship that no longer serves me, one that has eroded (for far too many years) my self esteem, independence, my mental and emotional state. Over the years, I’ve continued to fall in habit and have tied my sense of worth to things outside of me and placed it in the hands of others.”

She continued; “Leaving someone you once loved, reaffirms your strengths, it leaves you feeling more liberated and forces you to look into yourself and to move on even when you’re more comfortable staying in a relationship that (for the worst part) leaves you feeling invisible and undervalued.”

She ended of saying; “I have left someone that I once loved for eight whole years, because I need to learn to be alone, to work on myself harder than any other relationship, to recognize and accept my weaknesses, to forgive myself and to finally celebrate my FREEDOM.”

Leaving someone you once loved, for eight long years feels like it completely unhinges your entire life until you realize that it’s sparked self discovery, inner peace and has set you on a path of self love. It’s taken me two years to leave a relationship that no longer serves me, one that has eroded (for far too many years) my self esteem, independence, my mental and emotional state. Over the years, I’ve continued to fall in habit and have tied my sense of worth to things outside of me and placed it in the hands of others. Leaving someone you once loved, reaffirms your strengths, it leaves you feeling more liberated and forces you to look into yourself and to move on even when you’re more comfortable staying in a relationship that (for the worst part) leaves you feeling invisible and undervalued … because you have a fear of abandonment and a fear of being alone. I have left someone that I once loved for eight whole years, to live a life that is more true to me, to shift the power back from the relationship I have long left, back to me. I have left someone that I once loved for eight whole years, because I need to learn to be alone, to work on myself harder than any other relationship, to recognize and accept my weaknesses, to forgive myself and to finally celebrate my FREEDOM. #ZolekaGotHerGrooveBack #ZolekaMandela #NeverTooLateToRewriteYourLifeStory
