LETTER: Culture of Blessers not ayoba

2016-06-09 06:00

Let me speak to young women: your body is not a tool to get out of poverty. It is not the Rand, so do not use it as an exchange for any goodies.

There’s no amount of cash that can ever buy you. Some girls loose their virginity because they want to fit in to this flashy/lavish lifestyle, comfort and to prove their beauty.

Your beauty is not a ticket to success. Beauty is a brain, how you conduct yourself and how you use your logic.

Do not sacrifice your temple (body) to any “blesser”. There is only one Blesser, and that is God the Almighty. Get up, stand up, dream, plant positive seeds, then your standing will pay off, dreams will come true and positive fruits will be reaped. The most of all, believe in yourself.
