During a candid Instagram Live chat on Tuesday, TV personality and Radio DJ Lerato Kganyago spoke about the reasons she hasn't celebrated her birthday in several years

She said that she chose to not celebrate her birthday for several years after her best friend  died on the same day.

"It was only about three years ago that I could actually face the emotions of the day and choose to accept it as a day of celebration," Lerato said.

She added that she's been hurt so many times in various ways that she's now basically immune to heartache.

"I have overcome so much heartbreak. At times it felt like that pain of losing someone so close to me would never go away. I have been so broken, so now not a lot of things can hurt me.

"I have lost two best friends. I also lost my other best friend last year, Koyo Bala, and I lost my child the year before," Lerato said, referencing her miscarriage in 2015.

She left her fans with some good advice to take to heart.

"I don't want this to be about me. I want you (her fans) to know that no matter what you go through in life, it prepares you for something bigger. It may sound cliché but it is true. You are being prepared for something bigger," Lerato said.
