Actress Mona Monyane has made it clear that she still believes in love. The former Muvhango actress recently shocked her fans when she announced her separation from her husband, Khulu Skenjana.
Mona didn’t reveal the reasons for the split, only saying they couldn’t continue as a couple. “My husband and I have parted ways. I know this will come as a shock to many and I ask that you continue to believe in love and family. The battles we have met have been difficult to overcome together and I ask that you respect us by not sensationalizing our separation,” she tweeted.
She even posted tweets about relationships and the role of both parties.
In the tweets, she encourages women to put themselves first in relationships because they deserve to be happy. She points out that when in a relationship love alone is not enough to make it work.
Mona also said it takes two to tango and if one party is not as invested in the relationship, then things could go pear-shaped.
Despite being single again, the mother of two encourages people to fall in love as she’s still a believer.
In a recent Instagram clip, Mona shared how men should court women like her. And in her signature style, it was hilarious.
“I have experienced love in its purest form as well as faced the fact that love alone is not enough to endure the challenges that come with making a relationship work. If both parties are not equally yoked in their efforts to preserve the relationship, cracks will start to grow . . .” she said.
“I still believe in love. I will always believe in love. Love is a phenomenal part of the human experience! I just realise that it is the love we have for ourselves that should shine brighter than the love we have for others, otherwise we risk losing ourselves in them...”
“I am highly cognitive of the fact that I am a spiritual being having a human experience, it is what informs how I navigate this realm. I function on a different level of consciousness entirely. I am here to do my spiritual work, fulfill my purpose and ascend when I have succeeded,” she tweeted.
“As women we need to stop negotiating whether or not we deserve to put ourselves first, to not tolerate nonsense, to centre our happiness. The joy of the man you choose to love should not take priority over your own wellbeing. You are equally entitled to live YOUR best life.”
