Truth. I'm not going to sit with my unhappiness brewing inside me whilst the other party lives their best life. You will know my true feelings— AZANIA ✨ (@Ayoza_) February 10, 2021
Literally me!!!!!😭 I give myself some time process my emotions so I can communicate how I feel in the most effective way— SheaButterBaby (@seh_kana) February 10, 2021
Used to happen to me. I would cry a lot. My ex used to tell me that I'm too emotional and sometimes I would just vulnerably speak to any man who was willing to listen, ruined our relationship. I currently communicate, if nothing changes I keep quiet. Naxesha😕— MakaSunflower🌻👩🏫ThishaWey'ngane. (@PhahlaneLindiwe) February 10, 2021
Communication is key, If I am not happy you will know! People don't like confrontation,they perceive it as though u are attacking them.Why do we bottle things in rather than hash it out?much that we would rather stay upset inside& play pretend that everything’s cool? Nah🙄— Palesa (@Palee_Mokoatle) February 11, 2021
The make-up guru is candid about being in touch with her emotions. Speaking to TshisaLIVE in a podcast, she opened up about the effects fame can have on a star's mental health.
And despite the trials and tribulations of being a public figure, the influencer said she won't be forced to be someone who she is not.
“No, I'm not trying to be anybody else but myself. So I put myself on the platter and I put myself out there and you take it or leave it. If you don't like it, don't eat from this platter, eat from another one. I'm a very raw person and I'm very honest and transparent.”
