The Minister's Wife

Author : Muntuza

Genre :  N/A

Description :   This is a story about happy endings. My happy ending. What is a happy ending anyway? Is a happy ending when a prince rescues a princess in distress like in snow white? Maybe, but not it this story. This is a story about self-discovery and understanding self-worth. Like a snake I had to shed the old skin and develop new one. Through self-discovery I found my inner strength. A strength only few woman possesses. I got shunned by the community and other woman for choosing me. You see, I had to be selfish and chose myself. Like many I could have stayed in a loveless marriage. I could have stayed until I was left being nothing but a shell of a human being. I could have stayed until I left in a box because 'lebitla la mosadi ke bogadi' because 'emendweni kuya bekezelwa'. I could have stayed for sake of my kids. I could have stayed because I wanted my kids to grow up in a home with both a mother and a father. But I would have robbed my kids’ true happiness because I was not happy myself. I would have taught my daughter that it’s ok to stay where you are not loved and appreciated. I would have taught my son it’s ok to ill-treat a woman because she will never leave. But I became selfish and walked away. My selfishness became a selfless act because it gave both my kids a lesson of all time, ‘never stay where you are not loved or appreciated’. I changed the status quo and I packed my bags n left. It was not easy but I did it. It was not easy because I doubted and questioned my decision a few times. Some nights were more difficult than others. Some days were longer than others. Some looks were nastier than others. Some questions were more hurtful than others. Today I stand tall because I have rediscovered who I am. I have rediscovered my strength and sing with Zahara at the top of my voice when she says 'Strength of a woman comes from within. You may get her down today, she will surely come around’ honestly speaking I have. If you are looking for a story where a girl meets guy and fall deeply in love, a story about them getting married and living happily ever after. Please look next door because this is not it. This is a story about me finding myself, finding happy ending, rediscovering who I am and where I want to be. This is a story about WOMANDLA.
