To all the teenage mothers out there!

By Pamela Kekana

We all know that no one is perfect and we cannot change what has happened to us, or turn back the clock.

Let us stop blaming ourselves about what happened in the past, let us rather try and move on with our lives. I know this because I am teenage mother myself, but I promise myself that no matter how hard it is, even though I would fall ten times, I would keep on pushing until I get what I want and all I need.

Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to stop taking care of yourself, you still have to hold your head up high and look good, you don’t have to let yourself go!

Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to bury yourself in the sand, lying to yourself that it’s the end of the world, it is not. You can go on; you still have your dreams to pursue.

In life, I have realized that to become a better person, you will go through hard times, all you can do is FACE THOSE OBSTACLES!

I want you to know this:

You are a Dame,

You are a powerful outstanding woman,

You are a very determined woman,

A woman with a voice,

A woman who takes time to fall, very brave and humble,

That is an inspiring Woman!
