Isibaya actress and author Ayanda Borotho, who has been on a journey of self-love, has opened up about her body insecurities and why she hated her body for the longest time.

In a caption of a snap of herself, Ayanda admitted it has taken her a long time to accept her body for what it is after hating it for a long time.

“I hated this body. From when I was a child I hated this body. I didn’t like the ‘African pear’ shape and the hips and bums that I knew brought the kind of attention I didn’t like. I hated being sexualized,” she said.

The actress went on to explain how other women would use her body as a weapon to hurt her feelings and confidence. Ayanda said she also resorted to saying “Nasty” and hurtful things to other women as a coping mechanism for the often negative remarks she would get because of her body shape and features.

Ayanda admitted that even though she’s since taken the responsibility to love and embrace her body, she still struggled with insecurities.

“I still struggle with body insecurities. Ask anyone who has had to dress me. Hide this, cover that. Getting to embrace your body is constant work. Today I just wanted to tell you, you’re not alone. Sometimes it’s okay to feel like you’re not enough. As long as you don’t stay there too long,” Ayanda said.
