Katlego Danke opened up to her Instagram followers that she wasn’t a fan of herself until her career blossomed. The Isidingo (the need) actress said that during her childhood, she did not take pictures of herself neither did she enjoy seeing her image in the mirror.
Today I’m reminded to love myself. I #flashback to a time I didn’t even want to see or take a single photograph of myself. I have a gap in my childhood of no pictures because I didn’t like seeing my image. #flashback to moving into a house without a single mirror in it because I didn’t want to see my own image even when getting dressed in the morning. Thank God for giving me the career I have because through it I’ve had to learn to embrace myself. And really scrutinize myself. And eventually love all of what I come with- good and bad. And today I’m a firm believer in travelling the journey to ultimate fulfillment in life through self-love. 🙏🏽 Happy Self-Love Journey everyone and Happy Friday. #justhuman #selflove #embraceyourself #loveyourself #KatlegoDanke
