Ayanda Borotho opens up on why she used to hate her body

Ayanda Borotho took to her social media to what she has gone through with her own body.

The star is known to be a curvy woman but she has decided to tell her followers that she never liked her body since she was at a tender age.

Ayanda told her followers that it was okay to have bad days because there was always light at the end of the tunnel.

She said she never liked her breast because it was too small and the interesting part was that some people around her always tell her how they wish they had a breast like hers while others laughed at her small boobs.

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

She also used the opportunity to let others who may share similar feelings about their bodies know they are not alone.

Read her full caption here: “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 sexualised. Other women would hurt me when they pointed out how it was the bum and hips that attracted the men. That I had the “right assets”. I hated that people would say they wish they had smaller breasts like mine. I wanted bigger breasts. So much so that I contemplated a boob job (nothing wrong with that). And then there were those who laughed that I had small breasts. Until I learnt a come back that says “at least after 3 babies they don’t sag..I still have virgin boobs.” BUT even that was nasty. It was however my defence mechanism. The truth is after 3 babies, I can tell you it’s hard to love your body. Cellulite, stretch marks…the works but I realise now that what I hated was more the entitlement of opinions about my body from other people. Sometimes it doesn’t take having children. It is the unkindness that the spits out so that we can maintain a standard that they themselves can’t. But I also have to own the responsibility of answering or taking on those opinions and plastering the negative words on my body. I still struggle with body insecurities. Ask anyone who has had to dress me. Hide this, cover that..

Ayanda concluded: “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.”
