DJ Zinhle’s book on the art of forgiveness
The entertainer believes that her advice will help women deal with their daily struggles
FORGIVENESS is one the hardest things to learn in life but it is also the best form of love. This is what DJ Zinhle, real name Ntombezinhle Jiyane, talks about in her new book to be released soon titled, Meeting Your Power. In her self-help book, DJ Zinhle talks about relationships and the art of forgiveness. She also talks about how some of her life experiences have helped her to know herself better and grow.
THE IMPORTANCE OF FORGIVENESS
DJ Zinhle also speaks about the importance of forgiveness and sharing this principle with people who are still holding grudges.
“Forgiveness demands a lot. I learnt to forgive when my father passed away. I learnt that not letting go can cause a lot of pain and takes away from you more than anything else,” she says.
“We tend to stay angry at other people while they have already moved on and are living their best lives. This is actually just a waste of energy. Not forgiving basically means you are still angry and holding grudges. It takes away all your energy and you end up not being able to focus on what you are good at.”
ABOUT THE BOOK
She explains that the book is about the life experiences that most women go through.
“It’s a motivational book that specifically targets women from whichever space they are in. The book is about relationships, self-help and forgiveness,” she says. “I have learnt so much through my past relationships and I came across so much pain. With all that I have been through, I had to learn to accept, focus and move on.”
The mother of a two-year-old daughter, Kairo, says that every relationship goes through phases and that is why it can be or cannot be fixed. The self-help book is not just a book on forgiveness, but it also teaches you how to be at peace with yourself.
Zinhle says that she gets a lot of messages from women who seek advice after having been cheated on by their partners.
“They say that I made it look so easy when it was time for me to move on, which was not the case. It was very difficult forgiving my baby daddy after what he had put me through. Their messages encourage me to stand tall. This also motivates me to help those who are facing the same challenges,” she says.
She says she is excited about releasing a motivational book written with the understanding of the African voice.
