Diep City actress Nozuko Ntshangase opens up about the emotionally challenging week she’s had which led her to do some deep self-introspection. I’ve had an emotionally challenging week and as I was doing some self-work and journaling I realized that you girl – why do you need external validation? Why do you not feel enough? I asked myself that question,” she says.

“I really wanted to get to the bottom of it, ukuthi, actually where does this come from and how can I heal that part of me that even when I’ve received external validation it still doesn’t fulfill my heart?

“I still don’t feel fulfilled and I’m like why do you not feel enough and why do you not receive compliments? Where does is this thing coming from?

And as I was trying to heal myself by searching for videos that can sort of give me the light I came across this video on shadow work. I’ve been trying to do shadow work for some time and I hadn’t really gone deep in understanding what actually is shadow work and how can I best use it?

Nozuko discovered that a part of her identity now is embedded in her childhood trauma.

“One of the exercises the lady in the video suggested is one of childhood trauma review. So part of your shadow self is made up of your childhood trauma. Other things form your shadow self. But part of it is patterns and mindsets that were developed from when you were a kid,” she explains.

This was also brought to her attention by a friend a few days ago.

“A few days back a friend of mine asked how was my childhood. I don’t really remember much of it but I don’t remember feeling good about myself. I don’t really remember feeling happy or fulfilled or feeling loved.
