She continued and shared that she’s heartbroken but is “choosing to face the pain”…
“I am tempted to run into the shadows and hide, only to return to the light when I have regained my strength enough for me to say, “Whatever, my life is better this way.”
and ended her message by encouraging her followers to not run from their hurt.
“But I am reminded that the magnitude of the pain I am feeling is equal to the measure of my capacity for love. And so, I am choosing to face the pain, cultivating the courage to meet my life exactly as it is, and trusting that this too shall pass. […] Let’s face our pain so we don’t spread it.”

“We just click!” she captioned a since-deleted video of herself and Masekela in color-coordinated outfits. “@selema #thisismylove #nuffsaid,” she added.
