Lerato Sengadi Shares Why She Stopped Wearing Her Wedding Ring! Lerato has inspired a generation of women to stand up for themselves, carry on with their lives and build empires for themselves.
After losing her husband HHP, Lerato went through a lot and publicly so. She fought for her dignity and continues to keep the memory of her talented husband alive. Taking to social media recently, Lerato shared the traumatic, sad story of how she ended up not wearing her wedding ring. She started off sharing how strong women are through difficult times.
“A few weeks ago I had something traumatic happen to me. As mundane as it may have seemed it was super shocking and heart breaking. I woke up one morning, got ready for work & as I was putting on my beautiful ring that Motho gave me it literally slid off my finger. Like slid all the way off! My once perfectly fitting, specially selected, symbol of love had now become so big that if I wore it I would definitely lose it. I stood there and looked at my naked ring finger. It hit me like a ton of bricks that I can no longer wear my ring. I already knew that it couldn’t be resized because of the design but the reality of it was so painful to accept. My heart, body, mind & spirit had been battered so much in a short space of time that that moment became a physical manifestation of my reality. My Motho isn’t here. His physical symbol of love could no longer be a daily part of me. Ouch,” Lerato shared.
The PR guru also shared how she cried in front of industry friend rapper Reason whom her husband was also fond of after the sad realization that she would nolonger wear her ring. Thanks to jewellery designer Jenna Clifford, Lerato now has another ring to wear in place of her wedding ring.
