What It’s Really Like Living In South Africa

Many of you who actually are South African might have different views on living in this country. Being a “coloured” woman in this country-  I have experienced a lot more than any young woman should but that’s a story for another time, not that I am saying just because of my race I have experienced harder issues , please don’t be offended because that’s not what I am saying at all.

South Africa has got to be one of the most beautiful countries in the world , especially my city Cape Town has been nominated so many times for one of the top cities in the world, with gorgeous Table Mountain being the back drop of the city, it’s hard not to fall in love. But like all countries South Africa has it’s down fall and many times I feel like escaping this country and finding a new home , a new country, a new job where I am able to earn better money to sustain myself.

I have been through so many rough patches and hardships trying to make a decent living here, but decent jobs are hard to come by and if you do get a job the salary is crap and you can hardly get by with month to month expenses – while the government is using all tax payers money and living the high life, children are getting shit education, people are homeless and so many are starving – this really upsets me…

Don’t get me wrong I love my country , but I am going to get to a point where I just want more out of life and more for my children someday – If you aren’t rich in this country you can forget about getting a decent education or medical care.

Being a South African is a tough life, it does make you a stronger person – I just simply want more, better opportunities and a better life.

PS: Sorry about the little rant I am just so frustrated at how things are being run in my country rich are getting richer and people like me are being taken advantage of and working for shit pay I also apologise if this might have offended anyone but these are my views and I am entilted to share my opinions!
