What It’s Really Like Living In South Africa

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!

      It’s okay Karen, I will probably not be in this country in the next 5 years if things don’t get any better

    Sorry to hear this – I’ve know a few people from South Africa who’ve said similar things – that it’s wonderful only if you’re rich. I hope things start getting better soon! Xx

    I do agree… Here isn’t enough great job oppertunities for ANY young woman really. Which is sad . And it’s scary … As I know especially with my son , in a few years there will be hardly ANY jobs for him .

      Thanks Lynette, I thought I was the only one getting so upset and frustrated about this

  3. October 14, 2015 / 11:34 am

    Ugh I can totally relate to this. To me it seems like only the cream of the crop gets to amount to anything while the rest are just stuck! It is incredibly frustrating! But as long as you feel you want more and as long as you know that more awaits you; I think you are on the right track. I have been trying to be more positive lately, trying to live for me and not for my next pay check so that I can buy all the material things the media brainwashes me into thinking I need. I am making the most out of my situation… All of us are.

    It helps knowing that you are not alone, so thank you for this post Candice!

      Thanks Nihaad it definitely does make me feel better to know I am not alone – things are just out of hand and I can only hope and pray my children gets treated better, It really is hard being positive as much as I try things just aren’t going as I would like

    I’m a Malaysian living in a country called Brunei, an elitist country, I’d say. Non-locals get no privileges while Bruneians are given free medical care, free tuition, and the utmost care a monarch can provide. Foreigners are thrown to the sidelines and are left to watch opportunities (that may as well be thrown and showered upon locals) being taken for granted. While it’s not completely similar to your situation, I’d say it’s pretty darn close. I get annoyed at this sometimes, too, but my plan of action has been to work hard towards leaving this country which might as well be my own (I’ve lived here all my life, damn it!) but on paper, is just another country I can tread foot on but not thrive in.

    This post has been extremely insightful, perhaps it’s an ignorance kind of thing, but I had no conscious thought that the South African economy and life are geared this way. Regardless, thank you for sharing this, your frustration is completely understandable.

    Good luck, Candice!

      Thank May! I am so sorry for what you are going through I am glad you can relate- it’s horrible, I really don’t want to leave but if I really need to then I will last thing I want is for my kids to suffer some day its unfair

    The same I can say about Ukraine. It’s so hard to live here. Here’s not so expensive flats and houses as in better European countries (but for simple ukranians it’s almost unreal to buy it), but other things mostly costs more, while to people pay almost nothing.
    I had health problems from my birth and I receive a pension every month. This is so littlle money that it’s not unreal to pay for flat or even food for a month… How good that I have parents, I don’t know what do people that have the same pension and haven’t close people to help. It’s unreal to live with that money… At least, it motivates me to move and reach my goals.
    Any ways, those mountains on the photo are perfect!!!

    • October 14, 2015 / 1:02 pm

      Aw hun I am sorry – atleast we can relate and it does open my eyes and make me see that we are not the only country going through this.

      Ps: Yes thats my view most days

  7. October 14, 2015 / 12:31 pm

    I agree with some things. South Africa is a beautiful country, there is no denying that. And we have come a really long way from apartheid, although there are still remnants of it, be it racism or unequal opportunity. I believe that our government is not the government that fought for freedom, not the government that people believed in. They are now a government of taking advantage of tax payers, a government of nepotism and corruption. Because of the increasing gap between the rich and poor, poverty and crime is increasing. I was previously disadvantaged, and experienced not being able to sit on this bench, or not being able to go into this lift, or this restaurant or to this school. But I appreciate how far we have come, how we have a mostly free country, a mostly unrestricted country, a mostly undiscriminating country. We still have a far way to go, and unless government cleans up its act, we will not get there. But we have come a long way too.

    • October 14, 2015 / 1:04 pm

      I definitely agree! My parents suffered alot and gave up so much because my gran parents were different races and one had to give up their race basically to be with the other, the struggles are harsh and finding decent living is tough especially when I wasn’t able to study and had to work to take care of family – I would love to study part time hopefully soon, this country really needs to change.

    this is exactly why my family left Brazil 10 years ago. And look at it now, even worse than it was 10 years ago.

    Bad education, bad transport links, bad health care are all characterises of the Brazilian life. The government is ever more corrupt and it makes me sad to see everyone I love still living there, struggling with safety and all of the above. Good luck Candice, I hope you get out soon!

    • October 14, 2015 / 1:06 pm

      Thanks hun! Your parents made a great choice leaving – we are similar to Brazil in many ways, I definitely want to do my kids that favour and leave when I can to give them a better future

    Great post, one that I can relate to a lot. Despite the bad media portrayal, Romania is such a beautiful country, with so many gorgeous places. But the education, public health, transportation- everything is crap. After finishing Uni I moved to London and it`s the best decision I`ve ever made. I still miss my home and visit regularly, but I`m in a place when I can have a decent living. Plus, I`m planning on having kids in a few years, I want them to have all the opportunities that I missed.

  14. December 4, 2018 / 7:44 pm

    One of my best friends is half South African although German/Dutch South African. I also knew a Caucasian south African guy. From the sound of it even they are willing to admit that things are still not fair in South Africa and that the country is still entirely segregated – I do not know much about South Africa except for what they have told me – sounds like a really beautiful country but one that still sadly has some problems. You should never apologize for your experience either – it is society that needs to change so that we can all live happily regardless of our skin color, gender, etc.

  17. December 4, 2018 / 7:44 pm

    I’m so glad someone actually spoke about it because this has literally been my feelings for the past month (after my neighbours had a violent break-in). There are real problems that affect the livelihood of the future generation of this country but many people choose to go about their days until they die. This is a frustration that I feel I’ll harbour until the day I die because I believe nothing will change between now and then and that’s so sad to admit.

    The people in power are selfish and self-serving so they don’t care about the rest of the population living in poverty and fear thus nothing will be done about it.

    Nonetheless I choose to look at the positives and experience the good things Cape Town has to offer and most importantly to spend time with my family with whom I feel safe.

    Thank you for this post. You have no idea how much this means to me. Not everything is about beauty products reviews and the next summer trend and I’m glad you blogged about this. You can add one more loyal follower to your list 🙂

  18. November 30, 2018 / 1:03 pm

    Sigh, totally able to relate to this, Candice, I mean have to read about the corruption of Malaysia’s Prime Minister? It’s not much different in my home country and while the majority of Malaysians are peaceful, there are some who is trying to bring racism into the country. Migrating to Canada has been one of the best thing that happened in my life, I never felt more at home. Sorry to hear what you’re going through, one of the senior managers in my ex company is from SA and he said pretty much the same thing as you. I hope you’ll find a better life soon. xx

    I’ve heard a lot about South Africa and even though I’ve never been it does look beautiful and country you should be proud of (which you are) but I understand that it’s difficult too and it’s good for you to share your opinions with us – we are all here to help each other and support one another.

    It’s good for you to get out there and do more for yourself, if you feel like you’re stuck then you should move (if you can) and find somewhere you’ll be happy and like you said have a better life for you and your family (when the time comes)

    I think everywhere has the same issues just some places there’s more opportunity and better health care like you mention which is very important, don’t feel like you need to apologise, it’s your blog and you have the right to write about what you want and feel! 🙂

    I’ve visited SA a while back and it’s a beautiful country indeed 🙂 Hope things will get better and better <3

    Sorry to hear about that! I can totally relate with the bad healthcare. In Estonia the healthcare is the same way 🙁

    Such a shame that even some of the most beautiful places in the world can be having such major hardships like this 🙁 As a planet in general we really need to get our priorities straight, these days everyone just wants to get to the top without caring who’s lives they ruin in the process. Hopefully things will look up one day :C

    I’m so sorry to hear it’s not a great place to live. You’re very young though so I’m sure you can make a life for yourself somewhere else eventually.

    I’ve heard a lot about South Africa and even though I’ve never been it does look beautiful and country you should be proud of (which you are) but I understand that it’s difficult too and it’s good for you to share your opinions with us – we are all here to help each other and support one another.

    It’s good for you to get out there and do more for yourself, if you feel like you’re stuck then you should move (if you can) and find somewhere you’ll be happy and like you said have a better life for you and your family (when the time comes)

    I think everywhere has the same issues just some places there’s more opportunity and better health care like you mention which is very important, don’t feel like you need to apologise, it’s your blog and you have the right to write about what you want and feel! 🙂

    I’m so sorry it hasn’t always been that easy. I’ve been to SA once before but I obviously wasn’t able to properly explore the country since I was doing some volunteering work. I hope things will change for the better <3
