“I don’t take your love for granted. I never know how to react to such pure emotion because this industry has forced me to put my guard up and toughen up in so many ways. No one is as strong as they look.  But moments like these melt and chip away at that icy wall that’s built up over the years,” – she wrote.

She went on to explain that it’s moments of vulnerability that really show strength.

“With you and God, I’m stronger. Thank you for loving me with my many imperfections and with no promise that I’ll always make you proud. It doesn’t go unnoticed,” – Pearl Thusi added.
