“My name is Sibulelo Mpilwenhle Manamatela.
Sibulelo, correct me if I’m wrong because I don’t know IsiXhosa too well, roughly translated means ‘thankfulness’ or ‘thank you’- but point is my father was thankful okaaay.
Mpilwenhle means ‘beautiful life.’ Mpilwenhle is my favourite name (don’t call me that if you don’t know me like that lol) but I’ve always loved it because I believe it was prophetic and I know that I will have and have had a beautiful life- not perfect, but insanely beautiful.
Manamatela is my surname AKA my mother’s maiden name and I love it with all of my heart. I’m highkey glad I got it instead of my dad’s surname which is waaay too common. (Zondi, by the way)”
In a recent post she made, she shared her thoughts about self-doubt in her latest post.
According to her, self-doubt is something most of us experience a lot in our lives and it’s no different in motherhood.
Her thoughts were carried in a post she made on her personal social media handle on the popular social media platform, Instagram.

Self-doubt is something most of us experience a lot in our lives and it’s no different in motherhood. We question our decisions and approaches. We ask so many questions in one day, you wonder if there aren’t ‘better’ ways than the ones you’ve chosen. You always have to figure out the right thing to do for your children in your (and their) circumstance; which is different from anyone else-so you can’t really just do what someone else did, right?
This is why it’s important to learn to trust your capabilities and choices even when you are not so certain of yourself. Not only is there manual for this but there’s no one who has lived your life; that means that only YOU will ever truly understand and be able to make the best choices for your circumstances. You can get all the advice in the world but in the end, it’s your own voice that you have to listen to. So rely on your capabilities and let any self doubt be just a passing moment.
I wish you all a good week. ✨”
