Socialite Vanessa Chettle pens down emotional letter to daughter
Be smart my daughter
In the letter seen by Pulselive.co.ke, Vanessa urges her daughter not to depend on people so much even if it is family as their betrayal will burn her bitterly.
Chettle who once featured in the local reality show Nairobi Diaries asks her daughter to be smart adding that she will have her back if anyone breaks her heart.
“Dear sweet Daughter of mine,In this life tomorrow is not promised so I write u this letter hoping it can guide you once you begin to learn about rights & wrongs.”“FAMILY- I have introduced you to the entire family, these are your people but be fooled not because even though blood is thicker than water, betrayal from them will burn u bitterly. Respect is all I can advise you to have, do not depend on them 100% chances are they won't come thru for you like you'd expect 'blood' to. Know your people, love your people, help your people but do not lose yourself amongst your people. Only funerals, weddings & babies temporarily bring these people together. You are just but your parents burden, stand-alone & be strong!”
“FRIENDS- They come & go. The realest ones in life you will only know after a long time, this will be after overcoming many obstacles that life throws, fights ,growing up, growing apart, reconnecting, emotions, disappointments, distance etc. It'll take time & lessons but you'll make one or two good ones in your lifetime. So don't be quick to share your secrets or declare "BFF". LOVE- First of all u are free to love freely be it boy or girl.The boys love to play games, So don't be too Eazy to get & don't try too hard to impress them either. Girls are trouble, if you decide to date one be smart bcoz as a female yourself u are aware of just how cunning we can be. Think like a woman, but understand the mind of a man too. In short #SelfLove comes first & the rest can follow. If anyone breaks your heart Mamas gonna break their neck!”
Cherutto also goes on to advise her daughter to have faith in God as she does as well as not to put all focus on education & money; instead live life, take risks, explore, gain wisdom, knowledge through mistakes and experience.
“GOD- I believe in a higher deity than all of us humans. I believe in angels too & I believe you are mine specially sent.Faith can move mountains despite life's difficulties we sleep better knowing there's a higher being watching over, guiding us & taking care of tomorrow & the unknown.So if you choose to believe, believe in God. And do good because it comes back around (Karma)”. “DON'Ts - Don't ever think looks are everything, you gotta be beautiful from inside out. Don't put all focus on education & money. Live life, take risks & explore & gain wisdom & knowledge through mistakes & experience. Lastly DON'T u ever doubt that I LOVE YOU!”
