Phumeza Mdabe comprehends this truth intimately, particularly as she recently rekindled a connection with her father.
Abandoned at birth, her father displayed no interest in being a part of her life. The accomplished actress and TV personality narrated her poignant story on the television show “Abandoned.”
Serving as the host, Phumeza utilized the final episode to embark on a personal quest for her father.
Having lost her mother during Grade 10, her stepfather, who wholeheartedly embraced the role of both parents, stepped in to care for Phumeza and her three siblings.
Her biological father disowned her at birth, and their paths barely crossed, with only one meeting during her teenage years.
Phumeza, seeking a connection to her German roots for her children, discovered her father’s address and decided to visit his house in Eastgate, Johannesburg.
Unfortunately, the encounter was met with hostility, and her father showed no interest in meeting her.
“I’ll forever have a void about that part of myself. To cope, I’ve learnt to forget about him and shut him out of my thoughts,” she expressed.
In a surprising turn of events, it appears that Phumeza and her father have reconciled.
She recently shared an emotional video with him, captioned as beautiful. A few days later, Phumeza conveyed a powerful message about the importance of forgiveness.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but it’s just coming out of my fingertips as I type. Maybe also, I’m still coming out of the bubble of meeting with the man who was a part of bringing me here,” she said.
She underscored the significance of forgiveness when one is wronged, advising people to sincerely apologize if needed.
“May God always keep my heart as it is. May I never change because of what life throws at me.
This is my prayer daily. It’s so important to look into your own heart and be able to recognize if you’re not the one causing others pain and crying foul.
It’s also important to learn to forgive sincerely. Let’s check in on ourselves with God and be honest with ourselves.

It hurts when one realizes that, hey, I’m actually the one who is the bad person here. But once you recognize it and accept it, forgive yourself and do better.
If you can, apologize to the next person, even better. Trust me, you won’t lose an arm.
And if someone apologizes to you, be sincere and forgive and leave it in the past. Let’s work on ourselves to be better. No one is perfect. This way, even the next generation will be and do better.”
