Dear Aunty Lisa,
I am writing to you seeking advice as a troubled Zimbabwean woman. Recently, I caught my husbɑnd and my sister in a compr0mising situation. I walked into our bedr00m and found them both with their pɑnts down. I was in shock and didn’t know what to do. I confronted them both and they were both very apologetic, but I am struggling to cope with this betrayal.
I really need your advice on how to move forward from this. I love my husbɑnd and my sister, but this has broken my heart and I don’t know how to trust them again. I feel like my world has been turned upside down and I don’t know how to pick up the pieces.
Please help me, Aunty Lisa. I need your guidance and wisdom.
A Troubled Woman

Dear Troubled Woman,
I am sorry to hear about the difficult situation you are facing. Discovering your husbɑnd and sister in a compr0mising situation is not only heartbreaking but can also be a huge betrayal of your trust.
Firstly, you need to take some time to process your emotions and thoughts before deciding what steps to take. It’s important to communicate with your husbɑnd and sister about how you feel, and let them know the impact of their actions on your relɑtionship with them. Be honest with them about your feelings.
It’s also important to seek professional help, either through counseling or therapy, to help you navigate through this difficult time. A therapist can help you to work through your emotions and help you to heal.
You need to decide what you want to do in regards to your relɑtionship with your husbɑnd and sister. It’s important to remember that forgiveness is a process and it may take time for you to heal. You may need to ask for time and space to sort out your thoughts on what you want to do.
Remember that you are not alone and there is help out there for you. Keep the lines of communication open, take your time, and seek the guidance and support you need.
Wishing you all the best,
