2017 i was shattered in ways I could never explain, 2 major deaths of my loved ones, infidelity and other things. 2018 was all about picking up my broken pieces and rebuilding. 2019 am simply ready for a new beginning....

In life, we hurt, we make mistakes, we forgive, we move on. But, most of all and through it all we learn. Thank You 2018, i still have my breath. #Grateful #Blessed #Thankful Share with me your life story of 2018.

Zari responded to each and every comment consoling her followers and below are some of the saddest untold stories of 2018.

mbabazilucky Am the kind who forgets my pain easily, but my last son going through multiple surgeries was tough..2017 to 2018 was rather rough but Allah pulled me through..The loss of my father many years ago also shattered me..I refuse to break though, I was built like a rock..Happy holidays Zari, you are an amazing mother and sister to your siblings.

titusmutugi @zarithebosslady..... My 2017, I lost my job as a news anchor at a local Kenyan station, I joined politics vying as a member of county assembly though I lost the chance. Friends runaway from me until I was installed back to journalism last months. But I'm a fight I give up not. 2019 is my year of prosperity. Cheers for good life health and wealth

joselyne_kayima I want nothing to do with this year, as soon as Radio "RIP" passed on in Feb, exactly 5 days later I lost my best friend Brian who was my heaven and now everything can never be the same, I keep on telling myself he will one day walk into office, deep down i know it wont happen, but its my way of consoling myself.
