Celebrating your friend's achievements in life is a big flex. A young Twitter user, @ThirstySphe, did exactly that recently after he shared a picture of a friend's beautiful new home, which is in the process of being finished off by builders.
In the touching Twitter post, the man explains that his friend, who works as a gardener, only earns R1 200. While it is unclear whether or not he earns that amount daily, weekly or monthly, building your own home is always a great achievement.
The touching post also goes on to explain how his friend, whose name he unfortunately did not mention, also had some drinking problems which led people to doubt his ability to complete the dream of building a beautiful home. See the tweet below.
"I salute my homie! Man builds himself a home earning R1 200 salary from garden services. At first people thought that he will never make it at work due to alcohol problems he faced."
Twitter users who were impressed with the motivational story headed to the comments section to share their thoughts about the wondrous achievement. Many of them asked for advice on how they too could build themselves a home with a small amount of money.
Briefly.co.za contacted the man for a comment but he is yet to respond.
