Many people have big dreams of moving to another city or country and making a big and successful life for themselves there. While it would be great, it doesn't always happen for everyone - a young man recently found that out the hard way.
Taking to Twitter, @sivenatt (Nathi) explained how he had moved to Gauteng with big dreams and a hopeful heart. After trying to make a living, he was left with no job, no friends and not even a place to lay his head.
"I came to Gauteng, I tried. I want to go home now. I am not the first one who tried and things didn't work out. Everyone switched up on me. I don't even have a place to stay. It's time I go home and gather strength next to my aunt."
Moved South Africans were left touched by the heartbreaking short story. Many of them headed to the comment section where they shared all sorts of advice, similar experiences and even job opportunities with the hopeless young man.
Read a few of their comments below.
"If you wanna explore the world or maybe try it for couple of months tell me, will hook you up with some agency."
"Took a risk and went to Cape Town last year, 3 months in things got bad, got beaten up, robbed and landed in hospital even with an infection from an open wound, went home after being discharged. This year tried the same thing but with Bloemfontein, it is going well, don't give up."
"Went through this in 2018 I had to go home and regroup. 5 years in Gauteng went home with nothing under my name. I felt numb felt like I don't belong... prayer was my only comfort. Thank God for my family... I now sit as a fleet manager for one of the biggest companies in the world."
In other Briefly.co.za news, break-ups are heartbreaking and not always easy to talk about. South African Twitter users however seemed to have no difficulties spilling the tea after the hashtag #DumpedOverPettyThings started trending on Twitter.
Staying true to the theme, locals flooded the timeline with the pettiest reasons why they either dumped or got dumped by someone. While many of the Twitter posts were actually quite sad, a lot of them had tweeps laughing out loud.
Wearing cheap make-up, refusing to give loans, buying the wrong fruit and having bad breath were only a few of the reasons a quite few South African relationships were kicked straight to the curb
