A new day is upon us and so is a new hashtag that South Africans are using to express themselves. Hundreds of locals have been using the hashtag #MyFamlyOnceSaid to speak about the things that they were told by their beloved family.
While some families offered words of advice about life, careers, and relationships, other families have told their loved ones lies, sold them dreams and also broke their hearts with their choice of words.
While some were absolutely ridiculous and somewhat hilarious, others were quite sad. Briefly.co.za explores some of the various interesting things locals were told by their family members. Read them below:
"My grandmother warned me about quiet men, I never listened. Got burned twice. #MyFamilyOnceSaid"
"#MyFamilyOnceSaid you should abort that baby. What a joke!"
"#MyFamilyOnceSaid my boyfriend at the time is stingy cos he only brought food for me. Like... What was he meant to do though?"
"#MyFamilyOnceSaid never settle for a single mother or a woman beyond 26 yrs old. Single mothers and ladies beyond 30 are miserable and bitter."
"#MyFamilyOnceSaid yeka abafana they won't do anything for you in life... Yet my dad bought my mom a house and my uncle bought his wife a car."
