- A young woman recently headed online to share a heartbreaking post about getting older yet not having achieved any of her goals
- In the post, she writes that she will be 32 this month but is yet to find a job, house of her own or even a healthy relationship
- Unsurprisingly, many South Africans could relate and were soon heading to the comment section to share some of their struggles
Life is not always rainbows and sunshine, in fact for most people, it's hard more than 50% of the time. A young lady, @Thembisile_Q recently headed online to share just how hard life has been for her as she turns 32.
"Turning 32 next month, no house, no car, no husband, no kids. Just me. The kicker in this is I never prepared for this age. I thought I'd be dead by now. Here I am still trying to navigate things I should've done in my 20s. Life is hard," she wrote sadly.
Very soon many South Africans were taking to the comment section to share just how much they could relate to the heartbreaking post as they too have faced many difficulties and are not where they thought they would be.
Read a few of their comments below:
"I'm turning 39 next month. No job, no house, no car, no relationship. I'm approaching the big age with nothing to show for it, and this is the reason why I don't celebrate my birthday."
"I'm turning 39... I have a car, a job a man who every nite we sleep with our backs turned against each other... So yah... Still thankful for the job though."
"I finished my varsity at 24, got married at 25, bought houses and cars at 26. At 30 I had 4 kids. 35 I'm divorced, a single father of 4, no car, taking anti-depressant medication. Life is hard indeed."
In some light-hearted news, Briefly.co.za reported that the road to success is not always an easy one especially for many South Africans who live in the direst circumstances. A young man recently helped other people from poor backgrounds see that where there is a will to succeed there is definitely a way to succeed.
Taking to Facebook Maake Shadrack shared an inspirational post about how he had slept on the floor as a student working hard to obtain a qualification that would catapult him from his poor circumstances to a better life.
"*2 years of sleeping on the floor at 25 Mathivha Street, Mankweng Zone 1, and one year of being a squatter on-campus taught me to never give up in life and continue enduring even when there's no sign of change.
