It is no secret that things can get pretty messy during long-drawn divorce rows, particularly in South Africa, which is one of the countries in the world with the highest divorce rates.
However, a woman who's fresh from cleaning the dirty laundry she "inherited" from a less than ideal separation is spreading the inspiration.
Heading online, @Vj_Katy notified her followers on Twitter of her welcome revival, having gotten rid of debt that, by all indications, bogged her down for some time.
The tweet read:

The viral tweet attracted nearly 20 000 likes, while it was retweeted more than 1 100 times. Moreover, almost 250 comments flooded the Twitter user's mentions.
Fellow women draw massive inspiration
Briefly News takes readers through some of the awe-inspiring reactions from fellow Twitter users below.
"It's better to be broke as long as you've paid your debts, bought food, full tank of petrol for the whole month to go to work, and paid for the DSTV."
"According to the bible that I read divorce is not allowed because blah blah blah. Congratulations."
"Congratulations sis, I feel like this is motivation. Last month I had 14 accounts to pay - including abo mashonisa. So last month managed to pay off one of them. This month I paid off three, I now left with 10. Hoping and pray God gives me the strength to finish. It's really sad."
Model who married herself set to divorce after 90 days
In recent news reported by Briefly News, hardly three months since 33-year-old Chris Galera made headlines after holding a wedding to get married to herself, it's now emerged that she's gearing up to divorce herself.
Her wedding was held in September this year as she sought to formalise the union between her and herself.
Daily Star reported that the Instagram model has now asked for a divorce from herself as she met someone else whom she hopes to get married to.
At the time of her wedding, Galera said that she had made the uncommon decision because she was tired of being disappointed by men.
She added that she'd come to embrace the feeling of being alone and did not see anything wrong in not having a groom beside her on the wedding day.
