Amanda Trenfield made headlines in 2022 after detailing the emotional saga in a memoir entitled, "When A Soulmate Says No."

According to the New York Post, the 46-year-old author was branded a "self-destructive sociopath". This was after she described how she ended her 14-year marriage to the father of her children due to an electric encounter with a hunky man known only as Jason.

"I am proud of how I continue to navigate my life, respecting and honouring those closest to me,” the author declared in an Instagram post.

She added:

"I continue to stand in my power, my truth and embrace my vulnerability and my strength as an imperfect but always evolving human.”

Trenfield's bombshell book caused outrage upon its release last May. At the time, she described her encounter with her soulmate Jason, which took place while she was at a dinner party with her husband.

“As I settled into my seat, I looked up and immediately lost my breath. When our eyes met, there was an instant familiarity that ran deeper than water-cooler chat. These eyes had locked before. Twelve years earlier. His name was Jason. I hadn’t forgotten," Trenfield wrote.

For one woman, breaking the norm has been a trend in her life. YouTuber, Fumi Desalu, penned an emotional post on LinkedIn, which has since gone viral and shared on all social media platforms.

The post encourages girls not to conform to the standards and timelines society has set out for others. This includes getting married and having a baby before 30. For Desalu, everything she did was done after 40, and she kept achieving her dreams even after 50.

Desalu said:

"Everything has happened to me later in life, and I have a funny feeling there's more to come, so every day I pray that God gives me long life."
