“I am very rich, but still single and childless” – 28-year-old lady cries out over inability to find love and start a family (Details within)

Mbali’s frank discussion about her struggles to find love and build a family brings attention to the societal pressures and expectations often placed on individuals, particularly women, in similar situations.

Her story serves as a poignant reminder of the significance of empathy and compassion when navigating such personal journeys.

Amidst her challenges, Mbali expressed gratitude for the accomplishments in her life, highlighting her career, car, strides in pursuing higher education, and steps toward owning property.

On her social media platform, she raised a thought-provoking query about whether it’s acceptable to aim for more, sparking a meaningful conversation about societal norms and individual ambitions.

In a subsequent post, she shared some of her own accomplishments.

She wrote, “It breaks my heart that at the age of 28, I’ve got no child & I can barely find love that’s secure, I don’t even think at my big age I know how it feels to be loved however, I’m so grateful for Gods’ favour & pray that he gives me the strength to accept what isn’t meant for me”.

She added, “I’ve got a job, I’ve got a car. I’m 2 board exams away from admission, better pay & property. Is it wrong to just yearn for something else?”

@Konke_Worldwide said, “If it’s any consolation I’m 30 & single. Never been in love and don’t have kids. I’m sorry you’re going through those feelings but they will pass trust me. Sometimes social conditioning makes us feel like we are missing out on something or we’re inadequate. It’s not true.”
