Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has taken to social media to share a piece of advice to young folks who get depressed after seeing photos from expensive trips taken by celebrities.
According to Tonto, many of those trips took years of planning and so, people should not be deceived by the flashy things posted online.
In her words;
“A lot of you come on social media to see people who are having a great time with exotic trips and vacation, and you slip into depression, what you don’t know is that many people plan and save towards their trips. Some people plan a year before or even two years. A beautiful photo that shows a vacation might be a result of saving for many years. Don’t be deceived into thinking it’s that easy.
It is not. Even the flashy cars and houses and phones you see with rich people, they plan and save towards it. They won’t tell you, all you know is that they just got a house. Go and ask them how long it took to save up, and the sacrifices they made to gather up the finances.“See, it’s never really too rosy for people as it seems on social media. Just keep working hard. Save for important things. Save to spoil yourself”.
