Rev Jacqueline who churches at Purpose Center Church in Kenya has advised the youth to stop stressing themselves beyond their limit to please the people they are surrounded with.
“We are putting a lot of pressure on younger people. There are people who will hire a car for the weekend just to be seen driving so that people can see that they have a car.”
According to her, she initially planned on getting married at age 38 but she wasn’t compelled when her dream failed to materialize because she not living life to please anybody.
“I am 52 years old, still single and with no children. I am alive and that’s critical. I had a goal to get married by 28, I am 52 now and still single, I didn’t die or lose anything. Learn to be flexible with goals that you can’t control, I can’t control someone coming into my life,” she said.
Reverend Jacqueline was however quick to add that she is not against goal-setting but such goals must be realistic and not meant to please anyone.
