- A Nigerian man has shared on social media some important life lessons using his family as a case study
- He said his mum got married with an SSCE at 22 but became a barrister at the age of 44
- The Twitter user said that one's dreams are valid at any age provided there is the right support
A Nigerian man has stated that age is inconsequential in the actualization of one's dreams so far as long as one is given all the needed support.
@TheIgboWolf shared on Twitter that his mum got married at the young age of 22 with only an SSCE and a clerk job at a bank.
He went on to reveal that she stopped bearing children at 30 and pursued a diploma at LASU at 32.
@TheIgboWolf recalled how some female folks made fun of his parents, particularly his mum about how she struggled with going for classes and keeping up with work.
She eventually became a barrister at 44. Some of those women who mocked his mum started school two years later.
He added how his dad was understanding and supportive of his mum all through the challenging period.
His post gained traction on social media. While many opined that finding a supportive partner is rare, some disagreed.
"Your dad was supportive. It's rare to find supportive people as partners. People are just getting selfish and egocentric by the day."
"It's not rare pls, infact things have changed most ladies at 22 are graduate,but they are busy with body goals, how to flex nd go to club lol."
"Support is important, but the will and determination comes first. Congrats to her and your family."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man narrated the life lesson he learnt after he got angry with a friend.
The man identified as @Chief_di234 advised Nigerians to always remember that people are going through a lot in life.
According to him, he was angry at a friend for not picking his calls or replying to his messages. He said he got fed up and blocked the friend on social media and stopped calling.
@Chief_di234 explained that he recently found out that the friend had an accident in January and because he had no idea, he was holding a grudge and beefing the friend for almost seven months.
