Money and Sex for Love, not for me!

By Tracey Ndlovu
They say money is the root of all evil, well, from where I’m sitting, it’s true. Money rules over our hearts and we end up obsessed with money and power.
The obsession with money at its worst leads to many of the bad choices we make as young people at times. As girls, we try and impress boys at our school, I have fallen for that trend myself at times.
Some impress boys by sleeping with them. There is this belief that sex will solve all relationship problems – this couldn’t be further from the truth – only peer pressure is at play here and nothing else.
As young people at school we have both good and bad influences in the friends we choose. Our parents want the best for us, but sometimes when poverty hits our families and our parents cannot afford some of the things we think we need as young people, trouble sets-in!!
Poverty at times makes people do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do, circumstances dictate. As young people, let us restrain ourselves from bad behaviour, all in the name of love and money.
Money is the root of all evil, I believe!!
