One thing that is very prevalent in our home towns is Jealousy. I can tell you from experience when you live in the village or in the rural area people usually take badly about you and gossip behind your back. It's also hard for these same people to see you come up in life. That's why it's generally believed that when you achieve something in life you shouldn't show off. This is why.
Peoples jealousy can be very bad, sometimes when people see you doing well they curse you or spread rumours because of their own insecurities. However sometimes it can get Worse and in some instances people can use witch Doctors to put curses on you, Something that is very prevalent in South Africa. While the above image is meant to be a joke, these are experiences that people had, so they responded with their own opinions. This is what they had to say.
One lady claimed that now you have to watch out for the witches that live with you as even the people close to you can be against you.
Sometimes the jealousy of people can see no limits, they won't stop cursing you until you are worse off than them.
Sometimes with all the gossip and rumors people will know things even before you are ready to talk about it.
Sometimes even trying to better yourself can make people not like you and curse, that why you have to be very careful with who you show your success too.
Other times it can even be your own family who are against you, your success may even hurt the ones who should love you.
The sad reality of the situation is that even though people are supposed to be by your side and supporting you, a lot of people will be against you. Doing well in life can make people bitter, however thats just the way people are, and we shouldn't pay too much attention of them. Just keep in your own lane and one day you won't have to worry about them anymore.
