Bridget Otoo, a broadcast journalist has given sound advice to Ghanaian youths who prioritize cars over the most important things in life.

She revealed that most of her friends who drive expensive cars, suffer and even beg people to pay their rent arrears for them.

Miss Otoo hinted in a Twitter post seen by this portal that one should get their own place of residence before chasing material things.

“I have friends who change cars every year but don’t own a plot of land and have to beg people to pay their rent. I have used the same car for 7 years but at least made progress in certain aspects of my life, like not paying rent.

“I know we are all different and a car could be more valuable to someone than a house.

"But when you’ve seen poverty like I did growing up, you won’t live your life to please anyone but to save for a rainy day,” she wrote.

Instead of imitating luxurious but phoney lifestyles, the freelance journalist advised young people to be guided by who they are and where they want to go in life.

She emphasized the importance of being oneself rather than trying to impress others.

“If you allow yourself, the world would tell you who you are, how you shd look, talk, etc… I know it’s tough but please be your AUTHENTIC self. There’s so much going on in the world that every minute you spend living someone else’s life, you rob yourself of happiness. Don’t do things to impress but to make you happy! Remember those who love you don’t need an explanation,” she stated.
