Stella Damascus Slams Social media Beggars Says “Be your own Boss”

Uk based Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus took to her instagram
page to call out social media beggars.
The actress shared a photo on her page with a long caption saying….
Like many others, I receive direct messages from young people asking
me to help them out with their problems. They need money to pay for
one thing or the other. 90% of the time it’s nothing medical or life
threatening, just money to pay rent or one course in school. I take time
to read through their stories and help as many as I can but trust and
believe that my contribution may not solve the problem totally. I try to
follow up with these people and I find that they always end up in the
same place (broke). So I started asking them to learn a trade, use their
talent, get mentors, learn from YouTube. If these people have enough
data to come and ask for money on social media then they would
definitely have enough to learn something from YouTube or other free
webinars. The moment I start to ask them to learn something I become
an enemy. Then I get messages like “if you don’t want to help me just
say it. We, your fans have made you into a star but you can’t help us
with your money”. It used to upset me but then I had to understand
that the heart of a hungry person can lead to verbal diarrhea. My only
problems is that they are hungry for the WRONG THING. You want the
money but you don’t want the knowledge of the source where you can
keep making that money. I don’t get it. You want to keep asking for fish
but you don’t want to learn to catch your own fish. Who knows if you
will even start catching more fish than the person you are begging
from. I am saying this again ” begging for small money here and there
will guarantee a constant state of poverty, but acquiring the knowledge
and skills and using it to earn a living guarantees constant money in
your pocket”. Become your own boss and stop living this HAND ME
DOWN life. #stelladamasus #actor#nyc #mondaymotivation
