Mercy Eke’s post seems to be sending a message concerning the reality TV star’s mood at that point in time. She may have been going through some trying times, which has linked a depressing mood to her neural state.
It may equally be that Mercy Eke decided to share the post in order to see how her followers and social media users are going to react.
However, Twitter users took to Mercy’s comment section to share some views concerning the reality TV star’s post.
A user identified as Ebuka stated that using himself as example, money is one entity that will give him happiness, even though it can change later.
“At this stage of my life, money is the core entity that will give me happiness. It can change later on but at this stage of my life, money is the core entity that will give me happiness”.
The next commenter wrote that most people reacting to Mercy’s post are busy asking her for money, when in actual sense, it might be that she’s having a hard time.
@Steve_robert221: “You all are busy saying wire me money this and that, nobody is sending love, light and prayers to her way. She might be passing through stuff that money cannot fix… God in his infinite mercy will show you mercy and correct hat wish bothers you amen”.
The user continued that money is actually good, but the fact remains that money can’t solve everything.
@Steve_robert221: “Anyone that says money is not good is an hypocrite but the bitter truth still remains money cannot solve everything…”
A user, by username Pearly advised Mercy to stay strong because tough times don’t know if a person has money or not, but money only helps to ease the pain by providing the very necessities to life.
