This Twitter user posed a simple question and people bared their souls
- Kenyans, and humans in general, are usually very fragile beings who have a lot going on in their lives but lack someone to open up to.
- Sometimes you want so to talk to someone so bad about your genuine wins and shortcomings in life but you’re afraid of how they’ll react or who they will pass it on to.
- And, sometimes as well, people do not open up because other people do not make them feel comfortable enough in their space to share their problems.

Sometimes you want so to talk to someone so bad about your genuine wins and shortcomings in life but you’re afraid of how they’ll react or who they will pass it on to.
And, sometimes as well, people do not open up because other people do not make them feel comfortable enough in their space to share their problems.
When that happens, most Kenyans take to social networking sites such as Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to open up to a bunch of strangers they know will never judge them; because, sometimes, even strangers are just friends you have never met before.
And so Kenyan Twitter user @CarolineSpencer tested this theory the other day with just a simple question:
“Nini inasumbua roho yako.” (Loosely translated to: What disturbs/ails your heart?)
Nini inasumbua roho yako

Most of the responses on her comments section were so emotional a few users started posting GIFs of tissues and hugs.
Below are a few of them that may make you shed just a little tear inside:
Victim shaming; how quickly people in our society shift focus from perpetrators of a crime to the victims, like somehow these victims asked for it and got served. It is Absolutely wrong!; someone was raped, infected, killed and somehow the people who did it are more saintly?

Someone I have been chatting with, talking to, every single day for the past 6 months or more has just stopped talking to me. I didn't even realise I was invested.😢

The pressure our society gives our youths when they are in their 20's as if they are supposed to have everything figured out yet until these dreamers succumb to mental health, drugs and robbery. Trying to live up to what the society expects from us will only do more harm…

Might have cancer and I don't know how to process/make peace with the inevitable at a young age. Anyways, maisha ni kukazana tu. 😒
