Moral lessons from chapter nine – JAMB novel

This chapter supports the proverb which says “not all that glitters are gold“. This simply means that you should not trust everything you see.

This is evident in the life of Salim who is almost a social media addict. He is in diverse social media platforms as he knows about them too well. He feels everything on social media is real.

First, he meets a beautiful girl called Natasha. He thinks he has finally got the best fish in the sea without knowing that his life is at risk. Salim visits and becomes disappointed.

Secondly, he meets another girl who, from the look of things, has better intentions than Natasha but he looks ugly. From the way the girl posses on social media Salim feels he has gotten another fine fish in the sea not knowing that the cover of the book is quite different from the content which is not supposed to be so. Salim visits her and becomes disappointed for the second time.

Furthermore, it is important for one to learn from his first experience. Salim learned the hard way. He fails to learn from his experience with Natasha. So, he gets similar experience with the second girl.

Again, social media can endanger one’s life and property. It almost robbed Salim of his life and possession. Users should be careful as they use it.
