A story of a retired teacher who made a decision to never form a family by having a husband or even bearing a child has been doing rounds on YouTube especially on the circumstances sorrounding her decision.

Beatrice admitted to Monica in an interview about her life story narration that she preferred to keep calm and avoid anything that would give her headaches.
She didn't get married or have children because she intended to devote her entire life as a teacher and a church leader to serving humanity. She claims that having a family is nice, but it may be a huge distraction from work and church work.
Beatrice believes that all men are deceivers. She was once dumped by a man who had humiliated and shamed her. Now, she doesn't want to be a victim again.
The decisions people make in life should never be stigmatized because they want to live that way. She provides guidance in the form of.
Because of my principles, no one can criticize me or what I am or do; instead, they simply appreciate me for who I am and what I do."
