A South African medical practitioner, Jackson Van Staden, has revealed that he once simulated his demise to test his close circles to see if they truly care.
What he did was to take a leave from work and told his close friends and girlfriend that he lost his job. He went ahead to take his car to the repairs and said his company seized it. He then moved from his house to stay with his brother and said his house was being auctioned his company.
To his surprise, after faking that he lost his fortunes, his girlfriend left him and most of the people he called his friends and family started abandoning him. It was thence that he learned that nobody really cares for him.

“I once simulated my demise to test my close circle, took leave at work and told them I lost my job, moved in with my brother and told them my house was auctioned the bank, took my car for repairs and told them it was repossessed. My so called fiance was the 1st to leave
Then some family members followed, then friends one one.
That’s when I painfully realised I am all I’ve got and absolutely no one would save me. I ruthlessly and selfishly always put myself 1st because no one would pick me up from my fall. Do the same Men”
