This story touches on the issues of "Blessers", who are typically older men who sponsor young women with money and gifts mostly in exchange for sex. Young women are often drawn in by such characters, as they can offer a change in lifestyle and an escape from their current situations. However these relationships come with risk, as young women may mistake this exchange for true romantic feelings and end up getting hurt. "the Journey of My Life shows one such example and serves as a warning to young women to not be lured in by the charms of blessers.
