Nothing more frustrating for a beginner than not being able to get the shot you want.

Imagine wanting to take a picture of a distant subject and only having a 28mm.

Don't limit her.

Imagine there's an astronaut on the moon and you want to photograph him on earth. There's always going to be some limitation and you can't take a good shot in any situation.

I used for about 2 years a 50mm lens on Canon 6D. I didn't find it limiting. I knew I couldn't photograph sports or buildings in crowded streets, but I could do a lot of things with it.

Even a zoom is limiting. How can I shoot wildlife if I only have my 15-30mm with me?
