I believe, in today’s world, the length of any relationship depends on upon the strength of your wallet.
Keeping out those who were born with a gold spoon in their mouth, lack of money is a problem we’ve all faced at least once. A few hauled this pain (of having no or low money) throughout their life, while for others, this was only a short-term phase. Despite its duration, lack of money is capable enough of affecting our social life in many ways.
Your Lifestyle May Change
Firstly, lack of money can demoralize you, and you feel like, your world is always on the verge of an end. Be it any moment of your life, people will prefer to exclude you from their happy moments or ignore you, otherwise.
If they cannot ignore, they will make you feel bad to an extent that you will willingly withdraw from the situation. In addition, if you are going through a bad economic phase of your life, you will have to give up many things including the ones you are passionate about.
No shopping, no outing, no restaurant dinners, no parties, no movies, no travel; nothing at all. People will start treating you like an option and for you, happiness will become an option.
Though, people are going to sermon you on how to dream small, desiring less, and gratitude. But, there are many activities that you cannot participate without spending any money. Lack of money can change your lifestyle to a permissive one.
You’ll Feel Different About Yourself and People Around
Money gives you a certain image, and their absence can make you feel weak. Money is not the only important thing, but one of the most important things in your life. It is okay if you don’t want to integrate into groups where people have higher incomes and a good financial situation. The fact is, this is not going to affect anyone in any sense, but you and your thinking process.
While, as a precautionary measure, you are skipping your friends and relatives, you actually are cementing pavements with misunderstandings in the family or in relationships with people around you.
It Can Spoil Your Image Among Your Friends
Real friends are willing to help you any time, so do not avoid to tell you’re in a difficult situation. People talk a lot about money and friendship. When it is about love, money barely matters. But, in reality, picture is different.
Money and friendship are like oil and water; they cannot mix at any condition. Although I firmly believe that they shouldn’t be mixed, yet, I have seen people beating their blood relatives to death for a few currency notes or over a piece of land.
Try to experience it personally. If you want to lose a relationship or friendship, borrow money from him.
Money And Self-Esteem
Can you see that invisible link between money and self-esteem? Money and confidence, go hand in hand. With the heat of money, you can possibly melt anything and anyone. Believe it or not, there is a positive correlation between rising figures of bank balance and rising graph of attention.
People say, esteem earned this way is not going to last longer, but still, it is going to last until we last and crying in a BMW is more comfortable than to laugh on the backseat of a bicycle.
Money and Depression
Most people won’t agree with me on this point. But, yes! To an extent money and depression are related. I have spoken with many depressed souls and they have confirmed that lack of money directly affects their perception about them and they feel like they are going to end up as a loser.
Imagine yourself the only breadwinner at home and then, you will be able the direct connection between money and depression; it’s arduous, nerve-wracking, discouraging, and yes depressing as well.
