MONEY AND SELF-WORTH
What if I won a lottery and had more money than I knew what to do with? Would there be shortage of advice from long-lost relatives and distant friends on how to spend my money? Would I suddenly become worthwhile to people who now see me as worthless? Would these people line up to kiss my feet, and another lower part of my body?
When I have lots of money people call me “Mr. Johnston.” When don’t have money people call me “Gary.” I am the same person whether I have money: a slightly less than average amazing guy. It is other people’s reactions towards me that changes. How much money I have determines their reactions.
I would be an average amazing guy if it wasn’t for my inferiority complex. I developed an inferiority complex because my father raised me to think of myself as a human being. How can I feel superior to anything given what we humans do to each other and the environment?
My inferiority complex does not stop me from feeling worthwhile. Whether I have money does not stop me from feeling worthwhile. Some see me as a bad example. Good! I am an excellent bad example, and worthwhile no matter what.
Does money feel worthwhile when it has lots of people?
