Negative Stigma of Successful Parents

Something I have always found interesting is the negative stigma that surrounds having “rich” parents and receiving help from them.

Of course, you have those kids who are entitled brats who have never worked for anything in they’re life. But those bad few should not represent the many hard working people that have worked hard and long to get where they are going but also have loving parents that help them out from time to time.

You see I was always perceived as this, although none of my parents are rich, they are upper middle class. We grew up in nice homes with nice things. The funny and weird thing is, I’m a harder worker than most who I know that come from less-well-off families than ours. So you see, as always, it comes down to individuals, motivation, drive, character, and i truly believe your environment or circumstance is of little deciding factor, history shows us this to be true.

But my whole thinking behind this, is like, isn’t this one of the main goals of people who have kids? Do well, so your kids can have it better than you did? But now we’re talking shit when my family achieves this but yours doesn’t? You just sound bitter.

I see “must be nice” to have everything handed to you. As if that’s actually the case.

Like, I’m sorry your parents weren’t more successful in life and made better decisions, but don’t take it out on me lol.

I’ve experienced this first hand, but i see it everywhere, especially with the likes of Elon Musk and President Donald Trump.

People try to dismiss and belittle their accomplishments because of family inheritance they got.

I see ” Oh if my daddy gave me a million dollars id be a success too”. NO, you wouldn’t, you would be a broke crack whore in a matter of 6 months, don’t kid yourself, lol. I can say this, because i know this, its all shown in your mindset. History shows this to be true as well, plenty of people blow thru fortunes. You have to have a smart mind to succeed. My guess with or without their inheritance, we still would have heard from the likes of musk and trump.

Like don’t let your bitterness mask your insecurities and create a false sense of “they have it easy, and i have it hard”. First off, EVERYONE, has it hard, regardless of money situation, once you get some more, you’ll figure that out. More Money More Problems isn’t just some made up term for the fun of it lol.

No matter your starting point, you can get where you want to go with enough drive, determination, and passion. Just let go of that bitterness and don’t hold a grudge towards someone just because their parents did something right.
