What will you don if you knew someone who only respect rich people? Will you be friends with them? If yes, why? And if not, why?
I have known someone who only respect rich people or those professional person. They will show respect to them and they almost like to praise them like they're God. They follow what rich people told them even if they look like slave to them. Some of my relatives were like that. They were so proud having a friend who is rich. They like to hang out with them. In short, they were like a leech, lurking to rich people. The funny thing is that, they looked like slaves. Yes they were given money from their friends but if you look deeper and understand the situation, they were being used by those professional. But, they can't see it because they're blinded with the money.
I didn't say that they should not be friends with rich people, what I want to say is that, they should give importance to themselves. That they should not act like a stray dog ready to pound. There are still lots of RICH people who are kind to everyone and to the poor but we know that there are also lots of them who used lower level people like us. Being a poor one, we should know who we friend for. Some poor people will do their best to have friends with rich people thinking they will benefit from them. But they will disregard those people who are with same level as theirs. Like, they will criticized other poor people because they felt they're already high for having a rich friend.
Some people will just respect rich because they want to feel how to belong with their group. Having an outing and to have parties which in fact, they're struggling to have. I'm saying that if you respect rich people, you should also respect poor people. You should know how to respect everyone, it may poor or rich. You should not just respect those person who you think will give you benefit such money. Yes, we should know how to admire them for having that status, it's because of their hard work. If you respect them, respect also those poor people who have fone their best yet not able to change their status to be rich. Because not all who have done their best get the chance to be rich. Same as farmers. Farmers in our country are poor right? They've done so much just to have something to eat. They're the reason why we have something to eat yet they received criticism from others for being poor. They were not respected and some also looked at them like a trash for being dirty. I've known someone so I am saying this. It's just so painful to see someone being dumped for being poor and disrespected by others who were also not rich.
This kind of person loves only the money. The benefits they get from rich people. But once they will not get from them even a single cents, they will also disrespect them. It only means that they love the money and not the person. If you don't have anything, you will not be respected but if you have money, they will love and worship you. As much as possible, stay away with this kind of people. We should respect everyone equally.
There were also lots of professional who look down with other people especially those who don't have degree. I am not saying all but some. Some professional look at themselves so high because they have degree and forgot how to be human. They sometimes disrespect others. It's so shameful knowing some people like that. That is why when I graduated at college my parents always taught me to always put my foot in the ground and respect everyone, may poor or rich.
If you want to be respected too, respect everyone and not only those who have lots of money. Respect those people who knows how to respect. Money can be earned but true friend is hard to find. Respect should be earned too, same as money but respect last long than money.
