For some context, my friend who is 25 years old says he is sad about not having a family to spend time with during the holidays and that life has been incredibly unfair to him.
He is upset that his father and mother never have time and that he is neglected and not loved.
But, this is how he lives:
His apt (Which I will say is a modest 1 bedroom) is taken care of by a trust fund, as well as utilities, including the internet. Every week he gets basic groceries delivered to his doorstep via redmart fresh And he receives a 1K deposit to his bank on the first of the month.
He has no job and no worries in life. No bills to pay, a roof over his head till the day he dies, food in his belly, and spending money. He has a sweet ticket in life, he can just sit and relax and he is good.
Meanwhile plenty of poor schmucks who have never seen their father and are barely scraping by for the next meal. So I told him that he was privileged, that his life was very good.
Here are what netizens think:
- Holy Cow. So you’re friend opened up to how lonely and sad they were about not having any family that loves him, how they’re all alone during times which are normally filled with loved ones and happiness and you’re response was suck it up
- you sound jealous of his money. He’s missing something actually important in life, family. Just because he has money doesn’t mean he doesn’t have problems.
- I had a friend I was in an improv troupe with. He was so rich he had a Mercedes, a top-floor condo and literally Elton John’s piano. He was always super sad and he said “my parents could buy me an island, but have never given me a hug”
