    Very. I am a very clean person,

    it's not like I walk around with filthy hair or have crusted dirt around my mouth. I do laundry once a week, I shower everyday, my clothes are always clean. I make an effort almost every day to put on a appropriate amount of makeup and decent outfits. It's just that my clothes...

    Just because that have more money and possessions than me doesn't mean they intimidate me.  It just means I have something to beat.

    I Hate Their Stupid Ideologies

    Example: "Well, whether I buy this 5th house or donate the money to charity doesn't make a blind bit of difference to how the world works, does it?" Even buying a chocolate bar (an individual one as opposed to a multipack on special offer) changes the world. See, take Johnny, the...

    That"s Ridiculous! ...

    That"s ridiculous! Who ever you are considering "rich" there are 3 many times more "rich" people than them. It is a never ending cycle. Did you know that if you have ANY spare change in your house right now, in a dish, in a pocket, in your couch...

    I'm Insecure Around People...

    I'm insecure around people that seem to know a lot more than me, or are extraordinarily confident, or that are beautiful and/or good looking. Richness doesn't intimidate me because I somehow recognize that those people are just normal, with their share of misery and complication...

    Most all people with money become snobs. Why feel insecure around them, you should not feel anything around them.

    Well, there are rich people around me. And there are tradesmen making a living. See, I thought about those tradesmen, and their shabby appearance and calls telling people they had no money for baby milk. Then I thought about other tradesmen who charge more, and have better lives...

    I'm Not Insecure Around Anyone

    Except possibly people pointing weapons at me. But the rich don't faze me. Most of them got rich from somewhat less than truly ethical means anyway, so if anything I tend to look down on them a bit.

    I think that just because someone has more money than you it does not  make you less of a person.

    "I Am Insecure Around Rich People"

    I have always been insecure around rich people. I have never lived a financially secure life. I guess some people would say I am on the poor side of the tracks. I have worked for Doctors whose employees and patients were well to do. I can tell you that yes I did feel like I was...
