Why Are Rich Family Members So Uncaring And Unhelpful?I am not sure where to start off. I have a very confusing family history. I dont feel like going into detail about my past, but will say that my grandmother married my biological grandfather, had 3 children, and then got divorced. My grandmother remarried my grandfather who I really consider my grandfather because hes the one who took on the grandfather role.
I really had any contact with my biological grandfather growing up, he would come to family events in a blue moon, and my family didn't tell me this until I was older. So I thought my grandfather really WAS my grandfather for a very long time.
My biological grandfather remarried, had children with his new wife, and had children who he raised, put through college, and such. This man is a very wealthy man. EXTREMELY wealthy.
What bugs me is that this man really wants NOTHING to do with his children on our side of the family, besides my mother, his first child. He talks to her on occasion and even came to visit for a few days. I got to know him some, and took us out to dinner and stuff.
I just get irritated when I hear all the things he does for his daughters who are already wealthy, since he put them through school, but how badly he treats the ones on our side of the family.
I am in a bit of a financial struggle and emailed him one time asking to borrow a small amount of money, and he just totally ignored me. It really frustrates me because he says he wants to be a part of my life, but yet when I ask him for his help, he acts like Im just trying to "use" him.
Then we come to my partner's side of the family. My partner has a brother who is also extremely wealthy. He started a .com business that SKYROCKETED, and the man lives in FIJI! yes FIJI. The man is rich. My partner grew up with his brother, and practically raised him. Now they got into an argument once, and his brother told him he wants nothing to do with him, the brother treats his mother like crap. He used to send her money, and then one day just stopped.
My question is why do rich people act this way? they want to be a part of your life, but yet god forbid you ask them for a little bit of money, its like youre asking them to buy you a house!
If I was rich, I would be very generous to my family who needs it. It makes me sick the way people get then they have money.
