Is It Really A Bad Thing To Be A Gold Digger?
Today we are going to have a look at a derogatory label that gets bandied around a bit. The “gold digger”.
Some people love the luxuries that being rich brings. Further, they strive with the pressures that also come with these luxuries. Occasionally these people are women who, rather than earn the riches themselves, hope to marry into riches. As such, they pursue and date wealthy men exclusively.
People are different throughout the world. Every difference comes with its own pleasures and comes with its own pressures. Being rich is only one of those differences and its not for everyone. If you don’t think there are pressures for the rich, just look at the gossip section of any magazine. Not everyone can handle the pressures associated with abundance. That is why for so many people, winning the lottery is the worst thing that ever happened to them. It destroys their life.
People have different priorities in life. For some people, commitment to their business or career is their number one priority. This is what earns them their riches. Personally, its not for me, I’d prefer a life of love and fulfilment through commitment to family, but thats just where my priorities lie. For others though, life is about earning and enjoying all the luxuries life has to offer. This is what brings out the best in them as people.
Given I can understand that such a lifestyle isn’t for me, yet it is for others, I don’t understand why people have to create unfair labels for people who want to live that way. I don’t understand why other people need to label a woman who pursues and dates wealthy men a gold digger, if it makes both her and her partner happy. The woman who applies this criteria to her dating assumedly knows herself, know what situations she works well in and understands the qualities she brings to her partners. So why can’t we just wish her all the best and concentrate on our own happiness?
The basic problem is that no matter what you do, people will want to interfere and shove their own opinions down your throat. They clearly haven’t got enough going on in their own lives. If you know what your want, have the courage to go after it. Only you can say what will make you happy at the end of the day.
And forget about the detractors. Remember, their opinions usually tell you more about them than the people they are opining about.
