Is money is so important to be considered better. I feel some time your colleagues and friends are with you or even respect you, if you are at a good position and earning good money. I do not mean that you spend on them. I mean that there is a need of position only to have a position in their heart. I feel that some time there is no mean how much you care for them or how much time you could give them to get their work done. But everything went useless for them if you don’t have money. They will not respect you. What are your views.

i guess in this material world, people need proof of status for you to be able to gain their respect... i for one know what appearances does to your status. having been lucky enough to have been born under a recognizable family line, there are things expected of you, things you have to achieve, show for, or do in order to live up to the expectations of those around you. and to achieve that, money and what you have plays a major role. money can allow you to show them that you have made it and that you deserve their attention. but on the other hand, aren't those that see only what money can do for a person more pitiful that the people they deem unworthy because they lack the resources to be "good enough in their eyes"?

I wish that money wasn't so important to people, but unfortunately it plays a very important role in the relationship between individuals. What makes me angry about the role that money plays in life is that people are constantly judging others by the things that they have. It is like they are saying that you are better if you are flaunting what you have. However, I am not the kind of person that wants to flaunt what I have. I much prefer to be the person that doesn't have a lot of material possession but to know that there will come a time in my life when I don't have a lot of debt to play while I know that there are other people that will.
