The poor are the way they are because of negative & unintelligent choices. If one makes negative choices, h/she is going to have a negative life. Negativity begets negativity!
So do you believe children born into poverty are responsible for how they grew up? Some people simply have bad things happen to them - sickness, loss of job, family tragedy and that impacts them financially. It's not their fault.
Yes, some are born into bad circumstances. It's always good to hear people's stories of rising out of those situations through determined hard work. Unless a choice to do that is made, poverty is a cycle. But, some educated people live in poverty.
Good Suggestion , but in a friendship with poor , won't they expect some returns financially at a later stage ?
Of course, the poor expect to be compensated financially for a friendship w/a more affluent person. It HAPPENS all time w/friends & family. The poor must learn to be RESPONSIBLE for THEMSELVES.
I grew up in poverty and I have NEVER once asked any of my more wealthy friends/family for money, not even loans. If they offer to help get me out of a bad stretch, it's more than appreciated, but I would never ask.
Being a friend is many things. The benefit all depends on the character of a poor person. Most people would help a poor person as much as possible as long as they saw that the person was determinedly working to improve their circumstances.
Correct. But money only offers survival. They will kill themselves mentally before they die physically. Just my opinion.
Fantastic reply, but you are a well educated person . How can an uneducated , illiterate poor know about these things or have these kinds of thoughts?
Exactly - if a person has never in their life had access to any helpful resources how do they even know to use them? It's hard to plan and organize when you're literally living paycheck to paycheck even with multiple jobs.
People are the sum of their choices. Most poor people, especially in the United States and free societies make unintelligent choices which explains their dire socioeconomic situation!
