Disadvantages of being rich or beautiful/handsome or both!

Monday, September 28, 2015 By , , 8 comments

We all know what beauty brings with it; access to restricted places, endless favors, no ticket for breaking the traffic rules mostly and what not? And the same goes with being rich too. Isn’t it? I am none, though.

That's not me! Sigh 
If I start to mention the advantages, which I won’t because am lazy, then that will take a couple of more posts to sum all of it!

But, to shorten the longer version with a bad metaphor, it can be said that beauty and money are like the ultimate weapon to escape or to take advantage of any situations. Well, Almost. Work both ways.

I will leave the advantage part because that is common for all of us to notice and experience in life. But, what if I tell you the disadvantages of being beautiful or rich or both? Trust me, ain’t drunk.

Here are a few disadvantages of it. Add some of your own in the comment section, for when I skip something. Age has to be blamed for my mistake.

1.       They are not considered as talented
This is the most common thing beautiful/handsome and/or rich people get to listen on their back when they do something big. Be it, coming first in the papers or building something great. Or whatever. You have a better imagination. Use it.

Anything they do will be reasoned with their hard work and commitment for it, DON’T think like this. Because it has mostly been their money or looks that has done the trick, people say.

‘Ameer he bhaiya, asaani se jugaad betha li hogi’

And adding to the grief, this notion has never shifted a meter from its ground. It is affixed like the shitty daily soaps of Indian TV channels. Gustakhi maaf ho Ekta Kapoor ji.

2.       They befriend people with hidden motives
This is also very common. When you are beautiful/handsome, you get enough attention all ways round that it burns people like me to the ground. Easily. Same goes for wealthy individuals too.

Consequently, you get a mixed batch of people associated in your life who would lick your feet and brag about you throughout the day and continuously for weeks and weeks. 
Hum mar gye he kya bhaiya? Tanik idhar bhi chaaploosi karlo.

And all this for something. May be, monetary support or other kind of support you well know.

However, there will be a handful of people (excluding your family) who will love you for who you are and will be a part of your life. But, in the herd, it remains a tough task to differentiate the good sheep or the bad sheep.

You will always be in doubt whether people like you for who you are as a person or for your looks or money. Period.

That is all I could think of. Would love to have your opinion, suggestion and points about this post. Thank you for reading.

P.S.: I love to watch Shaun The Sheep. Do you?!


  1. Well, I don't second any of it. The reason being, I have come across way too many beautiful and rich people in my life who are gifted both in looks and in brains.

    And about the befriending people with hidden motives part, let me tell you that some rich people can be the best of friends ever!

    It's not about beautiful/rich people being good or bad. Anyone can be good or bad. Stereotyping people by their wealth and beauty doesn't do any justice. :)

    1. Ok. I read you opinion and you are completely right.
      However, sorry to say but it seems like we are on different pages. Because in this post I did not showcast beautiful and rich people as villain or something.
      It was just a picture of what they face in life upfront or behind their back.

      Thank you for your time.

      Keep visiting :)

  3. You are absolutely right. Moreover, these people have to struggle to get away from spot light to do what they actually feel like doing, which often hampers the productivity in college or work. Their god gifted beauty or family gifted money often brings with it tons of fake faces and praises that make them conscious in public and become a obstacle for growth. One gatta make ones mind and prepare oneself to cope up with all these and move ahead along with making intelligent choices and learn how to ignore mindf*ck people which is often confused with attitude.

    P.S. I loved your post !!

    1. Ahan! Love to see my real life friends posting a comment on my blog from time to time. Welcome girl.
