We all know Instagram is full of people trying to appear as though life is different from reality. It’s because we have things the wrong way around:
- The wrong way around: In days gone by, only aristocrats could afford the ‘really nice things’, such as luxury vehicles. Now anyone can get them on credit. It costs a lot and says nothing.
- The right way around: Those same aristocrats would also invest their time and energy into good causes. Things like helping the homeless. Now anyone can do this, too. It costs nothing and says a lot.
Real respect is born out of what we give to the world, not what we keep for ourselves. Class comes free.
