I’ve had so many good friends now. It was only in my final college year when realized that some people didn’t have as much. Some never had even one their entire life. So in a way, me talking about this might seem immature akin to how inflaming the people flaunting tokens of wealth on social media are.
But the point of this post is not to boast my past social wealth. What I’m trying here is to impart a lesson I’ve learned from having been in this unique situation, and also having lost it all.
I say unique, because I see the majority of us as lacking basic social fulfillment. Just as how so much of society lacks their basic economic needs while few possess enormous wealth, the social landscape lay similarly stacked. If you disagree, then the rest of this will probably annoy you and I will convince you that I’m a jackass, so it’d be wise to quit reading here. But I hope you’ll continue anyways.
How many times have you heard the word voracious in describing a person who reads a lot? If you’ve read a lot about writers then you’ll know it as the standard adjective. My girlfriend researches writers for fun, and from this hobby she’s grown an aversion to this lazy reliance on this single word. But if you were to ask her, ‘Has Abe been voraciously reading books about businesses and wealthy people’, even she would agree.
What does my voracious reading of successful businesses have to do with the lesson I mentioned earlier? I had talked about good friendships and now I’m talking about money. Is this going to turn into yet another self-help text on how to get rich?
No. I’m not rich, and actually I’m even poor! When we are talking financially. But if people’s social wealth was measured and speculated as meticulously as money is, then I would’ve at one point been one of the 0.1%. So my purpose in this will be to outline what I've learned the best I can, so that it might help someone who's trying to raise their social wealth.
Now you think I’m a jackass. Still... I hope that you'll tune in next time! Why? Weirdly I guess I'd rather you give me a chance even if that entails you finding me an imbecile the entire time, so long as it means that you aren't blanket shunning me.
