The Rich or Famous Are Just Like You

A little notoriety does not mean exemption from problems.  When a person of modest income and standard living exhibits some emotional concerns, it is normally attributed to a lack of education, finance, profession, or family ties.

But what happens when you have all that and you still have problems?  Your worry may not be climbing the corporate ladder because you are at the top rung. Your concern may be how to stay there because everyone is attacking you to get your position.  Your concern may not be how to pay the monthly bills or pay for the car repair in the next three months. Your concern may be how to maintain a lifestyle if you become unemployed or the second or main breadwinner dies or becomes unemployed in the next 5 years. You may not be worried about child care while you and your spouse work because you have enough money to pay for a round the clock nanny.  However you may be concerned with the education that your child is missing by not being around you and your educated friends all the time due to work responsibilities.  Your concern may never be taking drugs or drinking because you are not around others that partake in those activities.  Nonetheless the money and fame means more access to more prominent and powerful secret things that people are eager to have you take to bring you down or take you out.

Everyone has problems both big and small.  You can not discount another person's problems just because they supposedly have more money, fame, or fortune than you.  We all pray to the same God who is able to keep us from falling.

Keep this in mind before you judge anyone.
