Sometimes we forget that people are people.
They experience fear, happiness, joy, anger, jealousy, anxiousness, loneliness, shame, embarrassment, etc. So why do we put others on a pedestal? We are taught that we should respect our elders and such but these people have a bias. They have an interest at hand and it’s not always in your best interest. If money is the only issue, then don’t make it an issue anymore. Live your life in this very moment. Create karma that continuously reproduces in your mind. Don’t suffer if you don’t have to. Don’t live up to harsh expectations. Have your own expectations and adjust as you need to. Metta.
