Idiotic habits of people who grew up in a poor family

Work.com.ua_22.10.2014_3zqQWYlLsadjOFew of us are born with a silver spoon, holding a platinum spoon in his hands. How many people, so many stories, but we still stubbornly continue to think about and fun to hang labels, simultaneously reading about how to learn to manage their finances economically. It’s possible that you grew up in a family that had income below the average, up to 18 years have not been able to fully rectify this situation, because, in fact, you were a kid. And we hope that you were smart enough to understand that the training school/technical school/College and self-development is your most valuable investment at this period of life. You probably could not fix or influence the difficult situation.

But a miracle happened. You found decent jobs and lived as a white person: your bills are paid on time, the fridge is filled, you have a flagship smartphone and two gold-covered, naked statues of himself on the balcony. Everyone who went through and overcame poverty, I would say that it fundamentally changes the very essence of man. Habits and thinking are shaped from childhood, not going anywhere just because you say, exaggerating a little, no longer a tramp, or sleep in a box. So what idiotic habits can haunt a man who raised himself from rags to riches?

1. The love of shitty food

When you’re poor:

You buy food based on two main criteria: how long it can be stored in the refrigerator and how it cheap. If you spend money, you need to spend on the shit that don’t go bad. Forget about fresh products, or fresh baked goods or fresh anything. Canned veggies are consistently included in the diet of every person with income below average. The same can be said about fruits, where on the bottom of each jar you expect a clean liquefied sugar and risk of developing hyperglycemia. If something were not preserved in your refrigerator, be sure the frozen: chicken nuggets, pizza, dumplings take out from the box, warm up, eat. People from poor families often are overweight, but not a good life, and due to the fact that their food is cheap processed shit. You learned to love like that because that used to expect just that.

When everything changed:

Fresh food is expensive and prepared for eternity. Deteriorates quickly, so take a few trips to the grocery store for a week, what do poor people can’t do. When you finally could afford such luxury, your taste buds have already been killed in the trash. And here you look at the asparagus, not knowing whether to put it in your mouth or rubbed into the scalp, that the hair grew thick and lush. There is a real temptation to keep eating the same thing until the cardiac arrest at the age of 43.

Although the same nuggets you can prepare yourself, roll fillets in mixture of bread crumbs and eggs and fry the meat in the pan. Instead of a favorite canned food to buy a decent piece of fish and bake it in the oven. Forget about canned vegetables and fruits. You can make a huge list of what to really prepare yourself from fresh ingredients to replace the usual dietary crap that is, you have no status.

2. The extra money needs to be spent immediately!

When you’re poor:

When you live abroad, you get used to the fact that the salary which barely managed to hold in hands, lightning disappears in the «savings Bank» or «Mail of Russia», where you need to pay for the communal or credit. And when you suddenly have money, you don’t know what to do with them. Instead of thinking, «I’ll pay the rent next month» – immediately pounce like a hungry dog, to the things wanted to buy but couldn’t afford it. Desire had entered into an unequal battle with the need and won.

Damn it! After all, if you don’t spend them now, that money will slip like sand through your fingers, leaving you with nothing! This story is not about greed. It’s about panic.

When everything changed:

Have you ever heard stories about lottery winners who went bankrupt within a year or two, despite the millions? It’s because they can’t cast doubt on the idea that money is a «perishable product». Keep your head clear. To reduce the temperature. Learn to manage money and not spend it in a blind panic. When you have no extra cash, you don’t know how to handle them when they are in your hands. Like everything else, it takes practice. Practice and self-control.

3. Are you satisfied with the attraction of unprecedented generosity

When you’re poor:

No matter how the situation is probably at least a couple times a year your parents could afford to give you gifts for the holiday or birthday, as a rule, not as cool as your friends. Gifts – half of all the pleasure you can get from life when you’re a kid. And loving them doesn’t make you a complete materialist. Many parents do not realize that when they’re openly worrying about bills within earshot of their children, the children are excited with them, and can feel the sudden attack of guilt if their street flips the truck with cakes in the form of unexpected surprise.

That is why adult problems should stay in the adult world. And if you have children, try to shield them from the unnecessary worries about what is outside of their control. Although you, as the breadwinner, is likely to feel a sense of inferiority for not can offer your child the best of everything.

When everything changed:

Have you experienced these dark times and escaped from a grave situation, taking by the hand each member of your family. For the New year have you started to think about expanding the housing as the gifts were under the tree, took all the space in the room, leaving space for the tree itself. You went behind the tree, but bought more gifts.

Such overcompensation can easily re-send you to the poorhouse. It can be not only gifts, but branded clothes for your children from which they will rise after six months, new furniture, new anything, just more and more expensive. Similarly, if you decided to quit his past vindictive: «fuck you, poverty!» Although with the new status may happen the opposite situation. Such as…

4. Excessive passion for recalculation

When you’re poor:

Remember the case when you’re in your old winter jacket found out where it took five hundred? Read this question eternally hungry students probably laugh in full voice, after all, to ask such an equivalent: «do you remember the day when I saw in the kitchen of the Minotaur, which beats a tap dance?» Living paycheck to paycheck, from scholarship to scholarship does not include any unnecessary wastes and any deviation from a clearly itemized budget plan can leave you without food or tokens on the subway at any time. Do you think the exact figures, payment of bills becomes a work of mathematical art, and eventually bring some measure of «X» where the «X» is equal to how hard you will have monthly bills.

When everything changed:

When you to worry about the actual numbers, you began to agitate the question, how much money is left on all your Bank accounts. Now you count them. Listed. Calmed down. And with new day new. You never relax. This DC voltage, the residual anxiety from the days when you didn’t know, will there be enough money to pay all the debts or the knocking at the door stands an uninvited arrival of representatives of the collection Agency.

5. You spend on what you need you just at the moment

When you’re poor:

You buy exactly what you need here and now. And no more. Packaging of toilet paper four rolls worth 6o, But you saw that on the shares for 100 g. you can buy a pack of 12 rolls. To hell with this campaign! And forty rubles, will not. Time to update your wardrobe does not come with the onset of heat, cold, or new collections from designers. You stomp for new clothes if the old shirt is like a sieve, or ceases to be the right size.

When everything changed:

This type of thinking can deprive you of many feasible purchases and expenditures. Missing action 2 for price of 1 on washing powder because you have not yet ended. Score for seasonal sales when you can grab a cool rags on the cheap, let you put it only next summer. Quite difficult to break the cycle and start thinking in the long term. Being poor is a mindset. And if given the opportunity, he’ll send your ass over the threshold of poverty.
