Have you ever had a “friend” who has something that you don’t? Have you ever had something your “friends” do not have but they desire? Welcome in the world of Friendollars, and yes you have known at least once, what Flattery is.
Let’s face it… together, so it doesn’t hurt too much.
Nowadays people is poor. Poorer than before. Favors are new cents. Interchange are new dollars. But big money is when you reach something big just through your “special friends”, your “Friendollars”.
You read it in the “SUCCESS” people. Every blog, every Instagram, every Twitter or Facebook of a Success Worshipper tells you in a way or another: give value to your friends.
You don’t need to have anything in the world, but the right friends. And they are totally right.
A Friendollar is someone who can make you travel, get in to the right club, make you a good review, support you when you need it in exchange of the same. You are a Friendollar when you do a favor unaware of the consequences, when you just help a friend without thinking if you’re making the right thing for him and for the others, and when you give away your friendship to people who hurt other people for excessive beliefs in spiritual or political or any kind of subject that makes you be against some other people different than you.
That’s why I took a vote of poverty at first. I had my quite decent sack of jingling friendollars once. Then I discovered this new religion’s sacrifice request for having this social money and decided to pass. I won’t tell anyone how great, wonderful, amazing, awesome he/she is if he/she doesn’t deserve it. I won’t take part of this deteriorated quality world where marketing is more important to substance. I won’t give my power, and I have, to people who doesn’t deserve it.
I’m not a good man for this. If you look around you whenever you see a bad thing, a bad product, a bad idea, spread all around the world, this happens because of friendollars. Because you don’t need to make something good right now, you just need to make it popular.
But, it’s not that you can really avoid being yourself or having friendollars and keep living in this world. It’s normal, it’s what has always been. In the end Friendollar is just one of the treasures of the Crisis that hit so hard all our hopes and beliefs in the future. The Awareness of this kind of relationship.
Friendollars have existed and always will. So, is it wise to just take a vote of poverty and decide to live outside society because of our values? Is it really fair to judge this like a negative feature or something that will make a difference in life of the poeple wether in a good or a bad way?
I don’t think so.
I think everything is about what is the source of your “Friendollars”: Envy or Awareness.
If you ever had something in your life, whether it’s physical or theoretical, people will envy you. You felt it’s weight on your shoulder at least once. Envy. There are two ways people will copy with this feeling: destroying you, or becoming your friend. You have been Friendollarzoned, buddy…
But there is a way to make good Social Money without abuse of be abused in the Friendollars World. A way to make it compatible with life and relationships. It’s the same as every “green” “environment-sustainable” “ecologic” concept we are becoming familiar with while mankind tries to learn how to live and prosper without killing ourselves in the process. Awareness. We have a value, an economical and social worth. And we can invest it. This is the best way to avoid use/abuse friendollars relationship.
There’s an ethic in Friendollars relationship, or maybe it’s just a way to transform Friendollars in just Friend. I discovered it when, during my vote of poverty, I saw myself in a mirror and decided I was too much influenced by my past to see the topic clearly. It’s true, it’s the longer path, but when you’re on it you’ll see it’s real advantage, not only in Friendollars, but in your life specifically.
I will give away just step 1: Stop flattering or underestimating yourself.
This is the first rule to become a real rich person in this world. We all have a value, we all have potential, we all are worth something. So it’s not you have to find people better or worse than you, you just need to find people with the right combination to complete and improve you own worth!
We are a treasure to the world, everyone of us, don’t you ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
