I have been fortunate in life to have some nice things, live in a nice house and go on some amazing trips. A lot of this is thanks to one person in my life. I make a point to try to always express my gratitude for being able to live the life I live and still make a difference in other people's lives. Maybe I get carried away sometimes with the material stuff. Then again, I don't think making a JOKE about getting a new bag b/c someone else got a new car is really that big of deal.
I am just furious about this comment. I'm furious that it implies that I am not grateful. I'm furious that it makes me look, quite frankly, like an asshole. I'm furious that I am perceived this way when I truly work hard trying to help other people. Am I supposed to live in squalor and not enjoy nice "things" (clothes, bags, shoes, etc) to prove that I am not a "spoiled diva?" Or am I supposed to find a balance? Work hard, do good and also enjoy the good life I have been lucky enough to find?
Or, do I sound like an ungrateful bitch?
