Are designer labels really necessary to boost your self-image - part 3
(2) You have the financial means to spend on those items, and you do so without reservation
In this category, you could end up being a playboy if you are a male. If you are a female, you may be labeled as a spoilt brat with too much money than sense. Again, both males and females can abuse their position and become too attached to the materialistic aspects of the world. To attract the right kind of partners, one has to be balanced with their spending habits just like in category (1) above. If you are sensible with your money and your desire is for the finer aesthetics in life, then you need not worry about giving off the correct self-image. If your desire is to please others then you may need to look into your yourself and analyze and question where you stand. It is often the qualities that you possess as an individual which have no bearing on what you wear or buy that determines the longevity of a good and healthy relationship.
(3) You have ample money but you don’t show it
You probably know of the story by Charles Dickens called ‘‘Scrooge’ where a rich accountant counts every penny and lives a sorry life until he finally wakes up to his mistakes. Please make sure you don’t fall into this category, since this could be one of the most disliked self-images that anyone can possess. There are so many people who are struggling to make ends meet but here is an individual who has large amounts of money but spends very little on himself or on others. The quality of relationships are based on empathy and one who is balanced with their way of spending is more likely to succeed.
