Who needs him

I had this friend back in my old school days. He used to be humble about coming from a wealthy family but his personality changed defiantly after we graduated. Success must have gone to his head. He became cocky and full of himself. He never had anything interesting to say except comparing his wealth to others and bragging about high priced dinners with lawyers and that kind of crap. Garbage. Absolute garbage. We had nothing in common, so we drifted. I don’t know him anymore. Haven’t seen him in so long therefore he’s dead to me. More so than my own dead relatives.

Sounds like this person didn’t turnout to be a real friend. Forget about him. Who needs these self entitled spoiled rich kids that hide deep inside their mommies and daddies pockets. He did you a favour. You don’t need people like that in your life. There’s a lot more desirable people out there, so he has no importance in your life whatsoever.

Interesting OP

Was your friend never generous with you and his other friends?

I was raised in a middle class home in Burnaby where both parents had gone to university and had themselves comer from wealthy business owner families. In my 20s I was on welfare, so I knew what it was like to be poor and learned how to budget limited funds. Now I’m a millionaire and those people who remained my friends don’t have to listen to bragging about it but they sure as hell are being rewarded for their loyalty! ;)

Not all Rich people are snobby. There are kind ones out there. Don’t go looking for a flower in a pot of dirt. Go out there to the beautiful botanic gardens. We’re all flowers inside.

You're no longer in touch with this person yet here you are writing a confession about him. I'm not judging you, I'm just saying something about this person gets under your skin and I think that's worth exploring.

Here here, my friend. I wouldn't spend anymore time worrying about people from the past if I were you; especially the insignificant ones that no longer serve any purpose in your life whatsoever. Maybe perhaps you and that filthy rich kid didn't end up having anything in common after all. It's natural to grow apart once school is done. Once you leave school, your interests start to change. When you finally walk out those doors, it's good to breathe fresh air and start over, which reinforces the fact there's life beyond those brick walls.

It’s kind of silly to automatically assume that you’re going to be in every friend’s life forever. It’s pointless. It is what it is and there’s nothing to do about it. Most high school friendships don’t last forever. People grow and change. Life goes on.
