The Wealthy People’s Anxiety

[What Do They Worry About]


Out of about 8 billion people in the world, only a few, roughly 1% is wealthy. While most of us are going on with our everyday lives, concerning about the same thing, and thinking of ways to be rich, what could these wealthy people be worrying about?


Uncle Ben from Spiderman said, “With great power comes great responsibility,” and in today’s world, we all know that money is power. As we may all aspire to be rich and live a luxurious life, do we know what comes with what we so furiously desire?


As we worry about the future of our children, the mortgage, and our monthly bills, what do wealthy people worry about? Are we really up to the mental challenges that money can bring forth? Let us see what these wealthy people concern themselves about, and then we can decide if we want to belong to the 1% of the world population.



Wealthy People Are Anxious About:


  1. The Motives Of The People Around Them

Wealthy people will have a challenge determining who are genuine and who are not. In fact, it will be hard for them to find true love or partner. They will always question whether they are wanted for who they are and not for what they have. It is easy to stick with the people who’d been with them even before the riches, but the presence of the people around after they acquired their wealth is just suspicious.

 Semi-awareness of your suppressed capacities underlies much of the unhappy, symptomatic lives that often accompany high-achieving, materially successful people. — Douglas LaBier Ph.D.

  1. The Love Of Their Spouse

People who do not have riches do not have to deal with this kind of problem. It is easy for them to distinguish between people who have a genuine love and those who do not because the people without the purest intentions would most likely walk out the door the moment they realize life is hard.


  1. Their Children Being Able To Learn The Real Value Of Life

Though having much money to spend looks exciting, for wealthy parents, it creates a rather deep concern over the values of their children. Will they grow up to be a good human being capable of compassion? Will their lives have meaning or will they be trapped inside the invisible wall that separates them from the real world? Will they live a normal and happy life? Will they have true friends? Will they marry someone who would not marry them for the money? Will they ever fall truly in love?

While work does continue to be a necessity for people of lower socioeconomic status, for the wealthy population, work has even become some kind of higher calling or purpose. — Adi Jaffe Ph.D.

  1. Their Safety And Of The People They Care About

People will try and ruin them because of their money. We all know that some people will do anything for the love of it, even murder. Wealthy people are always anxious about their safety. They always feel the need to be protected that’s why they have bodyguards because there are many instances all around the globe where the children of wealthy people are being kidnapped in exchange for money.


  1. Their Wealth After They Are Gone

We all notice them when they are already on top, but do we care about the hardships they went through to get to where they are? Some of the wealthiest people nowadays have the most inspiring stories, and their lives show us that hard work does pay off. Wealthy people worry about where their wealth is all going to go after they are gone. Will the people left behind take care of their life’s work?

Those with grandiose views of self do not see the need for self-improvement, severely limiting their ability to accurately process reality. They also generally lack empathy for others, which has a high cost in terms of building deep and authentic relationships. — Melissa Stringer, LMHC, DCC, NCC


For some reason, even the wealthy people develop anxiety. In fact, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, the young and rich people are at a higher risk of developing it. Maybe because there are a few inspirational quotes for the wealthy, maybe the only way for them to cope is to spend some and then make up for it after, or maybe they have less time to get in touch with the priceless places and moments which they didn’t know they are missing. Nonetheless, anxiety is real, and it doesn’t matter whether you are wealthy or not. The only advantage of wealthy people is that they can afford the treatment needed to get better.
