I had originally pledged the three thousand dollars to my cousin's college fund without a second thought. If anything, a secret part of me was already a bit embarrassed in anticipation of the flood of thank you messages I thought I might receive.

This reaction of theirs was a surprise. Bitterness, alienation and sarcasm.

I went to relatively cheap state university, certainly no Ivy League. It cost about ten thousand dollars a year for the program I was in, which is not much cheaper than it is now for state school. I worked at McDonalds and Office Max, both for minimum wage which at the time was less than six dollars an hour.

The college costs were paid for by taking out loans. I borrowed carefully, and for many years after college I paid it BACK, carefully. Law school was paid for by loans again. State school. Again.

Ramen. Cheap TV dinners. Subway, bus, or walk everywhere.

I got hired by a law firm. Worked my ass off and succeeded. Got headhunted by a bigger firm. Made money. Paid off my loans. When I get paid, a huge chunk goes to my daughter's future. Her college, her trust fund, my wife's trust fund, in case I die.
That's being responsible.

I made six hundred thousand dollars last year.

That three grand is a symbol of a trip to Europe I never took in 1999. It's a symbol of me walking in 2002, when he bought an SUV in a city where he doesn't even need a car. It's a representative of me eating a Hungry Man dinner while he wined and dined and tipped like a rockstar.
My kid is three years old and already has a half million dollars in her trust fund, interest growing
daily.

I'm not lucky, I worked for it. And I'm working for it now. If you don't get this, you don't belong in my life. You don't belong around me, because I do not want my success to rub off on you. I am just tired. Tired of all the losers, leeches and bums who get angry at me for my success.

Ehhhhhhhh.

Maybe it depends how you said it. If there were rude at you offering $3k to their kid, and asking for nothing in return, then There's some deeper issues here than just money and respect.

I would be so grateful for 3k. Right now I only have 2.5k saved up for college. Fuck your cousin.

If he (/his parents) is already rich why is he even begging around for money?

If you have to go asking around for money to get in the Ivy League, you don't belong there.

If you're rich enough, you don't need to ask.
If you're smart enough, they'll give you financial aid.

The average person hates to see success in others

People become envious so easily. It is always so easy to spot too.

Did the character in Op's post really win?
He's a highly paid wageslave. Yes, it's nice being rich I'm sure but he has to keep on working and it sounds like he's miserable.

I am just tired. Tired of all the losers, leeches and bums who get angry at me for my success.

I'd rather live within my means and sell businesses so I can do what I want and don't have to work to death but that's just me.

Op is successful, but not a success IMO

princeton was the first ivy league school to offer need based blind admission. If you get it they will essentially make you pay what you can afford and they will take care of the rest.

You became successful I got to tell you that but you did not learn your lesson properly.Which is, there is no such thing as free lunch.A simple thank you would make you forget about 3.000 $.Enjoy your wealth for now, you will eventually lose it if you continue to be a cuck.

I'm the resident "rich uncle" among my family and the "rich friend" among my old friends but I never felt exploited or resented based on that.

Do I just have good friends and family or could I just be blind to those things?

Either way life is good.

Don't burn your bridges. Just let them rot. Get your cousin out of your life. People who don't give you anything except dragging you down isn't worth your while.

Just do what makes you happy user, they dont know what you had to do to get where you are and they are jealous because they feel that couldve/shouldve been them with all the money.
