What is a social climber? In all honesty, is it a bad thing to want better things for yourself? Everyone is or should be a social climber, no?… but the difference is whether or not you stay a good human being, or an a**hole, stepping over dead bodies. Let’s talk about upgrades in life. We strive to learn to tie our shoes by ourselves as little kids so we don’t have to wait for our parents to do it for us, then we strive to make good grades in school so we can end up having better jobs. We break up with someone because we find something that fits better. We like to surround ourselves with perople who are already where we want to be and can bring us to the next level. Now, why our society doesn’t invest in educating people of all ages that upgrading is the good thing and that it should be an obligation of us all, as our citizen’s duty? In general, we should be more responsible about what we do in life and how we do it. As far as I’m concerned, do whatever pleases you, as long as you’re responsible not to be hurting someone in that process. And if that’s unavoidable, then make sure that the way you do it is graceful and respectful to another party. Everything else is pure cowardliness based on one’s fears. Own up to being and staying a respectful human being.
