POVERTY DESCRIBES YOUR INCOME, NOT YOUR IDENTITY
Poverty is more than an income level; it is a socially constructed identity that leaves scars of psychological impairment.
When we look past labels of what is often defined as “poverty,” we see people not as individuals with a series of problems to be solved, but as full human beings. To us, “poverty” describes your income, not your identity.
Financial insecurity may shape how people define who they are and what they are capable of which influences their choices.
Poverty traps are often attributed to lack of capital and credit. In the same vein, new research suggests that the mere perception of “being poor” can make it difficult for the poor to lift themselves out of poverty.
Poverty is relative but absolute. It constrains your choices. There needs to be structures in place to offer choices.
Don’t be trapped by the balance in your account. Don’t react to the financial sickness that you experience per time. That should not define who you are. You are who you say you are regardless of the amount of money you have.
Rise to feet and walk your plan fiercely not minding the odds. Connect with people you think would help your plans come to fruition. Ask for help when the need arises. Enjoy yourself while it lasts. You have just one life to live, don’t live your only life based on your income.
Respond wisely! React intelligently! Reach out for the top.
