Genuine relationships or fairweather relationships?

A very apt question…with probably no certain answer.

This poster, sent by a friend, set me thinking.

Do we treat everybody with about the same amount of respect and consideration?

Or do we give immense amounts of respect and consideration to people only if they are wealthier and/or more powerful and/or better connected than us, and little or no respect and consideration to people if we are wealthier and/or more powerful and/or better connected than them and we are definitely unlikely to need their help in any way in the foreseeable future?
Worse, do we maintain relationships with people only when they are wealthier and/or more powerful and/or better connected than us, and end those relationships when we become wealthier and/or more powerful and/or better connected than them and we are definitely unlikely to need their help in any way in the foreseeable future?

Do we have genuine relationships? Or do we have fairweather relationships?

  1. I haven’t seen any other post these days which is as true and plain as this…This is so correct about today’s world , including me and you….let’s all rethink and act…thanks.

  2. I’m sure all of us has a mix of two. Hopefully, the genuine friends outweigh the others, but a lot of professional relationships are based on convenience, right?! Also, your nosy neighbour who you have to be in good books with because you share a common space?! 😀

  3. You always want to have genuine relationships in your life. But even if we accept it or not, we all have at one point or the other have forged fairweather ones too.
