Bad and bougie (BEDA 27)

It’s seems a little contradictory to be cheap and also uppity. I think we all know someone like this. They think the Migos song is talking about them. These are the people that expect everything from everyone but rarely give anything in return. The guy that talks shit about other dudes that aren’t popping bottles in the club, but the bottle he is holding was bought by his friend. The girl that can’t afford a Michael Kors purse but calls a dude worthless because he won’t buy it for her. The person that will invite you out to lunch or dinner and expect you to pay. The person that’s label conscious but can’t buy those labels so they borrow their friends clothes to stunt in. They want to portray themselves as top notch, bougie, too good for “regular” things but can’t afford the luxury they so desperately want. They bash others for not living the lifestyle that they pretend to live. You see them on social media all the time with their fake life. They show their jewelry and clothes but not their 410 credit score and $12,000 in credit card debt. They are in a constant one sided competition with everyone else. They aren’t happy but pretend to be and they are fabulous at pretending. 

So the next time you feel yourself comparing your life to that perfect social media life that you see remember, not everyone is who they “post” to be.
