I live in a neighborhood that is...well lets say past its prime. Lots of unemployed folks..irritating thing about it is, these people many of them anyway are unemployed by choice because it is easier to live off of the government. Yet they always have cigarettes and cell phones, but bitch because they have so little. My DH and I work full time and have it better than most...cars, a pool, lots of nice extras you don't see much around here. I am blessed and so very thankful! But I get a tickle at times being able to buy and have things we work for and have the neighbors know it...shame on me(hanging head here) Last night because I felt like it and could, I went and bought brand new bikes for my boys...I felt proud pulling them out of the van...I know I shouldn't feel this way..how do I stop? Its not that I don't like the poor..but it seems some are poor by choice and it makes me mad! I am horrible!

You have been given good advice but it is pride that is preventing you from hearing it fully.
Stop being so defencive and let yourself view yourself as others view you, you just might learn a lot.
