Bệnh nhà giàu – Disease of the rich (or disease of rich people) is very important. If one day you suddenly become rich, you come back with old things but despise them. You get “Bệnh nhà giàu”.
Disease of the rich
A man one day became rich by a chance. In the morning, he visited his garden to sense the beauty and smell of fresh flowers. However, when coming back to his house, he groaned that he was hurt.
His wife asked about his disease
And he said: “When I visited the flower garden in the morning, the dew dropped on my body from a climbing rose made me hurt. Quickly find a doctor to cure me!”
His wife answer: “My dear, maybe you forget that we used to live by begging, also used to stay in rain for the whole night under the bamboo forest and still were healthy. So how can the morning dew hurt you?”
(Quang Tiet Phu)
We always try to overcome all difficulties in poorness, but we become lazy and have much bad habits in richness.
