Riches To Rags: 19 People Who Grew Up Rich But Ended Up Poor
As we were all growing up, we became accustomed to our surroundings and life styles. Our 'normal' might have been someone else's 'weird', and vice versa. For those who were born into wealth, a lavish lifestyle was just their regular old life. A reality that many people dream of. However, nothing is guaranteed in this life. These confessions will show you that money effects everything. As you can imagine, the adjustment can be real tough for some people.


I grew up rich. My dad is a lawyer. I came out as queer and trans, and I'm disabled. My parents couldn't support me. Now, I'm on food stamps. I never thought it would come to this.

Oh, how things can change.

I grew up wealthy and my parents spoiled me. I'm now 30 and living paycheck-paycheck. Hell, I even get an overdraft charge 3 times a month.

Always be grateful for what you have.

For the last 16 years of my life I grew up rich and got nice things, and now my family is poor and broke. I'm 17 now and nothing is better, it's worse.

Reality checks can be harsh.

I grew up rich and now that I'm an adult and on my own I find it really hard not to spend money. I really see what it is like now to make minimum wage.

Welcome to the real world.

I grew up rich and now I'm poor. I hate working and having to work. To me, it's a fate worse than death. It's a lie when people say money can't buy happiness, because it can.

When it rains, it pours.

My family grew up rich, but then they messed up. We lost the house, we're broke, parents divorced and now my dad doesn't even live in the country anymore. Luckily all this happened when I was away in college.
