It’s not easy being a trophy wife – some might think our lives are filled with endless champagne towers, private jets, yachts, and big diamonds.
Of course, these things occur more regularly than others – however, choosing the life of a trophy wife isn’t always the glitz and glamor others might perceive.
To be the best trophy wife you can be, here are some tips:
Haters Gonna Hate
Envious and envious will hate.
I love knowing that – every time I hear a mean comment, I know the comment is the manifestation of a lot of envy.
Either way, many people will make fun of you and put you down after you reveal to them that you chose the Trophy Wife path in life.
The main thing to remember when this happens is to never be ashamed of who you are – if you look at yourself, you give others permission to do the same.
Remember that hatred stems from ignorance – they obviously don’t know that the definition of a trophy wife has changed over the years.
It’s up to you to educate them.
Don’t let enemies hate you.
If I had a dollar for every time someone made fun of me for my lifestyle choice, I would be able to pay my entire rent.
And remember – hate always comes from jealousy and envy – haven’t you noticed that it’s mostly ugly women who hate you?
Don’t Spend Frivolously
It is exciting that you married a rich man and made a significant amount of money.
Don’t make the rookie mistake and spend all that new wealth frivolously.
Never spend more money than he did – that will only put you two in economy class the next time you have to cross the Atlantic.
Show him he can trust you with his money, not wasting it – no one needs two helicopters, and parking them sucks.
Be as passionate about saving as he is, only savvier about freeing up a little more to spend.
Labels Don’t Define You
Nothing screams new money than when you’re dressed head to toe in designer clothes.
Being fabulous doesn’t mean openly showing off your newfound wealth by dressing in a gaudy Versace gown.
A true trophy wife is always discreet, rocking her own classic style with investment pieces.
Understand that fashion and style are not the same things.
The fashion is to wear shorts in summer and fur in winter; style is more individual and personalized – style is how you wear your shorts in summer and how you dress in winter.
Always be courteous
Just because you made money doesn’t mean you can treat others with contempt.
Sure – having an employee always on hand might be new to you, but they are not your servants.
They are your employees and they are still human.
As my mother taught me – you are no better than anyone and always treat others the way you would like to be treated.
Don’t talk down to people and don’t assume they should kiss your ass – having good manners and being courteous to people is a long way to go that only brings benefits.
After all – you can’t keep an eye on your employees all the time and when you’re not around you hope they don’t spit on your cocktail.
Hold Your Tongue
Most of the time, in order for your husband to bring home money, he often has to work a lot.
Due to the stress of work, he is sometimes grumpy and most of the time he attacks you.
Don’t cry like a baby when this happens – it will only make the situation worse.
Step back and give him some space – you get more control that way and more respect too.
The main thing to remember?
Always be self-confident, but also have humility.
