So let me paint two pictures:
1. You have millions but you dress like a bum. Nobody knows you have money. You live in a small, sh*tty apartment. You choose to live modestly but you never have any money problems. If your friend is in need, you can give him/her money.
2. Everybody thinks you are rich. However, you don't have a dime. You have several suits or dresses but you have to hand wash them in your swimming pool because they regularly cut off your water and electricity. You live on bread and water. When you go out, you have to avoid paying the bill, even if it means running off. You go on holidays but in truth you have to work 12 hours a day while there.

OUTSIDE OR UNDERNEATH?-Shel Silverstein
Bob bought a hundred-dollar suit
But couldn't afford any underwear.
Says he "If your outside looks real good
No one will know what's under there"
Jack bought some hundred-dollar shorts
But wore a suit with rips and tears.
Says he, "It won't matter what people see
As long as I know what's under there"
Tom bought a flute and a box of crayons,
Some bread and cheese and a golden pear.
And as for his suit or his underwear
He doesn't think about them much...or care1
