According to Wikipedia :

FWP is a slang term used to refer to issues in First World nations that are complained about only because of the absence of more pressing concerns.

The term “First World problem” first appeared in 1979 in G.K. Payne’s work Built Environment but gained recognition as an internet meme beginning in 2005, particularly on social networking sites like Twitter (where it became a popular hashtag).

According to :

The first Urban Dictionary entry for the term was submitted on August 10th, 2005: “First World Problems: Problems from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at.”

  • i hate any video on youtube, no matter what its about, when the person talks about random shit like their life or some pointless backstory for like 3 minutes before the actual video starts; why do you people do that. fuck

  • Sometimes I’ll leave my phone in my bag when I get home, and then right before I go to bed I’ll freak out, saying to myself “Oh no I hope I didn’t miss any important calls or text messages!” and will rush to my bag to get my phone.  And then when I see that no one called or text’d, I’m all “Awwww” and get sad.

  • I feel like I spend too much time cleaning my house before my cleaning lady comes over.

Y’all know this issues – FWP


Anyway the general perception looks like:

FWP = stupid problems we have that does not effect our/other lives in any major way.
Compared to third world problems our problems don’t mean shit.

Still “Many issues are nowadays dismissed as mere ‘first world problems’. But the problems of the first world are deeply important and need to get addressed – as the whole planet will eventually have them.”

Check for solutions in this video from The School of Life:




* Reminder:

  • First World Problems are problems that the whole planet will eventually have, and is not a lack of money that is the problem is a deep lack of wisdom.

  • Focus on collective effort!
