Why is everybody all about money?

Why is everybody so obsessed? Money can't buy us happiness. Can we all slow down and enjoy right now? Guarantee we'll be feeling alright without money. It's not about the money, money, money. Life ain't about the cha-ching, cha-ching. No one cares about the ba-bling, ba-bling.

Seems like everybody's got a price. I wonder how they sleep at night when the sale comes first and the truth comes second. Just stop for a minute and smile. We need to take it back in time and forget about the price tag. Only then would we be happy.

Maybe because there's practically no job security anymore OP?

Money buys Apple products.

Apples buy love

There is no job security. Our government is run by corporations and we are quickly becoming slaves...same as in China. When will workers band together and strike?

Back in the day, work was valued, and a man who put in a hard day's work at the dock was considered to be as much of an honest citizen as a bazillionaire.

Funny how that idea disappeared from the public sphere, once the bazillionaires bought up the media.

I'm barely making enough money to get by, and I live very frugally. I hate my boss and I can't quit my job, because I have no money in the bank anymore (don't ask), and I have few possessions.

But I'm happy. And I know money didn't make me that way.

So why am I happy, you might ask? Because I'm up to my eyeballs in anti-depressants!

I like quality things, and travel. Since I don't make a ton of money, I've had to figure out a way to be creative to get what I want. That German car? I never buy new, but find a good 3 year old one that was well maintained.

That antique colonial? Well, it's a lot smaller than my coworker's McMansions, but it's been renovated to a very high standard and yeah, it's unlike what everyone else has. The trips I take are less frequent, but usually overseas. Who cares about going to a beach resort every winter when I can travel to Ireland or Japan every two years?

My point is that money can buy happiness in some respects. It gives you the opportunity to enjoy your interests more fully. It's why I often work 6 days a week. I want what I want. Plenty have said to me that I shouldn't work as much as I do, but then I wouldn't be able to afford the things I like. I also know how lucky I am, oompared to many. Good luck, R11.

Everybdy is not all about money OP. Most people are about survival.
