I’m Terrified Of Losing It All

Perhaps you have a comfortable home, clean sheets, an impressive car, or a job. A great husband or wife and kids and let’s add on a white picket fence.

What if one day it all disappeared? And then you overemphasize it’s going to be alright!!!

Is it really?

LUXURIES ARE NOT NECESSITIES

When it comes to luxuries, many people view these extras as necessities. Whether we’re talking about the latest gadgets, designer clothes, or gourmet foods, there are plenty of people who seem to think that these things are essential to living a happy and fulfilling life.

However, one of the great ironies of modern society is that despite all of our luxuries, we have arguably never been less content.

This seems to suggest that our minds are often prone to exaggerating how fragile and vulnerable we really are, causing us to assume that life would be dramatically different if not for all of our material comforts and conveniences.

But in reality, humans have adapted remarkably well over time and can easily thrive even without the pleasures we typically take for granted.

So while luxuries may be nice, they certainly aren’t necessities, and given the state of mind often associated with consumption-driven societies like ours, it’s clear we could stand to benefit from taking a step back from it all once in a while.

The world is constantly stoked by life in a commercial society, which adds to our sense of the number of things that should be considered necessities other than luxuries.

This kind of society goes to extraordinary lengths to get us to feel that we really need to go skiing once a year, to have heated car seats or to fly business class and not to mention a sexy hot wife or a muscular healthy, and loving, kind, sex-filled relationship.

WE COULD, IN FACT, MANAGE PERFECTLY WELL WITH MUCH LESS

Our core needs are much simpler than all this. We could, in fact, manage perfectly well with much less. Not just around possessions, but across every aspect of our lives.

We could cope well with being poor, not being very popular, not having a very long life, and living alone.

The humble life of celebrities:

Believe it or not, there are people in this world that have tons of money, but still, wear normal t-shirts and jeans and drive non-luxury cars to work. It’s surprising that some of the richest people in the world are very responsible for their finances and prefer living humbly without unneeded expenses. Today, I’ll tell you about some of them.

The fact that money is a powerful tool that can be used in many ways. Some argue that we intrinsically linked the desire to amass wealth to greed and self-indulgence, but I would counter this belief by saying that there is nothing inherently evil about wanting to earn more money.

Rather, money is simply a resource that gives us greater power and influence over our lives and decisions.

For example, having financial stability can allow us to pursue dreams or ambitions that might not be possible without sufficient funds. Having money can help us make thoughtful and meaningful contributions to our communities and the world at large.

Whether it’s donating to charity or funding social justice initiatives, the ability to use one’s resources for good is a true testament to the power of money.

So rather than being condemned as an inherently corrupt motivation, we should celebrate our desire for wealth as a valuable tool for action and progress. After all, money has the power to transform the world for the better if we choose to use it wisely.
