Living without money is probably doable but goodness gracious who would dream of such a life for themselves? There are so many clothes to buy, so many puppies to be bought, so much food, cars, houses… Everything is for sale! Which is why we all love money this much – everything is about it. You are reading this now because you had money to buy yourself data or a WiFi router perhaps. Despite the wonderful things we can buy with money to make us a little happy, some people have such bad intentions with it and it is quite saddening when you come to think of it.
In some relationships, money becomes the only thing that makes the relationship bearable because they would spend nights in 5-star hotels, eating in fancy restaurants and being VIPs in every event. But if all of that money were to be taken away from them, there probably wouldn’t really be any reason for them to stay together anymore – they’d start fighting more often and avoidance would become their mutual habit.
Also, money automatically gives an individual power – they feel as though they have control over everybody and whenever they command their peers to jump, the peers are expected to ask, “how high?” as quickly as possible. A person who is moneyed is one of those people who can completely alter your plans – if you are planning on staying at home and studying or just watching a movie, they will holla at you to accompany them to wherever they want to go.
They know they will pull you in with phrases like, “What are you going to drink?”, “I’ll fetch you and bring you back”, “Call a cab, I’ll pay” and (our favorite phrase) “What do you want to eat?”. Their power runs so deep – you know that when they say that they want to leave, you have no choice but to get up and leave too. Whatever you say goes when you are well known for being in possession of a lot of money.
Then again, money promotes corruption – you can get in and out of anything with money. Do you want that well paying Engineering job but you only have a qualification in Hospitality? Or do you desperately want that drivers license but you have failed it at least 5 times already? Fear not, for money shall save you.
Then it helps you get out of situations – did you murder 3 people and about to face the consequences of your actions? As long as you have money, watch how you will be told that you are free to go while you are actually still in the process of getting into your orange overalls.
The mass has gotten so obsessed over money, it has become one of the primary things everybody wishes to have in abundance – of course we all need money to sustain life because well you need to pay rent, travel to work/school via public transport or load petrol into your car tank. But these days we have gone so overboard – we have even adopted a habit of pretending as if we are balling in endless money just so that we are respected, earn power and become ‘life goals’.
Money will forever and always be an important thing though. The sad truth is that, you can spend all day numbering all the bad things about it and you can scream and shout at the top of your lungs that, “Money is the root of all evil” but you will still wake up at 5am the next day to go make yourself money. It’s such a shame how money just controls us.
