HAPPY and POOR?

A summary: the world’s obsession with making money. All our lives we strive to earn more and more, scared that one day we will lose everything. We see famous people living the good life, making us jealous and more depressed over our lives. We don’t discover our true selves because we’re too busy with dollar signs in our eyes. We exist but we don’t live.

To be honest, lately I’ve been almost obsessed with money. I can’t bring myself to buy/do anything that’s not cheap, even if I really want to, because I imagine my bank account dropping. I see celebrities chilling on the beach a few times a year, partying like there’s no tomorrow, and buying anything in the world without looking at the price tag, and feel sad that I haven’t been on holiday for almost five years and rarely buy myself something.

Can we be ‘happy’ without being rich?
