Those are truly words we should all live by.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
-1 Timothy 6:10
Almost 6:13, shoot. That would have made this post even better. I don’t quote the Bible much, but now seems like a good a time as any.
People ask me about how much money I want to make. Really that doesn’t matter to me. Long as I can live I’ll be just fine. One of my worst fears is actually becoming wealthy.
Having grown up with rich parents in a rich neighborhood, I’ve seen when money does to human beings. They cease to act like reasonable adults. All that matters is keeping the money and that status that comes with it… with you nose held high in the air. It’s really dumb how such a trivial thing like money can do that to even the most decent human being. I guess that’s what makes me so cool… I’m broke.
My parents are loaded. But look at what they’ve done. 3 kids have tried to kill themselves. 1 has disappeared since. 1 they tried to have locked up without cause (They only have 3 kids by the way… if that confused you at all.) Are they really happy? I really doubt it.
I’d much rather be rich instead. You can be a rich person in a lot of ways. Rich in talent, friends, even love. These people are truly successful. They will live long and prosper.
The way I see it now, I’m sorta rich. I have some good friends. And one person who at least makes me feel loved every time we get a chance to talk. Life my be hard as hell, but something really great will come out of this, I’m sure
Disney felt my thoughts on this I guess.
