People feel secure only if they have huge bank balance, big house, a fancy car etc. The entire life you work hard to achieve these big things but after you achieve it still you won’t feel happy or content as you thought you would be. Why?? It is true that these things can bring comfort and better status for you in the society .But you can’t experience the true happiness just by having all this around you. Imagine you have a big house, big car and at night you need go to an empty house. It will make you feel depressed and frustrated. There are many examples of rich and famous people who have committed suicide. Have you ever thought about it? They have everything they want, all the luxuries in this world they can afford it but then why they are unhappy with their life. It is very evident that the things that money can buy alone will not make you completely satisfied. Apart from materialistic things, people need love. There should be someone to be loved and to love you .It may be anyone, may it be your family, your children, your friends, your lover, be it anyone, whoever it is should be your strong support. Someone you can blindly trust. If you haven’t found someone like this in your life you will never feel happy even if you become very rich. This emotional security is very essential, only then there is a purpose to life. Sadly, the materialistic things that you have earned can’t give this satisfaction to you.
Simple things can bring real happiness
When you strive to go for bigger things in life, you forget simple things which can make you truly happy.”The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them”. Most of us miss these simple things and the moments in life and are in a race to achieve something that ultimately won’t give you anything. We sacrifice our relationship, our passion, our desires to make money. Money can buy everything but it cannot buy the lost moments. At the end when you look back, you should not regret about losing people in your life just because you are running after making money. Having money is not bad, you definitely need it but when the focus of life is only making money, then you are losing something very important in life. You definitely need to prioritize things in life. Family, health and happiness are more important. Give these things more care and value it because once you lose it, it is very difficult to get it back.”Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted.”Money is something we definitely need to live in this world. But don’t make it your sole purpose in life. It cannot guarantee to bring peace, health and happiness. The motive of life should be to make yourself and others happy. People mostly need your time and your presence. Life is short, live it to the fullest.
