In order to survive in this world, you need one basic thing. It’s not survival skills, it’s not strength, it’s nothing you can develop on your own. The one thing you need is money; a simple piece of paper that can either open many doors to endless possibilities, or completely tear you down. Recently my family has been struggling with money, which isn’t fun to be a part of. Side note, at first I felt bad writing about this because it’s a kind of sensitive and personal topic, but I feel like I need a place to vent and this really helps. Anyway, I find it completely appalling that in order to do ANYTHING in this world you need money. It completely restricts certain people and makes it impossible to do anything. It also separates people. The poor people are poor in all aspects, and the rich become richer. People start to do things, things that would normally seem morally wrong, for money. It gets them hungry and greedy. I feel like this world wasn’t made for people to chase material things we put value into. That’s not the purpose of life. Money takes away the ability for individuals to seek out their true purpose, because they’re worrying about how they’re going to afford to survive another day.
