Before coming to the money part, let’s go back to the era for some time when money was not into existence and let’s analyze how people survived those days? There was barter system in place where people used to exchange their goods in order to suffice their needs. Later to standardise the whole exchange system, coins were introduced and later the more modified version is currency.
Yes, money is everything.
Again, in this competitive world money is the need and its demand varies from the state of livelihood. A farmer needs money to grow crops, a beggar needs money to fill the empty stomach, a middle class person needs money to take care of his/her family well, a richy rich person also needs money to become richiest rich..Hence certainly there is need of money and that need varies from person to person.
Money brings in a sense of safety and calmness as when we see to have money in our bank account we feel confident. We work 9 hrs a day and sometimes slog for more than 12 hrs to earn some extra money even when we do not like our boss., the only factor is Money.
Money defines your position in society, and higher the position, more respect youhave. Who do not want to be respected? In colleges a student merit is judged by his/her package what he received during campus placement. If you have money, you are King.
No, Money is not everything:
Can you buy everything with money? Can you buy happiness? Can you buy a relationship? Can you buy love? And moreover, can you live without all these? We are social animals which means we are born to socialize and definitely no money can buy socialization.
“With money you can buy a house but not a home; With money you can buy a clock but not time; With money you can buy a bed but not sleep; With money you can buy a book but not knowledge; With money you can buy a doctor but not health; With money you can buy a position but not respect; With money you can buy blood but not life; With money you can buy sex but not love.” (Unknown)
Money is also a root cause for many evils like these days most of the crime happens for money. Money makes you greedy and jealous and slowly you start losing respect. Money can be earned but respect can’t be.
Money has both advantages and disadvantages. We need to prioritize our life and earn sufficient by keeping a balance between other aspects of life too. Also, we should not go greedy for money that we start compromising on relations, love and health as at the end we human are social animals. If money can build you, it can destroy you too… So my dear friends, net net is earn money but keep a balance in other aspects of life too as Money is not everything in life.
