My father used to tell me that a good job is necessary for everyone but it should depend on happiness you get from your work and not on money you get. Money is just a number which will come from one way and go from another. Of course money is necessary for everyone in this world to survive but it’s not everything.... I feel those words are so true.
Money is like sea water, the more you drink the thirstier you become. There won't be any end for it. It is true that money has power and it talks, meaning money has influence in our society. Money plays such an important role in present society where most of the things are happening only because of its influence. People are being valued and judged by the amount of money in their pocket. A bundle of notes has the power to make one blind and turn people into puppets. If one forgets about the relation then another will forget about the difference between right and wrong. Sometimes the situation forces the person to choose a wrong path.
Really, money isn't everything. There are many things which money can never buy like happiness, trust, love, peace, good relations and so on, which are more important for one to lead a good life. Those make him feel life and enjoy each moment of it. Without these things, money alone will make life meaningless. But now the situation is, if you have money everyone will find reasons to be with you and if you don't have money everyone will find excuses to be far from you! There are people who judge love by the gifts given to them. Of course, there are people who can feel the hidden love behind each small gift.
In our society marriage is beautiful and an important occasion in one’s life. It decides the future of two lives, along with the togetherness of two families. However, here also money plays its tricks. As the groom's family takes a look on the property and wealth of a bride, on another hand the bride's family is more considered upon status and salary of groom. Is it enough for a marriage? Love, trust, understanding between the groom and bride don't have any role? There may be many exceptional cases, but still I am puzzled with such questions. How can money become so powerful to wipe out everything else?
Cash is real king but now it has become the root of all evils. Many people are able to see the reality but they become blind in front of money. Even though people have a luxurious life there are many who are not happy in their life because they face a lack of many other things which encourage a human to live a peaceful life.
In today’s world, the life of a human being is controlled by non-living things like money. Realize that shrouds have no pockets where you can keep money and use it after death. Let’s join the exceptions. Make money as your second priority and love, happiness, togetherness especially humanity should be your first. One may not bring any changes but unity works a lot. Let’s use money properly, let’s never become too busy in making money where you forget about your own life.
Money should always be your slave and let it follow you.
