ive actually noticed it that my major problems are always money matters grrrr!!! hmm maybe because all we do here on earth are always money matters. like we cant do anything without money right? anything we do money is always the partner. its like we cant live without it. how can we buy food if we dont have money? how can you go to the office if we dont have money to pay for the fare? money is the key of everything. but i dont want to think of it anymore. i just go with the flow and work work work. LOL.. have you noticed the same thing guys?

I understand what you are saying but money has never been my biggest issue. Not that I have a never ending supply of it. But I've always believed that I would be provided for and I always am. I get money from the strangest places. Even now I have unclaimed money from my state's treasury department, and I have no idea where it came from. I think that we have the most problems in the areas that we think about the most. For me I think about my relationships a lot and thats where I have my biggest problems. You should stop thinking about it so much. Has there ever been a time that you needed it and you didn't get it? Has there ever been a time that you starved, because you did not have money for food? Or when you were evicted? If you look at your life, you will see that when you need it, you were always able to get it. And that should make you realize that you will always be financially taken care of.

WE shouldn't be too obsessed with money. In life you will find people that will die for it or kill for it, but in the end, they went after something that is, in the and of itself, meaningless. We all know that money is an innocent means of exchange. t replaces trading tomatoes for shoes. It simplifies the bartering process. What you do with money and why you want it are what counts.

Have you ever read Rich Dad, Poor Dad? It's a great book, and according to it, most people are so bad at handling money and have suge huge issues with it, because they were never educated enough about money and finances. I honestly think there is some truth to that. I was never taught how to handle money in school, and while my parents taught me some, it was really not enough, I had to learn everything myself, sometimes the hard way!

coz in every thing that we do nor in every step of our life need to support with money unless your living a simple life in the province where you own land and house and a farm but if not then its really a big issue specially if your just renting coz you need to pay your rent, pay monthly bills, buy foods to eat, buy other things that we need. without money and without our own house and land nor farm then i dont think we can survive as even water that we drink we still need to pay it. we have lots of needs and sometimes our salary or income is not enough for that thats why it become a major problem and issue specially if one of our family got hospitalize and we dont have enough money to pay for medication nor hospitalization. and as you said, you cant go to work if you dont have money to pay for your fare as you cant just walk going to work unless its just nearby but what if its too far.

Well, i wonder who is the man who invented money. I really wanna ask him or shout at him why he did so. I feel if it is not invented, sometimes we would not have many problems. We can have some other way for people to live upon..

Well, I have come to know 2 groups of people, people with money, and people without. I personally have no money (living paycheck to paycheck). I am not proud of it, but yes, I do wish I have more. It is just very sad to see myself in this situation where I am always out of money before the pay period comes. And it is not like I spend on anything that I want, or luxury stuff. It is just your normal daily spending, lunch, commute to work. Yes, I can probably save $10-20/week if I bring home from food, but that means that I have to make extra the previous night in order to bring more to work. Then you have those who have lots of money, and one of their complaints is that "money doesn't make them happy". I wish that I can money and then worry about not being happy.

for me money is not the biggest problem i could ever have. i could learn to live simple and live with the basics. but i need money because i have some major problems right now. i just try to earn so that money won't add to my current problems. if only these other problems are solved i could live simply and not be bothered with not having a lot of money.

money makes me happy so i am not so happy right now. it makes me happy if i have more of it that i can buy more foods for the family. it makes me happy if i have enough of it that i can buy medicine for our health. it makes me happy if i have extra of it that i can give the poor so they can at least buy something to eat. it makes me happy if i can give my wife enough of it to pay the bills and the rent.

Its not money that is the problem it is greed that is the problem. Everyone wants to get something in return for exchanging items or to provide a service. Many people would not be willing to give away their items if they can get something in return.

Sigh! Money is our major problem because we always think that money is for spending only. So the tendency, once we have it, is to spend it like crazy. Like there is no tomorrow. But if we decide to save more, our money problems will eventually disolve and permanently go away. Always remember: Beware of uncontrolled spending, even of tiny amount because a small leak can sink even the largest of ships.

Money has always been a major problem because we can't seem to have any. I can speak for myself. The lack of, or the insufficient amount of money has always been a big deal for me. Now for those people that already have money, their problem is that they can't seem to have enough. I guess that's just how the world goes.

It would be a lie if I tell you that money is not a matter to me. I used to work in a Japanese owned company 4months ago, and now we are in our indefinite leave because we do not have big projects at the moment, though at some point I am contented having just a little sum of money on my pocket but not to deny that on the other side money is my major problem when it comes to emergency issues like when the kids need medications and etc. All unexpected expenses are always the reason why money is always a major problem in every people's life.

this is because money is in every facet of our lives like you mentioned. while money cannot buy you love or happiness, you need money to survive.

Everybody does but not everybody cares. It's pretty much an easy thing to do when you have enough money, but when you don't....That will be a big problem.. But I just love people who don't want to think about money that much and keep on doing their jobs.

Unfortunately, we do need money for everything that we do. It seems that the more technology we have, the more expensive it is to live, not only for the needs to survive, but also for the wants and desires for the new gadgets that become available every day. We live in a "convenience" world where we pay dearly for things to make our lives easier, but making our lives easier has a great cost attached to it. If we had lived 100 years ago, we wouldn't have: electric bills, water and sewer bills, gas bills, phone bills, internet bills, cable bills or Direct TV bills, car or truck payments, or insurance premiums to name a few. We also wouldn't be spending our hard earned money on so many entertainment items. But we have grown accustomed to having all these things, and it would really be tough if we had to do without them. Oh to have lived a much simpler life!

because everything we need in this world need money. specially if you live in the city and dont have your own house and lot then it will be very ahrd for you coz renting an apartment is already expensive aside from the fact that we still need some to pay our bills and basic necessity like food, clothes and etc. unless we live in the farm were life is only simple, as we have house there and farm for our food.
