Did you ever wish for this..? Did you ever felt sometimes that because of not having a lot of money some people down you.. thinks that you are nothing and looks at you in a low level.. that you depends on them because you don't have money and they know that you need them because you don't have money and because of it they take advantage of you... does money rule your life? How important is money in your life.

I think thinking of having lots of money have crossed every person's mind. I belong to an average family. My parents madd t hg eir way to success with gheir hardwork and perseverance. Now, that I have my own family, although we have our oen house to live in and my kids are able to go to school witb my inlaes' help, still I feel tbat I am no whete near the status I had when I wax single. It is always best to earn sometjkng for the family snd be able to provide for thrm eithout feeling the neec to ask help. But I am not as lucky. I do try to make things happen, but I guess luck isn' within reach as of yet. Dreaming of having lots of money, I never thought of it just for my family. I have dreamed of sharing, too with the lesd fortunaze people .

I have felt the importance sometimes. I sometimes envied my rich classmates because they had money to spend as they wished. I would love to buy books that I like , I would love to join a gym but , I find money a problem.

Well, I think your question, speak for themselves. Find me in case some people do not want to have a lot of money? You think that talking to friends, relatives, acquaintances, your, etc. someone to tell you: I did not need money? Well, I, from my point of view I do not think at all! Even if, however, should not be so because in life the money should not be the first place, unfortunately among the people, that this idea! It instill, is an idea that all have.

Money Money Money always sunny in a rich man's world. All we need in this world is money, without money we are nothing but if we have lot and lots of money we are everything. I wish the world without money everything should be free of cost.

Everybody is wishing this sooner or later. No matter if you have enough to survive, plenty or nothing. We all have to deal with things we can not afford. And those who have already less are every day busy with managing with the less they have (or they just spend and spend without paying what is priority first and live with debts). There are plenty of ways to manage with the money you have. Unless you never learned it and you are not willing to safe or look a bit more forward as the day or week or month you are living in. No I never had anyone looking down on me because the fact I am poor. It's even so that most people will not notice it. People take advantage (well they tried for years) because they do believe I have plenty of money, because they know I always manage and find a way to do so. Money rules everybody his life no matter if you are poor or rich. You need to pay taxes, schoolfees, clothes, shoes, electricity (and not just what you used but every month again), road tax, insurances (all kinds of a health insurance you need it's the law over here, same with the car, etc), etc etc etc.. So most of my income is gone 1 day later as I had it. What is left over is to buy food, shoes, clothes, presents, meds, etc etc. with. Last year I had about 40 euro a week with 4 people, now it's 20 euro. Can you imagine how that is?

I have heard that money is the root of all evil...I don't ever wish I had a lot of oney but I have many time wished that my life could be better financially..I just want to live my life where I don't have to worry about how I am going to oay my bills sometimes...But I am os so gratful for the blessings that God has provided and with his love and mercy I will be fine and and live goes on..LOL.. I really don't let anyone treat me in any negative way...People will treat you the way you allow them to treat you...Get you yourself together and don't allow anyone to mistreat you.. You are a person just like everyone else...money don't make us human, having a heart is what does... may God continue to bless you???

That depends on the ones using it, most specally if the person came from a rich family and it's completely spoiled.well, they are just people with money like the thing i watch from "maid in manhattan" some people tends to discriminate base on the status of their lives. indeed, making decisions and having a heart makes us who we are.

Hi neelia! This is the sad truth. Others would take advantage of the mishap of others. That is why we are looking for additional source of income. So that others would not look down on us. Have a great day!

oh I think my life will be perfect if I just have unlimited cash to spare..haha but as they've said nothing is perfect..maybe there is but it would be really hard to find. I guess its all in the matter of your contentment level, because its also possible to be lonely even though you have a lot of money, and I think everybody knows it.

Hello neelia27, money is what makes us get what ever we want or need in our daily lives. a lot of people requires money for a lot of things; like food, shelter, job application, children, schooling, health and many more. but it should not be the center of our lives because we do not long for this world and one day we will die and we can't take those money when we cross over. so, better think about the basic most important thing in life but it's not money.

Of course, almost all of us are wishing to have a lot of money. We are working hard just to sustain our daily needs and to buy and possess all we want to have in life. I grew up in a not so well family but I am still very thankful because my parents are so very hardworking and very supportive with us, their off springs.

Whenever I don’t have a lot of money, I don’t settle to borrowing money from other people because like you said, some people would put assumptions to you and take advantage that they will give you money but in the end, they will just use you because they know you owe them something. If I am stuck in situation, I would rather find ways and means to get money from all shear hard work rather than asking and borrowing it from other people. Although money pays a pivotal role in the society, still it does not count that money rules our life, though it may be a social symbol of wealth and power to others, it’s just a piece of symbol that someone is working hard to satisfy his or her needs and wants.

What I want in my life are love and happiness. But once a time, I had done an online test, the result showed that what I really love was money. I have thought over and over again, and then I think it is true. I have to own money or at least the ability to lead a better life, so that people around me will show their love to me. If I can not make that even my parents will not take care of me. I think I was born as a tool to make money in some degree.
