The High Price of Materialism
Materialism is all bad, it’s so sad that things and the fear of losing those things can make people so crazy. Materialism can lead to depression, anxiety, and general unhappiness. Also, any concern for the wellbeing of our environment goes right out the window.
I think people are inherently good and that there is a direct correlation between how much money people have and how happy they are. I have spent some time in low-income areas, and I have personally witnessed the positive energy, and the joy people experience when they don’t waste their lives worrying about things. A few bad apples can spoil the bunch, so let’s be good apples and set positive examples like turning off the screen on your device once and a while and going outside (Ignore the ads) or spend time with friends or do things like planting a garden or brewing your own batch of Hard Apple Cider. The point is people are important not stuff.
What are your thoughts on materialism?
