Another rainy day yet again. I was running an errand on that particular day. Happiness, guilt, and frustration were battling each other. Such a jumble and tangle wreck of feeling. On the one hand, you are grateful for what you have. On the other hand, you are feeling guilty for the luxury you are blessed with because you are wasting it on useless things. Or maybe you are just pure unlucky to spend on fixing things as you broke it. Not you. Your friend did unintentionally, so you cannot blame him and you never even did tell him about it. Although you also felt small since there could be a possibility that if you are wealthier than this, such small of amount of money to them would not be a big problem; They could earn that sum of cash back thrice in a month. Life is already complicated as it is. Therefore, why are we complicating it even further with this ridiculous train of thoughts?
I do not enjoy talking about the finance sector of life as I either feel tiny or afraid of appearing snobby. However, I do like thinking about it and then feeling stressful later on. Funny how guilty of I was feeling, then there I was sitting in a cafe and spending more than I already did.
Have you ever wondered what life is like for those who were born with a silver spoon? Do they just throw their debit card around without a second thought? Are they cautious with their expense?
With that being said, I was planning on a splurge already.
I am going to regret talking about this topic since it is a very sensitive topic; at least to me. Pretty sure I am a good saver. After I have moved away from home, that’s when I realized the value of having enough to survive and setting aside for fun. (You see how hard I am trying to avoid using a certain word?) Yeah!) I am not the best person to give advice on this, but what I can tell you is that “Do not go broke by trying to look rich.” Someone said this on the Internet and I cannot emphasize enough how important this is. In these days and age, people just want to brag about what they sometimes cannot afford to impress those who do not even care. Pure stupidity. Work hard. Save. Invest. Live the life you can afford. Stay humble.
Peace out! ✌️
(I have a love-hate relationship with a rainy day. So many thoughts, yet so relax if I was in my bedroom at home.)
