I'm very upset right now. Since young I've been told to study hard because good grades can guarantee me a good job and a good job leads to high pay..until recently my mindset has changed because I no longer want to study merely for a high pay job..I realized how messed up this world is and how messed up the whole concept of money is .. I've always wanted to help others and find a meaning in my life..I want to do something that I can relate to but sadly my family doesn't understand this. Money is important yes it is but it's not the major motivator for me anymore. When I was having this conversation with my sister who is a working adult now.. she told me she dislikes her job but it gives her money so she will do it. Gosh you cant imagine how awful I feel about this.. it's like everyone around me is working for money.. I don't want this. Life is too short and I want to do something that helps people.. not just working for money and then what .. generate more money for some big companies who only care about profits?! hell no. Stop telling me I should be filthy rich in my life..Stop telling me I should earn a hell lot of money.. it's bloody not the point of life okay?! Why do we have to be slaves to money? Don't do this. Don't inject this kind of poisonous thoughts into your children's mind. Why is it so hard for all of us to realize that materialism is what's killing us slowly. We only Iive once and I want to make full use of it. I will earn a living and live too.
