I’m older and more realistic
I’ve stopped being a snotty idealistic brat who said “Money can’t buy happiness!” And “You all rely too much on money—you’re superficial.” I’ve realized money actually saves peoples asses and can be a form of love. As I sit here, I feel a sense of security because I have savings. That’s money. What I mean is, I’ve outgrown some of my younger, more idealistic views of “I can be happy with next to nothing.” Nobody was asking about happy; the question should have been “Can I survive with next to nothing?” Nope! I have new respect for the family who has financially kicked butt, who I used to look at as snobs.
