“Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t know.”
– Read Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
I once read a book called “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” and there was a quote hidden beneath the covers of that book that has stuck to me, until this very second—it was a quote that taught me the meaning of life. At a young age I was forced to grow up a tad faster than the normal kid, I mean my dad was a jack-ass, so what more do you want from me? But the truth is even when I was going through my worst, I remember times when a brand-new pair of shoes made me happier than getting a good grade—or learning something new.
That’s truly, sad—we live in a generation today where our cellphones give us anxiety attacks. How? What the heck do you do when you think you misplaced your phone? You get a little frantic, your heart starts beating a little harder, you think about the money you don’t have in order to replace what you just lost. That is called an addition and yes, I have found myself patting down my pockets left and right, if I think I lost my phone. It’s a sad but true fact that we have lost the meaning of what really matters.
It’s not about the cloths you wear, the way you talk, walk or dance. It’s about who you are, deep within your soul. Why should you buy things just to impress people you don’t even know? You shouldn’t, because if a person can’t love you for YOU, then you probably shouldn’t be with them anyways, right?
I don’t know about you but I just think being a girl in this generation has become a lot harder, with the unrealistic “look,” females are supposed to have and the 50 shades of different sex position, I have to say—I’m pretty disgusted and beyond disappointed. At least I know, in my future, I will never let my children forget the meaning of love, honor and forgiveness because with just those few traits you get more positive and uplifting one’s added throughout life.
