So many fall into the trap of buying material goods to fill a hole that exists somewhere in their lives. The temporary pleasure of purchasing that new toy will quickly wear off and that hole will still be there. No amount of clothes, shoes, cars, or makeup will fill that gaping void in your life. The companies whose sole existence is to make you part with your money by making you believe that you must have this latest piece of consumer garbage. Guess what? As soon as you no longer have any money to spend, they no longer want to be your friend. They will look for some newer demographic based buddy to try and sell their useless tech bauble to and you will be out in the rain wondering what you did wrong. I guess what I’m trying to say is please don’t think that you will ever be able to buy your way to happiness. Instead, use your money to do some good in this world. Help a relative or close friend that needs a hand or even do something kind for a stranger in need and maybe that void in your life will start to fill up.
