“A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money” – John Ruskin

Money Money Money !!! The world is going crazy after it. Everything has become secondary today in front of these pieces of paper. ‘Love’, is something we all search for, we all look for, and we all crave for. But I am confused with the present state of affairs where love, relations, friendship and even being together is directly proportional to money. People killing family members, friends, relatives, husband/wives for money (sometimes even for a very meagre amount).

I agree, money is important, rather very important in life, but it is not the ‘only’ thing or consideration to be with someone. I have seen girls making rich boyfriends for money, for expensive gifts and so on. And the day they stop spending money on them..well, end of the relationship. People who are so called ‘rich’, keep relation with those who match their financial status and look down upon or ignoring those who are below them in terms of money. Relations make or break with the amount of money someone holds in his pocket.

It has always amused me. Isn’t it strange? People have become so money minded, their wishes and desires have become so high and all they want is just money or be in contact with people who have it with them. Relationships, love, feelings, empathy are all things of the past now. Everything is losing their true value and meaning from the hearts of the people. All the things required to be called human vanish when it is about money. These words are dying a miserable death under those stacks of paper.

I am a believer in love. I don’t remember making friends or even talking to people in general based on their financial status. Money has always been secondary to me. Even when I think about marriage, money is never the prime factor. I guess I am educated enough to earn. I also don’t believe that only a man is responsible to feed his family. If a girl has earning capacity, then she can very well support a family after marriage on her own. When we cry so much for gender equality, then why not equality here?

It’s a very weird society we live in. I never understood this mindset of people based on money. Many won’t accept this fact but it is a bitter reality. Have our desires become so big, have our lifestyle and wishes reached to that level that we forget everything and remember just money? Money corrupts mind and a corrupted mind is never sane.

Money can buy a lot of things but not love and feelings. Can’t we all think of keeping the relationship alive in our hearts irrespective of the money someone has in his pocket or bank account?  Can’t we love and respect a person for what and how he is and keep aside his financial status? Can we stop the mental torture someone has to go through just because he doesn’t have what is required to be called ‘rich’? Can’t we value people over money? When we will understand money is just a piece of paper, we have it today; we may not have it tomorrow. People, if we value them, will be always with us, but not money. Better to invest time and feelings in humans rather than a piece of paper. Having a rich and a big heart is all what matters.

Waiting to see the time when we stop the ‘it’s all about money, honey’ thing.

“Money has never made man happy, nor will it; there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has, the more one wants.”  - Benjamin Franklin

    I've always wondered why people are so hooked on money. Your post has really summed up the downside and the evil side of money very well!
