The saying goes, “Money cannot buy happiness.” Do you agree or disagree? Why?
Given my recent lack of material desires, I’d have to say, “yes.”
I’m tempted to speak to my psychologist about Maslov’s Hierarchy of Needs next visit.
For so long, really since about two years after my diagnosis, I expended nearly all of my effort trying to meet the bottom two levels.
Now that I have what I want, certainly on the lowest level, there’s nothing else I really want.
I am going to live until I die, whether I have nice things (which money could by) or not.
I could complain that I have little input in much of anything in my life, but that’s ultimately an exercise in futility.
So I don’t waste time on it.
Or, to put a finer point on it, I’m now not concerned about money, and there’s nothing on which I’d like to spend it. Whatever I’d get probably wouldn’t make me happy. So why bother?
