The Pitfalls of Being Rich

Being rich must be nice. You don’t have to worry about your bills, food or sustaining yourself. You can afford all you need and almost all you want. However nothing is perfect in this world.

Being rich doesn’t mean you won’t get depressed. It doesn’t mean you won’t feel lonely and empty. Being rich doesn’t guarantee emotional happiness. Yes I know. It’s the age old, “Money doesn’t buy you happiness”. But it’s true! It’s a cliché for a reason!

I mean think about all the celebrities who have committed suicide, not just in Hollywood but in Korea too in the Kpop and the Kdrama industry. Think about the CEO’s who commit suicide. Money really can’t buy you happiness.

To that I quote:  And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for himGenesis 2: 18.

I pray that those who are rich and feel that emptiness find someone genuine to share that life with. Or that they find happiness in their souls, that they find God. It just makes me sad when I think about it and really, I want them to be truly happy.

On the flip side there are those who are rich and are unhinged. When I say unhinged they may be happy with their wealth but they are sharks! Mean and calculated. The amount of homicides committed over money is unbelievable! The pastor at church this weekend was talking about how money can rip families, friends and partners apart and he is right!

When people are like that I honestly don’t know how to help them.

What do you think?

This is my first truly #musings type post in a while. I was thinking about this recently and thought I’d share.

Whilst I’d like to be financially stable I don’t think I want to be rich. I’d rather be rich in other ways, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

 

Ps: I’m sure there are lovely rich people out there, what I’m saying doesn’t apply to everyone. At least not that I know of so I can’t assume.
