And now I shall try AGAIN to get this reply through!!!
I am not,nor have I ever b een driven b y the love of money or the desire to own more and more to Keep Up With The Joneses!! I am content to have the bills paid,a roof over my head,food on the table,clothes on my back,and just a few little luxuries like my old books when I have a bit of spare cash! The big NEED in my life is to be able to care for my beloved dogs who are the world who are my world as I now live alone. There was never a lot of money when I was growing up,but there was heaps of love and happiness,so I never really aspired to more after seeing wealthy people who argued a lot and never seemed overly happy. I do not require the latest fashions to be well dressed,or the most expensive food brands to be well-fed.I do not cdrive so a fancy car means nothing to me either!!! I live a simple yet happy life and despite ill-health,I always can manage to smile and to enjoy the Simple Pleasures!
I think I'm quite materialisticI, like buying things. Money wouldn't make happy on its own, as there are lots of other factors involved, but it would make me happier having more - especially if it was enough not to have to work.
I don't think I'd be happier with more money, I'm a pretty happy person as it is, but I do think there would be things that were easier with more money. I'm not very materialistic at all I don't think.
Hate running out of money, as have been used to having more than enough when working.
Now have to live with 'limited income' & it's giving me the .....!
It's a real 'feast week' & 'famine week' for me, literally!
Hate the situation with a passion!
No - I don't think I am. I have never considered money to be the most important thing in life, apart from the obvious security it offers. I am fortunate I have always been reasonably comfortable financially, although never what you would call wealthy. I think other things are more important than having a lot of money, ie health, family, relationships.
