Money - a blessing or a curse?


Money - it can be both a blessing and a curse.

It can be both a problem and a solution.

Money is a funny thing. Some people view it as a measure of their self-worth, while others view money as a necessary evil. For some people, money is a blessing, while for others, it’s a curse.

Is money a blessing or a curse for you? What do you think when these 5 big letters are said? What pops into your head?

It's a blessing because...

it gives you a better life, more opportunities and, in some cases, a better education. If you have money, you can get the healthcare you need, wheras if you don't... who knows what will happen to you. It gives you a chance to buy anything your heart desires, and if you have lots of money, probably more. You can travel across the globe, conquering and achieving your wildest dreams. You can put food on the table, and have a roof over your head. Money ensures a safe life, as you can pay for insurance and extra high-level security for your home.

It's a curse because...

If you don't have enough, you can end up hungry, and, in extreme cases, without a home in a click of a finger. It can get you in masses of trouble, at some measures... It can cause unfairness, injustice and fraudulant, even crimminal behaviour in the wrong hands. HOWEVER if you have too much it will turn you into a big-head show-off.

The tragic side of it is that the lack of it created such unfair societies that there has been a global movement between countries and people for a better life.

My opinion

I think that as I have written this and really put a lot of thinking towards this, I am torn between the two, as there are many reasons for both blessings and curses, as the lack of it and having lots of it causes trouble!

"If you want money more than anything, you will be bought and sold.

This is a subtle truth Whatever you love, you are" - Rumi
