It’s not what we have in our life, but who we have in our life that counts. – J.M. Laurence
If you compare your life with the things you own and the people you share it with – you are bound to understand that it is always your loved ones who make it better. No matter how wealthy you are, having absolutely no one to share your joy, sorrow, and troubles with will prove to be a curse.
Haven’t we all heard of endless stories where the rich with no one to love find it difficult to sleep whereas the one who lives hand to mouth has a peaceful, relaxed, and happier life? Why do you think that is?
Money can definitely buy a lot of things, it will help you own all that you have ever wanted, however, what good is that wealth when you are left with a void in your soul. The emptiness of not being surrounded by true friends, family, and love is the worst kind of curse in one’s life.
It is better to have the wealth of friends and family over being the world’s richest man with no one. The warmth, comfort, solace, and love that near and dear ones offer is without a single doubt the greatest gift of all. Always value the people in your life over the things you own.
