That right there is some real talk about the materialistic attitude that has so many of us caught up in the wrong things in life and have so many of us drowning in debt and other financial, mental, and emotional burdens...
Don't get me wrong I like nice things, I want the finer things in life, the BMW, the Gucci bag and pumps...but at what cost to my soul and my mental state am I willing to sacrifice to have those things...
In due time when I can honestly afford it, yes, but right now when I am leaving just to make it...no...that's just my take on the situation...a situation that has many of us

Yeah T. Getting caught up in materialism is one of the worst things that can happen because you're never satisfied. It's one of those things that we all need to watch because society and media keeps telling us that we don't have enough. It's scary how caught up we can get, and we don't even notice it!
