Do we need money?

Remember the last question from my online slambook? What do you think about the most? And I answered:

I think about how can I pay all of my debts and until when will I be paying it. I also think about how I can help with the expenses here in our house and how I can treat my parents.

In short, I was thinking about money. Well who does not? Even the rich people are thinking about how they can grow their money by having their own business, investing in stocks or real estates and whatnot. Same thing with the whales in the crypto world. Most of us need money to survive.

When I first started working, I remember that most people in our company would always say to me that I do not need the money. They even thought that I was related to the owner of the coffee shop. My first job was at a coffee shop inside a gas station. Both were under one company so we get to be friends with the pump attendants and even with our admin staffs as their office was just above the coffee shop. That is also where I first fell in love with a pump attendant.

Going back, people would always go to me and ask me if I can lend them some money. Then that is the time that they would say that I am the type of person who does not need money because my parents have money. They also said that I was just probably working because I was bored and that I only needed some experience. Their assumptions were based on how they saw me that I graduated from a known private school, the kind of cellphone that I was using, my parents or my dad's driver would drive me to and from work, I always have packed meals and the list goes on.

I know that my salary before were not enough for myself that I even asked some money from my parents. It only shows that I needed the money right? My salary was intended for my own happiness. But yes, I still lend my money to some of the people in the company and I even joined paluwagan. As defined in this site, paluwagan is the Filipino money-lending system amongst friends and co-workers.

When I first started working, I was able to buy the things that I wanted. I neglected the concept of helping with the expenses in our house nor the concept of saving. It was my happiness over any other things. The mentality of "this is my money and I have worked hard for this so I should enjoy this to my heart's content".

Whenever people would tell me that I do not need money, I would just politely answer them that I do not think there is someone who does not need money. Do you think there is someone who does not need money? There were people whom I have met who said that they do not need money. I do not know what their basis are when they said that they do not need money. I actually wanted to tell them to just give me all their money but of course we were not that close. LOL. Why do you think there are people who would say that they do not need money? Why do you think people make assumptions about other people that they do not need money?

Like I have said earlier that there were people who have made assumptions about me that I do not need money and I on the other hand have also made assumptions about other people as well. They are the people whom I deemed as the lucky ones or the people that were born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Have you also made assumptions about that on other people? Even if I have assumptions about them, I just keep it to myself or tell someone about it but not directly to the person. After giving it some thought, I now take back what I have said that they do not need money. I just do not know with people who said that they do not need it. As for me, I know that we all need money to survive in our day to day lives. Money to buy our basic necessities. Money for our wants. And for some, money for power. But I also believe that there are a lot of things that money cannot buy. However, it will still go down to the fact that we all need money.

From the start I have been very vocal that I need money so that I can pay for my debts. I need money so that I can help with the expenses in our house. I need money so I can provide for my parents. I need money so that I can have a better and brighter future. I need money so that I can buy my needs and wants. Do you think I need the money or not? How about you? Are you the kind of person who needs money? Or are you the kind of person who doesn't? Why do you need it or why you don't?

*By the way, if you are going to say that you do not need the money, can you just give it to me? LOL.

P.S. lead image was from the time I did the Php50 challenge but failed. LOL. I know I have already used this as a lead image whenever my article was about money talks.

Money is basic necessities, we cannot live without it. It's hypocrisy when people deny they don't need money, I need money I am hungry to have more but that doesn't mean that's the only thing I live for.

Di ba? May pang basic needs ay pera ginagamit pambili. Pwera na lang kung resourceful siya na may tanim sila at nasa may tabing dagat para may makukuhang libreng pagkain. Tapos panggatong para makapagluto. Matatanggap ko kung ganun yung lifestyle nung kakilala ko na nagsabi na hindi daw niya kailangan ng pera. Kaso hindi. Todo trabaho, todo raket tapos bibili ng mga mamahaling gamit ultimo mga luxury items. Edewew. 😄

True. Nayayabangan ako sa mga tao na nagsasabi hindi kailangan ng pera. Hindi kailangan pero hindi makapagresign sa trabaho. Hindi kailangan pero lahat ng raket pinapasok. Hindi kailangan pero ang daming pinagbibibili na mga bagay kahit branded or luxury items.

Hahahaha. Ganda ng P.S. ko noh? Kasi sarap talaga sabihin yun sa mga taong nagsasabi na hindi nila kailangan ng pera. Eh di pamigay mo na lang, di mo naman pala kailangan eh. Kaso hindi din naman niya ipapamigay. Katwiran niya pinaghirapan niya.

Kahit sa panahon na toh meron nagsasabi na hindi niya kailangan pera. Ang yabang lang talaga ng dating kapag sinasabi niya hindi niya kailangan ng pera.

Kaya nga ee, kahit pa sabihin na may tanim ka ng gulay jan sa tabi tabi, how about the other expenses right. Hypocrite nalang mga nagsasabi nyan. Ung di daw nees pero in secret nangungutang din, ay ambot kamo. Di naman kasi porket sinabi natin na mahalaga ang pera ee mukhang pera na tayo (slight lang) hahaha sadya lang talaga na yan na ang nagpapatakbo sa lahat. Diba diba.

I know right? We all need money to survive. Not unless someone will work for us and that they would be the one to give us everything that we want then we can truly say that we don't need the money.

I need money but not my priority .. I need God first literally .. Money won't fill up my emptiness but He can provide my needs.. it proven and tested . And the lifestyle that I have - minimalism , I don't need a lot but having alot is a win win and a big bonus. I need money but not to extend that I have to sacrifice my health. I know someone here doing it and keep reminding her that health is wealth 😂. All of us want to help our parents, but we should always consider, what will they feel if we get sick because of over work.

I ask someone before that his answer irritates me but he has a point.

Do you have any goal on your life?

Yes, go to heaven..

And the convo continues.. were both into bible but most of him so I know he's serious. And you know what, money never a big deal to him. Not because he don't need it but because his priorities.

Wait, mauuwi sa article to 😂

Hahahaha. Oo. Mauuwi na nga sa article. Nagulat din ako first time haba ng comment mo. Maiintindihan ko yung iba na magsasabi na hindi kailangan ng pera kasi nakukuha nila ng libre mga pagkain gawa sa pinipitas lang sa bakuran. Tapos naliligo sa dalampasigan. Yung mga talagang may source sila for their basic needs na hindi kinakailangan gumamit ng pera. Meron kasi ako kakilala sabi ng sabi na hindi daw niya kailangan ng pera. Nagwwork lang daw siya para may mapaglibangan. Pero wag ka lahat ng mapagkakakitaan pinapatos niya. Tapos biglang bibili ng mga branded items tapos kakain ng mga masasarap palagi. Hindi nga niya kailangan noh? Ang dating kasi sa akin ng mga ganung klaseng tao is humble bragging. Sasabihin na hindi niya kailangan kasi nga naman may kaya na siya pero todo kayod. Sana nagbrag na lang siya hindi yung nagpaoahumble kyeme pa.

Hahahaha. Ako din minsan iniiwasan ko mahabang comment pero di maiwasan lalo kapag relate na relate sa article. 😅

Kasi kapag sa probinsya talaga dimpleng pamumuhay talaga. Hindi ko pa naman naexperience pero yun ang naiisip ko kasi marami silang nakukuhanan na source of basic needs. Or kung kailanganin man nila ng pera, yung sapat lang.
