I believe that the most important thing in a person is how he is communicating, what thoughts and ideas he has about the world. What is the use of money, if you do not have love for people, sympathy for someone else’s trouble, if you do not know how and do not want to really be friends? What’s the use of a steep car, a mansion in a prestigious area with a warm pool and peacocks on the terrace, if you’re still stupid, not versed in art, a limited person? You, in that case, are just an animal that accidentally becomes rich and portrays a rational person, while remaining... in fact a boastful macaque or an orangutan thug.
It is not necessary to pursue the luxury of the situation, the external shine, it is better to focus on expanding your horizons, developing your positive qualities, willpower, acquiring true friends, being, not appearing. And then, in time, everything else will come: both material well-being, independence from circumstances, and the ability to stand up for oneself.
Of course, my thoughts are somewhat chaotic, but I stand while at a crossroads, although it seems to me that I have already chosen the most correct direction for myself – to develop my mind and positive qualities of character, and then the rest will follow!
