I am surrounded by a bunch of stuff

“I raised your expenditure on groceries from $150 to $200…that’s what’s allotted for a single person.”
“Uh…okay, I don’t really know what I spend on groceries every month, I guess there are a lot of hidden expenses though”
“Well it’s the amount people normally spend”
“Alright. Yeah I guess I just don’t live very extravagantly”
“That’s alright….that’s life…”
She said that with almost a tone of pity in her voice. I remembered at that moment that I was dealing with the outside world. the world where everyone dreams of living rich fancy lives with lots of expensive things and what-not. This is probably one of the many reasons why I don’t fit into society. I have lost my attachment to material possessions. Don’t get me wrong, there are things I’d like to have. But most of those things are merely tools to enrich my life as opposed to status symbols by which I gage whether or not I’ve succeeded in life or not. If I have things and they are taken from me, I am upset by their loss. However, I am upset because of the inconvenience I experience by their loss and by the circumstances of the loss.

Enjoy life and things while you have them because neither lasts forever.
