How much long-term commitment are you tide-up?
How long can you sustain if you are not working?
Recently, when I had a talk with my friend, I got a shock on how much burden that she is carrying in her shoulder. She shared that she can’t sustain her expenses even one month if she quit her job. She is committing more than 60% of her salary for housing loan, personal loan and car loan. The balance of the salary for her food & beverage, daily expenses, vacation, and others. She is hardly to have any saving, she spent all her monthly salary.
When I listen to her sharing, I felt the stress and heavy burden on my shoulder. What a hard life that we are using invisible string to tie ourselves become tighten. We can’t even breath well with this commitment. Is it what we want in life? Is it our life purpose? Why not live a simple life and enjoy every moment? Why are we adding stress and tension in our life if we are losing our job? This is totally unnecessary.
How wonderful if we can have “debt free” lifestyle! Why do we need to commit more and more in the name of “investment”? We always think positive about our investment with the assumption that we are sure to gain in future. Are we ready if we are losing everything? It’s hard to predict future. Instead of worry about future, why not live well now?
Live by your mean. Breath freely, and let go all your invisible string! Life is short, live it beautiful and don’t work hard and use up all your precious moment to pay for your house, car and other commitment.
Make use of your life!
