..get more money to be able to eat and sleep so that you can get more money to be able to eat and sleep so that you can....

What's the point with this, why are we doing this?

Actually most people I've spoken to seem be feeling just like this. How about you, does life sometimes feel frustrating or meaningless?

I live frugally and save and invest every extra penny.

In about 7 more years I'll have FU money.

Hehe, ok, but if you don't know the point know, why do you think you'll know it then? Wont you just push the same question (maybe) 7 years into the future?

Aren't we just following some manuscript we are taught? Like actors or robots? What if we stop?

There is nothing wrong to earn some money for our basic needs, but to believe that life is about to become rich is definitely a wrong track.

Yeah, true. But we are taught to be money-making robots, who chase entertainment to hide the own emptiness, or whatever way we are feeling bad about it, and we hide it even to ourselves. And most of us think that the solution is to keep on doing that, which is crazy. What if you just stop and look at it all?
