Does money control you?

I just checked myself into this mental health place recently on an outpatient thing and they prescribed me the little white ativans, now I know that I'm a walking nervous breakdown waiting to happen, but instead of taking the pills like I should, i've just been selling them, in fact, I havn't even taken one. The money is good, I need my energy drinks and my sodas and my little microwave burritos. But the money keeps making me do stuff like this just to have her, money talks man, that's a true fact to me. So how do you guys feel about her, money that is.

i hate the fact i need it, because everything i want requires it.

i have to live my life around money. though i try not to. i tend to live when i have it, and when i don't, i don't.

I love money. I intend to make lots of it. I am making money whilst I sit here. I am making money when I sleep

I make a detailed budget after every financial change. I just use it as a guideline to bear in mind, however. Penny pinching is painful for me; I hate the feeling I grew up with: that I CAN'T do or have normal things b/c of limited money. I work full and part time in order not to have to stick strictly to a budget, and it seems to be working well as I've got the recommended three months' savings and a reasonable amount of disposable cash.

Mo money mo problems, but no money even bigger problems. Wht is it with people and their fear of wealth? Is it because you are afraid to try and fail?

Money is great. But it will not buy happiness.

I control myself. Money does not.

I control my money. Even thou- it tells me it hates me.

I control money, not the other way around. Then again, there's nothing I really want or need, so I don't have a reason to get money.

Maybe it's a sheer hatred for money in general.

i'm not scared of being rich. im scared of being in the red.

i suspect most people hate money because they don't have enough of it.

my parents are exactly the types of base creatures to be controlled by money. their little nutralife pyramid scheme has started to fizzle out, so rather than cutting their losses and canceling those monthly autoshipped, autobilled shipments of "product inventory", they're trying even harder to make the damned things work.

they had a huge fight a couple of weeks ago over this, and concluded that they didn't have the "know how" to run a business. fortunately, there is a plethora of mlm instructional/motivational materials on the market to guide them. I'll have to describe these things some time in more detail, it's like the high school motivational speaker from hell telling you to have a positive attitude against all odds and you're guranteed to succeed or some kind of garbage like that. it's all the same.

so, friends, lest you forget: if money controls you, you can turn into my parents.

I don't hate money. I deal with rich people all the time - I don't think they are happier than me in any sense. I need enough to get by.

I agree... I deal with vice presidents, and ceos all goddamn day... and they are not any happier than I am (as a lowly peon in the company). I make enough to support my wife and child... we dont have much but the bills get paid and there is always food on the table... and sometimes a little extra. what else would I need?

Wouldnt it be nicer not to have to work anymore when you dont want to? IMagine being able to say, fuck it, lets take a month off to go sailing around Italy and Spain. Thats what money does. Being a lowly peon means you get to make other people rich so they can do that with thier families while you have to scrounge for Xmas cash.

Money is great.
