    happiness is never measured by how much you have.

    It's about how much you know about contentment.

    YOu can even have the whole world's wealth but yet it dun promise you that you will be a happy person

    contentment = happiness

    I don't have to have the whole world's wealth. cause with the whole world's wealth, a majority of the ppl will depend on me to provide them with their daily needs.... can you imagine if u have the weight of say 5 millions of ppl's worries on you?

    pessimistic is never good.


    Being well prepared in considering all situation is good, but once you let emotion takes over, it clouds your thinking. often is being confused with being well prepared for worst case.

    if i have the abilities to shoulder 5 millions of ppl's worries mean that i will have more than 5 millions of capabilities to ease the worries.

    Yes, you dun have the whole world's wealth but you "grabbed" the "whole" worries.

    U see, one should not "condemn" on the other.

    Why it not good? Why are you so sure? What is right and what's wrong? It's never a right or wrong in life, it's only how look at it and where you looking at it.

    Emotions, we are all humans. No one can be "logical" All choices are made by emotions factors, somehow.

    Emotions are like fire, a good servant but a bad master... pessimism is realli a bad master... cuz it'll drag you down to despair if it's not controlled.

    I think the serious problem is with the baby boomers group. If they want to downgrade and sell, the younger ones can't afford. Everyone will want to dump as they are not cash rich. If we monitor the trend of housing, it has escalated way out of proportion and it is truly no longer "affordable". If one able to pay up for the house fully during the entire working life, but with no savings, is that really "affordable" ?
