People are obsessed with money, and I hate it. In the US and Korea, I feel like people treat you differently based on how much money they *think* you make. It's pathetic!🤔

I quit my job recently, and I feel pressured to quickly find another job (as if making money is my only life goal). Honestly? I'm not really looking for a new job. It's OK to take a break. Not working doesn't mean you're "lazy" or "unproductive" or "wasting time."

In fact, I'm busy!😅 I'm taking certification courses for my new career, working with non-profits, and creating design projects from scratch. I'm finally taking a risk and trying to change careers.

So why is what I do only valuable once a company starts paying me? We don't need money to prove our worth. We shouldn't value other human beings by their paycheck.

Your salary *doesn't* tell me if you're a good person or not. Why do we automatically like or respect someone just because they have money? Not all of them even worked for it! Think about it.

    @Son I think a happy life is also unsustainable😅 We should embrace all our emotions equally instead of only searching for strict definitions of happiness. But I understand what you're saying. Thanks for your positive comment :)

    @Ibsan David Yes, that's a great point. I am very privileged to live this life. I also don't have a family to take care of, and I know a lot of people around the world are having a hard time with covid-19 and unemployment right now.😞

    @yongskie It can buy a certain level of comfort, but I agree. Getting more and more money isn't going to make you increasingly happy. There's always a limit.

    나는 사람들이 돈에 집착하는걸 싫어합니다 미국과 한국에서 돈을 얼마나 버는지에 따라서 그 사람들에 대한 행동이 달라짐을 느낍니다 참 한심합니다!

    So why is what I do only valuable once a company starts paying me? 왜 내가 하는 일이 회사에서 돈을 받아야만 가치있는 일입니까?
