More Money More Problems

Can somebody unpack this for me please. We all want money but nobody wants problems unless of course the problem is the money overflowing you don't know what to do with it 😇.

It’s Just like the Spiderman statement “With great power comes great responsibility” or the Bible “ to whom much is given much is required”

The more money one has the more opportunity or doors are open to do whatever one wants.

Access to things you’ve been limited to which can also lead you to uncertain and dangerous places or situations if not dealt with correctly.

That’s why many lottery winners end up worse than they ever were after they win.

I think the moral is discipline and balance.

I found that having more money did not cause more problems. Being debt-free is a nice feeling.
@Hotchocolatezebra When you start out life being poor.... your biggest money problem is how to make more. You (might) think that more money will solve "all your problems."

But having money (in excess) creates its unique set of "problems". Once you experience the feeling of being "rich", you want to always continue to have those (that) feeling. So your "problem" becomes "How do I keep (aka continue to have) all this money."

@Threepio I"m sure that's true of a lot of rich folks.

@Threepio So true. You start having rich people problems. The biggest fear of a rich person is losing it all. That'll sure keep you up at night.

I think one can then become a slave to just more money, more things, keeping up with the Joneses. (Not the Kardashians). I am talking about if one has Big money. But having enough money plus a little for fun is what I would strive for.

@Coralmist Let's not forget donating to the needy also 😃.

I've never had problems like that. Unless I won Lotto tonight. I never check till it comes time to buy another ticket. Being broke has its advantages. You learn to appreciate things more.

@Thevy29 And as long as you haven't ✔️ your ticket the dream is still alive. 🙂

More money more food!

More money equals no bills. Your house and vehicles are paid for. You never have to look at prices when you go to the grocery store. You can do fun things occasionally when friends call. And best of all you have the ability to help others when necessary. 🙂🙂🙂
I feel like after a certain amount, it starts to become less important. Yes you can get a bigger house and a nicer car which are great but after a few months that just becomes your car, or your house. I think it really depends on the type of lifestyle you want to live. For me, if I like where I live, don't have to worry about bills..can go to a restaurant and not worry about what to order off the menu..splurge on a nice vacation once in a while..I'm good with that haha.

@MrBlueGuy Exactly. That's rich in my book.

I don't know, it seems like something goes wrong every time I'm about to get some money. I have a bonus from work coming up in a couple weeks. Earlier this week, my oven went out. Last year it was the dishwasher, the year before the fridge, all timed just around when I would have some extra cash.

This is the second post I'm making here. It's best to read the first before reading this one.

It's important to know that there's never been a macro economic excess of money. All problems regarding money are related to :

a lack of sufficient flow to main thrusts and laterals and excess supplies to minor pivots in the upper galleys.

Improper mixtures or viscosities.

A build up of waste products from excessive power demands.

Rapid cold start operations.

Hydrothermic chemical acidity caused by careless disregard for environmental condensates.

Use of known failed instant fix products.

Each of these has a corresponding effect in the economic engines catalogue.

A hundred years or so back advertisement science and social engineering created the consumer driven economy. It was there that the advertising and social engineering became over used and began eroding the natural supply and demand apportionments as throngs of legal particulates began collecting greater and less useful contaminants into the process, probably.

Donate some

To maintain the balance in society.

Not having money will be more problem.
As Dorothy Parker said, ”I’ve never been a millionaire but I know I would just be darling at it”

If you make 10% more than you really need, life will be beautiful.

Money is the lubricant that flows through the economic engines of the planet. When there's an excess of oil in an engine it can wreck the engines seals, degrade performance, even cause the engine to become seized up and quit ruining.

Likewise with economies. Excess money makes a mess and hurts everyone. Including the very rich.

They're just manufactured problems. Like the people who win the lottery but then end up going bankrupt. Those people don't have a clue and are just ignorant and want to say money causes issues as an excuse for their own bad decisions
daydeeo · 61-69, M
Money reveals who you are, whether you have little or much. Its how you handle it that creates or minimizes problems.
No matter how much or how little you have - give some, save some, spend some.
overflowing with money is not an actual problem — now you have plenty of free time to figure out what you need to do with it, e.g., how many separate banks you need to keep it covered by FDIC insurance

More money would never be a problem with me
