Wonderful write up Sir, all the point here are very correct and we like to add that somehow, somewhere most people desire recognition so they term to always show up inorder to be recognize, praise because that's what there ego desire/wanted.
Thanks for sharing this @mandate .... It's always best to save more than we spend

Nice writing buddy but permit me to add that a lot of people also over spend in order to please their friends, they want people to realize that they have arrived so the just overspend to show off and the disheartening part is that they suffer the consequences alone.

I always believed that anyone shall save, invest and build their future before they ever start thinking about spending money on this and that, because if you have done building your future by having a project to rely on next to somethings you will be able to buy whatever you want without having to worry a lot about getting poor, and that only works also if you put a budget for everything so overspending for other people will be like normal spending for you because you know this money is coming back at some point.
