Have people gotten greedier in this day and age? Have people started focusing too much on materialistic items in their lives? Buying brand names, a BMW, a big house, fine dining, expensive clothes and flashy jewelry. Is it really worth it? Why do these things make us feel better? Is it because we want to feel more superior to everyone else? It all just seems so superficial and shallow. The fact that you need to feel like you need to prove to yourself and everyone else that you are worth something. That’s just silly. Is our self confidence really that low? Or do we secretly crave attention? What do these items really mean to us? Do they stick with us like the way we love our best friend? Do we think about these things everyday like the way we can’t get over an ex-lover? Or maybe it’s just the fact that these are our little but expensive guilty pleasures in our life. And probably only temporary too. They are like some kind of drug, they make us feel good for a bit. But really in the end we need to take a good look at ourselves. What we believe we represent to the world. Do we really need these things in our lives? Are we too selfish, self centered, superficial and materialistic? Probably. But at least I look good? And at the same time the world thinks I’m a prick. Ironic.
