Totally agree with you. Short sighted humans are greedy. They want more and more. They are selfish. They use most of their time to accumulate more and more wealth, even though they already have millions. They don't bother about spending their time volunteering to help the old and destitute. They rather spend their free time meeting their fellow rich friends boasting about their wealth. It is the ordinary people who will go to homes of the poor to help clean their dirty and insect infested homes. Sad but true.

If you can't afford a 3 room hdb flat, be happy with a 2 room hdb flat. If you can't afford a bungalow, be happy with a terrace.

At the end of the day, we will all die. We can die at any time, 20,30, 40, 50, 60, 70? Don't be greedy with this world. This world is just an illusion. The more you seek, the more you want. It will never end. Happiness is in your heart. No one have the right to tell you that you can only be happy if you are rich. Many rich people are not happy and many no so rich people are happy. Those of you who want to retire early, just go for it if you're financially independent. As long as your passive income is more than your expenses, you are ok. You don't need to have millions to retire.

Live a meaningful life. Care for others. Make the world a better place. Feed the poor and ophans. Care for the aged and the homeless. True happiness is when you make a positive difference to the world. If the world mourn your death, you have then led a meaningful life.
