I don't really see what you consider as poor, Let me tell you a little about my life.
I was born in Iraq, In some of the most poorest places. I was born in Romadi, the place the US bombed with chemical bombs. Thank God I did not witness
this as I was in Sweden. Me and my family flew to Sweden about 12 years ago, I was 8 at then. In Iraq we lived in a house made of mud, My father was a
teacher for a few hundred children, We were still poor as the money given by parents for the children's study wasn't enough. But this did not
prevent my father from doing his job, As money wasn't something he valued as precious. My father valued knowledge, This is what he wanted, He didn't
want to become a millionaire, He wanted to become a man with more knowledge than others. We lived on bread every day, If we were lucky we had meat
once a year to eat. We had to order water, And sometimes we had to rely on aid from the community. We played soccer barefoot in a hot desert sand
filled with piece of stones and glass. Why is that even though, In Sweden I live in a very comfortable house, with a car, food enough to last me a
year and money to buy every kind of technical device I want, I'm still not satisfied nor am I happy? The biggest reason is because money doesn't
mean happiness. I was more happy playing in the hot desert barefoot than I am now fully dressed as a soccer player with a real football and shoes that
are custom made for me.
You may have no money, But that doesn't mean you're poor. If you're an intellectual human being, You'd never consider yourself to be poor. As
humans are born poor, They're born poor without any clothes on. When you're dead people won't remember your money, but they'll remember the
knowledge they gained from you. Your actions that helped them, As giving money is a good deed it is always not the best.
And really, Why do rich people tend to go up to high buildings to kill themselves, I thought money bought happiness, Then why would a billionaire kill
himself? That wouldn't make any sense at all.
Take some time, Look at the poor children of Africa or Gaza. If you really consider yourself poor, I think it's a mental issue you're having. You
can't possibly be the poorest person on this earth, I think it's love that you're missing, not money.
