Question - (28 May 2017) 4 Answers - (Newest, 30 May 2017)
A male India age 26-29, anonymous writes:

So I'm 25 year old guy.I've got a decent job, a home,a car. I am completely content with my life. Although I would refer to my status as 'middle class'.I look at people my age and who have the same things as me... And they're quitting their current jobs to pursue higher studies or much coveted government jobs... All this in the quest to make even more money(granted some of them were pursuing studies out of sheer interest, but the vast majority I've spoken to are in it for the financial benefits).I don't get it! I feel like I'm lucky to have everything I need and then some. Sometimes it makes me feel that something is wrong with me... Like I'm supposed be hungrier... Should I be working harder to amass as much as I can while I'm still young? I personally feel like it's a rat race...I mean, why not just sit back and enjoy life when you already have everything you need? Am I being naive or is it a problem with society as a whole?

Youcannotbeserious agony auntYou sound like a genuinely content person who is satisfied with what he has instead of always chasing after more. If you already have enough, why would you give yourself stress chasing after more? Especially money?

YOU sound like you have a very mature and sensible head on young shoulders. Don't let others make you feel like you should be like them. If they want to give themselves heart attacks and ulcers chasing after more money, let them do it. YOU know where your happiness lies. Enjoy it.

Phil052 agony auntI don't think you have a problem. People are different and you want a good work-life balance. Trying to turn yourself into something you are not will probably make yourself unhappy.
