My friend is a classic example of someone who is caught up in the superficial world of material possessions.
He makes a salary of $2,500 a month, which should be enough to cover his basic living expenses and save a bit for the future. Instead, he insists on spending a large portion of his salary on a car, which he believes will attract women.
I’ve known my friend for several years and we’ve had many conversations about his financial situation. He’s always been a bit impulsive with his money, but this latest purchase is really taking things too far. He’s barely making ends meet and yet he’s convinced himself that a car is the best way to attract women.
It’s not like he doesn’t have other options. He could invest his money in something that would actually improve his financial situation, like stocks or a savings account. He could even use his money to start a business or pay off some of his debt.
But instead, he’s convinced himself that a car is the way to go.
To make matters worse, he’s taken on a loan to purchase the car. He’s already paying a high-interest rate and he’s quickly getting deeper and deeper into debt. I’ve tried to explain to him that the car won’t get him anywhere in the long run, but he refuses to listen. He’s so focused on short-term gratification that he can’t see the long-term consequences of his actions.
I’m worried that my friend is eventually going to crash and burn.
He’s already struggling to make ends meet and this new car isn’t going to help him in any way. In fact, it’s only going to make his financial situation worse. I just hope that he comes to his senses before it’s too late.
He say he is going to drive Grab to earn extra but he did it once and that was it.
All this is going to blow back to me when he wants to lend money. Knn, forever one.
Sometimes I am thinking if I should keep this kind of friend in my life.
