Amazingly and meaningfully written. I have always tried to convince the people around me, even the woman I loved, about how materialistic joy fades quicker than non-materialistic such as health, love, exploring and learning, until I lost everyone around me.
After I read Ego is the enemy by Ryan Holiday, my whole life about the materialistic world has changed.
Same after reading choose yourself by James Altucher.
If only people read those two books, the meaning of life would directly touch their souls.
Thank you for a great valuable post.
