*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!*
From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless if it’s moral or not, if it’s a good thing or not, if it impacts others or not.
Besides this control it has over everything, it also has the ability to f*ck with our minds. It makes us question our decisions and our behavior. For the last couple of months, it bounces on and off my mind and it makes me question my work. I’m wondering if I should concentrate my “extra time” on writing or if I should do some freelancing stuff or if I should buy useless things or not. It keeps making me question if I’ll ever be to that point of freedom and what I can do to get there.
Yeah, you probably guessed it: the world-ruler is money. And yes, it’s horrible, but that’s how it is (if you don’t believe me, try buying food and groceries with nice attitude instead of money or try paying your bills with kindness). Because of this horrible situation, some people have horrible behavior just to get it.
But as horrible as it is, money can do great things as well. Just like a hammer. It can be used to build a house or it can be use to crack a head. It’s the handling hand’s decision (of course, people are not willing to do horrible things to get as much hammers as they want, but you got the point!).
Even though above I mentioned it’s horrible that money rule this world, it’s actually not so horrible. The horrible part is what people are willing to do to get them. That’s the terrifying part. And furthermore, the lack of a clear path in this world is what push people on the edge and that’s where money have the biggest power to control someone.

Bottom line, money can bring the best of people or the worst of them. That’s why money is the world-ruler.
How many of your decisions are somehow controlled by money?
