F2F Class Notes (Nemo)[W]

Writing

I love money. Money is able to let me feel safe and confident, it also supports me to make a quick decision to quit a job when I feel unhappy to work with.
I remember when I graduated from university, I didn’t have money in my pocket and I also feel shame if I get it from my parents. That time I feel money is so import but I don’t know how to earn it to pay my apartment rent. I wanted a suit to attend the interview, but I cannot afford it, I thought what a wonderful thing if money rain were dropping from sky.
Another thing triggers to earn money but feel helpless is that my cousin’s son got a serious sick who stay at the hospital for long time. they have to pay very high surgery fee and have to continue to further consult for more than 1 year and the hospital cannot guarantee he can be healed. Money can help them to try different treatment, but Money is not a god.
So now I treat money as nice tool, but not a magic key which help you to get everything you want and make your dream to come true. If you use it in right way you can get a good result, vice versa.
