Sometimes poverty is not as unbearable and sad as others might get the impression it is.
I only mention this because I've noticed in my own mind that there have been warped views on this, warped views because I have humored warped values. I think having decent clothes and a nice house is more important than the happiness I aim to get from these things. However I know happiness doesn't have to depend on these things, so I notice my view is warped.
I don't have any experience starving and I wouldn't want any, I was just talking about what people with computers and cars and places to sleep tend to put value on and how they might even feel sad looking at someone who in reality is far better off than them.
True. A simple lifestyle is no sin. We will pay the price for consuming too much of this so-called tasty and rich food. No disrespect to my father, I've warned him about it, he's healthy lad, but he has, just like many of us, become a slave to the taste bud and now he is in a nursing home after suffering a stroke.
