Be really fussy what you want. Do you need it? Choose wisely. Life is much too short to spend precious time on chasing after the wrong things. You are kidding yourself if you think that things make you happy. I understand that some things are very necessary in life like a warm home, a reliable vehicle, and clothes on your back, but your choices can be modest making less demands on you in the end and making you happier. You need to keep asking yourself do I really need this? Spend your time and energy on things that have really given you happiness in the past like a touch, a hug, a smile, a true friend, and knowing you are loved. Things don't make any of that happen.
