The Legendary Debate: Love vs Money (Blaise Allaine V. version)

The best use of life is love. Thus, if I were to choose which is more important between money and love,it would be love.

Life is all about relationships. Everyday, we interact with our family at home or our friends and colleagues outside. This just mean that we need the attention of others as much as they need ours.

People would say that we need to be practical and so money is more important than love. But money is just temporary while love is eternal. Money may let us have the capacity to buy a lot of things but these things cannot give us the love we need. And yet, others would tell us that money can also buy love. I don't believe in this because love is not conditional. You have to love someone without asking for something in return. So, if money has made someone turn to you, it's not love but rather gratitude or paying back. In the long-run, money and wealth will just run out. But love, it always spring in our hearts and does not get any lesser even when you give or share it to others.

One thing also that we must be reminded about is the uncertainty of our death. On our last day, when we will just be lying in our final moments, it is not our money, jewelry, or any material possessions we want to be with but rather the presence, care and the love of the people we value and cherish the most. For it is the attention and the time people give us that we feel loved and cared. Although wealth and material possessions can grant us temporary delight, it cannot be compared to the happiness we feel when we are loved by the people we also love.

I agree in everything you say. Money is something but it isn't everything.

What made you create this post by the way? just curious. hehe :D

Love and money should not be compared for love can give you happiness and money can be the source of life. If love is life then you need money to live... When death is near then throw away your money :P

Chai said...

Throw away jud? pwede i-charity muna or ihatag man lang sa akoa?

If you agree with me and perceive my idea then what you feel now is the same feeling when I created this post.

@mygen
the term "happiness" and "source of life",for me, is a comparison not a contrast. Therefore you compare both terms and chooses money over love...

Kamong duha ba gitripan ninyo akong post. Pagbiko mo ug pink oi!lels.

Murag lalum man gud kaayo ka og gipaghugutan nald ba. hahaha. Murag daku kaayo og impact sa imong imong post. Well, kung unsa man na...basta! There's always something in life that money can never buy. But dili jud ko mabuhi nga way money. kung pwede palang earn more and more and more and mooooore... hehe

@ronald - cguro imohang pasabot is between extravagant life and love. If that so then yes, love is more important than that.. but when in terms of money, "Bahala na walay labing basta dili lng jud saging" mag-init pud atoang ulo ana kung isang kahig isang tuka... hahaha

Wala man ko nag-ingon nga walay money. It's just that ang love mas naay edge over money para sa atong life. Overall importante jud ang duha kay part of our existence na jud na... Therefore ayaw nag karingga diha ba.panagsa ra ko magpachar2x.haha

@mygen

Hahaha. Kung inlove mo sa isa't isa money will come eventually. Because as the saying goes "When love is present,much can be accomplished"... I don't know if physics would agree but I want to say that love is the strongest force on earth.
