Therapeutic Word of the Day: Money

“We all need it. Question is, do you rule it, or does it rule you?”

Money. some people love it, some hate it. I have seen money become a God to some who sacrificed their families and lives to it. One fact is true: we all need it.

Therefore, the question is, how do we manage it? Money = power as it allows you more options. Someone with money has many more options in life over someone who does not. Money should be a means to an end, meaning money itself should not be a final goal. For example, I want money so I and my family can be secure. I want money so I can one day open an outpatient treatment center for Internet Addiction. Money has a purpose, I do not want money so I can see a large number representing my bank account, I want money so I can use it to help myself, my family, and others.

This is a healthy goal when it comes to money. Wanting more money just to have more money is greed. If you cannot control greed, it will take from you.
