Sometimes, we get mixed up between what we need and what we want. Needs and wants are different, even if they do not feel that way. You need to understand the difference.
You need to breathe, eat, and drink water. You do not need to breathe vape smoke. Eating right is good, yet milkshakes and all-day sundaes are not much of a necessity. Water is vital for your body, not the bubbly kind that depletes calcium. There are better things that will help you feel and do better.
In balancing the budget and wanting to buy new things, think of what you need, what could make your life better, and what would be a pure luxury that you would get bored with quickly. Choose wisely, and remember you do not have to spend the complete bank account in one order.
Am I trying to throw water on all your fun? No. I am only encouraging a grown-up thought and maybe a challenge.
What could you do better?
