We could go on and on and write more reasons why people matter and things don’t. No, even things matter, but in comparison to people you love, things do not matter. In life, you would be faced with situations where you need to choose between love and materialism. Choose love. Love will bring you happiness, the kind of happiness we speak about on this happiness blog. The kind of happiness things buy you would be way shallow than the happiness people who love you would bring to your life. Don’t let them go.
