5 Things You Should Never Pay For

Approval – If you pay for approval are you really getting approval at all? One of the main things wrong with paying for things like approval is that you never really can know if you’ve received what you paid for. For a price, there will always be a line up of people who will say whatever you want to hear even if it’s not genuine. If you find yourself searching for approval you should never have to pull out your pocketbook, a great place to start your search would be online looking for sites with forums or chat rooms that align with your interests.

Happiness – Your happiness should never be dictated by your bank account. Fresh air, your favorite song, close friends, or a good book should be enough to make most people happy and it is essential for everyone to have something in their life that makes them happy even when they are broke. Finding yourself searching in vain for happiness can be a sign that something more serious might be going on and it could be time to have a discussion with your doctor about it.

Love – Although it is more stereotypical of males to use the money to attract a better mate it is something that no one should, under any circumstance, consider being a good option for love and intimate companionship. It goes back to the never really being able to know if what people say they feel is truly genuine and with love that can cause a lot deeper problems. Not knowing the truth can ultimately lead to feelings of resentment, a higher tendency toward jealousy, and even causing your relationships to turn completely toxic.

Love is the one market where you should leave your wallet at home and just allow the whimsy of moments to lead you to where you need to be as you need to be there. Friends – All friends like to impress each other and treat their friends where they can but at a certain point, it becomes a matter of are they really your friends, or do they just like what you do for them? If your friends aren’t doing what they can for you it might be time to grow suspicious of whether or not they really are your friend or are just hanging around for a free ride.

I have to highlight that I didn’t say that they aren’t your friend if they aren’t reciprocating, but if they aren’t giving what they personally can afford to give to a friend whether that be their help re-arranging a room or giving you some great new recipe if they care enough to give back to you genuinely they might just be one of the good ones.

Sex – A Taboo topic in the US and Canada it is definitely not a legal trade and is generally shied away from even in the conversation. It is bad practice to ever directly pay for sex, wherever there is a profit to be made on sex vulnerable people will be put in dangerous situations for that money. Some people pay for sex indirectly by amorously spending money on the person they want to have sex with. This can sometimes lead to consensual adult fun for the person spending the money but it won’t always end up that way and you can’t ever feel entitled to sex for simply spending money on someone. Being one of the leading excuses for rape this feeling of entitlement can lead to serious mental health issues and should be avoided at all cost.
