    "Money is everything, WELP!! it's kinda not true" could a mod fix that for me please :)

    The last two weeks really showed me a lot about life and what's really important I mean don't get me wrong I won't stop chasing the money but in the last 2.5 weeks this is what been going on with me.

    1. My aunt was in a car accident she was placed in a coma for 3 days then she died on the 4th day, so while getting adjusted to that

    2. One of my favorite cousins (Octavia) Had been suffering from cancer for about 1.5 years she died 3 days later after my aunt passed on.

    3. While trying to get myself together from those 2 losses without warning no signs no nothing...my grandmother (mother she raised me) was rushed to the hospital for a headache
    her high blood pressure was and her sugar level was low, which forced her into a heart attack and her organs begin to fail, so needless to say she also past away.
    Her and Octavia funeral was held on the same day same time, that's how close there passing's were.

    The last conversation I had with my grandmother was on january 28 her birthday I gave her a call to tell her Happy Birthday we talked for a little, if someone had told me that would be my last conversation with the women who raised me i would have kept on the phone forever.

    So much success to all you guys..and remember one thing if you don't remember nothing else go to someone you know who loves you and just say "I love you" even if there a complete moron cause in the blink of a eye it can be taken away and unlike money you can't get it back.

    Tough time for you dude. Stick with your family that remains during this time - it's the best medicine.

    A few years ago my brother - who was a freshman in college - lost 8 people close to him in the span of 9 months. He was kind of depressed for a while. It was all young people too - just random bad stuff happened. Car accidents, mis-diagnosed appendicitis, etc.

    I will respectfully disagree on one point though. When it comes to loved ones - money CAN be everything in a way. If you are making money and making it work for you (as opposed to being a slave to it) you can buy the ultimate thing in life: Free time with people you enjoy - family, friends, whatever.

    Most people make the classic money mistake - they start to make good money and think "Hey, if I work even MORE I can make more money!" - and this is true, for a while - but there is a definite upper limit. The most successful people I know went more with the line of "Hey, I made some money - now I can pay some flunky to do this repetitive crap while I go play golf with my brother AND STILL MAKE MONEY WHILE I DO IT!"

    Any person who's able to make a good amount of money (online or in meat space, as long as it isnt winning the lottery) has a certain type of character -- motivated, perseveres during hardship, driven,ambitious whatever you want to call it. You think after this type of person makes alot of money, they want to stop doing the thing they're good at (ie making that money) and just play golf with their brother? Most will realize that 'freedom' is actually a void that needs filling. You will always want the stimulation of success and failure.

    Money is worthless. HOWEVER everyone believes in the dollar so it's a tool to get you what you want "more time" to do what you want when you want.

    OP, I am sorry for your losses. That is horrible. Be strong and try to use the rest of your family for support.
