Do you respect money? Spin off
10-05-2015 10:43 #2
I respect money when it's earned by hard work and or sacrifice. Then I'm careful with it and don't waste it. But if money is gained by doing nothing I tend to be frivolous with it.
Is that what you meant?

Actually something some else said in a thread.
I don't get it. Too money is just a object therefore not worthy of respect.
I treat like every other object in my life.
So I thought I would ask and hopefully understand what people mean by they respect their money.

My first thought is no, but...I guess it really depends what's meant by that.
I manage money well, not because of any kind of respect, but because I want to get as much value out of it as I can. I don't see money as something that needs to be saved or hoarded at all costs, and it's not particularly important to me compared to most things in my life, but I am careful with how I use it because of what we can do with it.

I think he was getting upset because when I was there in 2001, they weren't part of the EU and were still very poor? But yeah, like you I don't really get it. I respect it in that I know it means a lot and I can't live without it. But I don't think crumpling it means that I didn't respect it.

Hmm, treat physical money with respect? Nope.
I do understand the idea of treating objects with respect...and I treat most objects that way because, as a rule, I don't want to damage or destroy something that time/effort/resources have gone into creating. I probably treat money with less respect than any other object though. As long as I don't lose it, I'm happy.
