While searching for a new home, I noticed how many people try to sell “the dream”.
I didn’t expect to be so cautious about buying a house, but it seems it is. I put lot of attention and value what people say to me.
One of the things that made me thinking was the “oh, you can use your work savings for this”.
While I might agree that it’s possible, the work savings are there for a reason. They are your backup plan when something goes wrong with the work and to me it’s foolish to even think of using them for something different.
The dream shouldn’t lock you in a position where you can’t do anything else.
To me the dream is a healthy living. Less stress, less fears, more life.
