Social_Media's
I have been talking about this particular topic too often, I still don’t understand what I am so much involved with this one thing happiness comparing each and every time with material things !!

Maybe I did not get mental untouchable things in life like love, feel it, caring, bonding and I have gone shameless talking about this again and again!! Since people in this digital world they forget what they actually have and for what they are running for in they respected life more !! JUST STOP AND THINK ONE MINUTE !!
Are you a materialistic person? Do you desperately need money, luxury items, car, property, whatever else !!

A materialistic person is someone who tends to fall in love with their material possessions and equates them to happiness and fulfillment. This is especially so when the owning of the possessions is motivated by emotional reasons rather than functional reasons.

If you belong to this category, maybe you need to reconsider; do you really need all of these materials to become happy? Maybe, when you’re so busy buying new things, you miss the chance to achieve real happiness!

1) Materials are just fake symbols of happiness.

If you are deeply lost into our desires toward material possessions, you will find we have come to hold many fake beliefs about these possessions. We see these objects as tools that will help us improve our quality and experience of life. Material possessions have evolved into our holy grail and represent symbols of hope, happiness, and joy. However, these symbols are no more than just artificial creations by people.

2) Materials don’t last forever.

The fancy new whatever you just bought isn’t going to last you your entire lifetime. They have to crap out on you sooner than later.

3) Materials distract you from what really matters.

The pursuit of stuff is a distraction from the important thing: the pursuit of your goals. It can be hard to stay interested in your goals when success requires patience (the opposite of the instant gratification materialism provides).

How to change

Getting rid of materialism doesn’t mean forsaking all your possessions. Ridding yourself of everything you own would only prove you are still too preoccupied with possessions themselves. Someone who has developed a healthy inner world would see possessions as neutral. This shift is more about attitude than specific actions.

You need to understand that the things you own don’t define who you really are. 
The problem is that you view things as possessions in the first place. Ownership is just a societal construct to keep order, it doesn’t have any deeper meaning. Separate your identity from the things you own.
But don’t you think achieving a goal meaningful to you will make you happier than a bunch of stuff that leaves you feeling empty before you know it?
Example your investment is on Travelling, Would you really think you can measure it with any other material things!!
And you can proudly tell people “I didn’t earn more Material things, But I acquired mental pleasure which is untouchable feeling and is felt only via daring to achieve it!!
