All That Glitters: The Series (Ep 1)

There lived a man named man, he was lost in the valley of decision. To his amazement, he found a river flowing with gadgets of different kinds.

He wanted one, but which? he had no clue. So he reached out to a friend named Google, who gave him the descriptions of each gadget and asked him to choose.

A choice he did pick, but with time, it went old school and more new schools kept evolving. Man dug the ground to get gold, so as to keep up with the status quo.

Round and round he went digging up the relevant places but ended up with irrelevant basics. The more he got, the more he spent– he never had enough till he went to his grave.

The sad part of it all: he never truly lived because all he did was for the ‘gram.

Moral of the story:

If you don’t own an iPhone 11 or an iPhone 11 Pro, you won’t die. There are better inventions coming and you can’t keep chasing gadgets for the rest of your life just because you want to live for social media. If you’re purchasing it because it is needful, good and fine. But if for the gram, then that’s sad. Get a grip! There are better things to do with your resources.
