Well I have experienced all of those things. I’ve also seen the other side. I’ve interacted with people who look like every day people – yet they’re young, retired, and have very little stress. In fact, it’s started to surface a correlation of things-to-happiness for me. There’s no science behind it, but I have noticed that people with more stuff just tend to be more stressed out and worry more, while the opposite seems to be true for people who live on and with very little. This debate has turned on a switch in my mind and got me to thinking – what if I wrote about two fictitious families who lived on both ends of the extreme?
