“Says the guy who has all the money he needs, right?”
“Give it all away then!”
Yeah, we could respond that way. We could choose to alienate Jim Carrey by choosing not to try to understand him and judge instead. But where will that get us? Perhaps there is another option:
“Maybe I should listen to what he has to say. After all, he does know what it is like to have all that money. Maybe money isn’t the ultimate goal after all?”
All of these reactions represent different stories. Its up to each of us to choose which story to empower for us. Which one makes you feel better?
