Self preservation exasperates our clarity through pain for us to be effective in preserving life.
Although you may not believe, there are people who are not worried about money.
They have it in sufficient quantity, the amount reaching seems they have an inexhaustible source, they are not worried about if you ever fall into homelessness, or occurs to them to think about the vagaries of the global economy simply do certain tasks, meet certain obligations and peaceful enough money arrives with regularity.
For those living running after financial commitments, for whom every month suffer a certain amount of anxiety because they fail to meet without juggling scarce resources they have... or with excessive costs, impossible to abate, for all these people, I repeat, is chimerical to imagine that there are other ways to live.
Beyond what each is capable of assuming, there are people who does not have financial worries, but you have other concerns because, apparently, the concerns are a natural ingredient for the life phenomenon only stop as late as possible (1).
The concerns of those who have no economic problems are how to entertain, how to make sense of existence, how to fill the time.
Our mind is specialized in rapidly identify gaps but it is very awkward to detect everything. It is designed to capture the pain but has difficulty recording the relief.
Nature is wise: as the only thing that can jeopardize the existence usually warn their proximity provoking pain, self-preservation increases our awareness, alertness, alertness, with painful feelings, to act defensively and meet the main goal: to live.
