It’s said that “the best things in life are free.” But nothing is actually free. Because to even experience, let alone enjoy the free things, you need food, clean water, shelter, medicine, etc. We have to sustain ourselves first, through work.
And once those needs are satisfied and you start to look at the “free” things, like love, you realize that that’s not free either. Love will cost you. Because for one thing, people aren’t always lovable. You’ll have to put up with some crap.
The best things in life aren’t actually free, but they are the best. You don’t need to own the latest clothes or gadgets or be a millionaire to be happy.
