Some people say that the most important thing in life is family, whereas others say that money and business are more important.

soch 001 002

In my opinion family is the most important thing in life. First of all, family can support a person in times of troubles. For example,  if one has some problems, family members are the first ones who will come to help. Secondlyhaving a family is a part of human natureFor instance, people need to be surrounded by those who really love them and family members are those who love each other without reservationMoreover, without a family a person feels lonely.

At the same time there are people who think that money is more important. They say that if you have money you can buy support and protection. Knowing that a person has more money, people will be more attracted to him or her and such a person will never feel lonely.

I cannot agree with the second opinion mentioned above for a particular reason. In my opinion relationships that are based on money are not jasting. One can run out of money and all their friends will abandon such a person. One can buy a lot of things but not friendship. In family a person can get real care and love no matter if they have money or not.

In conclusion I would like to say that having family and money are very important. Nevertheless, if a person has to choose one or the other, I believe he or she  should choose family with all its troubles and happiness that it might bring. Money and riches will come automatically if people really need them.
