I will change my house in September . We are buying a bigger and more beautiful house in a more prestigious neighborhood. It’s normal, we’ve become richer. This means more expenses and as a result drives away my dream of financial independence. This is a classic dilemma that those who want to face the path of financial independence must face. If the expenses increase, financial independence goes away. However, can we live a life with only financial independence as a goal? Financial independence is a tool to achieve a better quality of life. Surely in a bigger house in a more prestigious neighborhood the quality of life will improve even if the dream of financial indifference will have to wait a few more years.
