Things vs. beings

Things.... toolstoyscarsclothestvsmoney..... Things
  How do I describe my relationship with things?
 
 I guess the reality is that I do not really care for things

Maybe I do not really understand how much other people care for things.

Maybe other people do not understand that I do not really care about things.

Some seem to think that caring about things = caring about people

Some seem to think that because I do not care about things that I do not care about anything.

Maybe I saw people caring more about things than beings and at some level decided that caring about things = not caring about beings

Any way if one has to choose between things and beings......

  1. Or how about this: It's OK to own nice things, but not OK to be owned by them.
