Nowadays we live in a materialistic society where people buy products with the name of a recognized brand only to show off to people that they don't even like.

This urge of buying new stuff and the fact that no one is ever satisfied is one of the biggest problems of our society nowadays. This has led to problems like obesity, depression and anxiety, just to mention some.

We should all learn to be satisfied with little things instead of living a constant pressure to buy and buy and buy. There is no need for that.

It is ridiculous to think that nowadays we live better in terms of conditions but everyone seems to feel unhappier, which can be seen in the depression rates, which have been assuming a growing tendency.
