“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber
Do you agree with this statement on excess?
The belief that too much of everything is as bad as too little, will depend on who is making that assessment and what the precise excess is?
Maintaining any excess that can sustain life, such as food, water, shelter with the ability to help those in need, however not provide assistance to those in need can be considered horribly bad if the person has the necessary resources and ability to help.
However, those in need will always look upon those with excesses they desire should remember the old adage. “Never wish for what some else has, because you never know what they did to acquire their excess”.
Looking upon others with excesses or resources you desire with a jealous eye, is never a great way to decide how to get what you think is needed. Whether, if it is a person or business.
No matter what the excess someone possesses, if you do not know the sacrifices taken to obtain the excess, no one should judge or complain.
Those of us with desires to obtain certain excesses should look within to decide, would you have walked in the shoes of the person who has anything you believe is an excess.
Answering this question can help decided what is excess?
