Now I understand this may be a little controversial, but I want to explain WHY. Why I believe money is better spent focused on curing ourselves of depression, anxiety, self-hate, low-self esteem, apprehension, and everything else that stops us from living our best lives.
A cure gives us hope. Not to say there's no hope when it comes to Alopecia, but I believe it's false hope. It's like the light at the end of the tunnel: it's always there, but when will you reach the end? We don't know if there's a cure for Alopecia coming this lifetime, or the next. Yes- it's important we spend money on researching autoimmune diseases. Yes- we should definitely support the opportunities to find a cure.
But how does any of that help us right now? How does spending $50 of our hard-earned money help me right now? It doesn't. Granted, it's an investment into your future and blah blah blah, things that I can't argue. You're not wrong for wanting to donate cash to find answers for alopecia. I can't fault anyone for wanting something better for civilization it's something everyone should absolutely 100% do.
My argument lies here: how can we help ourselves right now? How can we better our lives right now? How does the possibility of a cure for Alopecia and the promise of growing our hair back help me right now?
We spend so much time, money and effort on trying to fix the future just right so that when we get there, we might be comfortable. But no one is focusing on how we're feeling right now- and we're ignoring signs that maybe, we should spend a little time on ourselves. People forget to take care of their bodies and minds, and to treat them with a little respect!
So here's a little snippet of my thoughts:
