The FIRE debate

  1. I agree that it’s a (personal) journey and not a competition.
    The urge to compare yourself to others is hard to beat sometimes – be it those who are better off or those who have an easier life.

    I personally don’t think that the RE bit is that important and it’s more important to be FI but not live a life of squalor to get there.
    I’ve had that in mind for almost two decades now but I’ve loved my work and life in those years.

      You’re lucky then. I mostly hated work and had some terrible bosses. Also worked in environments where good deeds were not rewarded. Couldn’t wait to stop. Avoiding the commute and the dressing up in the morning is beyond all value.

      Unfortunately, my other half has the opposite view, so my retirement is not quite what I had in mind.
