It's a case in India as well. Most of us bought flat on loans, Car loans, CC loans.

But is that specific to being a developer? Probably society is pushing people in general towards these unhealthy habits - the endless rat race of "more more more" ... doesn't have that much to do with being a developer.

Agreed, It's mostly applicable to all human, we almost forget how to live a good life with fewer resources & always fighting for more & more in this rat race.

Exactly! Enjoying the moment and sometimes being contented with what you have is so important. Don't listen too much to people who are telling you what to do, or that you "should" have this or "should" do that. Sure they can advise, and then you thank them politely, next you make your own decision.
