There is this thing called : Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of needs. Go read it or check out Google search and read. Then find out which level of needs are you at then you may discover something...........(I studied this at NUS in the early 1980's and may still be relevant today)
We all have different needs at different points of our lives so when your need is different from your friends/spouse then you may discover that : their mindset and yours are different.
Some people focus too much on cleaniness, some people focus too much on money, some people focus too much on caring for others and forgetting to care for themselves while some focus too much on themselves (their clothes, shoes and handbag must match if not cannot go out) :)) I used to be like this but I changed over the years and learn to love life more and the way it is.
FSQ Notes: when we buy a property if it is for our own stay then just focus on that and don't look back. For those whose destiny are more favourable with property then which ever property that you buy, somehow you will make money. Trust your bazi. However, if your bazi is not so favourable with property (earth element) then do it with a bit of care and a "kar len" advice usually that of a fengshui master ^_^
