Money to me is sometimes very important, but at times, not very important.
If you`re on welfare, you wish you had money so you no longer need welfare and you would have enough to get by. In this case, yes, money is very important.
However, what if you just left a job which was emotionally dissatisfying and you got nothing out of it in terms of building your career? Sure, you made money, but is this money very important? To me, it isn`t.
