Why I’m Against FIRE

  1. Agreed! However, I would rather have the option for FIRE … having choice is important 🙂

  2. I think if I loved my job that I would feel differently about FIRE. If I was working my passion along with spending time with my family that would be ideal. But with me being lukewarm about my job FIRE definitely sounds enticing 🙂

    I am actually the opposite. I want to achieve FIRE as soon as I can. My definition of FIRE is freedom to choose what I do. I can start a second career, or volunteer or continue as a full time blogger. To achieve FIRE, I just have to be disciplined with my money. I don’t think that I am living a barebones budget. I am just spending my money on things that makes me happy.

  4. I agree with you, though it would be nice to have the option to retire early. That’s what I’m going for.

    Wealth is the ability to experience life fully!

    Are you really against FIRE then? I think you just have this definition of early retirement as not working, but most I’ve seen take it as working on what you want to work on as opposed to “having” to work. You’re already working on what you want to work on.

    • Hey mrslm I think the biggest thing I’m against in Fire is saving and sacrificing so much to be financial independent. Obviously it’s a great goal but one should still be doing great and fun things vs always sacrificing for fire.

    As others have stated I just want more freedom to choose how I spend my time without having to worry about the money. I think most people who have retired young aren’t just sitting around relaxing all day. Most of the ones I know are still very busy but they are only doing what the want to do and are passionate about.

    I do agree that you shouldn’t make yourself or family miserable just so you can quit your job young.

    • Hey Grant thx for swinging by. Always nice seeing new people. Yeah I’ve kinda switched my stance a bit on the early retirement. It would be nice to retire earlier and voluteer somewhere but yeah I think you should also enjoy your money now as well. Make a good balance essentially

    I’m 100% committed to reaching FIRE so that I can make the choice of whether I want to work or not, but I do agree that it shouldn’t be at the expense of your health or happiness.
