I have been told that 250k salary smooths out the choppy sea, 120k makes the sea bearable, anything lower and sharks are constantly biting at your feet

It is a matter of mindset. Those aren't sharks. They are normal life happenings and shinenigans.
Sometimes (and not only related to money) the dark things are not merely normal life happenings, but are just that: sharks.

Lives, like ships, that show warning signs of sinking, can get back onto an even keel, or sail into a safe harbour, or get repairs on a dry dock, or be decommissioned. But that's mostly possible only once the leaks, or the overload, are acknowledged for what they truly are. To use a different illustration: excessive drinking can bring a life down and has a high potential to tear other lives apart. The alcoholic is unlikely to improve things less they first name the darkness honestly as a serious problem that needs facing.

Re: Is life ultimately a sinking ship?

There is a great project I have been thinking about. Volunteering on a Swiss farm, helping out in the mountains, OP.
