Can money buy Happiness?

Question of the day.

I believe money can not buy happiness. Material things can bring us pleasure for a sort time but in the end we still long for something more. What is that something more? How do we avoid falling into the trap of trying to keep up with the illusion that advertisers create? Connecting with real people in person. True friends and family to share life with, to communicate our feelings, fears, goals, etc. We are a social society and many of us want to below to a group and fit in. TV commercials brainwash us to feel inadequate. The commercials teach us to always be wanting, craving, needing more to feel "good". But after buying the products we never truly feel "good", we are not truly complete, rather we feel empty and unsatisfied. What good is all the money in the world if you have no one to share it with? That is the reason that I think money can not buy happiness, sure it can make a lot of things easier, but some of the best parts in life are when we reach deep down inside and struggle to overcome the odds.

What do you think?

Can money buy happiness?

  2. Happiness is created by your perspective

  3. Money is not just about material things. Money means a chance to get a better education. Money means medication for the sick. Money means being able to pay for health insurance (if you can get approved). Money means owning a home and having a fixed mortgage instead of getting stuck with ever increasing rents. Money is a nursing home when you can no longer take care of yourself. Money is having a car so you can make it to work so you can make more money so you can survive.

    Money can mean the difference between life and death when you are ill. It is the difference between having a home and living on the street.

    People who equate money solely with more "possessions" are missing the reality. Money in today's society is what allows us to meet our most basic and essential human needs. It's not about perspective, or possessions; it's about the essentials and survival.

    Try being very ill and sleeping on a sidewalk in the rain in winter night after night, and see how happy you are about it. Most people require money to meet their basic needs and when those needs aren't met, happiness can be very hard to come by. Those who say they don't need money to be happy are those who have money.
