well yeah, no... i disagree if it is a busy day and my kids, my Grandma and my Husband etc. do need their needs met by me, and 15 conversations are going of on my phone, than yes i am actually to busy to respond. If it is important please call, if not there can be a gap until an answer... That is not meant to hurt you, just you have to distribute my resources.

"Money can't buy happiness" is a lie we get told over and over again by the people who own most of all the money and resources.

What? What rich person says money sucks? It's poor people who want to lie to themselves and place blame anywhere but in the mirror. Having money kicks ass! Once you get rid of money arguments at home, can easily pay the bills/take vacation/buy shit, it's like a giant weight is lifted off your shoulders.

I realized this since I was seven but ppl kept trying to tell me I was wrong. why can't they just admit with money you CAN actually buy financial security and better health care for you and your loved ones, that will ultimately leads to calmer and happier life?

Well, maybe not true emotional happiness, but having been on both ends...plenty if money and poor as hell...I can say that having a sufficient amount definitely makes life easier. I'm not talking about an excess, mind you - but having enough to cover your NEEDS (as opposed to just wants) definitely reduces stress and gives enough peace of mind so that you are able to enjoy things. So, in that sense, yes, it does.

Only if you can be happy with basics. Because if someone counts on money only, money won't change anything. Look at celebrities. All on drugs, all unhappy. Only those who care about families, find balance in life and engage in charity are quite normal.

Money can buy health care in countries that give no $hits about its citizens' health, and it's a lot easier to be happy when you're not writhing in pain, so yeah, money *can* buy happiness.

Money can buy physical and evident well being but not happiness. Happiness is a subtle emotion and has no monetary value. You can also have some peace of mind in apparence. It looks like happiness but it is not in the end. There are many other studies that explain this.

Bri Nicole

I, personally, disagree with this. Money can buy basic needs. It can't create happiness which you have to find in yourself and with support of friends and family. I've never been poorer in my life but I'm the happiest I've ever been.

David Berry

Happiness in my opinion is fleeting. Money too is fleeting. No matter how much one has, there is anxiety over how to replace what is spent. Contentment is a more reasonable goal.

Look this is as false as the opposite saying, money only buys happiness if you know what to invest in, it can be very temporary and you'll just waste a lot of money or it might make you unhappy because of all the bad investments and people coming after you, i'm sure there is a third category who does just fine making smart investments and keeping themselves happy buying the stuff they truly need. Don't let a picture think for you, what i'm saying here isn't profound at all.

I'm happier flying first class than economy. I'm happier living in a nicer part of down. I'm happier if I can afford to send my kid to the best private school. I'm happier eating in a Michelin star restaurant than McDonald's. I'm happier if I can choose my work instead of needing to take whatever is available.

Forgive someone for your own sake, not for theirs. The only one really hurt when you hold a grudge is you. You're either missing out on a good relationship because of ego, or you're wasting your time thinking of someone who doesn't give a shit about you.
