Some people may think money is everything. The will do anything to get money. Some people that have money will do anything to have happiness. People just don't appreciate what they have. People that don't have money jealous with rich people and rich people jealous to poor people because they are not happy. What will you choose if you were given chance by God to live in rich family but no happiness or happy family but not so rich? Why?

oh I am very emotional and I do love my family so much, well money is there, it can be easily find and you just work hard and you will have some, unlike happiness with family. I am blesses with kind mother and caring siblings, something that I would not trade off for money.

Nice to share your choice. Many people choose happiness rather than money. It is good to know people do care for family even the world is hard place to live without money.

Hi! It is already common knowledge that money cannot buy happiness, so I would rather be happy. Being content with what we have is very important. We have to always focus on what makes us fulfilled in life, like family and friends. Respect is also something that we want to have for ourself. Sometimes when we think too much about making money, we lose sight of what is important, and we lose other people's respect and even our self-respect.

It is true money cannot buy happiness. Money can only buy materials things. Materials things won't fulfill human needs like happiness. Thanks for the response. Have a nice day.

I choose happiness.I think one of humanity's ultimate goals is the pursuit of happiness. Money is just a important mean to get happiness and nothing else. And money is useless if we are not happy.

I do agree with you. For me happiness is the most important things. Without happiness there is no point having money.

money is not every thing but my frnd money is neede for every thing ....sowhat i can say .is having money or not is not the criteria for being happy.....it is an inherent one.u might notice .the people who came rich are because they are happy with them just ought to do something beyond their normal life........ we take Bill gates the founder of Ibm .....who was basically from a very poor family....but he works like any thing......with happiness.....so every thing will be in ur mindset .................. suppose if god make me to born in rich people...i will definitely sacrifice my life for the poor people...i will definitely spend my bugs for the poor people...and feel satisfy for extending help for others........ or suppose if i was born in poor family,,then i will njoy life with minimum needs for survival and without any health defects because i donot want to worry about further ...for having extra money i just feel satisfy with ....my ability to work to meet daily needs and njoy all the life..........

Thanks for sharing your view. Money and happiness. Some people will choose happiness some will choose money. No matter what the want, as long as live without regret would the most important. I will do my best to appreciate what I have and live every day without regret.

I'll still choose happy family even I don't have money. Money can't buy happiness. It can buy you a bed but it cannot buy you sleep. What's the use of having money if you're family is not happy?

Money can't buy sleep and can't buy much more like love, health. If there is happiness, people can work and find money to achieve what they want. But some people may say without money, a person cannot get what they want. They want money to solve their problems. They didn't realize actually they want to solve problem not money. Money can cause problem also like worry to much.

I would opt for happiness. Money would be great but is no good if you are unhappy. I have been trying to become a happier person and find that hanging out here helps me relieve alot of my stress.

Happiness is important in life. Without happiness, a person always will have negative feelings. Negative feeling is not only bring bad things to that person but also to the people around them. Negative feeling will bring bad judgment and will make that person do wrong things.
