hello friends i feel that who have enough money he is so happy,because I belong to a middle class family and I can not buy the things which i like at market and I felt very sad when I like the things but cant buy so I feel that the person having lot of money he can buy anything immediately and stays happy so i also want to become a rich person and want to earn lot of money so that i can buy everything in this world

It is true that having money gives you happiness,not eternal happiness, but temporary. Not all rich people are happy. I guess, they are happy because they can have the things, materially, that they want. A lot of us, at one point in our lives will long for something that is not material. It is the connectedness with other people. Making other people happy is what gives you eternal happiness.

Being rich is good. Money buys a lot of things but it does not necessarily make you all that happy. A lot of very rich people out there are not really happy with their lives. However, the good thing is that since these people are rich and they can be sad and rich as the same time as oppose to being poor and sad! LOL

yes they maybe the most happiest person financially but come to think of it, do they emotionally happy too? many rich people are emotionally unhappy yes they have plenty of money but they are not emotionally and spiritually happy maybe because they have everything but they loose their family or maybe their children are hard headed because they believed that everything bad happened will pay out of money....they will loose evrything because their too busy attaining their business they forgot to attain the most important thing in their life which is the family bonding.....so be contented of what you have, everyone of us has our own problems..... happy posting

I think that people who have enough money may not quite happy. I don't have much money, but I enjoy myself.I think the process of earning money is enjoying life.Using my money buy things I need is a pleasent thing.I feel that is enough.Money can buy many thing,but it can't buy everything.As the saying goes,"Content is better than riches."

Obviously the money is most important factor in this world. But money is not everything. We need money to live well, eat well. But more money spoils the life. It often changes most of our mentality into a different path. We should always look down and thank God for what he has already given to us. If we think for the people who are more poor than us, who can not eat two times a day, the baby who can not get milk while he is hungry, people who are suffering from unrecoverable disease, then we can imagine how well we are being. Do not expect too much. Because for our expectation sky is the limit. Always look down and think high. It is my suggestion.

Oh! I have missed to mention the most vital thing. Money can give you everything except the peace in mind. It can not be bought by money.

I also come from a middle class in my area, and I feel I am so lucky that I am from a middle class. I don't rich people can choose what they like in their lives, especially marriage and love, sometimes rich people can only marry to members in rich families, their marriage is only a bridge to link these two rich families and benefits both families' business. I can buy what I want, of course I can't buy the sun or the moon, even I can't buy a thing which is very expensive, but I think I can still live happily without that thing.

I don't think so. So many rich men killed themselves, if your happiness is bought by money, that's quite pity, that only means when you have lessen money, your happiness will leave you immediately.

I don't think that money can bring you all sought of happiness in your life and it is not the only thing which makes you happy!! Our family comes first.. Because we earn for them.... Coming to the subject of rich people !! I think they are sleepless when they are rich because they always worry for their money if they get stolen or many stuff like that.. So money is important but not too much when it comes to the life.....

I hate to tell you this , but money isn't everything . The best things in life are free , and never put money before people . Friends and family come first .

i don't really agree with you completely that money can bring people happiness... take for examples the life of the actors and actresses... they are loaded with money... they can buy everything that they want... but are they happy??? i don't think so... many of them are divorced... many of them undergo depression and stress... some of them even killed themselves... these things won't be happening if they are happy... to me, money is only the tool for us to survive... we shouldn't worship it and treat it as number one in our lives... as the Bible says, the root of all evils is the love for money... for me, true happiness can only be found in God, my Creator and Saviour... take care and have a nice day...

i would say that being rich is good but you can get only temporary happiness. Like say i feel like owning diamonds or going on a world tour, if i had the money i wuld satisfy my desire immediately. But what happens after that is a mystery. One would go bored if there is no challenge in getting a thing. ANd then these happiness are temporary and there are true happiness that can never ever be bought by money :)

Agree with you so much. In your example, what if there's another bigger diamond in the market, one will never stop to hope they want more, that's would only make them even more upset not having more.

Hi friend, Have money with us is always good.Money is only one part to buy things.You can't buy everything out of money.Keep this mind.In order to satisfy our things we want money,it is true but with money only we can live happy,i think it is wrong.In order to buy things for ourselves we need but money won't give you all.Beside money we should maintain good relationships with others and do good things.In this way you would become rich.Buy the necessary things you want and lead a happily life with your family members and do good things whenever possible. Have a nice day

If you are a middle class person, and you find it hard to afford things that you like, you have to bear in mind that the poor may not even afford the basic necessities in life.

I think so. I am not rich so I dont know. Hehe. But I also feel the same way. I like to buy things I see from the department store especially the branded ones but just can't but even though that's the case, its not a big deal though. I am happy with my life right now and doing everything I can to reach my goal and dreams in that way I'll be able to buy myself things I always wanted to buy but just cant.

sonusd no no no. rich people are not always happy, they are usually so greedy and want more, and run over people to get it.no.you are much happier having a simple life and buying only what you can afford.money is not everything. It cannot hug you or give you a kiss or talk to you or make you happy just being with you.its inanimate, and only purpose is to buy stuff. so what. Happiness is only something that you give yourself,nobody can make you happy but you, you c an be content and not be wealthy. money is just money.

Good day. As for me, money is not enough to feel the happiness and joy inside ones heart. I think we can only see the other side of the fence, wherein we are just looking on the rich people go shopping, go buying what they want, go spending every now and then. But do we really know what they feel. Maybe they are just doing this because they tend to protect themselves not to feel that something is missing. This is the true happiness, the true meaning of joy. Though money is one of the things that we need to be happy but it does not mean that we can buy the laughter that give joy in our heart.
