Obviously, money is a very necessary thing and I can say that really the money could change our life totally. In my opinion, if I have a lots of money I can do anything in my life with it like House, Car, Bank Balance or any other important needs of my life.

Yes, money can change our lifestyle but we should all remember that it depends on the individual. For someone like your friend, it is sad they she has grown to someone like that after becoming wealthier than she normally did. There could be reasons though and I am sure you would be proud of your status if you had grown better than a person who could hardly spend on your wants in the past. Let her be because that is that she chose. If the both of you are close people, you could have a heart to heart talk with her about your concerns. Like I said at the beginning. It all depends on her and if she continues to be the way she is, that is her choice in life. You could also say that "you tried to tell her".

I think that it really depends on the person. With that said, I know that if our family had more money then there would be more things that we would do. For example, we would be able to travel a lot more and my husband wouldn't have to be a slave to his job. However, I think that our core values would be the same whether we were living on the streets and begging for money or if we were wealthy and could purchase whatever luxury that we desired.

I personally believe that money can change our life style, it can bring all types of worldly comforts but it may not be able to bring peace and happiness in life.

I think money (enough money) will change many people their life style. It's hard if you have to think twice or even triple before you can spend something. Counting time after time makes you tired and for many nothing will ever change. It's also hard if you don't have the money to spend your life with the one you love, if you can't send your kids to school, if you are not able to buy them some clothes or to pay the doctor's bill or dentist.

I think every people needs money coz thats the very important living to use it, but what if you have a lot of money but you used it in the wrong way? for example hang out with casino and going disco at night its not the right way to spend your money, you are just wasting your money...

I am also guilty of taking taxis if i have the money rather than going by the public bus. I can't really answer if I don't know which part of her personality changed because of money. So in what way did she change? If she became degrading and all superior because of money, then tell her in a subtle way her attitude is not appreciated.

Yes, I do believe on that, but it depends on the person as well. Just because the amount in our wallet had increased it does not mean that we should also increased our expenses. Some people are really so blinded with the effect of money into our lives.

Having money, or the lack there of, is what creates the lifestyle we lead. Since it's impossible to do anything anymore without spending large amounts of money, then if you suddenly loose it then your lifestyle will change with it. It's a proven fact, Money is the root of a lot of our social and ecconomic problems. Money, or the lack there of, is often the reason behind a lot of disputes. Everyone even if they have it by the truck loads, always feels they can't have enough. You always want more, and if you've had more and are suddenly getting less. Then friendships and lives can change in an instant. It's a sad reality, but a reality just the same. One we must live with and face.

Yes, I agree with you. Money can change one's lifestyle. Actually this is true to my college friends. During our college days, they really don't spend too much money every time they go on gimmicks. They ate at a restaurant they offer unlimited rice. But now, they've change. They always eat at the mall. They spend too much money now. Now I know how powerful money is.

good day to you, i do really believed that money could change almost everything. not only the lifestyle but also the attitude and perception of an individual. let me share a short story to you in relation to this topic discussion. as i have my friend who used to be my college friend. we are so closed to each other then. but there was a time in her life that she badly needed an amount of money since she could not pay her loan, so what i did, i helped her to be employ abroad. time has elapsed and she was able to settle all her monetary obligation. aside from that, she was able to maintain a savings for her family. but, apparently, as time goes by, i cannot talk to her anymore. as her attitude have changed and there are times, she ignores me whenever i am trying to communicate with her. and i really do not know why. i am just thinking, she might found a new set of friends to be with her since she is living a new lifestyle now a days. indeed, money can either make or break you.

For me no,money can't change my life style from physical to spiritual. God can do perfectly change me,money is only paper,that can use to buy food,clothing,and others materialistic.
