This morning I sit and talking with my neighbors, most of them talk that "rich people always happy". I tried explain to them that each people in the world has happiness, no matter he rich people or poor people, likewise each people in the world has sadness no matter he rich people or poor people. But they do not believe, they still have opinion that "rich people always happy". Hi mylotters, what do you think about this opinion?

I do not think rich people is always happy. No doubt money is the necessity in one's life [em]rolleyes[/.em]. It could make our life a lot easier and to meet many of our needs and luxury life style. However, it cannot buy happiness. Many rich people are also in a lot of debts as they may not buy things in cash. They are living a luxury life with big houses, big cars etc, and may have a lot financially commitments. They may also need to work harder to repay the financial loan.

Yes, you are right. Rich people not always happy. They also have some businesses and problems that make them stressful, such as threats, afraid that their wealth lose and other problems. Yes, most of rich people has a lot of debt commitment on banks.

i think that rich people have a better shot at being happier, but if you are not happy money won't necessarily cure it either.

Rich people has much opportunity to live easier, I think, but they difficult to get happiness if they still not satisfied.

We cannot assume that they are happy or they are sad because each of us has a different level of satisfaction and point of view when it comes to happiness,so its not a guarantee that once you have money you are happy. For me, happiness can be felt by anyone depending on your level of satisfaction..its too personal matter.. the effect of satisfaction and contenment is happiness...

Ye, a agree with you. Happiness and satisfaction come from the heart, more money cannot guarantee more happiness, it depends on the heart.

We have different wants and feelings.. so we cannot measure or estimate one's happiness.

I never think rich people are "always" happy. Actually, no person can be always happy. Persons with good health, having people to love and people to get love are living most times with more happiness. Among them there may be poor persons, persons with sufficient money and rich persons.

I think so, each person in the world will experience happy and sad, no matter she rich or poor. But, I think there are many people that think that rich people easier get happiness.

Yes, most of the people think so and make "More and more money" as the main aim of life. That aim itself brings unrest and unhappiness to them in most of time their life.

Everybody has problems no matter what their bank account status is. There will be something that comes along in everybody's life that will make them feel down. I remember watching certain shows that told the celebrities and a few of them were not happy and they had millions of dollars.

hey, i am not agree with that guy who says "rich people always happy" because as per my knowledge rich people have many problems than poor people. rich people not showing his problem. i think both are happy and both are sad. but main part is how you manage sadness part and how you express happiness.

Yes, you are right. More coin means more point. Yes, rich people have more business and problems in their life than poor people. Most of rich people difficult to sleep well because think about their money and their business. Yes, each people will feel sadness and happiness in their life, no matter they rich or poor.

Good morning, friend. You are right. Richness is not everything to make our life happy. There are many things that will bring we happy such as have good husband or wife, good child, good friend and etc. Have a nice day.

I don't think that rich people are always happy. There are a lot of rich people that aren't happy. And it's not necessarily because of their money but because of something in their life. Some people have a lot of family problems because they focus so much on gaining wealth and sacrifice other things.

Ask your friend if the reverse is true: "Poor people are always unhappy"? Of course we know it is not true. We have read so much news about how the rich die unhappy, and how poor loving people seem to be having more of life than the rich. So you are more right than you neighbour. The only thing is the rich can get more things than what they can enjoy. The poor has to learn to enjoy more with what little they have.

Yes, I agree with you, rich people have more opportunity to get things, but they do not guarantee that they will make rich people happy. Rich people and poor people have happy and unhappy.

i dont think so.money is not everything.you cannot buy happiness with money.you can have all the money in the world but it doesn't guarantee that you will be happy.Especially if you dont have friends and all you've got are enemies.yes maybe you can be happy with all your material things but it will pass.

Yes, you are right. Money is not everything, it cannot make us always happy, although we need it. Happiness will come from how we live and how we enjoy our life.

Your neighbors were totally wrong, they think rich is always happy because they have a lot of money, i can laugh at this, rich people lived a stressful life because they tend to work more and look for money, because their taxes is huge, their electric bills, water bills and any bills were huge also. Lets say they can be happy, yes they can be happy but a limited time only, because they have to work work and work, rich people must live in a rich people way, they must wear expensive cloths, buy expensive car and others, they have a lot of money right? then why most rich people are still working? Anyway the word happiness is broad, you can be happy because you lots of money, you can be happy because of self fulfillment etc. Every person has different prospective with the word "happiness"

Yes, you are right. My neighbors were totally wrong. Rich people still work and add their money and wealth and they have to work hard, because most of them afraid that they drop down be poor people. Yes, happiness has wide meaning.

I'm on your side.Not all of them attain happiness. I may say only fake happiness but true happiness within their self i guess they failed to have that.Others say that you can't have both, You may be rich but not totally happy but in my own perspective, you can be happy as long as you want. You can only be the one who can decide to be happy or not.

Yes, happiness depends on our heart, not depends on our wealth. Likewise, sadness also depends on our heart, not depends on how much we have money.

Rich people can't always happy,for money can't buy everything and can't resolve everything.More mind healther,more happier.Healthy mind creats the happy feeling,unhealthy mind creats the unhappy feeling.When we enhance our incoming,we will be happier a short time,but we can't happy just for this one year or too long time.It is same to the rich man,for the problem can be resolved by the money had been worked out already,the problem can't be resolved by the money still exist,maybe some new problem will creat.Money is important,but it can't ensure the happiness.

Yes, you are right. Rich people cannot buy everything with their money. Happiness, love, and satisfaction cannot bought with money. Because they are come from of our heart.

Of course not. rich people are among those who are much more stressful than other people. they have to keep and protect their richness. they also still have to maintain their richness. what a dreadful life!

I think so, maybe they more stressful and have some problem because they still do not satisfy with what they have, or they always worry with their wealth.

But, it is difficult to prove that rich people more happy than poor people, rich people can get live easier than poor people, but happiness is what we feel in the heart and I think it is secret.

On the first look yes. But it does not mean that poor people are less happy. I knew poor people are happy with simple things in life. Rich people are happy not with simple things but with extravagant things. They are really happy but they have no contentment.

Yes, rich people look happy, but actually they difficult to get satisfaction, because most of them do not thankful with their wealth. Otherwise, poor people often feel happy although they get little wealth.
