Money alone won't give us real happiness

For me having money is good, I mean great! Because you can treat your loved ones and have a fun time with your family and go to a nice vacation trip with them and eat good food and provide them their needs. You gotta have a purpose with your money, I am not saying that money is evil. It's just that we should not allow it to be the center of our lives. We should not be a slave to money, we should not let it lead us. We should be the leader of our money. We can also make it work for us through investments. Have a happy life! Happy mylotting!

Money can definitely get some comfort. it can't necessarily bring a lot of happiness but it can bring comfort and stability. I know we could probably use a little more right about now. Just for some necessities. But such is life. Unfortunately it doesn't grow on trees.

yup I totally agree with you that's why we should strive to have abundance of money so that we won't worry much and also we must control our spending even if we already have plenty of supply of cash. Most common mistakes the middle class do is blow their money on things they don't really need when their salary increases or when they get their bonuses. That's why they are still working until now, because if you do not know how to handle money, you'll be working for the rest of your life for someone else. For these kinds of people, more earnings will just result to more spending. So they blow their money and nothing is left to them until their next paycheck.

@BigMoney25 I totally agree. We all should be careful with how much we spend. Obviously it's okay to spend and splurge a little from time to time, but it's really good to save for a rainy day.

You are right otherwise there would be no famous rich people who have taken their lives.

yup totally! money isn't always there to solve our problems. Some problems or causes of depressions are just too complicated to be solved by money. Some people focus on the wrong things and lose themselves in the process, they should make money a part of their lives and use it as a tool but don't be a salve to the money.

yeeees! life is waaaaaaay better with money like 100x lol just kidding. we just all have to remember that the more money we make the more we should help the less fortunate because we will never know, we could be enjoying our food eating 3 times a day and wasting some of them while people on the streets are struggling just to have something to eat once a day or so I mean it breaks my heart to know some people are struggling like that. When I am hungry I think it is very hard to hold it I have to eat right away but people on the streets struggling to live just want to have a bread or a few pesos for food so it breaks my heart that's why I share a lot of my money most of the time.

It all boils down to how we use our money, we should be using them in good things and helping the less fortunate and also enjoy from time to time. The more money we make and the more we share our money, the more we attract good luck and prosperity which equals to more blessings for all of us. That's how it works!

I totally agree with you! Family and friends are also some of the reasons why I wanna make more money, so I can share it with them and bless them with the things that they need as well as share happiness and abundance with them.
