Happiness is a state of mind. It can be found in a hut just as readily as in a mansion. For those who dwell on those things that they do not have, happiness is hard to find. For those who always want more, happiness is hard to find.

 

Money can buy entertainment. Money can buy pleasurable company. Money can buy health care and clothes and cars but happiness is something that you must find within yourself.

    Money CAN buy freedom, and it's the freedom that makes one happy.  Freedom from work, freedom from debt, freedom from a horrible marriage, etc.

    You can achieve all those objectives by becoming a bum that sits in front of the gas station.

          It can be a fairly sweet gig. If you look desperate enough you dont even have to ask for money.

                Now this is a personal question for who ever answers it...Why can't money buy YOU happiness....Me personally....money can buy my happiness all day long...Im already happy with my life so money will only make me happier...What about you why can't money buy YOUR happiness???

                No, money couldn't buy me happiness or peace of mind, for that matter. Happiness has to be present already in your life. Happiness & peace of mind have no price tags.

                      Money can only add to your happiness. There are many rich people that are unhappy.

                        Most of the people on this thread and many similar threads before this love to use words like "Can't", "won't", or "don't", as If they speak for everyone out there.

                        Speak for yourselves. What you believe will happen If I get rich has nothing to do with the horror stories.

                        It's like saying, "Most people who smoke weed will eventually do harder drugs like Heroin". Absolute rubbish, I've smoked weed for 35 years and never touched Heroin or any other drug.

                        Speak for yourselves !

                        I totally see YOUR point! Money can buy you happiness, you just have to buy it in the right form! Cheers

                          Happiness like health and time is something that cannot be bought. Its not something you can take a title to and claim as yours. Like many other posters have said, its a state of mind or being.

                            You know what? I was thinking about that and I've come to realize something....Both my parents died when i was in my 20's it is still the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me and you know what....I don' t really fall deeply in love with anyone... like as soon as Im in the relationship Im prepared for the worst whether it ends good or bad....it's kinda hard to explain but here's another example....When I was in the military I heard this story...The general Westmorland had his officers write their obituaries when they thought the cong were just going to go all in and attack full steam...the point was when you realize how fleeting life is and it comes to an end whether your prepared or not...it's a little easier I guess to accept that everything comes to and end and all you can do is just realize that fact whenever your faced with death or heartache....So for me I never hold on to anything too tightly and be to afraid to let it go

                            There you go. Money can buy some happiness. What it can't do is eliminate all unhappiness.
