Money buys games, games bring happiness(or frustration depending on the game), so yes money brings happiness!

Money can bring happiness but it can't bring you joy.

it brings happiness, but having great friends brings joy And Id rather have the joy.

So OP you'd be cool if someone came and shot everyone in your family for no reason but gave you 100 million?

 

I think it does temporarily, what fun is it to live in a big expensive house alone? Thing's like this usually come at a cost.   


 

If that were to happen, I'd get their families....

No. If anyone has ever been to India you will see some of the poorest people on the planet yet it is a much happier place then North America. Everyone is cheerful, friendly, etc. That proves right there that no it doesn't bring happiness.

 

Now I'm not saying I wouldn't love to have money to buy my toys, take the trips I wants, and to go concerts, etc. Without money I would have never been able to backpack Europe for 4months, but I had to make sacrifices to save that money.

 

But what I see(and am guilty of myself time to time) is most people live in the future. What I mean by this is they say "Once I get a career, and make 70K+ a year everything will be fine and I will be happy."

 

It doesn't work like that, if you aren't happy now you won't be happy with money. Take everything you can out of life, don't get greedy. We all die and then your life is over, no need to get hung up with consumerism, no need to feel bad for yourself because you don't have money. Take in the beauty of life and live with no regrets and you won't have to worry if you have money or not.


I think it helps you get to happiness, but it's hard for me to argue against this post. Really makes me think.
