I hate when people say money doesn’t buy you happiness. it does. it buys you financial stability, a nice house, nice cars, nice vacations and trips, healthier food, a better education, etc. like wearing burberry while driving around in an audi would probably make me pretty happy too. but it’s just that rich people often take their comfortable lives for granted and end up being spoiled and ungrateful for what they have
What a crock of shit. Whoever originally posted this is a fucking entitled twat and so is everyone else who agreed with that person.
If you define happiness by “nice house,” “nice cars,” “nice vacations,” or wearing burberry while driving around in an audi,” you’re just shallow and materialistic. I spent the past year working customer service/content writing for this e-commerce business and I was more unhappy than when I was unemployed. All I did was trade the stress of financial uncertainty for the stresses of spending 40 hours a week keeping some rich asshole rich while dealing with asshole customers and getting yelled at by my bosses.
Sure, I was able to buy stuff, eat more often at nice restaurants, and build a decent computer, but that isn’t real happiness. And thanks to lack of time and energy, I was forced to give up things that actually made me happy like seeing my friends, reading, writing, speech and debate coaching, etc
Of course, having money can make your life easier, but that’s not the same thing as being happy. Doing the things you love and being around people you care about makes you happy.
