Everyone possesses different perspectives of happiness from their own contexts and experience.
A massive example of… is the story of world renowned boxer Mike Tyson. Once sitting on a fortune of 400 million dollars, only to see the whole sum of the money disappear after squandering it all on lavish purchases such as many million dollar mansions and cars, and was later forced to file for bankruptcy. Mike Tyson is an example of someone who has so much that they don’t know what to do with it, then they may become greedy. This would make their life all about money, therefore consuming them in their obsession to wanting more and more.
Money can only temporarily buy happiness, but true happiness comes from loved ones and learning to be content in life without always searching for that something more.
Although money still matters in the world and without any of it would be very difficult to survive, money itself only buys pleasures and materialistic things, rather than happiness.
Nonetheless, the poorer a person is, the more precarious his life and
happiness. Lower depths of poverty mean greater vulnerability, greater likelihood of being pulled away from preferred pursuits to tame threats to minimal well-being. A poor person might have to take a second job to pay for a needed medical procedure, for example. The less wealth one has to draw on, the larger an ongoing concern fulfilling life’s basic requirements (such as paying the rent) must be—which leaves less time and tranquility for more agreeable activities. A modicum of money is necessary as human beings have physical needs.
can buy you happiness if your basic needs are not met, but once that threshold is crossed, and mind moves into the territory of creating artificial needs, then acquiring money can become an end in itself and a vicious cycle is established where more and more money is needed to fulfill more and more artificial needs that never end or create lasting fulfilment.
Happiness is a feeling we find within our own selves as human beings. An object should not be able to define that happiness. Money can satisfy immediate materialistic wants but can never meet human needs for friendship, love, and companionship. Money can make life easier, but an easy life isn’t necessarily a happy life
