This is something that I strongly agree with. You don’t need money to be happy. Money can buy us things, but real happiness is earned. Putting a price on happiness is like putting a price on life. I know that money is something that we rely on for living as long as it’s used for the right thing. Money buys us a temporary happiness but after a while your true feelings come back. Happiness depends upon ourselves, meaning what we do, what we accomplish, what we feel, how we look at situations, etc. Happiness comes from within. Just because someone is “rich” doesn’t mean that they’re happy.. You may have everything in the world that you want and feel miserable, because there’s that one thing inside that’s missing. Happiness. Just because someone is “poor” doesn’t mean that their life is miserable. They may not having everything they want in life but they make the best of what they have. If people were to constantly put a price on everything then what kind of life would we be living? Be thankful for what you already have in life. Be thankful for the people that you have around you; family, friends! Make the best of what you already have and be grateful that you have been given a chance to live this life. :)

… one of the worst things ever. Yes, I know it’s good for survival, and we rely on it to survive, to buy food and our needs and all that stuff, I’m not saying it’s bad for that. By saying it was one of the worst things I mean that people become too reliant on it. When people have lots of money all they want is more money and more money on top of that and so on and so forth. People always want more, People become greedy and selfish, because what they have is never enough. Money ruins people, lives and family. People lose control and it just becomes too much. There’s people that are rich and have money coming out of every corner and they are the ones that have everything and then there’s people who live out in the streets that have nothing at all, no money, no home or shelter, no food, no clothes.. nothing! I mean, come on.. We live in this world and it’s okay for that to happen? Stuff like this really bothers me. It’s disgusting to hear and it’s disgusting to watch. It’s like all that matters is money and how much you have of it… Let me tell you this, you can have all the money in the world and have everything that you’ve ever wanted in your life, but deep down inside you have that little bit of miserableness. Money can’t buy you happiness, it may for a little while, but it’s only a temporary happiness. I can keep going on and on about this, but I think I’ll stop now.
