In our current world, as we all regard, money is the tool for getting things we need and want. Everyone uses it and suppressing the money is both tangible and intangible. We work for months and years to have money to buy specific things. ‘A man wants to earn money In order to be happy, and his whole effort and the best of a life are devoted to the earning of that money”. (“The Myth of Sisyphus “. 1942) Lots of human beings are spending their money to buy some products and services because they believe having these stuffs will make them happy.
But what if they wrong? What if there is no real happiness come from money? As far as I am concerned, money is only tool not a purpose while achieving the happiness. Some say ‘ You can’t be happy without money because It unlocks everybody’. According to them life offers every kind of opportunity and happiness to the wealthy people. Unfortunately, money can only buy temporary happiness. For reaching more permanent joy and felicity, you need values that are more important than money. First of all, the most essential feature to underline is that there is an illusion and wrong perspective about rich people.
Some poor people assert that they would be much more happy If they have lots of money. They watched the celebrities and other wealthy people life on TV or reading from magazines and prejudiced about they are always happy as they look Like on TV. There are lots of famous people Like director Tony Scott, Kurt Cabin, Marilyn Monroe and recently Robin Williams committed suicide due to stress and smashed under the burden of being celebrity. All of these people had huge money when they were alive but suffered from stressful life. As a factual consequence of this,it leads these people to depression.
We shouldn’t forget that there could be some situations that your money don’t work such as: Health. Suppose that, you are rich and earning millions of dollars. In case of Illness, you could easily vault some high-tech medical center and might receive the best treatment,however, there are many diseases which aren’t able to cured by medical researchers yet. If you have these kind of incurable disease, it doesn’t matter whether you have money or not. You wish to be more healthy instead of being a rich so your money don’t buy your health and your happiness Indirectly.
In a recent survey inducted by Harvard researchers, it has been detected that money Is not the first priority for people. According to participants who also declared they are happy from their life, money took 3rd or 4th place in their priority ranking. Being healthy, living peaceful life and being with someone you love are ahead of money in that survey. As a factual consequence of this, we can easily say that you can be happy with ordinary income level. Another example is difference between people living in rural and urban areas. In contrast to people living in urban areas and metropolis who has more
Income, rural living people are more happy and far away from stress. When you each other because of the mutual benefit. In most cases, boy has more money than girl. He think indulging a girl and buying her precious gifts make them happy but money makes the people greedy. Girl starts to want more expensive things so it gives lots of damage their engagement and happiness. Relationships based on money and benefit instead of targeting happiness and respect usually causes irreversible consequences. You will never know what will happen. In case of bankruptcy and poorness, can you sure that you will be as happy as before?
To my own view, even if you have millions of dollars, there are still some values and things that you can’t afford. Considering the strongly related to the topic of money, we can not ignore that we can still be happy without having a huge money account, mansions or luxury cars. Some poor people dream about being a rich one day and they usually tough ‘ Without money you can’t realize your dreams’ but there are more urgent priorities like health,friendship and little happiness that you can’t buy with money. Money creates more like temporary, abstract happiness.
