This year I've learnt that money can't but happiness. Who else agrees?

Updates:
Well growing up as a rich kid I've always got everything I've wanted, yet always been outside of social circles, a 'loner'. Don't know if the money had anything to do with it. Of course the are people who don't have enough money to support themselves, and I do give charity. I should rephrase my question 'EXCESS money can't...' Thanks for all the opinions...

  • Anyone that thinks money can't buy happiness, clearly never thought to try and buy a puppy. lol

    Seriously though, it can buy a certain level of happiness. The problem is that once you are out of the poverty level, you don't get any happier from money. It does however buy happiness for people below the poverty level.

  • As humans we all have this void within us. As we go through life we try to fill that hole. People often use sex, drugs, food, and material goods (just to name a few). Money helps in obtaining all those things along with the basics like food, shelter, and safely. The only thing I have ever seen fill the void and support long term happiness is learning to love yourself as you are. With hard work and understanding we can be positive about ourselves a little more every day

  • I do not agree with people that say money can not bring any level of happiness. Having enough money to run heating in the winter and not having to worry about the power bill, being able to pay your bills with no worry and being able to eat without worry brings a level of happiness and this level of happiness is bought to you by money. On the other hand replacing your phone every year etc or buying materialistic things will only bring short term or fake happiness and will not fix your problems.

  • absolutely true. Money can buy sex, but not love. It can buy health care, but not health. I've known some very wealthy people who were also supremely unhappy.

  • Money provides freedom and comfort which can make you happy but beyond a certain point it stops adding happiness. Like I dont believe Bill Gates is the happiest man in the world.

  • Money can buy you the illusion of happiness. But true happiness comes from the life you decide to live not the wealth you attain

  • Scientifically you do get happier with a higher income... to a point. I dont remember what the income was bit it was decent but not wealthy. Basically if you got money to be free to pursue your hobbies and free time then that is as far as it will take you.

    After that it falls to things like social circles and mentality.

  • Money can't buy happiness but making money brings happiness.
    Does that make sense?

  • In my opinion things like having a lot of money and fame can make it difficult to find real relationships. If you depend on that money or fame to make friends you will find a lot of leeches and users.

    Maybe money can make a person happy in certain aspects of their life but I don't think it will make a person happy with everything in their life.

  • Well actually it can, if you use it right. Money alone doesn't make you happy, i agree, but it takes a load of stress off your shoulders and you can enjoy life much more, if you don't overdo it directly at the beginning.

  • Its true. Happiness has more to do with an increase compared to what we had before. A poor person who gains a lot of money will be happy. But someone who has always had the same amount of money will not be able to appreciate it the same
