Does money really bring happiness? The person who came up with the old saying, "Money doesn't buy happiness, " must have been poor. I don't think I've ever heard a rich person complaining about having money. Can you see Donald Trump out at a cocktail party saying to other rich folk, like Paris Hilton "Yup, my wife and I are going to the Cayman Islands for a month, having money sucks."
So in other words, a person who had no money was trying to make himself and other non monied people feel better about being poor, by saying, "Money doesn't buy happiness."
If money doesn't buy happiness, then why are so many people trying to get more money? Why do women whore themselves, sleeping with men they don't know to attain this money thing? Why do men chase after after those older women called cougars? Last I heard, Madonna, and Jennifer Lopez were dating younger, more virile men, nearly half their age. Weren't these guys their backup dancers?
Money can't buy you good genes, having you look great into middle age. Money can't buy you good genes ensuring you grow into a healthy 90 year old. And money can't buy you ever lasting life. But money can make you feel better about yourself and your life---thus making you feel happier. Money can buy Botox treatments, face lifts, plastic surgery to make you look younger, thus happier.
Money can buy vacations to warm tropical islands where someone massages your back, teaches you to dance, and serves you delicious foods.
Personally, this would make me feel a whole lot better about life!
When you think about driving a new expensive car loaded with all those extras like heat, air conditioning, Sirius Radio, reclining heated seats, and a remote car starter are just examples of how having money can make your life better, if not happier.
If money doesn't buy happiness, then why are so many people miserable since we've been in an economic recession for the past four years? Why are so many people working two and three jobs, if they are well off?
Whoever created the saying, "Money doesn't buy happiness." must have been poor, and never experienced what having money can do to make you happier. COPYRIGHT(c) 2013!!
