Money brings happiness, an age-long argument

A lot of people have argued that money brings happiness while many have a contrary view.

Hi there, this is Sir Chike. I hope you are okay wherever you are reading this article.

Today we shall understand if what they say about money bringing happiness is true or a pure lie.

I know that by now you already have issues bothering about believing this or not.

Don’t worry, by the time you are done reading this post, you will be able to agree or disagree that money brings happiness.

Does Money bring happiness?

The answer to the above question has two faces of a coin.

You can’t completely say yes and you can’t also completely say no.

In that case, we are going to break it down, bearing in mind the two faces and also explaining them one at a time.

Why money brings happiness

Money brings happiness, an age-long argument

Making money is the desire of every person both male or female, old and young.

In today’s society, we all know how important money is.

It is obvious that without money you cannot eat and of course, you know what it means to go hungry.

By the time you are so hungry, you will be tempted to do anything just to get satisfied.

Just like they say, a hungry man is an angry man.

You can’t get your food without having money.

So to avoid hunger-related anger, you must get your stomach to stay free from hunger and that can only be possible when you have eaten.

Furthermore, you’ll need money to solve the problem of material wants.

Have you also noticed that whenever you remind yourself that you have money in your account, there is this kind of smile that trails around your cheek?

Imagine the opposite. Imagine that you don’t have money at the time you needed it most.

Money brings happiness because its role in the life of people is immeasurable.

Just like Oliver De Coque sang in one of his songs that the only thing that would make a child look like an adult is money.

And also, the only thing that can make an adult look like a child is money.

How to make money as a child

With a deep understanding of those words, Oliver will tell you how important money is.

Also, in terms of education. These days, education is not free.

If not for government intervention, education would have been the most expensive aspect of human lives.

In some societies where government don’t consider their educational system, you’ll notice that only those who would have access to school are the well-to-do people.

When you are educated, you are a happy man and of course, it means that money brings happiness.

A close look at people who are always happy will testify to the size of their pockets.

Many reasons why money brings about happiness are indeed immeasurable.

Making money sorrow or happiness

How money brings about sorrow

Earlier in this article, we told that the saying that “money brings about happiness” has two faces of a coin.

I also reminded us that money brings about happiness and also it does bring about sorrow.

Now let’s break down how money brings about sorrow instead of the opposite.

No rich man or woman today is secure in some societies.

In some advanced countries, they have nothing to worry about in underdeveloped countries, the rich are always the target of criminals.

A poor man can walk freely on the road but a very rich man would always want to move around with security.

This is because they are not ready to be kidnapped and start passing through the agony that many had suffered.

Another problem with money is the very fact that because of it many have engaged in one illegal activity or the other.

89.7% of the bad things happening in our world today are a result of the nonavailability of money.

The scarcity of money is a big problem for all societies because almost everyone wants to make money.

Because of money, the rich have learnt to oppress the poor.

Who serves a rich man as a house help or caretaker? The answer is the one without the money.

Tell me, how does the money owed by the rich influence positively the lives of those who have none?

The rich are happy and the poor are in sorrow. This is because of money.

In a society where democracy is said to be practised is only practised on paper.

Democracy sought to bring people together and also place them at the same level. Unfortunately, those who have money enjoy the full benefits of democracy while those without money enjoy just 2% of democracy.

Wrapping things up

Money has two faces, the first is its undisputed importance. Also, on the other hand, money has many pitfalls.

From what is found in this article you can testify that money has more advantages.

No matter how you feel like painting it black, everyone needs money to survive.

The bottom line of the whole thing is that money brings happiness and no one should discourage you from believing that.

Also, the sorrow that comes with money cannot be benched.
