Would you rather???

Would you rather be happy and poor or rich and unhappy?!?!?!?

I would rather be rich and unhappy because you have more resources as in money to go to the doctor, workout, talk with a counselor and like that to try and help be happy.

Believe me, I don't think money buys happiness but I think money sure helps in life.

  • Good for you for being honest and I hope you don't get a lashing for it! How unhappy are we talking? So unhappy we cannot get out of bed or work or function? Or general unhappiness? I'm taking rich over poor and unhappy because money does make life easier and I can find resources to help me find happiness through meditative retreats in Arizona!

  • Happy and poor. I have a GF that I've grown up with and she has more money than she knows what to do with, married to a very successful man, four healthy, beautiful children...I wouldn't want to trade lives with her at all. She is not very happy, to say the least. Even if she were, I still would choose the same answer, though.

  • That's a hard one. If your poor like dirt poor your going to be unhappy. Those who say they wouldn't be are lying. If your rich but don't have your family your unhappy. Money can't buy that. I really don't know how to answer. My first thought is to say rich but I couldn't live without my family.

  • Personally I hate that question - being poor causes problems just like being rich causes them. I'd rather be rich and happy if I have a choice thank you.

  • I would rather be rich and unhappy. At least then i could buy the things i want for me and my family. I'm unhappy and poor now. So the only thing that would change is the money situation! lol
