  • Rich and unhappy. Knowing my bills are paid, my children have food and clothing is worth more than my own happiness. Being poor is stressful.

  • Poor and HAPPY, HAPPY being the key word. Some things would need to be certain for me to be happy. Kids cared for, bills paid and food on the table. You can be poor and have all that.

  • We are not rich, and near poor. We are very happy with our lives. Bills paid, food on the table, roof over our heads. All the important things taken care of. We are rich in other ways.

  • Rich and unhappy so . I'm allergic to being broke sorry lol. Money is a tool. The more tools I have to get what I want in life the happier I am. Most people are happiest when they don't have to stress out day to day. Lack of money is stressful and I'd take my chances with being Rich over being poor.
