  • I know a several "poor" people that are happy.. including me, I also know a few "well off" people who aren't happy. Money does not make you happy just comfortable

  • I know people who are well off and they are stressed! The more you have the more you want and before you know it you've snowballed yourself into a higher income bracket with a huge mortgage or two and two or three car, boat, motorcycle payments, and you have kids to put through college, etc, etc, you cant afford the time to stop and smell the flowers or anything that doesmt smell like money! I know poor people who are happier and grateful for what they have and know how to appreciate the important things in life.

  • I think it depends on what your definition of poor and wealthy are. I know people who are wealthy and don't happy and I know people who are poor who are happy. I think people need to learn how to be happy no matter what they have and make the best of what you have instead of wanting something you can't have.

  • People that are "well off", are just like the rest of us. I've always heard that money doesn't buy happiness, but people with money actually can just as unhappy as the rest of us. I have a friend who does have money, but he never married or had kids, so I do think it is true.
