Who else should know and be able to tell if money gives you happiness or not if not the rich?! They experienced how it is to have money and know what they talk about. Happiness is relative, for them being rich is something normal like being poor is normal for you guys. And everybody is unsatisfied.
You just have this romantic idea that being rich makes you happy but it's just an illusion. You don't fucking know. We always complain about the things we don't have. And always forget the things we have.
also: what about all the old ancient greek philosophers who were poor and had nothing? What about buddhist monks that live a simple life free from a materialistic life? Do you think they are unhappy?
but no of course it's not your fault that your not happy it's always the others.
>>26067524 What are you talking about? >implying food is expensive
if you wouldn't spend all your fucking money on unecessary shit then you would have enough money to buy food. If you're not living in a shithole like India or Africa you don't have to worry about starving.
Poor people like in China or India whatever are much more happier with their lives than any of you faggots on this board. People on this shit board always complain without having any reasons.
But stay unhappy pleb. It's your life. If you want to be rich then get rich. Nothing is stopping you, right? And if you're rich then tell me if you're happy,ok?
>>26065592 Money has it's limits. Women would rather fuck poor alphas than rich betas or omegas. Money is usually considered less important than many things that divide people(race, religion, gender, etc)
>>26067393 >You don't fucking know Its common sense
My minimum wage job causes me stress, boredom, depression and anger. All that would go away if I had enough money to not work. And with lots of money i could do the things i enjoy all the time, i would snowboard all the time and be much much happier And i wouldnt have to worry about the future
>live all my life feeling trapped >family is abusive to me >no friends >do terrible in school and after is over get years of depression >finally daddy buys me my own apartment >get weekly allowance too >finally alone >finally free >finally happy >start to get serious about drawing >start learning to code too >get back into modeling Thing is money can and will make you happy and that loneliness is a precious good
>>26065592 I believe the more accurate statement is that money ALONE will not buy you happiness. You can be rich and miserable, supposing you a failure in other aspects of your life, such as romance, family, health, etc
>>26065592 I wish people would believe this, I'm like the 10th guy ITT alone saying it.
>be from working-class family >have natural talents easily transferable to making money >start making money >realize the only positive difference it makes is the absence of worry regarding bills The luxury? It's just fucking stuff. There's nothing as empty as staring yourself in the mirror in that artificially-lit all marble bathroom of a 5* hotel room while you feel the coolness of stone against your bare feet, knowing you'll be the only one experiencing your whole trip and your foreseeable future.
This >>26065635 If anything, excess space and luxury combined with aloneness merely accentuates what you feel in your dorm room / basement... except you gave a shit-ton of effort and time in exchange for the former.
>>26069930 I've been of the opinion that wealth only accentuates your flaws. When you are poor you have a ton of excuses why life isn't the way you want it and you aren't happy. When you are rich and unhappy it's clearly just becasue you are a miserable hopeless person.
>>26067393 Being rich means you don't have to be poor, broke, homeless, sucking dicks for coke, or have poor access to health care or a lack of transportation because your car broke down and you can't afford to get it fixed.
Being rich means that you have a whole different set of stressful shit.
Try being poor for a while and see how much better your rich life is.
>am actually middle class with a decent income, who am I to talk, eh?
>>26065635 If you can't turn that money into social opportunity, you really do deserve loneliness. Throw an expensive party. Go to a bar wearing your most expensive watch. Be Jay Gatsby. People will come, and at least some of them won't just want your money. Other rich people don't need to be gold diggers.
>>26070354 >I used to think money just fixed everything, but it only fixes the way the world treats you. It doesn't fix the way you feel about yourself. So true. It's absurd, really, when you notice how different people treat you if you dress well and look slick vs when you look like you crawled out of the local Y.
>>26070465 Aww people treat you differently now that your rich? You poor fucking baby, life must be so hard for you :(
>Doesn't have to do manual labor 50 hours a week then spend the weekends doing nothing because he is still broke. >Gets to eat better than KD and Subway >Can afford to go to movies/snowboarding/traveling ect.
>>26070733 But if you work for that money, then the anxiety of being poor gets turned into the anxiety of not getting fired at work. The only true way to alleviate that anxiety would be to just have so much money that you really didn't have to work again unless you want to. Unless you're a chick in which case you don't have to do anything ever and guys will just give you money.
>>26070638 >Aww people treat you differently now that your rich? You poor fucking baby, life must be so hard for you :( You're missing the point. I was actually pointing out the ridiculousness of our society... all you need to do is LOOK rich and it's like you're of a different species to normies.
>Doesn't have to do manual labor 50 hours a week then spend the weekends doing nothing because he is still broke. Go fuck yourself. I work 50+ hrs a week in an engineering occupation. You can't really burn out your body, but burning out your brain can be done easily.
>Can afford to go to movies/snowboarding/traveling ect. Sure, but that's after spending a decade in school after the plebs started working. There has to be some perks to studying, no?
>>26070853 >then the anxiety of being poor gets turned into the anxiety of not getting fired at work. That is only if you're not interested in your job. I for an example have no degree in my field and have only 3 years of XP, but I don't worry about getting fired. Why? Because I know there are literally dozens of employees at my company with post-grad degrees who produce fractions of what I do.
>tl;dr if you're good at what you do, you don't worry about getting fired
>>26071010 >Richfolk whining about their bottoms hurting in their leather office chairs >Don't have to lift thousands of pounds of lumber in below freezing weather over the course of 8 hours, for 5-7 days a week, for $14.90/ hr (cdn)
