It's possible, as long as you can meet basic needs like safety, food and housing.

That being said it won't be easy, but I find that if you have simple pleasures you will be happier anyway.

Same here. Rich family, lots of problems.

I began hanging out with the poor and I have been a lot happier.

I notice their way of life is simpler, they have found a way to avoid stresses. They do what is comfortable, not always what is expected.

It does, but after about 80 k$/yr it no longer helps. Basically, all of your bases covered with a little pocket change to spare = happiness.

Goddam you fucking faggots make me sick.

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.
>>
>>26067393
Compare the life of a dirt poor person and a rich person.

The happiness and well being of the rich person is always infinitely better than the poor persons.

even at their lowest, the poor persons low is worse.

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?

it doesn't necessarily buy long-term happiness, but it makes you worry about much less shit

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

There is no reason a rich person can't have other qualities

>>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
Friends and family would make me happiest.
But I guess having money to buy new vidya, a nice house, and cute stuff would be cool.
>>
All the people that I know are rich are the most miserable fucks ever.

When you have infinite money and never need to worry about anything in life, there's no sense of achievement or gain. Life is just a stressful drag.

I'd love a pool like that. I'd get bored of it in a week. Poorfag here.

If i had money i would never stop traveling.

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.

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.

Money doesn't buy happiness. It makes it easier to find happiness, sure, but look at Elliot Rodgers for fuck's sake.

Emotions come from within people.

>>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.

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.

More like a realization. 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.

I'm not rich, but I'm financially-stable enough that I can take vacations and shit like that.

I'm not happy. I don't have friends. I don't have a gf. I don't have a real purpose in life.

I'm rich and money cant buy you happiness

what it can buy you though is absence of anxiety about money, wew laddy is it a relief to not worry about making rent like every other human being
>>
>>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
