A question that has been plaguing people for centuries is whether or not money can buy happiness. In most cases, people tend to believe that with money in their pockets they can afford everything they want and in turn they will be happy. However, there are definitely some things that money cannot buy.
In my opinion, I believe money can make a person’s life easier, however it does not necessarily mean it can buy happiness. Money cannot buy a person’s love, however it can definitely attract a crowd of people who are only around solely because you have money.
In a study released by the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), it revealed that less than half of Canada’s millionaires become happier as they accrue more wealth. The reasoning behind this is that having more money tends to mean that there are more problems.
Millionaires have to often worry about handling their wealth, which includes their savings for retirement and succession planning for their businesses.
Despite what I have said, it is not like I am a millionaire to actually explain how it feels, what has been said is more of my idea of what may happen. Most of it is from what I have seen. In most cases, when people reach a certain level of wealth, they do not even have time to enjoy what they have earned, and by the time they can actually enjoy it, they are at an age where they may only be able to do a limited amount of activities.
What do you think? Can money buy happiness or not?
