Does money make you happy? Is money all you should ever care of?

Probably the only time when money can make you happy is if you’re income distends. What will you do when you have too much money? most people would just spend the extra dollars on unnecessary luxuries. Too much money could also result in less happiness because most of the time you would probably be worried about your money getting stolen and such, therefore spending most of your time making sure your money is all right.

The rest of your problems can only be fixed via friends and family which you have most probably lost or fallen out of contact with for a long time due to the sheer excitement of getting rich. Therefore most problems are going to stick with you and won’t turn into happiness.!
