Everybody wants to be rich rather than being poor. That’s a fact. Who don’t want to be rich? First of all, you can enjoy a lot of things that money can buy; you don’t have to worry about matters related to money, controlling your expenses, etc... Also, you don’t have to worry about your living, for example: fear for losing a job, saving money to raise the child, etc. In addition, you can choose to study where you want, get a bachelor or master degree, get involved in some kind of activities and still don’t need to worry about the tuition fees and payments. Probably, you can ask somebody to help you doing some things easier and faster by paying them. I would say that, as you are rich, it is likely to do some charities to help the poor peoples and also participate in some volunteer work.
However, being rich does have some disadvantages, perhaps when you're rich, risk goes out the window, maybe somebody is planning to kidnap your relatives in order to earn some money. Clearly, the accounting system in your head tells you that you should save some money for some future purposes, but the temptation to spend it immediately is so much that you can’t resist and actually you go out shopping. Possibly, you will become materialistic. As a matter of fact, things will get boring, since you can afford everything that money can pay, so you will participate on things that can entertain you, for example, risky things like gambling. That’s why there are people who get addicted to gambling. Risk is for those who can afford it.
In my opinion, I rather live poor and happy, because money doesn't create happiness. Money doesn't buy you love. Money doesn't solve your problems. The more money you have, the more things you have to worry about, so, just treasure what you have.
