For the people that say having / earning money doesn't make you happy, tell me that when you taste poverty

Im talking about growing up in front of a swamp, in between two potato farms and eating weetbix for dinner five nights a week

I think people are saying that there's a point where more money won't make you happy. There was an article somewhere about this a few month back where they found that happiness peaked at something like $70,000/year.

There's a big difference between saying money isn't important and saying that sacrificing your happiness for more disposable income isn't worthwhile.

Having / earning money will make you happy if it makes you happy. Easy. Poverty has little to do with it. Lots of poor people who make money are still very unhappy.

This is coming from a first generation immigrant growing up with 5 people in a 1br apt for 5 years and a very low income trailer park up until high school. Try white rice and canned sardines for most of your meals too.

It's not fair to say something like that, that just because you're "poor" means that money will make you happy. Most of my friends/family that I still have contact with who make money now don't find happiness in the sole fact of having money; it's in the fact that they've made their parents proud, able to give their loved ones a comfortable life, etc. It's complicated, man

edit: just to clarify, I'm trying to say what brad said. I'm not talking about money = food on the table, I'm talking money = more luxury

I don't recommend deep metal contemplation. I recommend going out and doing something, a lot of things. It's the only way you'll discover what you truly enjoy doing.

^Yes

Find an easy job that will keep you afloat (i think everyone should work in a restaurant at least for a bit in their life, so they know what TIPPING MEANS), spend the rest of your time volunteering/getting your foot into things that you think you would like doing. For me it was urban agro/organic farming

it's easy to say that you want to do what makes you happy now, but will you still be happy 10 years later with less prospects?  who knows, but something to think about

 

the wisest thing anyone told me when I graduated college was that, when choosing your options, don't go for something that will close a lot of doors.

This reminds me of recent financial troubles and how ridiculous I felt that I was wearing at a grocery store in a $1500 jacket, contemplating if I could afford peanut butter.

I know some people in finance, including some family members. I don't know anyone who really likes it, although there are probably good days from time to time. They make mountains of money but it sounds like a horrific grind that stunts your personal life. One guy in particular has started to behave like he has Aspergers.

On the other hand, I know one guy who became rich in finance and got out young and now does whatever he wants all the time. I would be okay with that.

One other thing to keep in mind, something that I think a lot of people lose sight of, is that a job can be just a job. I enjoy my job, but it's really just a means to do other things that I enjoy in life.

Taking a year off to think things through, get my applications right proper, and swing dance a bunch. imo it is a good idea. Although seeing people my age who are starting careers doing things I'd probably enjoy doing makes me feel a bit jealous.

got accepted to an ma philosophy program this week tho aww yeah

I've been on both sides of that spectrum, not to that extreme but yeah pretty poor financially (my mother as doctor and head of a hospital was paid the equivalent of $135 a month), nowadays my parents could realistically buy anything they want (using them as an example) but we all agree health, happiness, and family are way more important. Me personally, about 2 times a day I contemplate selling all my shit except for my Orlebar Brown, moving to some clear watered caribbean island and searching for treasure on my extra leisure time (Jessica Alba circa 2005 included)
Point is the happiest I've ever been is at a place that is completely free and only one piece of clothing is required well not even that really biggrin.gif For me at least money doesn't bring happiness, it is very short lived when it does. I know I am writing this on a fashion forum where i myself have spent 1k on boots but at the end of the day all I am thinking about is jumping in that turquoise water and going fro a swim
