Is money happiness?

MONEY can buy many thing but not EVERYTHING.

Happiness is not all about money . happiness is about enjoying your life the way you previously thought about and a good family around you who can always with you withstand with you in all situations .

suppose a child of poor family live with his parents and eats his breakfast lunch and dinner with their parents by their hands and feels the joy ,happiness ,feeding by the hands of parents ,and plays with them .

Now suppose a child of very rich family whose father is a Businessman who comes always late in home and child wants to eat with them but can’t as he sleeps earlier and father came late and went early morning and he just wishes to play with him at that time the rich child feels himself as a poor and feel sad about that.

    I have a few questions for you to think about:
    How can you prove that money makes you happy?
    Even if you ‘think’ it does, how can you be sure that it is not something else that is making you happy?
    I believe that money can bring happiness, but only if you use it in the right way.

    This is because, for example: if you are very poor and you decide to enter the lottery; even though it is your first time entering and you are very unlikely to win anything, but you still want to enter just to see what it is like, ignoring the fact that it will cost you your days savings. If you then win £1,000,000, you are going to be seeing people that completely ignored you when you were poor and now that you are rich they are constantly knocking on your door, wanting to become your friend.

    My point is that you make a lot of 'false friends' with people just because they want some of your money. This shows that you are not always going to be happy with loads of money (even though you can buy anything that you want). Many people that you thought were your friends turn their backs away from you when you say no to them, this can cause sadness and feeling isolated, just through winning a lot of money.
    Evidence to back up my point is: 'I wish that we had torn the ticket up' -a quote from Jack Whittaker who won $315 million, through the lottery in 2002.

    The point I am trying to make is that money does not always bring happiness, in fact that millions of people that have it, wish they had never got it.

      Excellent reasoning and scepticism shown. Well done! Can anyone disprove these points and give examples to support your thinking?
