look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
I feel like there is a different meaning to this. Financial security is needed and takes away stress. However, after you have all the money you NEED for things…. That is where this comes in. The celebrities in their huge mansions with all the money in the world are no happier than I am with my family. Money doesn’t buy happiness. Happiness comes from being surrounded by those you love and who love you….. At least that’s what I think of when I hear this saying… It helps me to realize that sometimes I need to realize that I have what I need for the time being…. That I will be happier if I spend my time with my friends than searching for a new job with a slightly higher pay….. That kind of thing..,.
