Money doesnt buy happiness
Money doesn't buy happiness. I had my dream job and made over $50k a year but I still wasn't happy when I didn't have friends or a gf. There have been numerous studies done that show that having a job you love (even if it doesn't pay well) and having good relationships with friends, family, and a significant other are the keys to being happy in life. A poster from this site who has severe SA and struggles to connect with people once said
"What a crock of s*it!
I was just calculating my net worth, and to my surprise, I found that it now tops $2.9 million.
If anybody thinks money buys happiness, they're living in a fictional fantasy land. Why am I not happy if all it takes is money?
Any of you guys have more money then me?
Despite what my critics will think, I'm in no way bragging and I don't judge people for having financial difficulties. Patty, my dearest friend, is broke, but I still very much adore her (and, no, it's not sexual in any way).
If one day you get money, you too will see that not a damn thing changes. Consider Howard Hughes. Hughes was the wealthiest man of his era, worth something like $900M, yet he was bats*it crazy, suffering from a terrible case of OCD (and likely other problems). He spent the final 20 years of his life in total seclusion, such that authorities had difficulty just IDing the body. He died with a bunch of broken needles in his arms, from where he shot codeine. He was VERY rich and still VERY mentally ill."
"But I'm not good at anything!" Well, I have good news -- throw enough hours of repetition at it and you can get sort of good at anything.
Don't like the prospect of pouring all of that time into a skill? The good news is that the sheer act of practicing will help you come out of your shell. People quit because it takes too long to see results, because they can't figure out that the process is the result.
