This is not to say that rich people do not experience stress or cannot lead unhappy lives. I know unhappy wealthy people, they exist. But at the end of the day, if an unhappy wealthy person wants to seek therapy or buy a comforting dinner, they have the means to do so.
This was an interesting read. I’ve been in both positions having grown up in a very low income household, and made a lot of money from my career.
I’d say that merely having money won’t guarantee happiness. However, having a lack of money will certainly make you unhappy.
Thanks for writing!
