wealth does not necessarily guaranty happiness. To what extent do you agree with this statement.

Happiness comes from different sources. Some
individuals
concur that having a sheer abundance of wealth does not ensure eternal bliss. I totally agree with the above statement. Having tons of
money
,
however
, can make someone feel elated in some ways.
For instance
, people have the capacity to buy luxurious things like cars, houses, and branded clothes. These could bring them joy and excitement.
Nonetheless
,
this
does not guarantee long-lasting happiness.
Moreover
,
individuals
can be happy depending on what they value in life
such
as family, kindness, peace and camaraderie.
Individuals
who barely make ends meet can still be happy because of the love and kindness of the people that surround them.
This
source of blissfulness is something that
money
cannot buy,
hence
, it must be treasured.
Furthermore
, not all affluent
individuals
are blissful.
This
is primarily because
money
is not everything. To exemplify, a wealthy businessman, who makes
money
hand over fist but living alone, can still feel emptiness despite having all the grandiose possessions in life.
This
is because he does not have any family to dine with him during meals and no one to share with how his day was.
Thus
, making him feel poorer than the poorest.
In addition
,
money
can be the root of family or sibling rivalry that divides them rather than unites them. An example of
this
is when a member of the family become successful, jealousy arises. It is,
therefore
, creates a wall between siblings and families. In conclusion,
although
being financially well-off can provide a temporary joy, I am of the belief that genuine happiness comes beyond any tremendous amount of
money
like having a complete family
that is
healthy and friends who treat you like family.
