Many people believe money is a very important factor for achieving happiness others however believe that money has nothing to do with happiness. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

It is often debated whether
money
can bring
happiness
to your
life
. It is not always necessary that a rich
person
is happy: you can buy a lot of things with
money
but
happiness
is something which cannot be bought. One can feel
happiness
while sipping a cup of tea sitting on their balcony or reading a favourite book;
therefore
, in my opinion,
money
is not directly related to
happiness
.
Firstly
, a rich
person
who has
money
can buy all the materialistic things and may seem to be happy but it does not imply that a poor
person
is not happy.
Moreover
, a
person
who is always busy earning
money
and travelling for business hardly gets time to spend with his family; as a

It appears that you are missing a comma after the introductory phrase as a from result. Consider adding a comma.

neither he nor his family is happy.
On the contrary
, a poor farmer is happy with less
money
because he spends time and enjoys meals with his children.
For instance

70% of people have the desire for
money
to live a luxurious
life
happy.
Secondly
, there are many people suffering from health issues due to loneliness, depression because they have no one to share their thoughts and feelings with. Some of them are so busy working that they hardly get time to talk to their parents or close friends. On the flip side, a
person
who lives with their parents and has friends is able to cope up with bad times quickly. It is very important for every one of us to interact with someone whom we love because it gives us internal
happiness
and satisfaction that there is someone who cares for us. While I admit
money
is important it has no meaning in some aspects of
life
. In conclusion,
money
is required to fulfil our basic needs like shelter, food, clothing, etc. but it is not the utmost factor that can constitute
happiness
. Parents, family, friends are more important in a
person
’s
life
to give internal
happiness
and they cannot be bought with
money
.
