Money and Fame Does Not Buy Happiness

    The old adage "Money doesn't buy happiness" was apparently true in the case of Robert F Jr. Kennedy's ex wife Mary. It was announced that she committed suicide. Having fortune and fame is not a recipe for a happy life, so try to find your own happy place.
    getting someone help when depressed is so important and the hardest task of all.

      From someone who's dealt a lot with unhappy people and having tried to be a positive presence, I can say this in response: Money does not ENSURE happiness. It is a contributing factor, and there are things you can do/accomplish with money that can make you and others happy that aren't available to those without money. Yet money is not a guarantee for happiness.

      I encourage everyone to try and help the depressed/unhappy who appear to be unhappy not of their own will. I also encourage people to be sensitive and empathetic to others. Mistakes can sometimes lead to very bad things, and I've been trying to keep from doing that for a long time. I don't always succeed.

      Money definitely does not buy happiness, but it can certainly make your life easier (so you don't have to work as much, etc.). wink

        Money can buy a happier happiness than the happiness you may already have discovered.
