    It basically creates stress and keeps me from doing the things I really want to do.   And it makes me nervous, because there are things that could happen that would require money I don't have.

    When I've got enough it equals freedom to choose what I want to do and where I want to live.  When I haven't had enough, it's represented the need to work (give my time) at jobs that didn't inspire me.

    Like everyone else here has stated. When there is financial flexibility, it like much more of the world is available to me. But when their isn't enough money to even cover the bills, it feels as if I'm imprisoned, and a slave to it.

    I have to positively say that money has affected my life in the most wonderful of ways. I am able to provide for my family, give them all the things they want or need without questioning whether I can afford it. But I have to agree with most of the people that have answered this question, when you have money life is amazing, you have quite a vast amount of freedoms and pleasures but when you don't posses money you have constraints and unpalatable taste for life at times. So I guess the real question that should be ask is how has money affected your life in your current status and how has money affected the environment in which you live?

    Money can affect in every body life as compared to one who work continuously for a day to earn extra money and one who earns money without working. This is difference between Rich and Poor. An average earner for annum has to struggle to earn upto his satisfaction.

    the question caught my attention quickly , The bible states what ever state you are in to be content. So with that in mind and the passing of my dad . I quickly saw what was important was time with the ones you love. However I have learned to set goals and hold on to my  dreams . Money can not make the person but the money when made to bless others becomes one more tool in our hand . So with or without it , we have the God given right to be happy and love and forgive The greatest things are free ,salvation ,a walk in the park,the beauty of the clouds ,a drive by the ocean,a kind word,a helping hand. Money is nice to have but with or without it we should be able to focus on the ones we love by looking for ways that will better bless them  will draw opportunities  to us.So here goes,may your dreams come true,may all your tears be wiped away,may you say a kind word to a hurting soul,may you forgive those that have wronged you in Jesus name and that will make you rich .your friend  Sharon E Dix

    Money has always impacted my life positively. How positive the impact has been has varied according to the amount of money I had and the need I had for it at the time. Does that make sense?

    I have been in the position of having more money than I needed, and while it did allow me to provide well for my family the time I spent away from them to make the big bucks was very damaging.  Managing large amounts of money also is taxing (in more ways than one).

    I have also been in the position of having little or no money. Having no home of my own, staying with friends while I tried to find work.  That was hard, but it was enlightening to find out who my true friends were.

    Most times I'm just sort of in the middle; wishing there was a little more money but getting by on what I have.  Longing for what I can't have produces stress.  Learning to be content with where I am in life allows me to focus on what is truly important.  When I do that, my life is filled with riches money can not buy.
