Happiness is a complicated word to define, in general or in a place of money. Everyone has different way of measuring delight. Some people believe that money can purchase happiness, while others express a different opinion. As far as I am concerned, even though having a lot of money offers us more choices of what we can do, money can't buy happiness because money can't buy love and time.
To initiate with, money can't buy love. Happy life generally comes from taking good friends and family who care about us. Being around loved one makes our life expressive and cheerful.
Some people getting a huge amount of money every year, she was not gratified because she didn't have any close friends or precious one who really cares about her. On the other hand, I have seen many people who have happy lives lacking money because they are enclosed by love.
In addition to the preceding point, in often case, people have to work very hard to receive a lot of money, which means they have not as much of time for their secretive life. For example, one of the person how own his business works 6 days a week. He is successful person because he earns good money. However, he is busy all the time so that he doesn't have time to spend his money as well as he is stressed out. Even though people have money, if they don't have time to enjoy their life, it is valueless money.
To sum up, even though money is vital for us, it can't buy cheerfulness because love and quality of life bring you happiness.
