    Re: Do you hate money? Does money make you miserable?

    Having too much money is a problem I wouldn't mind coming across to see if it makes me miserable.
    Whenever I hear things like this I always refer back to the movie, "Blank Check."

    Yeah it's really to bad he got hurt- he really could have helped the receiving corps. this year. I think once his broken leg heals he should be pretty productive next year.

    Re: Do you hate money? Does money make you miserable?

    at a job interview for a bank
    Mr. Simms: Do you have any experience?
    Robbie: No, sir, I have no experience but I'm a big fan of money. I like it, I use it, I have a little. I keep it in a jar on top of my refrigerator. I'd like to put more in that jar. That's where you come in.

    I am a capitalist and I love money, so no I would never do that.

    From my experience, only people who have always had money think it isn't all that important.

    Re: Do you hate money? Does money make you miserable?

    I think the key here is balance.....and I think that can be said for almost anything. You have to balance career with family with friends, etc.. Too much of one makes another suffer, and ultimately you suffer. Money doesn't motivate me, although I like it a lot. I'm driven by competitiveness, but not to the point where other parts of my life suffer. Whenever I'm unhappy, it's usually due to an imbalance somewhere.

    No one is responding to this but I thought it was funny.

    Well, let me be your first former poor person who does okay now, but doesn't particularly care for money.

    It's a means of exchange - that's all.

    Pleased to make your acquaintance, btw.

    Re: Do you hate money? Does money make you miserable?

    Bill Gates & Buffet gave their money away to charities to avoid paying taxes on all of that wealth. They still have control of the wealth, & the 'fraction' they kept personally is more than most can dream of, but do not think it was out of sheer kindness or spirituality. They are good at making money and maintaining/increasing wealth. By donating to charitable entities, the wealth stays away from others' hands.

    I am not wealthy, but I am relatively happy. Some of the most miserable people I have met, especially in the past few years, are very, very wealthy people. The two do not have a direct correlation, nor is it inverse. Miserable people are not confined to just the poverty-stricken.

    Re: Do you hate money? Does money make you miserable?

    Does it matter if they're paying it in taxes or giving it to charity? I actually appreciate them giving a ton to charity vs. just paying taxes.

    I watched that movie for the first time in probably 15 years this summer. It's amazing what $1 million could apparently buy you in 1993 or 1994.

    Re: Do you hate money? Does money make you miserable?

    As far as the thread goes...money can be good. money can be bad. It depends how you use it. It's all in how you advertise or how you DONT advertise. I grew up in a fairly wealthy family, but was taught from a young age it's not good to show off money or flaunt it to other people. Even though my parents had money, they acted as if they weren't rich and they were very very happy.

    I think it all comes down to how you handle it. Having money is not a bad thing, unless you let it control you and you do stupid things because of it. Money though allows you to live a comfortable life and have certain experiences you otherwise wouldn't have. Money with a sense of humilityity is definitely not a bad thing.

    Love rules all though
