Is Money More Important Than Friends?

Happiness is hard to define, because it is different for everyone, and when we ask the questions is money more important than frriendship, the only way friendship would win, is when we are factoring in happiness. In regards to survival  and having ones basic needs met, of course money is more important. 


  • Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. --Epictetus.
  • Money often costs too much. --Ralph Waldo Emerson.

To live a fullfilled and balanced life we need both friendship and money. 

If  we examine the question with logic, of course money appears to be significantly more important to our survival on a materialistic level.  

With that being said, like money friendship is a geat rescource to have. Strong frindships can provide us  with money in times of need. However, asking a freind for money is deeply disempowering. All of use should be able to takecare of our own financial needs. 

Having money is the foundation for life. For that reason, I will say it is signficantly more important than friendship. 

Having money can  improve the quality of your life, and the quality of your friendships. Honestly, who wants to hangout with the people at the homless shelters. This is not to say that remarkable people are not poor, this is to say most people will never see how remarkable you are if you are poor. Is Money More Important Than Friends?(eH

Money is as impotant as air. Without money we cannot have independence. Without money we need others. With money comes a great amount of freedom. The freedom to work when we please, go on vacation, eat and buy the things we want. 

Money allows us to be in control of our own lives, and if we wish, we can even use money to have other people work for us and do the things we don't want to do, like clean the toilet and wash the dishes. We can even hire people to write books for us and then put our names on it. 

We can even change our appearnce overnight, get plastic surgery and look more beautiful than god intended us to look.

The expression cash is king, is very true, but does that make money more important than friendshipThe simple truth about the world, is the person with the most money, is in control. 


People say money cannot buy happiness, but that is not true. For the rich, money cannot buy happiness, but for the poor money can. Money can buy safety, security, a house, food, water, shelter and yes friendship and love, because most people are not interesed in the poor for love or friendship, so of course money is more important than friendship. 

The truth is, the question is Money More Important Than Friends, is a generic question.

There are really two ways to ask and answer this questions. 

        1.) Is money more important than friendship for the poor? YES

        2.) Is money more important for the rich? NO

Privilege is when you
think something is not
a problem because it's

not a problem to you

personally.

When people tell you friendship will buy you more happiness than money, they are lying. If you are poor what are the chances you have good friends?

 Would a good friend let you be homless? 

Would you rather have someone to hangout with under the bridge or your own house to stay in?

Only a person with privilege can say friendship is moe important than money. Anyone who has even been disempowered by the lack of money and has known that sharp pains of poverty knows money is more important than friends, because where are your friends when you are poor?

Lyon, You are right. Without money your time is held hostage. You are trapped between trying to be on the job and preserving your health. You are trapped between caring for your kids and affording the time to do so. Poverty is the thief of time. And so it goes.
