Money is of course very important for human beings to lead a decent and
satisfying life. unlike animals and plants, money defines the existence of human
society as we cannot live without it. Money is an important exchange for food,
shelter and clothing.
Many people believe that money si the root of all evil.
But contrary to that, I believe and agree that money is the key to human
happiness. it has become indispensable in our lives when humans began using
money for exchange of goods and services instead of he barter trade which was
popular hundreds of years ago. Humans work to earn an income that would enable
them to bring food to the table, clothe themselves as well as indulge in
pleasures that can be obtained only through money.
When we are able to afford goods and services, it inevitably grants us a lot
of happiness, satisfaction and stability in our lives. In many poor countries
such as Africa, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and others, millions live in misery due
to extreme poverty. They are deprived of happiness, dignity and a sense of
direction n their lives as they live from hand to mouth and their future is at
best uncertain. Thus, it would be foolish to think that money causes distress,
and is the root cause of immorality and evil behavior. On the contrary, most of
us earn an income through legal means which allows us to maintain a good
standard of living. it enable us to travel for holidays and have access to good
food, medical facilities, and a lifestyle that grants us much happiness and
satiety. Many parents admit that they slog at work so that thy could provided
comfort and stability to their offspring. Money especially comes in handy when a
family member is stricken with a disease and cash is needed for treatment.
Unhappiness results when we are denied the above. Many families struggle to
make ends meet and the lack of money almost inevitably sows seeds of
unhappiness. They are exposed to continuous bickering, quarrels and ultimately,
There are of course those, due to greed for more material wealth, resort to
illegal means to become rich quickly. They commit robberies, murders and cheat
to get ahead in lives. However, this does not grant them the happiness or the
peace of mind. In the case of robbers and murders, the constant threat by the
law enforcement authorities closing in on them, creates jitters and a life full
of uncertainties and fear.
Hence, money would always be looked at as the most or at least one of the
most important keys to happiness. it has become a part of what defines us as
human beings as it allows us to live a life of dignity, happiness and
