    Una sa lahat, that's not even the topic. Pangalawa, really? Yan ang comment niyo? Lolo, ang bitter niyo ha :rofl: As far as you know po, mahirap lang po ako dito sa Canada, pero kahit mahirap lang po kami at hindi niyo sing-yaman, meron po kaming stable income at work benefits. Kung mawalan po ng trabaho ang isa sa amin, mabubuhay po kami sa single income.  
     

    Thanks for worrying ha, lolo, but before digging your nose onto someone else's business, take care youself muna ha. Patapos na po ang buhay niyo dito sa mundo pero ang bitter niyo pa rin sa buhay. Mukhang hindi niyo nakita ang totoong kaligayahan sa buhay. Ang toxic niyo kasing kausap :lol:

    PS. My baby is half white and I was never with a half-black. Stop fabricating stories to gain advantage. 

    PPS. Gusto niyo po ba ng mga number sa mga retirement home? Mukhang kailangan niyo na tumira in an assisted living facility. Lumalala na talaga saltik niyo.

    There is no such thing as true happiness, no false happiness either. It's either happy or not. Intindihin nyo kasi mga sinasabi ko; Ang simple/basic sentence wag nyo lagyan ng other meaning. Makita nyo loved ones, ma promote ka, swertehin kayo sa negoyo, makita si crush, it's happiness, walang true or false happiness.

    Any thoughts are welcome naman in regards to the topic.

    Pero dickers, mababaw lang ang kayang maabot ng wavelength ng utak ko so bare with me ha. So if I got it right happiness is just an illusion?

    Smiles from my kids and my wife's appreciation that I can dish out even in the middle of this pandemic. For the moment, that is.

    Bakit kailangan lagyan ng "true"

    if you feel loved, seeing your children's success etc, it's called happiness, bakit kailangan lagyan ng "true"? So if may true happiness, meron din false happiness? Nakakab0b0.

    I think what she meant is that there are levels of happiness.

    Sometimes, there are happiness that are 'superficial' (in Tagalog it's called "mababaw na kaligayahan").

    Example: there are forms of depression wherein people will buy material things ie use money, to 'fill the holes' in their lives temporarily. It's a symptom of obssessive-compulsiveness. They 'satisfy' a superficial need, but they do not or cannot really get rid of that depression (which oftentimes they don't even know they have) ie the source of their unhappiness.

    The sad part is after the temporary "high" that you get from material acquisition or money spending, then comes even WORSE depression realizing that it just scratch a temporary itch and or because they fall into even bigger debt. It's similar to an addiction (and in fact it is, like gambling or drugs, there are severely indebted people in the US/Western world, usually women who get addicted to shopping).

    Money is common mistranslation of "happiness". When you acquire money and you use it to make your life easier, it does get rid of the things that may make you 'depress' ie fear of ruin, financial insecurity, ability to buy treatments eg mental health care.

    But money itself doesn't get rid of your mental health problems, it doesn't give you a wife/husband that truly loves you for who you are, it doesn't give you friends, it doesn't give you hobbies that keep you satisfied, it doesn't give you happy memories that sometimes flash in your mind at random times of the day, giving you a smile out of nowhere.

    Money/wealth is a tool. It helps you to acquire those things you really need...but in many cases 'acquiring wealth' is misconstrued as 'using wealth' properly.

    Many people don't use it properly or know how to use it. Good example: Hollywood. Look how much $$$ and fame these people have...but look at how much mental health issues there are.

    Look at countries that are wealthy = they lead to high rates of suicide (look at Korea and Japan).
  • true happiness, kahit mahirap ka, limitado lang ang resources mo masaya ka, maaaring dahilan kung bakit msrami pa rin sa atin hindi pa alam kung ano ang magpapakasaya sa kanila dahil usually iisa lang talaga ang thoughts natin ang maging "success"sa buhay!

    Yeah so in Dickie's case, nakahanap lang ng pera, masaya na, that's like a case of "ignorance is bliss." :lol:

    Kahit sino naman hindi liligaya kung walang pera.. Yung sinasabi ni meow na hapi na siya pag labas at isinilang ang kanyang anak? natural kahit sinong mga magulang talagang sa saya, pero iyon ay hindi pang walang hanggang kaligayahan, dahil kailangan mo tustusan at gabayan ang kanyang paglaki at diyan papasok ang pera at salaping gastusin.. Hindi puwedeng halik at yakap at pagmamahal lang sa bata.. Kailangang meron kang panggastos at pambili ng damit, baby foods atbp.. Diyan mangingibabaw ang kahalagahan ng kuwarta.. Hindi ka mabubuhay sa mundong ito kung wala kang kuwarta.. Sa totoo lang.. Wag na kayong pakunwari...

    Bakit nagkakagalit ang mga mag aasawa han?, mga kamag-anakan? Magkakaptid?.
       Sa magasawa hindi puro tabihan na lang sa gabi!, oo masasabing masaya ka dahil sa pagtatalik ninyo at walang perang namagitan kung hindi damdamin ng isat-isa na ibang kasiyahan na di mabibili ng kuwarta.. Masaya kayo..
         
         Parating ganong pangyayari at minsan umaabot na wala ng lalabas sa kuwarto at puro seks at lambingan. Napaka saya nila.. Ang siste ito palang minahal ay wala ni isang kusing na pambili man lang ng pitong gatang para sa pitong araw kahit lugaw manlang.. At ang masama ay guwapong is tambay at walang trabaho.. Ngayon? Importante ba ang kuwarta sa bawat isa na kumakalam na ang sikmura? Kuwarta ay kakambal ang saya at kaligayahan.. Sigurado yan!

    Hindi lang naman pera nagpapasaya sakin ah, real friends, my cat, career, success, loved ones, fast internet etc to name a few

    Ano ang mga gusto nyong bilhin or puntahan? don't tell me wala kayong gustong bilhin sa entire life nyo even shoes or wallet? Pag nabili nyo ang gusto nyong bilhin, hindi ba kayo sasaya? I remember long time ago, i built my gaming PC i7, super excited ako at the time at pinopost ko gameplay vids ng games ko, mga year 2010.

    KASI TINGNAN NYO HA, I WILL STAND BY MY OWN WORDS!

    If it wasn't for money, para saan pa bakit ang ibang tao ay grabe magsumikap, hard work etc? para saan bakit nila yun ginagawa? Ano ang possible reasons kung hindi pera ang dahilan? Ang apple company ay magpapatuloy ba sila lumikha ng apple products kung walang kinikita company nila? After din sa pera mga yan sa legal na paraan. OFWs, dahil mas malki kita sa ibang bansa, get over it na after din kayo sa pera dahil ayaw nyo sa 10k pesos a month.
  • art727art727 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Kahit saan pa galing ang perang pinambili mo ng gusto mong bilihin BDS, natitiyak ko ang dahilan ay sa perang naipon mo o ibinigay ng mama mo.. Kuwarta ng bigay na nagpasya sa iyo. Kung wala kang perang pambili tiyak malungkot ka, ganon din kung wala kang maibigay na regalo sa gf mo. Masaya man siya sa halik at yakap mo at nanduon ka sa kaarawan niya!, mas masaya lalo kung may pera kang pambili sa mga alam mong paborito niya.. Pagkain o damit o sapatos kaya'.. Hindi masaya kung di kayo makalabas dahil sa kawalan ng pera.. 
  • O lawd, you're overcomplicating the topic. This is not a question of, "can money buy happiness?" This is not as much of a grey area as the other thread is. 

    Telling me I need money for my child's future when all I said is "my baby makes me happy" is a lot like telling a joke to your parents and your parents turning that into an hour long lecture because they didn't get the friggin point. 

    You believe money is the be all end all of happiness and if you can't think of anything that doesn't point back to money to describe your idea of true happiness, then that says a lot about your character and upbringing.

    Saying money can buy happiness is an oversimplification of facts. You can't even explain why money makes you happy without branching out onto other things. Imagine living in a world where currency holds no value? What will become of you? :lol:
  • Ewan ko lang. Siguro si Dickie at art, they skipped childhood where happiness can be found everywhere. When I was a kid, I lived in Pampanga and I may not recall a lot of things pero I remember the genuine happiness that I felt in little things like catching dragonflies.

    Lol if your relationship is only being held together by money, your relationship is a lie. Love, respect and trust come first.
