    I was watching a documentery in which Prince William of England was talking openly with people from different walks of life. It was about mental health and how they have managed or not managed to deal with issues in their lives.
    Some of those he spoke to were soccer/ football players on fairly good salaries compared to the rest of society. However they felt that the pressure they were under to perform every match caused them depression when they under performed on the pitch.
    He also spoke to other less fortunate people, but none the less suffering from lack of self esteem, depression, anxiety etc etc.
    So that leads me to ask how important is money to you and what things you feel money can't buy?

    How true Jack
    That's why I felt the need to ask.....we should always be aware of how blessed we are, but imagine having enough money to do whatever you wanted, yet still be unhappy!
    Hence "Money isn't everything"
    I remember a small number of Lottery winners saying it didn't bring them happiness.....but I still do it!

    I am no Royalist, but by way of correction, the British Royal Family reign over all British countries, not just England. A common mistake, but a better one than the view that London is a country, as many Filipinos seem to believe.

    If you have enough money to not worry about paying your debts and feeding your family then you can concentrate on whatever makes you happy... therefore money does buy happiness :smile:

    True - I gave up saying I come from England to avoid the blank look and just say 'London'.

    Once I was then asked by a sales staff female if she could ask me a "personal question" - getting ready to whip out my ruler (not a euphemism) to get it to the exact mm, when she asked "Is it true that in London they have vampires?".

    It can buy you a stunning woman, followed by an expensive divorce.

    Health problems here, as in many other countries, can bankrupt a person.

    How nice to think that whatever happens you have no worry.

    And no one needs to be miserable due to having excess money - just give it where it can do some good.
