More Money, More Problems?

The concept “more money more problems” has been publicized in the media for years. Many people believe money can solve all their problems. In today’s money hungry materialistic society money has become looked at in such high regard, because you need it for pretty much everything. So this brings up the question does having more money equivalent more or less problems?

More Money Less Problems

If you’re like me and do not have tons of money and sometimes struggle to pay your bills each month. It may be unreasonable for us to have any compassion for the problems that some wealthier people face. In most of our eyes having large sums of income coming in every week be life changing. In generally most people would assume that having money would solve majority of their problems. How many people would love to have the money to pay their mortgage payment, car payment or credit card statements? The idea that having money would somehow cause us more problems may seem far-fetched.

The Reality of Money

We all know that in order to live a healthy and prosperous life that you need some type of constant income. The question is how much do you really need or want to live the lifestyle you want. This can become problematic because having money is great until we realize that having “more money” can bring up issues that we may not have preconceived we would have to face. Such as envy, hate, jealousy, more expenses i.e. bills and the responsibility that having a lot of money comes with. These problems might seem small and insufficient to someone who doesn’t have very much money.  The rich have problems just different kind that might not be upon the minds of people with a couple less zeros behind their paycheck.

Final Thoughts

Money cannot solve all our problems or remove every worry, but it does have the power to reduce stress in tough times while providing opportunity in good times. In the end money is necessary and with more of it we can have some of our stress alleviated. What do you think if you have more money would you have less problems?

  2. A lot of people’s stress deals with finances in some way so I think having more money eases stress at least. It can be more problems if you spend too much of it still!

  3. Definitely depends on the individual. It’s like giving an immature 20 year old a Ferrari as opposed to a matured 40 year old. Sometimes a person attains wealth and riches before he/she understands the value, or it’s given to them so they don’t have any respect for it. At this point in life I don’t believe in the saying more money more problems. Besides, a lot of the time we create our own problems by making poor decisions.

  4. Really it’s a perspective thing. Either the glass is half full or half empty. For a person like me less money more problems is the mantra because my main obstacles at this point involve finances.

  5. I don’t believe money creates or solves problems at all. It’s energy and we need to constantly check ourselves. It’s us that create the more problems in any given thing. So, if someone is feeling like more money is bringing them problems, they should check their feelings about money. That’s often the source of contention.


  6. I’m torn, with more money comes different problems. They ease the strain to pay the bills but it will give life to other things. The potential to live beyond your means, or to become a mean person, it is a toss up. You can also become a better person.

    I believe that to be true if you are not humbled enough and reckless with God has blessed you with. We’ve all had times I’m sure where we’ve been reckless and irresponsible but when you know better you do better in my opinion. Therefore, my take on it is that it only creates a problem when we are careless with it.

    Great article, this was really eye opening. I personally don’t think money can solve all worries in life, but yes it can solve a certain things. No matter what situation we are are in life, we all are facing some or the other issues, I do feel it’s about perspective and positive approach. After all, how we deal with our issues results in shaping our life and our lifestyle.
