Money Or Health?
Every person needs money and health in order to survive. It is not just a matter of happiness that these two things bring to your life. Without money and health, a person wouldn’t have much of a life at all. You need money in order to afford the necessities of life and pay your bills. Money can afford you food, clothes and a place to live. Without money, it is fair to say that a person wouldn’t be able to stay healthy either because they couldn’t pay for their healthcare costs. You can also get unhealthy by simply working a job that you hate. If you have a high stress job that you despise, eventually all that anxiety will strain your heart and you will have a heart attack.
You need to implement more happiness into your life if you are going to stay healthy. This does not always involve making money either. Happiness can come from working a job you love, even if it is a low paying job. So, is money more important than health? Well, if you are dying of an illness and have $500 billion in the bank then that money won’t do you much good.
You need to be healthy in order to spend your money and enjoy life with it. You may be able to stay alive a little longer through dialysis if you are sick because you can afford the best medical treatment. But still, your quality of life would be diminished and you would have to depend on constant supervision from a medical staff in order to stay alive.
Is that kind of life really worth living for if you could have a lot of money? There are many arguments that can be made to support wanting more money versus wanting to be healthy.
