How long does the happiness you get by showing off lasts?We know some people around us who finds happiness by showing off. This is what we say money can buy happiness. But I have always doubted why do people spend so much of money just to show off. Even if it makes them happy, how long will it last?
The money you have spent is gone forever, but will the happiness that you get in turn last forever?
Some people spend too much money on weddings, to buy cars and other luxurious, just to show off. I am not saying they should, in turn, spend this money on charity, but at least keep it aside for themselves. We never know how tomorrow will be. We might be in need of money and at that time rather than running behind people, just save this money so that you can use it later when you are actually in need of it.
By spending too much for a wedding, others might be surprised and might talk about it for a day or two but later, people forget as they have other important things in life.
I don't get the motive behind such an act. How do you feel about this practice and do you think the happiness we get is worth the money we spend?
