同样，对收入、储蓄等财务状况不满;婚姻、爱情、友谊等关系也会破坏幸福。重要的是要记住，虽然不满可以摧毁幸福，但它不受个人富裕程度或财富量的影响(Oishi & Kesebir, 2015)。在他的文章《幸福与满足?麦肯齐谈到了幸福和满足。作者说，像满足或幸福这样的情感不应该被视为与美好生活的竞争关系。人们常常把其他几种情感与幸福混为一谈。这篇文章是帮助读者理解幸福的含义。例如，他们倾向于把满意、幸福和满足当作幸福的同义词，而事实上，每一种感觉都传达着一种不同的情感。因此，与满足共生关系的幸福量是一个独立的实体(McKenzie, 2015)，与富裕水平无关(Oishi & Kesebir, 2015)。我觉得幸福是一种感觉，不取决于人们的生活条件，而是取决于他们的心态。
当我感到快乐时，一切似乎都很好。理解幸福是一种精神状态总是很重要的，因此，尽管数量因人而异。这是一种源自个人心态的感觉，而不是基于财富和金钱(Oishi & Kesebir, 2015)。不有形或无法量化的幸福;分享时呈指数增长。因此，一个快乐的微笑可以使无数的人快乐，不需要任何额外的努力。有趣的是，物质和金钱提供了短暂的幸福，但它只是短暂的(Li, 2015)。持久的幸福在人与人之间传播，来自于个体之间无数的爱和关心的小举动，而不依赖于他们的经济环境(Oishi & Kesebir, 2015)。一个老人被单独留在富丽堂皇的房子里总是不快乐的，而同一个人在他或她的家庭中会很快乐，即使不那么富裕。
Similarly dissatisfaction with financial circumstances like salary earned savings and so on; relationships like marriage, love, friendship and so on also tends to destroy happiness. It is important to bear in mind that while dissatisfaction can destroy happiness, it is not impacted by the level of affluence or quantum of wealth with individual (Oishi & Kesebir, 2015).In his article “Happiness VS Contentment? A Case for Sociology of the Good Life”, McKenzie speaks about happiness and contentment. The author says that emotions like contentment or happiness should not be treated as a competing relation to the good life. It is commonly seen that people tend to confuse several other emotions with happiness. The article is helps readers to understand the meaning of happiness. For instance, they tend to use satisfaction, well-being, and contentment as synonymous with happiness while in fact, each of these feelings conveys a different emotion. Thus, the quantum of happiness while having a symbiotic relationship with contentment is a distinct entity (McKenzie, 2015)and is not related to affluence levels (Oishi & Kesebir, 2015).I feel that happiness is a feeling that is not dependent on people’s living conditions, but rather on their mindset.
When I feel happy, everything seems so good. It is always essential to understand that happiness is a state of mind and hence while the quantum would differ from person to person. It is a feeling that arises from individual mindsets and not based on wealth and money (Oishi & Kesebir, 2015). Happiness while not tangible or quantifiable; grows exponentially when shared. Thus, a happy smile can make countless people happy without any additional efforts. Interestingly while material goods and money provide momentary happiness, it is only fleeting (Li, 2015). Lasting happiness that spreads from person to person grows from the countless little gestures of love and caring between individuals and does not depend on their economic circumstances (Oishi & Kesebir, 2015). An aged person left alone in a palatial house would always be unhappy, while the same person in the midst of his or her family would be happy even if less affluent.
