The True Wealth You Can’t Buy With Money: Relationship

by | May 3, 2022 | Life

True wealth on this planet of having healthy relationships

Throughout history, philosophers have defined what it is that makes us feel happy and content. Aristotle thought that happiness was the result of living a virtuous life, while John Locke believed that people were happiest when they had achieved their potential. 

Today, psychologists agree that the most important contributing factors to a person’s happiness are their relationships with others. Whether this relationship is with a family member, friend, or even a stranger—the positive feelings that come from human interaction are one of the most important components of feeling fulfilled.

What is True Wealth?

Wealth is the abundance of valuable resources or materials, especially money or property.

Relationships are like a currency that you can use to get what you want in life. Once you master relationships, there will be people who will want to do things for you, and they will be willing to pay their price in order to do so.

When your car breaks down or a recommendation for a job opening or even just someone to talk with when you feel lonely. Good relationships also make us happier, and there’s evidence that happier people live longer.

The thing is that good relationships are built over time. They aren’t fleeting, and they don’t come from the amount of money someone has in the bank. So, if you’re trying to foster and maintain good relationships, don’t put too much pressure on yourself about what to buy for other people for this holiday season. Just try to have fun with them—and maybe buy some flowers or chocolate as a sign of your affection!

Human beings are social creatures. We have been conditioned to thrive off of human interaction. While physical wealth can help us live comfortably and amass experiences that bring us joy, the relationships we cultivate with other people can make or break our happiness.

In each and every relationship that you have with one another, there is an expectation of trust and respect for one another’s feelings and opinions. In the sacredness of our relationships, we find the foundation for a happy and successful life, a foundation that is built upon trust, respect, loyalty, and love for one another.

Nothing can be more destructive to the success of a career or business than having a bad relationship or someone who is difficult to get along with. It seems as if throughout every aspect of our lives, there are always those people who like to make things difficult when they don’t need to be. It’s easy enough just to say “good morning” or “hello” when we pass someone in the hall or walk past them in the break room; but just like everyone else, some people also need to learn that life isn’t about building yourself up by tearing others down.

In the business world, many people would consider their success to be measured by their material goods. However, the truth is that regardless of whether or not you have a thriving business, if you do not have a strong set of relationships in your life, then you will not feel fulfilled.

The problem with material goods is that they lose value as our lives go on. For example, when we purchase a car, it is worth a lot to us because we want it so badly, but after a while, it has lost its novelty, and we begin to take it for granted and don’t care about it as much anymore. This same principle applies to everything else in life. Even if we were to give away our money and goods to others, we would still be left empty-handed without the relationships that mean the most to us.

Why relationship is the real wealth,

True Wealth

We all know that money can buy material things. But when it comes to life’s most important things, wealth is defined by what you have instead of what you’ve got. One of the wealthiest people in the world can be a lonely man with no one to share his riches with. 

A strong relationship is more than just an emotional connection with someone else. It can be considered a physical manifestation of your shared experiences and the culmination of your interactions with each other. 

It is like a living creature—it grows, changes, and adapts as you both do. The best part about relationships is that you don’t need to take care of them alone; your partner shares that responsibility with you. Though it’s not always easy to overlook bad times in favor of the good ones, it’s crucial to every person’s well-being.

Money is not the only measure of wealth. In a time where it’s possible to measure our wealth in social media likes and blog views, we sometimes lose sight of what matters: real relationships with the people in our lives.

All the money in the world can’t buy love, success, or happiness; only true relationships can do that. Your relationships with your family, friends and loved ones are worth more than any amount of money you could ever make or spend.

The relationship you have with your friends and family each brings its own kind of wealth. In the end, it is the relationship that matters most, not the money exchanged during holidays.

However, even those who have all this stuff find it’s still not enough. There’s always something missing from their lives—it could be a loving relationship with a spouse or a child; it could be happiness inside themselves that only comes from an inner peace; it could be joy derived from helping others, or it could be something else entirely. It doesn’t matter what it is—the point is that there’s something more than material wealth out there.

Thus, relationships are the most valuable commodity in life, and if you don’t have them or don’t nurture the ones that you do have well enough, there’s a good chance your life will feel empty.
