7 Things Everyone Loves And Needs That Money Cannot Buy

Having money is essential, but again there are plenty of things that can bring joy to your life that money cannot buy. Let's dive into the most important things money can't buy. This way you can become emotionally balanced with money as well.

1. Mental health.

One of the most important things money can’t buy health, and it certainly can’t buy mental health. Being stressed out all the time and not taking time for yourself can lead to anxiety and even depression. Throwing money at the problem won’t necessarily fix it, either. In fact, you can work so hard for money, that you end up burning yourself out.

This not only impacts your mental health but can also lead to other health complications, like insomnia, and can even increase your risk for developing other health issues like heart disease. And while money can pay for medical bills and expenses, it can’t buy back your peace of mind and natural health.

2. Healthy relationships.

Money can’t buy a healthy relationship, whether that is with your partner, family, or friends. If you’re constantly fighting with your partner, buying them an apology gift won’t fix it. If you’re in a toxic, draining relationship, no amount of money will fix the issue. You can't put a price on having meaningful healthy relationships with those you love. The only thing that can build healthy relationships is to spend quality time together and be kind.

3. Time

I’d love to be able to buy extra time in the day or one of the "time-turner’s" that Hermione Granger used in the Harry Potter series. Sadly, those do not exist in real life. Money can’t buy you more time. We all have 24 hours in a day, so it’s important to use them wisely. The same is true for our length of life. While medical advances over the centuries mean that we live longer than we did in the Middle Ages, we still haven’t figured out a way to live forever.

4. Happiness

One of the other things money cannot buy is happiness. You can have all the money in the world and buy all the latest gadgets, but it doesn’t guarantee that you will be happy. Happiness is internal. There are plenty of people who have lots of clothes, a big house, and everything they could possibly want, but they are still unhappy. If you want to be happy, don’t throw money at the problem, trying to find a solution. Instead, focus on enjoying the things in life you do have.

5. True friendships

If you have a lot of money, you might find a lot of people who want to be friends with you. But that doesn’t mean they are all your true friends. You might find that when you need those people the most, they suddenly don’t want anything to do with you. True friendship is another one of the most important things money can't buy! No matter how much or how little money you have, make sure to tell your friends who have stuck by you the longest how much you appreciate them.

6. Respect and admiration

You might think that having a load of money automatically makes people respect you. But that’s not true at all. Sure, people might envy you. But envy does not mean that they accept you for who you are and have given you their trust. The same goes for admiration. It’s your accomplishments and actions that command admiration from other people. So even if you’re a millionaire, you can’t buy someone else's admiration and respect.

7. Inner peace

People who have a lot of money can have the same fears and worries as everyone else. Just because you don’t have to worry about paying the bills, doesn’t mean you’ll have inner peace. You can reach a sense of calmness without having a lot of money. And in fact, it’s nearly impossible to have inner peace if you’re only thoughts are about money. The only way to truly have inner peace is to practice mindfulness and inner awareness.
