Default So...why do people with money off themselves?

This is a general question, sparked by recent news. So, you know about the Chiefs murder-suicide; after new details came out, and he and his GF were arguing over financial issues recently....so he killed her, and hopped in his BENTLEY to do himself. Wait wut? Financial issues, 25 years old, Bentley, one of the most overpaid professions ever? How?

My only theory is possibly it's the thought of losing the money that makes them do it? If you had a taste of the best of life, is losing it worth life it's self?

Thoughts, not about the mentioned case, but rich suiciders in general?

Stress. Depression. Mental illness. Money doesn't buy happiness.

Many of the richest people are also the most stressed and the least happy. Money can make you happier, but it doesn't make your whole life perfect.

Considering that the preponderance of evidence, and by evidence I mean studies, disagrees with you I'm going say the funny thing is your self-delusion.

Man kills his bitch over not getting paid in the Projects, with a gun he got from selling drugs. Jump into his 89 Buick Century, and blow his head off.

Same story happens every day and no one will care. Just another domestic. Case closed.

Just as you would be on your own death bed, money would be the last thing on your mind.

I pretty sure money does buy happiness but up to a point, in fact there's actually been studies that prove this. However I think when something is broken physiologically sometimes can't be fixed regardless of money.

This

+ No Moral Compass

+ No self-discovery due to the fear of judgement and persecution within their social/family circle.

A lot of it stems from childhood issues.

Ex.) Girl is born and father denies her existence because he is an idiot. Girl grows up with daddy issues, marries football player, dies.

The rich are used to their wealth so they dont entangle their issue's with there lifestyle........unhappy is unhappy.

A rich guy seldom says screw my bad day I'm rich...they are normal folf with big waalets and purses.

Work pressure, no emotional support, retarded kids, and a clueless shopaholic wife would do it to you.

I don't find that to be true often. There are those who choose to be poor, because they spend their money on useless things.

Just look at smart phones for example. Most people who are struggling financially have the coolest smart phone with unlimited plan, texting, etc, etc. Look at the cars they drive? Don't they have $3,000 chrome 22" wheels on their 2005 Dodge Charger?

And they don't have $$$ for rent. Need help. I'm poor.

Pick any government housing project. I'm not wrong on this.

The only study I am aware of that shows something similar is one that says that any income above 70k does not increase happiness. Moreover that study ignores the international studies on happiness and is exclusively us-based.

This, there are a few countries happier than the US, and no they're not the uber-small/rich places that are the size of a city. It was in my social psych course and I don't have the list, but pretty sure Libertarianism was a strong correlate.

Money can buy happiness if you're not stupid. Lots of trips all over the world, bring family, nice meals, and new experiences everyday.

How could you not be happy if one day you could rent a ferrari in the swiss alps, and the next day your great white fishing in south africa, and the next your trekking to the north pole.

Lets disregard the fct you'd be tired as hell lol.

U.S. is pretty much the most capitalist and one of the lower-taxed nations in the world, so I'm pretty confident other countries would have similar results if not more so.

I think the conclusion of that study was that once people have enough money to be reasonably financially secure when it comes to the basics - food, shelter, basic health care - it's all more or less relative.

Like I said, you get used to things. G/f's parents have a multi-million dollar house with a killer view. But frankly after a couple days staying there, I often forget about the view and the space. After you go to Vegas and stay in a huge suite at a 5-star hotel and get bottle service, even a 4-star hotel and just going to a club seems like a letdown. Likewise people with Hondas try to get BMWs, people with BMWs try to get Porsches, Porsche guys are trying to get their first F-car... they may be mostly happy with what they have, but they also get used to it to a certain extent and just want more.
