    I think that happiness comes from a higher income only because, in that case, having enough money is one less thing a person has to worry about. Therefore, there is room elsewhere for that person to find happiness in the “enjoyment of life”. However, if a person earns more in comparison to the people around them, or their “neighbor”, it might make them concerned that they earn too much. It is the same situation when a person earns less than their neighbors, because either way they feel out of place and that takes away from their happiness. I think that if a person earns enough money so that they don’t have to worry about having enough, their “life satisfaction” is fulfilled and they then have the freedom to fulfill their “enjoyment of life”.

    I agree with Gabby; those who have a higher income do not have to deal with some of the problems those with a lower income have to worry about. They do not have to worry about not making enough money or finding a job. Thus, they do not have to stress out and can have a good time.
