(262) What does it feel like to be financially rich? - Quora

As someone who made a few million, my experience is money just removes a certain set of problems.  Life will happily provide further problems to fill the void.

For example, I don't worry about how much I spend on meals.  I can take vacations whenever and wherever I want.  If something breaks in my house, I can call someone to fix it.

But, I still have the constraints of my physical body.  Being rich doesn't do much for health.

I still want to make friends and socialize like everyone else.  Being rich doesn't help much in that it doesn't attract the right kind of attention.

I still need to find meaning and fulfillment in life.  Being rich is something of a double edged sword on this front.  On one hand, it gives me the freedom to explore these questions.  But it also removes constraints and urgency, so it's easy to endlessly navel gaze about these ultimately unanswerable questions, rather than have circumstances pressure me into action.
