Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Because the world is changing so quickly, people now are less happy or less satisfied with their lives than people were in the past.

It is a common belief that nowadays people are less cheerful or less satisfied in comparison with the past, due to the drastic changes which are happening on the earth. I agree with this view to some extent and I believe that people are less happy due to both constant changes in the world and economical problems. On the one hand, It is true that the earth is changing constantly in different aspects, and this leads to drastic changes in society's demands and meaningless achievements. The car people drive, the destination of family trips, the maximum level of education, and so on. people are working hard to achieve a particular goal in their lives, but as soon as they achieve it, a new technology comes or something changes and their achievements get meaningless. In this case, people are faced with the fear of missing out all the time. In fact, They lose their motivation and satisfaction. On the other hand, I believe that people lose their happiness and satisfaction due to certain economical problems, and drastic changes in the world are not the major reason for this hopeless society. Economical problems lead to financial and psychological problems among people. people could not afford to buy a small condo or a new car, Although they are working full-time. Besides they do not have enough free time to rest and be away from stress and tension which directly will cause different psychological problems. for instance, a young employee does his best to prepare a suitable life for himself and his family, but due to society's economical problems, he can not afford to cover his family's needs. As a result, he will be angry and hopeless.All in all, people are not satisfied with their lives anymore. In conclusion, Although I accept that quick and constant changes in society make people feel bored and unsatisfied, I strongly believe that recent economical problems are the main reason.
