Money is usually seen as an absolute people and unfortunately, in many societies or at least smaller communities, being oriented towards earning money usually mean you a bad person. This is a very unfortunate attitude that is creating absolutely unnecessary problems.
Money cannot spoil people as people in general cannot be spoilt. Even if you look at the sad examples of a young generation raised by very wealthy parents who behave as if they are better than anyone with a smaller amount of money, this is not the result of having money. These are just poor souls who did not receive any proper attention from their family when they were young and, in all likelihood, their parents used money as a substitute for love.

This deprives you from crucial understanding of happiness that is life itself and makes you rely on various external conditions.
Payment for happiness

Indeed, there is even a separate form of a phobia popularly known as cherophobia that is basically a fear of happiness.
