Money and Relationships
Money and relationships. They’re intertwined in many ways, even if you only think about your own relationship with money.
What does money mean to you? Is it security, power, lack, fun, or something else entirely? It could even be a combination of things, which seems likely because both money and relationships are complicated things.
How you think about money (and the history of your relationship with it) affects your actions and reactions as well.
If you grew up poor, maybe having financial security is more important to you. If you grew up in an environment where the things you wanted just appeared, maybe you aren’t aware of what’s required to provide those things. Or maybe you’re in a family where you handle all the finances, and your spouse or significant other is in the dark.
Regardless of your history, it can be useful to see what beliefs you’re holding and how they might be impacting your current actions. Do you agree?
