Money is deeply personal. When you go through a tough time and make a decision that winds up costing you money or just don’t pay close enough attention to where your money is going – that can create a sense of financial guilt.
We don’t get this sense of guilt out of nowhere. And yet, at least in North America, it is not a topic that gets discussed very openly.
In our most recent episode, a duo cast, we talk about where this sense of guilt comes from and how to get beyond it. There will be a path forward for you and often it can happen more quickly than you think.
So much of our context and understanding of money comes from our upbringing, how we saw our parents handle money, how they maybe even fought about money. Money is a huge topic, especially in relationships, and especially as we look backward to our past. This looking back can have a lot of impact on our financial shame and financial guilt. So let’s start looking forward.
When we work with people, they are often surprised when we help them see a path forward that is both hopeful and much quicker than they imagined. It does take discipline and planning, but guilt is counter-productive. We’ll share our perspective and tips you can use today for getting out of debt and creating wealth now and in the future.
