A lot of people think money is black and white, you either have it or you don’t, and the more you make the more you will have. As I have learned on my example, it’s much more complicated than that. There was a point in my life when I had a lot of money, but I spent even more. I was very unhappy with who I was internally, so I tried to make up for it with expensive clothes, makeup, and by buying lots of things. I thought that if I just looked perfect, no one will see how broken I am inside. It wasn’t until I realized that I had a deep hole in my heart that was impossible to fill with material things. I was lacking a purpose and meaning to my life. I was longing for deep and meaningful relationships with other people. I was also deep over my head in debt and the anxiety it brought was no longer bearable.
It took me a long time to change some of my habits and beliefs, and I still struggle sometimes. I want to document my journey and lessons I have learned about money and what it represents in this blog. How and on what we spend money communicates our values, character, goals, dreams and habits. And no matter how deep our beliefs are, it is possible to change.
