Do you manage your money like a pro…or does your money manage you?Share on Facebook
Money does not buy happiness, everyone knows that. Except that it does make things easier! It’s strange, but when we are young, no-one really teaches us how to manage our money intelligently. Barring exceptions, it is often something we have to learn by ourselves, by trial and error… and some errors are more stressful than others! If you have accumulated debts on your credit card, you no doubt know what I’m talking about!
The current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic has possibly created some turmoil in your finances, by reducing your income and making the future somewhat uncertain. But, apart from what we are experiencing at the moment, it is possible that money is a general source of stress for you. Do you have difficulty in meeting all your expenses each month? Do you always feel as though you are stretched to the hilt and that if you had a bit of bad luck, for example if your computer died, you would be in real difficulty? Do you sometimes find yourself in a cold sweat at the grocery store cash when you need to purchase a quart of milk and are not sure whether your credit card will accept the debit? Perhaps you also have a super project in mind, such as a trip or returning to your studies, for which you try to save up, but your savings account continues to be depressingly empty in spite of all your efforts. Discouraging!
