Financial Responsibility Is Self-Care. 6 Ways To Relieve Your Financial Stress

Financial Responsibility

Before joining Wallet Squirrel, money was a major stress point in my life. The term, “Financial Responsibility” was something I was not familiar with. I didn’t know how to properly manage my own finances. I did not know how to budget. I came from a well-off family where I saw my parents act as they wanted it, they bought it. I learned later in life this was not true, I just didn’t see them quietly saving money on the side for two so they could buy that Lexus.

Anyways, my lack of financial responsibility and knowledge was not a good situation to be in. We were burning through our savings and slowly amassed some credit card debt.

At this moment, I was stressed. I was nervous. I was anxious. These emotions didn’t allow me to be a good husband or friend. I didn’t know what to do from here.

Over the last six to seven years, I have learned that actually being disciplined with money is very freeing. I no longer have any of those negative emotions revolving around money. Though we are not where I want us to be yet, I am actually very happy where we are financially. We are heading in the right direction. It is a long game.

If you are feeling the same negative emotions I did, it is your turn to take on financial responsibility for self-care. While it is challenging, it is worth every penny!
