Summer of Money: On Right Relationship
Sometimes I think we focus too much on how we feel when it comes to money. It’s not that this is an invalid tactic (because it is so not) it’s just that it’s overused, and often to the detriment of the deeper work that should follow that focus.
Here’s a secret:
Sometimes when shit is going down I feel sick or worried about money too. Yup, me, the teacher. That’s because this is normal, and feelings aren’t expressions we’re meant to control but communication signals we’re meant to listen to.
If we reframe this idea into the context of another relationship (spouse, best friend, sister), sometimes I hate Jeff too. You know, for short spurts, when he’s annoying me or I’m having a bad day. But being in Right Relationship isn’t about feeling good all of the time, it’s about being willing to address it when you don’t feel good. Just like you would in any other relationship.
What Would Right Relationship with Money Look Like
This week we’re beginning our Summer of Falling in Love with Money by talking about the value of looking at Money as a relationship we are in and the various ways that that can be interpreted.
Got things to say after watching that? We want to hear all about it. And if you liked it we’d love if you’d share it with the people in your life who could benefit from a Right Relationship with their Money too.
