Financial literacy is a language you learn, but the problem is, many of us never learn it properly. Many of us openly don’t want to learn the language, and rather choose to hide behind our fears as to why it’s not for us, and why it’s ok for someone else to be responsible for our financial health. I know this, because I lived this. More importantly, I made the choice to live like this.
For some reason, and for a long time, I carried shame with me in association to money, and never wanted to talk or think about it. Those feelings of shame escalated into feelings of being undervalued, and undervaluing myself. And the stark reality of being undervalued caused a dramatic turnaround in my life.
After some serious self-reflection and intensive self-love development, I knew that those feelings were old, outdated, ripple effects from a different time, a different context, and I decided to take accountability for how I was going to change not only my mindset towards earning, having, enjoying money, but my relationship to what exactly I was going to do about it.
I made the choice to take control over learning a language that felt intimidating, unimportant, beyond my scope, inaccessible, and scary AF. It’s a genuine moment of empowerment, realizing that you have more control, more knowledge, more say, and more presence in your money than you think you do, and I’m sharing first steps on how to get there today on the blog.
