Money, whether we like it or not, plays an important role in our lives. We need it to keep a roof over our head, put clothes on our back, food in our bellies, amongst other important contributors towards our happiness.

Money becomes a problem when we let our insecurities drive our financially related decisions. When those decisions are made to impress others we don’t even care about, and hurt us financially, we create a problem. That doesn’t just apply to our purchases, it applies to our work too. If we hate our work, but we’re scared to leave because we fear we won’t have enough money, or we have debts to pay, or we care about how we’ll be judged, we feel imprisoned.

So much of our anxiety and stress is caused by money, and therefore it’s an important topic.
