Money is Emotional
Let’s test something real quick, read this out loud to yourself: 100,000; $100,000.
How did you feel when you added dollars? Money should evoke an emotional response in us. It’s not just a number, and that’s ok.
Money is emotional, there’s no avoiding that. According to an article on Forbes, money tends to evoke four different emotions in us: fear, guilt, shame, and envy. Of course, these can all be interrelated, but the most common way we have seen it in people we’ve worked with is a fear of how badly their finances look, and the guilt and shame from not taking steps to fix it.
According to Psychology Today, anxiety about money is completely normal, and the best way to fix it is to be dispassionate about it.
