My sister Devora just put it so well. Money is the biggest party-pooper. No one ever wants to invite him to a party. The whole time he says things like, “You can’t do that! You shouldn’t do that. It doesn’t matter that everyone else is doing it.”
Credit Card, on the other hand, is everyone’s best friend. He says, “You don’t have to worry about it for 30 days! Just do it. Have fun! Go crazy! You still have credit available!”
lol I love it. She’s so hilarious. And we were talking about it because it can feel so sucky to want to do something so badly and have money whispering in your ear, “This is irresponsible of you to do.”
…But I want to!
Of course Credit Card is the real enemy. I once spent money I didn’t have but it was by mistake. I made a big mistake in my budgeting. But to do it consciously, I just don’t get that. I always remind myself that even if it often feels like most of the people around me have more money than me, it’s not necessarily true because they aren’t necessarily spending money they actually own.
There still are things I so wish I could do…
