Sorry I’ve been away, busy settling into a new place with new routines. Anyway, it’s been a struggle financially since I moved but I’ve somehow managed to not go bankrupt yet. My boyfriend has always struggled keeping work, and after 6 weeks of searching he found a job only to loose it about 6 weeks later. Yes I was livid to say the least, but after about 30 minutes I relaxed. It’s not that I stopped caring per say, but it hit me we’ve been ok this far so we can manage for a little longer. I’m just wondering if I’ve actually calmed down about finances or my brain has finally snapped and I’m just ignoring the impending doom on the horizon. How can you tell the difference?
It doesn’t matter, really. I mean, it’s good you’re calm. But, the important thing is to find a job. Or invest $$. Or put an ad in for yourself (tutor, dog walker). Or rent out a room. Or become an Uber driver. Get the $$!!
We do our best thinking when calm and our worst thinking when distressed. Now that you are calm, write down the numbers, money coming in/ money going out and make best choices based on this numerical reality.
