TOP SECRET 🤫 CONFIDENTIAL ‼️ CLASSIFIED 🚫 “Everybody does it, it’s just that nobody talks about it 🤫.” - wee movie ref to kick the second post off #ifyouknowyouknow
So I AM DYING to talk about money. I’m not sure if it’s a UK thing, but the whole “don’t talk about finances, it’s in bad taste” really confuses me. The world literally revolves around money (in a practical sense), we spend the majority of our days/lives working for it in order to live, and no one wants to talk about it? WHAT 😐 and WHY🤔? I really don’t get it.
When I stumbled across the #debtfreecommunity I was absolutely astounded! All of these people speaking out about their own terrible/fantastic situations was so comforting, motivating and liberating. I thought FUCK YEAH 💪 It is amazing to see so much openness, knowledge, support, advice and humour from person to person in every circumstance. I love it. And believe we need more of it! I’m a hypocrite though, because as much as I say all of this, I haven’t told anyone bar my boyfriend, and my mum to an extent, of what I’m trying to accomplish. Which ultimately is financial stability and security. And happiness of course 😊 (I am a happy person btw, I mean in the sense of financial stress and anxiety). So I suppose another aim for embarking on this IG journey is to build my own confidence in discussing money with people in my life. I’d love to pass on the learning and guidance that I have had, but then think “it’s awkward”, “who am I to advise?” or “it’s none of my business”. And it is awkward/none of our business because this is our money mentality, and it stops us from reaching out to each other when we are in need. It’s a vicious circle ⭕️. So, in the meantime I will continue to depend on the DFC and it’s genius🧠😄 I’d love to hear your thoughts on this 👃🗣 #debtfreecommunity #debtfree #wealthbuilding #babysteps #daveramsey #financialfreedom #retireearly #personalfinance #financialfreedom #firstpost #money #debt #saving #budgeting #budgetlife #retireinspired
