Fortunately, as a culture, we’re starting to reject the “inevitability” of abusive relationships. It’s no longer acceptable for parents to beat their kids, or for spouses to verbally, physically or psychologically abuse their partners. We’re cracking down on everyone who perpetrates domestic violence, from football players to politicians. We’re teaching our kids and teenagers about the dynamics of abusive relationships, and how to set healthy boundaries for themselves to avoid them.
But there’s one type of abusive relationship that’s still tolerated in this country: It’s the abusive relationship too many of us have with money.
In my recent Psychology Today article, “Are You in an Abusive Relationship with Money?” I not only help you to recognize if you are in an unhealthy relationship with money, I outline what it takes to change that relationship for the better.
You can’t break up with or divorce money, so you may as well learn to live with it.
