Most people have dysfunctional ideas about money stemming from childhood and society.
If your parents said, “I’m not sending you to soccer camp. You don’t practice enough during the off-season, so it’s a waste of money,” the message that you might have heard is, “I’m not worthy.”
If your parents complained about the expense of child raising, you might think, “I’m a waste of money” or “I’m an obstacle.”
These ideas stick with us in adulthood. We’re afraid to ask for a raise or promotion, because we still think we’re not worthy. We’re afraid to start our own business or speak up for our needs within a relationship, because we still think we’re an obstacle.
We soothe ourselves by projecting negative emotions onto money itself.
