Do family members make requests of you that you normally would never honor, but you do in the name of “the holidays”? If you don’t do the activities you’re looked at as that family member who is selfish (and you feel terrible about yourself). (more…)
I freak out about money. We all do money and deal with money issues differently. Don’t judge people with or without money. Most people don’t know how to handle their money.
