We have all been there where we are so overwhelmed it paralyzes us. You pull out your to do list and it is long. Or you walk in your house after work and see an unbelievable mess in every room. Or maybe you have a project, a school assignment, something you need to work on with work, and it seems so overwhelming that it stresses you out and you just can’t seem to take the first step in getting started. And so what do you end up doing? Nothing.
I believe that out of control finances is one of the biggest, and often overlooked, causes of feeling overwhelmed. We see more stress, couple fights, and depression when we’re in over heads when it comes to finances.
We live in a time where clutter seems to be free to reign in our lives. We accumulate “stuff” and are often too afraid to get rid of it that we hold onto it for way longer than is necessary. Can you relate? I totally get it! It is difficult to get rid of things, especially if we think it’s something we are going to need again further down the road. Or we may hold onto it for sentimental reasons or just because we are too afraid of what it would mean to throw away.
