1. How to Cope with Being Broke, Angry and Ashamed  The Cut

Been broke, angry and ashamed before? Have a read. You’ll relate with many of the points. The article is an interview with Amanda Clayman, a financial therapist who partnered with the wildly popular Death, Sex and Money Podcast, to create a series of Financial Therapy series.

But beyond that, let’s talk about anxiety caused by financial situation. In case you didn’t know, that type of anxiety is really, really common. We feel bad when we are not making enough. We feel bad when we make too much.

(How? – you might ask. Think of people who feel bad over their work taking time away from family time).

Have a look at other types of money anxiety at the Death, Sex and Money podcast page. Chances are you’ll find someone you can relate with.

1. My First Investment Portfolio for 2020 (Dividend 2030 portfolio)  Sivasathish.com

Everyone says welcome to a new personal finance blogger, Sivasathish! He’s a senior lecturer, a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and a self-confessed conservative, low-risk, long-term stock investor.

This is is current investment portfolio, which he plans to track and share until 2030. Amazing detail and super clear writing style. Whoever interested in the stocks market can follow.

I like how (1) he repeats again and again that he’s NOT a professional (no stocks guru feel, which I like), and (2) how his students say nothing but good things about him! See the comments section – so full of notes from his students. This type of student-teacher interaction is super endearing 🙂

1. What Happens To Your Brain And Body When You’re Stressed About Money  Huffington Post

When you’re stressed about money,

  • you start making bad decisions even when you know better,
  • you may get anxiety, depression and other mental health issues
  • you may get physical ailments like heart disease, diebetes, chronic sleep problems too

This is one of those ‘pick your hard’ moments. It’s hard – damn freaking hard – to force yourself to earn more money so you don’t get stressed about it anymore. But you can argue that the alternative – STAYING in the current situation without doing anything about it – is also just as hard, perhaps even harder.

The article suggests credit counselling, attending theraphy and seeking healthy coping mechanisms to reduce stress. Do that, you owe that to yourself, don’t give up. I’m rooting for you.
