Good Exercise

I too believe your money management relates to your adolescence, as that’s when we learn about money first. Most assume schooling should teach you money management or your parents, and truth be told, the only person that can teach this is ourselves. I’ve been learning how to manage my money just recently, as I’ve finally accepted that money is real, and can cause many real problems. I always took for granted that getting everything you wanted was the best thing, and I know it’s quite the opposite. Earning everything you want, is the path to take, and just getting everything you want, is not an accomplishment. I believe money management can’t be taught or learned, but rather be an everyday lesson that never has a graduation date. Nobody is perfect, and money often points that out, but that’s how we learn.
