Your Money might say that it is Single. It meets up with you from time to time.
But it doesn’t feel any sense of commitment. You play around, but Money soon departs to meet up with someone else.
So Money comes and Money goes.
Eventually, you meet up with Money that seems like it wants to hang out with you. This Money reports that you are In a Relationship.
It’s still new…you’re still getting used to having Money around. You’re still getting to know each other.
But at least this Money doesn’t run off with another person every chance it gets.
At some point, you and Money get Engaged. You make an initial commitment to each other.
You begin making preparations to make it all legal. You start to trust Money.
But then, Money calls it all off.
That’s when It’s Complicated. You’re not sure what happened.
Money seemed devoted to you and your future. But it got cold feet and ran off.
You know it’s not you; it’s Money. But you still wonder…what did you do wrong? If you examine the situation, you’ll realize that Money wasn’t giving you what you really needed.
Sure it was fun. You would go out. You would have a great time. But you weren’t building the foundation for a lasting relationship.
So you learn more about relationships with Money. As you discover how to maintain a healthy relationship, you and Money decide to get Married.
The wedding is an informal ceremony. Few people attended. Of course, there was a loved one or two. No minister was necessary.
Just your professional advisors. They were there to help you get what you want out of your relationship with Money.
You’ll want to check in with them from time to time, just to make sure you and your Money are fulfilling all your desires.
Everything is wonderful. You love Money. So much so, that you get possessive.
You don’t let Money out of the house. You try to save Money just for yourself.
But you feel empty. And Money isn’t at its best either. Money doesn’t do well holed up at home.
So you and Money come to an agreement. You will be In an Open Relationship.
You’re still committed to each other. Money wants to help you fulfill your heart’s desire. It likes to get out with you and explore the world.
But it also wants you to willingly share it with other people.
Money is a tool. And not the bad kind unless you turn it into that. Money can be a force for good. But it needs your help.
Money follows your lead. And a healthy relationship with it leads to BIGG success!
