I’ve always heard the saying “Nobody likes your kids as much as you” which basically means that when they are acting up in a public place, you may think it’s tolerable, but others may just want to choke them. 🙂 I was thinking about it though, and that truly applies to pretty much everything! Nobody cares about your money as much as you, and nobody cares about your debt as much as you either.
Nobody cares about your money as much as you
Think about it- retailers aren’t out handing out coupons at the register to help you save money; you’ve got to seek them out yourself. If you don’t protect your money, no one’s going to do it for you. Surely a financial adviser can tell you which funds they think are best for you, but if you don’t feel comfortable with it, then don’t do it. It’s your future, not theirs. They haven’t worked as hard as you have to earn your money.
Nobody cares about your debt as much as you
When you’re deep in debt, it can be overwhelming and all consuming. It can be the only thing that you think about for days on end. You may worry about how you will pay your bills and stay afloat. Debt sucks, and that’s all there is to it. You’ve also got to realize that no one cares about your debt as much as you. Your friends may or may not know that you are deep in debt. It doesn’t affect your relationship with them, so they aren’t going to care about your debt as much.
Nobody cares about anything of yours more than you
I once was told that if someone died, their job could replace them pretty quickly with another person, but the family would grieve forever at the loss of their family member. Don’t spend too much time working, because chances are you’ll regret not spending time with your family versus spending that extra two hours at work.
Spend your money wisely, pay off your debt, and cherish time with people you love. That’s a recipe for happiness.
What else do you think nobody cares about more than you?
