One of the leading causes of people becoming lost from their identity is financial difficulty.
It is tough to be yourself when you are worried about keeping the roof over your families heads. Many people will do whatever they have to in order to provide for their loved ones. Here are key pillars to keeping our identity intact through focus on our financial self:
Protect your income
Budget/ Emergency Fund/ Will
Kid college savings
When our finances are under control and we are stable, we then remove one of the leading stressors that impedes being centered in one self.
