In yesterday’s post, Lola Granola discussed the belief that so many women have about their own financial incompetence and ability to provide for themselves. Economic vulnerability is a real stick-with-the-jerk force, I get it.
But I’ve also read here time and time again, that when you leave a cheater, you figure it out. You gain a lot of competencies you didn’t know you had. That perhaps were told you did NOT have. And in fact, were probably demonstrating while propping up a FW — such as money management — but those qualities were devalued. (What, you think you need insurance when someone needs a new crossbow/set of boobs?)
So today’s Friday Challenge is to think of all the things you didn’t think you could do, that gosh darn-it, you CAN do.
Too dumb for school? Finished that degree. Don’t understand money? Got out of debt. Bad parent? The kids thrive under your reign of sanity.
Once you fired the naysayers from your life and your head, what did you discover?
