SHOW NOTES: This episode is part of our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series! Our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series integrates our financial goals into our overall strategic development plan for surpassing our goals. In this episode we are examining the issue of , “Always have the ability to support yourself financially! Here's why.” 

Being an adult is awesome! Our episode today focuses on a serious outcome where an adult is treated like a child and disrespected, controlled or even abused.How could it occur that a capable adult would be told what to wear, where to live, what to eat, who to be friends with, etc.? It is often the result of an adult ceding financial independence to another adult. 

When an adult is financially “dependent” on another adult (their parents, other relatives, friends, romantic partners or anyone else), an unhealthy individual can exploit that and engage in controlling and/ or abusive behaviors. The ability to know that we can support ourselves financially frees us of any of these potential negative outcomes.When we support ourselves (either in actuality or we have done so in the past and maintain the ability to do so if needed in the future), we are free to enter into and nurture healthy, supportive, enriching  relationships! 

When a person “stays” in a job, marriage, friendship or family relationship simply out of the desire for money, everyone loses. Also, even the most stable lives can be toppled by death, illness, disability, natural disaster, war, etc., so it is important that we all ensure that we have a back-up plan for supporting ourselves financially as we never know when we may need to do so. Let’s discuss!
