Our Relationship with Money

by Shervin on June 25, 2012

Money is one of the taboo subjects we do not like to talk about openly. For many it is a painful relationship that we choose to avoid talking about because of what it may signify about us and our “worth”.

Money can be our neglected partner. We interact with this partner, we consider this partner in our decisions, and we trade our best times of our lives to have more of this partner.

We build our relationship with money at an early age. We create a belief system about it and live and experience our life under shadow of that belief. As time goes by we forget that money is just a tool rather than an ultimate goal. Sometimes money will help us manifest our dreams quicker and many times may blind us in seeing the path to our real happiness. Money is the means not the destination.

Money

You may either hate me or love me.

You may work most of your active life to have more of me.

You may worship me like a deity.

You may want to get rid of me as soon as you have me!

You may think I am evil!

You may think I am the key to your happiness
and the actualization of your dreams.

You may stay in a dreaded relationship to have me.

You may leave a relationship because of me.

You may feel worthwhile if you have enough of me!

I am intrinsically abundant.

You have agreed to consider me scarce and valuable.

After all I am just paper and ink!

I have been the source of many conflicts in many families.

I have also been means of healing for many.

I am here to have a relationship with you till the end of your life.

I can overwhelm you if you are not clear about your worth!

You desire me for the feeling that it creates in you.

You can have this feeling now
without having me in your hands!

Value and love yourself as you
relate to and value me.

I am just paper and ink.
