I tried to be “the good daughter.”
I tried to be “the student.”
I tried to be “the woman who does it all on her own.”
I tried to be everything that I thought I was “supposed to be.”
But what I found is, who I am supposed to be is who I already am.
Money and finances are a big part of your relationship. Whether you pay for things separately or together, your money is being combined in a way that is supporting both of you. You share the roof over your head, the food in your kitchen, the utilities being used, the wifi. You both use them, so it’s time to stop treating your significant other as a roommate to life.
I spent 22 years not feeling good enough or worthy. I tried pleasing others through my job, my accomplishments, the amount of money in my bank account. I tried to please others by only showing what I wanted them to see on the outside. While on the inside, I felt like I was suffocating. Alone. Unsupported.
Then I found love. I opened myself to love.
I’m not just any other coach out there. I accept you exactly as you are, flaws and all. In fact, your flaws are what I love most about you. All those things that might have made you not feel good enough, those are my favorite things. I accept you as you are, free of judgement. I love your worries and your accomplishments. I love you when you are struggling financially because it just means that you get to overcome this. I love you when your money situation slows with grace and ease.
