Hey everyone! I came across this powerful post today about how inflation and financial struggles can have a massive impact on mental health. It’s a topic that isn’t discussed enough, but it’s time to shed light on it. Let’s dive deeper! 👇
The Link Between Money and Mental Health:
Growing up as a refugee from Laos, I experienced poverty both in a third world country and here in the United States. My single mom and I were constantly struggling to make ends meet. It was tough – not knowing if we would have enough food on the table, relying on food banks that offered expired items, and living with a constant scarcity mindset.
These experiences took a toll on our mental well-being. It affected how we viewed ourselves, how we perceived abundance, and even impacted our physical health. I witnessed the emotional and psychological abuse of poverty not only in myself but also in my mom, who now suffers from early onset dementia.
Stress piled up as my mom worked multiple jobs just to keep us afloat. It became so overwhelming for both of us, and our mental health began to tank. And this isn’t just our story. Countless individuals, especially parents who struggle to provide for their families, go through the same mental strain.
Breaking Free from Guilt and Societal Expectations
Society sometimes makes us feel guilty for wanting more, as if money and wealth are reserved for “evil” people. But that’s not true. We need to break free from that belief. By embracing abundance, we empower ourselves to do good and make a positive impact in the world.
Money can be a force for good in the hands of good-hearted individuals. Moms like the ones in my community have the biggest hearts and a deep desire to serve others. They can make a tremendous difference with the resources they have. So let go of the guilt and embrace your dreams!
It’s important to acknowledge that mental health and mindset play a crucial role in achieving financial success. You can make all the money in the world, but if you’re trapped in a scarcity mindset or feel undeserving, it won’t bring you true fulfillment.
The Importance of Mindset and Aligned Action
That’s why I’m so passionate about helping others transform their mindset and develop a healthy relationship with money. By shifting our mindset and taking aligned action, we can create abundance not just for ourselves, but for future generations and our entire community.
The Power of Money in the Hands of Goodhearted Women
So remember, money in the hands of good-hearted women is powerful! Together, let’s break free from the guilt and shame. Let’s cultivate a mindset of abundance and use our resources to uplift ourselves, our families, and our communities.
I’m incredibly grateful for all of you in my community who are doing the work to transform your mindset and create a better future. Keep pushing forward and never forget that you deserve abundance and happiness. I’ll catch you next time! 🙌✨
