Pain the Knife
Of all the forms of pain, fiscal pain is the least understood, but most prevalent. It is felt every time a parent must say no to their child due only to a lack of money. The need may be high, the relevance for the child great, but when the money is not there, no must be said.
That lack cuts like a knife. The pain is deep. It is real. That pain will keep one up at night with worry. From where will the money come? The need isn’t a luxury. It is a need. It is necessary.
Fiscal Pain, letting go
Must people deal with this pain in one of two ways. They get credit of some sort: cards, loans, etc. The handle the need immediately and pain for it over time. By the end of the term of the loan and all the interest, they have paid for that gap many times over. It is not a good way. It is broke thinking. All the extra cost is consumed and they have less than they should.
Others will go the saving route. They place an amount aside every month. Until the then, the need is tolerated and managed as best they can. Other needs may get neglected for the greater good. They let go of their needs. The tunnel is long, but there is no extra cost similar to the loan route. Patience is learned.
Fiscal pain, blasting it away
There is another route. It is one that requires far more sacrifice than any other route. It requires change in the mind and spirit. It may lead to more pain before the recovery. The end will bring total relief. Along the way, one will be changed into the person required in one’s life, by one’s family and one’s community.
Do you have what it takes to go the better route?
