Not sure what has happened over the past couple of years but I find myself caring less and leas about the stupidity of others with regards to piss poor financial decisions. I am not sure if it is maturity, immaturity, age, zen focus, lack of focus, selfishness, becoming jaded, etc., but I stepped back the other day and realized that I don’t get as heated any more when I read about someone doing something dumb with money. This is true both in my personal life as well as in the online world.
I Still Love Talking About Finances With Most People
I am not a financial planner, but I love discussing personal finance topics with anyone that wants to talk about it. Whether it is running calculations for friends, running this blog, my investment club, etc. I love doing it all (well the investment club is trying at certain times)!
I have just found myself commenting less and less when I read a blog post about someone who is so dumb it would make the Evan of 4 years ago irate. Similarly, I don’t push friends and/or family anymore on topic of spending, investing, etc., unless they engage first.
I have come up with two possible explanations that are not mutually exclusive:
- I have accepted the fact that a lot of people just don’t care about their future finances; and
- I know I am doing the right thing by my family
