Those of you who are money minded have seen the title and immediately thought about your income and outgoings, whereas those of you who are not, are probably thinking about friends and family who take it out of you emotionally. This post is about emotional well being – people can be liabilities. I was watching Finding Financial Freedom on KICC TV and Pastor Matthew made the statement that I have used as the title for this post. You know when you hear something and it strikes a chord – “Don’t Invest in liabilities”.
Starting with the social, emotional side of things there are people I have had in my life who simply take and take and take. Every time I talk to them I leave the conversation drained, I have added problems to my life, and possible the only thing that has been deducted is money because they have begged for some. Over the past couple of years I have eliminated these people from my life, or limited my contact with them. This is not a move to be heartless or selfish, instead I like to see it as investing in myself. I am now healthier, less stressed and more productive.
Saying yes to one thing is always saying to another. Think about it.
