It’s your job to look after yourself; expectations ruin relationships

Melissa Ambrossini introduced me to the idea of 'expectations ruin relationships'. To me, it really solidifies the need to look after yourself, and to take ownership of building yourself up. It's too big of a job to rely solely on someone else or other people to do it for you. Once upon a time, I…

I love my mum and dad, and could quite easily live with them for the rest of my life. But for some of you, the thought of that would make you cringe. But I must say, financial freedom is liberating, empowering and something we all strive for and hope to achieve one day. I don't…
