Stay in budget this week. Money doesn’t grow on trees and you have enough to bring joy and happiness to your fold. Don’t allow others to push your buttons and use guilt trips to go beyond your means. They’re not the one who will deal with the consequences.
Remind yourself that you’re doing the best you can. And right now, that’s good enough. You have a budget, you’ve made a plan, now stick to it. Others closer to home, are depending on you. The people who truly care about you, won’t push you into doing something you don’t want to do. Those that will try emotional manipulation, aren’t interested in you, they’re interested in what they get out of deal. Some only care to appear more important than they actually are.
Be cautious of those who offer aid. Make sure they’re not asking for something you don’t want to give in return. Not everyone has your best interests at heart. So watch out for the thorns that may come along with an unexpected gift. You don’t need to compromise your values, morals or beliefs. Nor should you fall for the attempts to shame you into reciprocating.
This is a time of great charity and there are those who honestly want to share their fortune with those around them. Don’t be too proud when a gift is offered. You deserve blessings given in true kindness with no strings attached. Allow those who feel the compassion of the season to be generous in their own way. Even if it’s the only time of the year they do so. At least they’re making an effort.
Trust your instincts and allow yourself to feel the blessings and kindness around you. Just keep a bit of that skepticism handy. You know who you can trust and who makes you feel creepy. Sometimes it’s those closest to you who have the ulterior motives. So watch for those trying to control your day or alter your path forward. Those are the people you can walk away from and hold onto your self-respect.
