"Fine. Whatever you want."
"Why won't you talk to me about this?" "Because you always yell at me."
"Why did you spend that money? It was for bills." "I didn't know, you never told me that!"
Have those words come out of your mouth? Have you quit talking about money (and probably other things as well) to keep the peace? Do you pretend that things are fine but really, you and your partner are not on the same page about money and it stresses you out? Has the lack of communication lead to stress in other areas of your marriage?
"All of the bills are paid but there isn't any money left over for groceries."
"We are going to have to use the credit card again for Christmas gifts."
"We can't afford to do anything fun."
"I make good money but I don't have anything leftover at the end of the month to put into savings or to cover something unexpected."
"I'll never be able to...."
You feel you make good money but you aren't sure exactly where it all goes, am I right?! You don't necessarily fight with your partner but you don't agree on how to spend money either. You've become overwhelmed with the thought of trying to budget or have a conversation.
Those are some of the same things James and I have said to each other and what many of my clients experienced when they came to me.
"What do you think we should focus on this month?"
"What are your priorities for this month's checks?"
"How do you feel about putting some money towards a family vacation and the rest of the unbudgeted money towards our peace of mind fund?"
"Thank you for your input. It means a lot to me to plan this out with you."
"I am so excited to get this debt paid off!"
"We are able to pay cash for our car!"
"I never thought we would be able to save this much money and still live life comfortably. Thank you!"
Those are the words that are spoken after working with me. Communication is so much better and that leads to less fighting, less stress, less giving up. And more laughs, more progress, more intimacy, more fun! When you are ready to communicate better, feel a sense of security, feel hope building, and grow, reach out.
