Why can't I stop worrying about money?
    #2859316 - 07/05/04 06:26 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

My dilemma is one that is probably kind of pathetic, but I can't stop worrying about money, and money really isnt even that much of a concern for me! My parents have money stashed away for my college, I already have a car, and I have almost no expenses. I currently have no job, but I have a reasonable sum of money sitting in my bank account. But for some reason, I always worry about money. I'll pass on buying Taco Bell when we all go out to eat. I'll be the naysayer on going out and doing something just because I don't want to spend the money. I'm SO CHEAP and I can't stop doing it! SO many of my friends are flat broke all the time and still are willing to spend money before I am.

And often, I sit and think about purchases I made and just WORRY about them, when there is NOTHING I can do about it. They werent even terrible purchases, just purchases. Like for instance, I recently (last year) got into the sport of Airsoft (maybe you've heard of it). I spent like 800 bucks on my whole setup, and I LOVE Airsoft. But for some reason I always just think about how much I spent and it bothers me. And I think about how much I spent on my turntables and records. And I think about purchases right after I make them.

I spend like 40 bucks on a roadtrip/fireworks run yesterday, and now I just keep thinking "you spent 30 bucks on shit that you lit on fire?" THIRTY BUCKS! That's not a lot of money and yet here I am pondering over it, posting about it. 30 bucks. And say I have nothing to do, and I want a game. I'll sit there and mull it over so long that I just can't even bear the idea of buying a game. My friends want to all chip in on a 1/4? They're going to have to pry it from my dead fingers. And I don't want to be this way. It's just the way I think.

Why is money so hard to let go of for me? Does anyone else have this problem? Am I just cheap? Is that it? Am I going to have to just get over this, or be beaten senseless with money until I hate it? I can't possibly believe other people worry about 30 dollars of fireworks. I can see large purchases (cars, houses, stuff like that), but I really take it too far and it really messes up my mood sometimes. Any advice? Words of wisdom? Insults? Lay it on me.

I don't know what to say except money is meant to be spent. You're buying things like turntables and fireworks and getting personal enjoyment from using them. I go through money like I go through water but it doesn't bother me too much. Of course I wish I had more money. I'd like to start saving money but at this point I 'm making it as fast as I'm spending it. Just relax and be glad you have some money. Or better yet get a job and you'll have more money and maybe then you'll feel less guilty about spending it.

I can't relate to that attitude. I love to spend my money on things for my own enjoyment. Why else bother earning any if you aren't going to enjoy it? It certainly doesn't make you any happier sitting in your wallet or bank account. I am never afraid to part with my money. In fact, I find it quite pleasurable. And I never think about it after it is gone.

That is the attitude that I want to have about my money, but for some reason I just can't get myself to think that way. Maybe I feel guilty buying things without a job? I don't know..

I think you're right. I used to be really cheap but as soon as I got a decent paying job I started spending money like no other.

It's a security thing. money buys choices and options when things
go pear shaped. need surgery? you can get the best. crash the
car? u got insurance. etc etc. parting with it eats away at your
safety blanket.

OLD fucking thread. Fucking necromancers...

Anyway, this post summed it up. I figured that out a while ago and I'm feeling much better, thanks.
