Why am I hiding from perfect strangers???

October 29th, 2008 at 07:23 pm

I erased all of my entries because I was afraid one of the millions of anonymous readers would recognize me through my blog. Umm, ok. I have officially lost my mind!

Why am I having such a hard time putting my financial goals and concerns in writing, where others might see them?

I have been on my own for a year now. I don't have credit card debt, but I don't have much in savings, either. I guess I'm shy about how far I still have to go financially. I mean, I'm 32 years old and I only have $1100 in the bank? That's embarassing. Yet I have to start somewhere.

I spent the last 9 years basically getting my education, managing our house and raising my kids, not making money.

I have looked out for myself, though. Even though I didn't make much money these past 10 years, I made contributions to our family. I do have half of a house, and half of my ex's military retirement, should he choose to retire in 4 years. So I'm not totally starting from scratch, it just looks that way in my checking account!

I need to stop censoring my entries and just come clean. It's like lying to your doctor- you're not going to get better if you don't fess up!
