Today I celebrate a happy day. Today my student loans are in the single digits!
I used to read about people with $10,000 worth of student loans and get so jealous. Even now I almost can’t believe that in 11 months, I will be debt free.
Even though I am getting closer to my goal, I’m still learning more about my relationship with money. I’m a perfectionist and it’s easy to get discouraged when you want your finances to be perfect.
Even when I pay off my loans, I will still worry about money. Am I saving enough, when will I be able to buy a house, can I afford to move somewhere else. Just because I won’t owe any money to Sallie Mae doesn’t mean I will feel financially secure.
I’m a worrier and I will probably always be a worrier. But just as I’m chipping away at my loans, one dollar at a time, I need to chip away at my emotional issues with money.
