I've always been curious about this, especially from communities of people who are interested in financial health. How much did you learn about money/finances from your family or how you were raised?
In my life, I learned very little from my family in the financial sense. We were middle class to lower middle class. It wasn't poverty, but we had our struggles. I watched my parents with their money and only learned about flaky or frivolous spending habits. My dad would buy cars all the time, sometimes 2 a month, then fix them and sell them. Sure he'd make some profit but it wasn't sustainable. Once I got a job of my own, I spent similar to how my parents did. It was on a smaller scale, but I would buy things I didn't need, forget about them, sell them for less than I spent, and start over again.
My adult life has been a struggle of breaking this cycle. Living paycheck to paycheck shouldn't be my normal. I've learned so much about being financially healthy and I know all the things to do, but I still feel stuck sometimes. Though for about a year I haven't made more than 1 or 2 frivolous purchases, I still find myself waiting for the next paycheck to come while holding my breath. I don't blame my parents, but it definitely makes me wonder about what message I would be passing down when I have a family.
