So I speak with people often that have suffered huge financial losses due to a myriad of reasons from reckless spending to natural causes that are in some ways no fault of their own. When this happens it's oftentimes a traumatic experience without them realizing it. Financially traumatic scenarios can lead to what I call a permanent financial disability. This is a total lack of trust in one's self to handling certain financial responsibilities properly. This plays out in a million ways in their lives because money is connected to just about everything we do today. All confidence is lost and worst yet is the loss of their faith in GOD. Because financial loss/mistakes happen to everyone we must learn to forgive ourselves, then ask GOD to forgive us because it was His money too that was lost. This is not easy to do because financial mistakes can be long-lasting and very difficult to recover from. But in order to reclaim your life, time, and confidence you must first start with forgiving yourself for past money mistakes. Get all the help you can get to build your confidence back up and move forward in GOD.
