Survey: WOMEN DON'T DISCUSS FINANCIAL STRESS WITH ANYONE
A survey of 1,000 women found, 36 percent of women don't discuss the financial stress they feel with anyone. Bottling up your troubles can make the problem worse. "Most people feel a huge sense of relief after sharing their circumstances with someone," says Brad Klontz, PsyD, a financial psychologist and coauthor of Mind Over Money. Confide in one or more of these people:
A close friend
It can be awkward to talk about money, but it gets easier. "It becomes a two-way conversation," says Jean Chatzky, a personal-finance expert and author of Age Proof: Living Longer Without Running Out of Money or Breaking a Hip. "What you find is that their situation isn't perfect, either."
A money buddy
An accountability partner keeps you focused and motivated.
