Bagi pinjam vs sedekah

I literally just received a Whatsapp message. Someone wants to borrow me money. I don't know how much, because I have not opened the message yet. And frankly, I'm trying my best to avoid opening the message. Out of sight, out of mind kind of thing. I hate, dislike, when people borrow my money. My whole body just tenses up. I don't like it at all. I don't know why. I could probably just dump it all on my dad because he likes to borrow money and be in debt. Or my mom, tak habis-habis bagi orang pinjam duit. Or I don't like the feeling of being used. Or parting with the money, because, I don't expect people to pay me back. If I want to lend people money, I have to be mentally prepared to not get it back. I have to be okay to not get it back. Because seriously, if you had money, would you borrow? I mean, I don't know. If it's business-wise, I probably wouldn't mind. If it's not something that I know happens repeatedly, I probably won't mind? I don't know. I just don't fucking like it. I think it's most likely the feeling of being used.

Limited income

Money management

Initially, I didn't think I wanted to journal this early in the morning, but I did my Monday Hour One and my head's functioning pretty well now. So there is something I want to talk about. I have money management issues. I do. I tend to end use up whatever money that I intend to put aside. The Cyberjaya house rental deposits, Figment's remaining investment money, ASB moratorium money, and others. I know and am well aware of the concept to put aside money and don't touch it, but I somehow have not been successful at refraining myself. And the worst part is, I don't realise that I am using that money. And I feel bad. I also feel lost. I don't know how to encounter it. I want to encounter it. But there's this

Where the fuck is my money

I didn't journal this morning. I watched Jim Kwik's MindValley masterclass intro video, then the kids got up. But now that I'm wide awake, I want t

Don’t skip journaling

I'm alone in the office. I didn't get the chance to journal in the morning because I was getting ready for BNI meeting, having breakfast and all that.

I remember thinking something yesterday night. Let me recall. Oh I think it's about how I determine my salary by my value. By the value I provide? Som

Workplace self-worth

Hello. Oh yeah I have stuff to talk about. Just a while ago I was wondering that to write. So yesterday I had 2 new client prospects, both from BNI. One wants to do a personal branding and another wants to do branding for his restaurant. While I'm glad for both this opportunities, I am also worried.
