Now that I’m finally taking responsibility for my finances like an adult I have had a realisation. I can’t afford to have much fun. Fun is a luxury, it’s not a requirement, and fun is different for everyone. So I can have fun but not to the degree that I’d like, and that’s my punishment for my financial behaviour.

I don’t need to spend money to have fun but it helps me do more things that involve other people more than anything else. Being broke is lonely as you have to stay in more and you have to miss out on events and days out. It’s hard emotionally as well as you have to say no…
