Inspired by the work of author Ron Gallen’s, The Money Trap, we have been addressing the concepts and warning signs of common money disorders. Gallen suggests that:
“All money disorders have at their core the same thing: something missing in the emotional and spiritual realm. An imbalance that is ever trying to right itself. These disorders are an attempt, even if guided by an illusion, at emotional self-medication. Money is perceived as a sort of all-purpose replacement for what is missing (p. 55). What is observed in all this is the saddest part of all-that money is not what our soul is longing for to begin with-it’s the things that money represents to us that we truly long for. Things such as: love, security, connections, validation, and faith” (p. 62).
The money disorders that we addressed were not meant to bring shame or embrassment but to challenge the way in which we perceive and handle money in our daily activities.
