Money can be a source of conflict in almost any relationship, whether with your family, friends, or your girl or boyfriend.
Whether you have it or you don't, money can stir a wide range of emotions but it's important not to confuse an emotional issue with a financial one (or vice versa).
Discussing money with your parents can be difficult. Remember to stay calm and express yourself as clearly as possible.
Making compromises is key to any relationship, especially when it comes to money.
Money can make you feel happy, sad, powerful, proud, and both in and out of control, but your money doesn't determine who you are.
