One Comment on “The Emotional Charge of Money and Currencies of Worth”

  1. This article seems to imply that money is a major influence on one’s self worth. In my view, self-worth begins to be formed long before a child has any awareness of money, and is probably solidified before the first paying job of mowing or babysitting.
    However, many things impact self-worth later in life. Money can be one of those. I believe that the majority of people in adulthood struggle with low self-worth and seek many different avenues to boost it. But they are all “grasping at straws.” True worth is already inside each of us and we demonstrate it by our behaviors.
    Caring for others is one of those positive behaviors that can actually help a person value themselves. The money it provides should not stimulate any emotion other than perhaps anxiety or happiness.
