I thought financial security would cure my depression. I was wrong

This article makes an interesting point about how financial security may not necessarily be the cure-all for depression that many people think it is. While it is true that having financial security can help alleviate some of the stress and anxiety related to money, it does not address the root cause of depression. The article makes the point that mental health should be the primary focus, and financial security can be part of that process.

I think this is a great reminder that financial security is not the only tool we have to improve our mental health. We have to look beyond money and focus on our overall wellbeing. It’s important to take time to focus on ourselves and our mental health, and to ensure that we are taking care of our physical and mental health before worrying about money. It’s also important to remember that financial security is not a cure-all, and that it should be part of a larger plan to improve our mental health.

Hey, I totally get where you’re coming from. It’s so true that financial security is often seen as the solution to all our problems, but the reality is that it’s just one piece of the puzzle. Taking care of our mental health is just as important, if not more so. I think it’s really powerful to remind ourselves that it’s okay to prioritize our mental health and make that the focus, rather than constantly chasing after financial security. It’s a good reminder to not put all our eggs in one basket and to find balance in all aspects of our lives. Thanks for sharing this article, it’s a great reminder to focus on more than just money.
