    Time, happiness and money are all forms of limited resources we have. Dont borrow too heavily from one to get the other. 3 months doesnt sound like a huge chunk of time to me but it seems you may have been pushing it hard already for quite a while. I think Mezla was right when she said in a previous post you have to live for the now too. Thats the balance that I worry about often.

    Discuss it with your partner, if you disagree about it I would say thats the first red flag. If you both agree to the hardship it will place on your relationship that mutual agreement at least should partly help you discuss your way though it.

    I would not qualify happiness as a resource you can dip into or temporarily decrease to achieve something else.

    It is fleeting - you have it when you have it and when you lose it, there’s often no clear way back to that “same level” of happiness, certainly not just by reverting to the previous situation. Mind you, it’s definitely easier without children being part of the equation.

    Finally, money/debt is more than a figure on a page. There’s a range of emotions attached and from personal experience, I can tell you that not knowing what it represents to the other can create huge discomfort between you.
    To some, having money is an opportunity for growth (studying, opening a business) or for the future (retirement, children’s study budget), for others it’s a feeling of success or being able to expand their lifestyle (travelling, fine dining, branded clothes, starting a family) and for yet others it represents safety ( whatever happens, we’ll be fine for a year, supporting parents/family).
    Not having it has a similar range of feelings, some of which could be contradictory as well.

    We had to up our mortgage recently, courtesy of the extended renovation of the property we bought.
    Once we can finally move in, we ought to be fine, but I dread every single header featuring the ECB decision-making.

    Urgh. Saquon out, 2 RBs on bye, the Steelers offense only being offensively bad, Jalen Hurts a shadow of last season, Richardson out injured mid game… hello 0-5. I’ve been looking forward to Kupp’s return, but at this rate it’s a plaster over a gaping wound.
