Positive Change from Attitude of Poverty

Daily writing prompt
Describe one positive change you have made in your life.

One positive change that my husband helped me with was letting go of my attitude of poverty.

When he met me, I was a single parent of a 17-year-old. We had been on our own since my son was 3. It was a really long, hard road and my son and I had been through so much. I was so used to surviving that I didn’t really know what “living” was about.

Everything I bought was the cheapest. I had to save every penny I could. I never splurged on anything! Everything was about survival for me and my son.

My husband came into my life and taught me how to treat myself. He convinced me that I did indeed deserve good things. He helped me to break out of my poverty mentality and learn to live a little. I’m so thankful that I didn’t waste my whole life in survival mode.


I want to hear what you think!
