There is a kind of debt that is rarely talked about.
That’s emotional debt.
I cannot leave this job, because I had promised my boss I would stay.
I cannot leave this job, because I have dreams to fulfil for my family.
I cannot go back to work, because I had promised my kids I would be around.
Emotional debt is intangible. It doesn’t exist.
And because we don’t pay for it everyday, we keep on accumulating interest on it.
Here is what helps.
Treating emotional debt as financial debt.
Take it only when you need it.
Take it only when you can pay it back.
And pay it in monthly instalments.
Emotional debt has killed more people than financial debt ever will.
