12 Ways Being ‘Nice’ Is Costing You Money
Money may seem like a straightforward topic, but it so rarely is.
As much as we think we’re making financial decisions based purely off of numbers, our decision process is more often than not overlaid with emotional drivers.
And one of the sneakiest emotional drivers of them all is being too “nice” with our money.
It doesn’t always pay to be nice
People who are considered too “nice” for their own good are often categorized as people pleasers. And there is certainly some truth to that.
According to Dr. Helen Odessky, you can tell if you’re people pleasing if you agree to something because you would feel bad, guilty, or as though you’re not a good friend if you say no.
But people pleasers aren’t the only ones who might be a little too nice when it comes to their money.
Dr. Susan Chanderbhan-Forde talks about how being too nice can happen when you have “difficulty with setting boundaries in your relationships.”
Think about family members who might ask you for money. Even if you aren’t a people pleaser, you might feel required to lend that money because of a lack of clear boundaries.
