The great Dutch Jewish philosopher Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) once said: “Freedom is defined as acting out of the necessity of one’s own nature.” In other words, you are free when your action is not produced by external causes. You are free when you are not passive but active.

If the debt load on your shoulders is your own created, you can be free of debt on your free will just like you might be in debt on your free will. You may be a slave of your own emotions in which case you ought to get your debt out of bondage.

But very often emotions need to be controlled!

Emotions cause us to shop endlessly until our feet give in and refuse to walk any longer. They stop us from making conscientious decisions about spending and not saving enough.

They cause us to stay in relationships with debt that damage us, because we’re still emotionally addicted to borrowing money and use credit cards recklessly.

Emotions about borrowing are just things that happen, and which you can and should control. It sounds easy but you know what? It is easy to control your emotions and stop buying on impulse.

The best way to let go of your troublesome emotions about reckless spending, the emotions that are holding us back from happiness and freedom from debt, is to discover the art of releasing.

What is releasing?

Releasing is the ability to realize that you are desperately holding onto emotions in your life. Only then you can release yourself from debt. Releasing is about realizing you can let go of your emotions of spending habits. That means you unclench your fist around them, just by making simple decisions in your personal finances.

How to start Releasing yourself from debt?

One of the simplest method is just to go through your financial life, recognizing where emotions of reckless spending are holding you up. Sometimes there is a psychological reason why you do the things you do.

You may not be satisfied in handling your personal finances. It just so happens that you are angry at work, at home or with someone else. In order to release the anger and the dissatisfaction in your life, you go out on a shopping spree.

As long as you have those emotions left in you, you would repeat the same habits over and over. Bring that issue or situation to the forefront of your mind. Connect with your emotions.

If you can let go your emotions about reckless spending, not saving enough or rather getting into debt every step of the way, then start working on it. Break the habit of free financial living especially when you can’t even afford it.

In a Nutshell
If your debt-laden financial life has not been due to external forces, like losing job because of the economy, then your negative emotions may have accumulated over the years.

By releasing these negative emotions, you will not only enjoy much more freedom in your financial life but you will also become more emotionally stable and less stressed.
