What Penny Pinching Can Teach You About Breakups

By Dr. George Karanastasis

Penny Pinching and Breakups“In less than three years, Carrie Rocha and her husband, Marco, paid off $50,000 of nonmortgage debt and accumulated a six-month emergency fund and other savings by clipping coupons, buying store brands and reducing unnecessary expenses.” - Source: Yahoo.com

Amazing, isn’t? Not only did this couple get out of (significant) debt, they managed to pad their savings account in the process. Few people would have the courage and will-power to achieve such a feat.

So what can you take away from this? Two things actually…

1. Small things add up… and over time they lead to BIG RESULTS. The same goes for breakups. Whether you’re trying to get your ex girlfriend back or just get over her, little changes can (and will) have a big impact on the eventual outcome. For example…

a) Start exercising if you don’t already. And if you do, push yourself a little harder. Not only will you feel better mentally (exercise releases mood-elevating chemicals in the brain known as endorphins) but look better as well. Both results play a big role in getting past this as fast as possible.

b) Get a new hobby. It will take you mind off your ex and make you a more well-rounded person (not to mention you’ll have plenty of fun).

c) Do something out of the ordinary (e.g. talk to a perfect stranger walking down the street. You never know what sort of relationship it can lead to - and how it will ultimately better your life).

As for the second take-away…

2. There’s a silver lining in every cloud. This couple has found theirs. Overcoming their ordeal has left them with much more than money: the confidence of knowing they can handle the hardships life throws their way… and come out ahead in the process.

The same is true for breakups. Sure, it’s a bad spot to be in. But depending on how you look at things… it can be the end of something good, or the chance to start something better. The choice is up to you.

    Hey Dr. K. I recently went into RC with my ex after 3 + months and I did some soul searching during this time which led to the conclusion that I should call her. She cheated on me and I have started to let it go as a mistake (in my mind that is without letting her know i feel like this)and try to get to know her through RC. I started talking with her since monday of last week and she has already told me that she is having problems with him like he is too attached to her and he sweats the small things way to much and that he is not close to his family. I indirectly let her know that with me these things never happened and I agreed with her when she was telling me about her problems with him. She was always attached to me in our relationship and I fall into the category of not giving her enough attention. I tried to meet with her last week and it never happended cuz she postponed it. Then now this week she wants to postpone this meeting again all the way till next monday or any day next week she says. Im curious? is this meeting taking to long and if so what should I do? SHould I even talk to her this week before the supposed meeting takes place? cuz the longer I talk to her on the phone the worse it can get without meeting her first right?

    Dear Dr. K

    I applied for the repair board one month for free, but I am afraid that due to the economy I will not have the funds to pay for an extra month! I can barely get by pay my bills right now! Please answer my question or someone else. I promise I won’t ask again, I just really need some advice right now… Thank you
