If you’re a regular reader of personal finance and self development blogs, you’ve probably read about someone’s mistakes. I’ve made some big mistakes  myself in the past, but part of maturity is learning from them and taking proactive steps to correct them as soon as possible.
I received this email from Jill:
Help! I’ve been guilty of overspending in the past and I’m really struggling with it. My weakness is shoes and clothes, but last month I bought myself a new electronic gizmo even though I didn’t need it at all! I feel like I made a mistake and I guess I’m experiencing buyer’s remorse. How do I get rid of this guilt? –Jill
Well Jill, first of all, you need to forgive yourself and decide to move on. Learning to forgive ourselves is very difficult, but what’s done is done. All you can do is make certain to not let it happen again.
