As for the feeling of security, I go through the same thing. I want
to feel secure enough to relax a bit, but wisps of worry always
linger softly. What will it take? I betcha if I had double what I
have, I’m sure I’d still worry about the “what ifs”. “What if I get
cancer and I lose my house and savings?” I’m in better financial
shape than most of the other gals I work with, yet they don’t seem
to worry like I do.
I do feel happy and secure to a certain extent, and maybe the “what
ifs” keep me disciplined. Maybe I’m just being smart.

incredibly frugal years ago – EVERY penny spent would be thought
through, and I would work on finding ways to save on everything….

said to myself, if I save X dollars in the bank, I will feel secure
and can relax a bit….
> The good news is that I reached that $X goal….the bad news is
that feeling of security never came with it. *sigh*
> I think I need to start setting myself up with some new goals, and
a plan to reach them.
