People experience more stress, anxiety, and depression over the holidays than any other time of year. It’s so common that the term “Holiday stress” has been coined to describe the way that people feel around the holidays, and I have seen this first hand when I was growing up.

It was my knowledge of a key financial independence concept known as F-You Money that gave me the confidence to move forward.
