Reasons to say goodbye to the past

Of course, it is impossible to single out any reasons that are relevant for everyone. But there are many typical and similar situations in which people simply need to start over.


One of the most common reasons is the divorce of a married couple, separation after a long relationship. Most people who find themselves in a similar situation quite logically wonder how to live further. Most likely, life will have to start again:

  • reconsider the usual household way of life or build a life completely from scratch
  • getting used to a new marital situation
  • learn to live independently, without a partner

It is generally accepted that when parting, it is doubly difficult for those who were abandoned. This means that they will have to work twice as hard to figure out how to start a new life after a divorce.

Death of a loved one

Another reason is the death of a loved one. In such a situation, before starting a new life and changing oneself, a bereaved person needs to cope with a difficult state of mind, overcome depression and stress . After all, such psychological traumas are characterized by a state of apathy and constant fatigue, and building a new way of life requires a large amount of energy and vitality.

How to start a new life.


Surely, each of us has thought more than once in our lives about starting our lives anew, with a clean slate, on Monday, right tomorrow... But if millions think about this, then thousands begin to do something, but only dozens achieve results . Why? The main reason is laziness. It is justified in different ways, but this does not stop laziness from being laziness.

We need to start a new life. From Monday. Why from Monday? Most likely, because today is Friday (or rather, already Saturday), I am sitting in a very drunk state and feeling sorry for myself to the point of tears. Tomorrow (or rather today) it will be very bad, and you will have to “get treatment.” Of course, to relieve headaches caused by alcohol, I will use alcohol. And this means that on Sunday I will sit and stare at the box, trying to get back to some kind of normality so that on Monday I can be a cucumber and go to work. That's when I'll start a new life! And on Monday, if I remember my idea at all, I promise myself that it will be next Monday, because today there is absolutely no time. And if suddenly next Monday I am in normal condition and ready for a new life, then the question will immediately arise - so, what should I do? I don’t know... I always wanted a different life, but I didn’t really think about what its fundamental difference was from the old life. Having a lot of money and an expensive car, I remember that, but what to do for it? Oh, okay... It won’t work anyway.”

I'm fat... Yes, that's exactly my problem. Young people don't want to date me because I'm fat. All! You need to lose weight and everything will be fine. So, now I’ll find the nearest fitness center and work on myself. This one is what you need. It’s only a five-minute walk from home, and a nine-month subscription is thirty percent off! Oh, what is this? After yesterday's workout, I can't reach my alarm clock to turn it off. Everything hurts... You can lose weight without such hellish workouts. I will eat less, and after six I will not eat at all. How can you not eat on Saturday evening? I have a stomach ache. Why mock yourself? By the way, my friends told me about a diet where you can eat whatever you want, but at the same time drink green coffee to lose weight. This is it for me! Somehow, in three months, this coffee didn’t help me at all... So it’s not for me. They also advertise goji berries for weight loss...”

However, besides laziness, there is another reason why good intentions remain just intentions - the lack of a system. We are not taught in school how to change our lives. They don't give you a textbook or assign homework. Someone can then reach all this on their own, while the rest will only try to feel their way in the dark, after which they will return to where everything is already familiar.

So, the reasons that prompt us to break out of the boring circle of everyday life are different for everyone. But there will always be another person who had the same problems as you. Lack of money, bad job, unpleasant environment, abandonment by your significant other, lack of purpose in life... The older a person is, the more difficult it is to break out of the usual way of life. And yet, we are surrounded by examples of people giving up everything and reaching new heights, becoming examples for thousands of others. When you read the autobiographies of such people, you catch yourself thinking that I could not do this. That's why they reach the pedestal, because they are willing to sacrifice and take risks where others retreat. We must always remember this.

Section for parents: 3 tips on how to help children earn money

As you have already noticed, most of the listed ways to earn money require help or assistance from parents. It will largely depend on you whether your son (daughter) wants to develop further or abandon the business he has started.

Before reading the tips themselves, I recommend watching the video “Children and Money.” There is a younger child involved, but I think that his mother’s approach can become a role model for parents of older children.

Many parents do not notice how they are strangling their child’s initiative in making money. They buy a bunch of gifts without asking for anything in return. “God forbid that the child gets little rest in the summer and overworks herself!” - think caring mothers and fathers. As a result, the child grows up infantile and waits for those around him to solve his problems. At 30-35 years old, he is not yet able to provide for his family, children, or even himself.

Even at an early age, it is useful for a person to instill smart thoughts:

  • money does not appear out of thin air;
  • a person is responsible for his own life;
  • One who does not depend on other people feels worthy.

The sooner a child starts earning money, the sooner he will begin to appreciate the work of others, including his mother’s and father’s. He will learn to take initiative, think creatively, negotiate with different people and be independent.

The skills acquired at the age of 8-11 will help you achieve success in adulthood:

  • build a career;
  • provide for the family;
  • gain financial independence;
  • have authority in society.

Encourage any desire of your child to earn money. Help us look for areas that not only bring in income, but also arouse interest. Praise the young worker for his first financial successes. At the same time, do not force him to do monotonous work, from which he becomes despondent.

How can a schoolchild earn money at such a young age? In theory, there are a lot of options, but not all of them are suitable for a child. For example, you should not force small children to do heavy physical labor: carrying bags of groceries, clearing snow. Such work will only harm your health.

Tip 1. Become a role model

Parental authority is extremely important for a child. If he respects you, he will easily listen to advice and strive to adopt good habits (including financial ones). Therefore, strive to learn something new and earn money.

Your authority will definitely fall if you start doing the following things towards your child:

  • regularly criticize, point out mistakes;
  • use blackmail;
  • overindulge;
  • control every step.

Don't act lazy in front of children. If a child sees you lying on the sofa and watching TV for half a day, he is unlikely to want to earn pocket money through hard work.

Tip 2. Set the right goals

Such things as “financial independence”, “economic crisis” and “prospects” are still incomprehensible to a child’s mind. If you start loading the younger generation with them, you will completely discourage the desire to make money.

To increase motivation, formulate more mundane goals:

  • the opportunity to save up for a toy, phone, tablet;
  • complete freedom to manage your earned money;
  • mastering a new hobby.

At first, the child will work only for monetary results. And only after some time (for example, a year) will he understand that he enjoys the process itself.

Tip 3. Organize the receipt of money

This advice is rather technical. When working on the Internet, money usually goes to the performer’s electronic wallet. But only identified users of the payment system can withdraw funds. Legal identification is available from the age of 14. Therefore, create a wallet in your name and provide payment details on the earning sites where your child works. Cash out and give the young worker your honestly earned money.

In real life, neighbors and acquaintances will pay the children. Make sure your child does not associate with dubious individuals.
