Motivational Monday | Struggling as an Adult

Before I start on writing for my beauty blog entries, I've figured I needed to write something for myself here. 

Throughout the past 6 months, I've been struggling so much to NOT spend on my hobbies (I'm not going to discuss here) because I know the money needed to be spent on essentials like food and other stuffs to survive COVID-19 for another 6 months like face masks, house-cleaning products, etc.

But that's just the thing. Knowing isn't the same as putting things in action. I know I needed to save the money but my shopaholic brain just can't stop being spoiled especially when I didn't need to pay my investment fund loan for 6 months. I know, I'm bad. Financially bad.

My typical Asian parents would be judging but who can blame them? I surely won't as I know it's a mistake and me, writing in here, admitting the mistake, sincerely trying to make sense of my actions and justifying my decisions but I know and I'm tired of making excuses so yes. I'm sorry, my bank account. 

I guess what I can do is try my best to make more money, right? Not an invitation to MLM, etc.

What about you guys? I have been a legally working adult for merely 5 years but I'm still struggling with managing myself financially. I'm properly paying my bills, my Grab PayLater Postpaid, Netflix subscription but any tips to control the urge to spend especially with the coming payday? Hit me up down below in the comment section.
