Society has gotten it twisted. No one is born being "good with money." It's a skill you have to learn, just like you learn to drive a car or tie your shoes. So don't be hard on yourself if your financial situation isn't ideal. Instead, make a commitment to invest in your financial literacy. Future You depends on it."
