As a way of coping, we have a tendency, usually unconscious, to project our fears on something or someone else in order to not feel as triggered. For instance, you might see someone who reminds you of someone you've had a negative experience with and place all those feelings on this perfect stranger. We do this with money as well. We can project our anxiety, frustration, anger, resentment all at money's doorstep. That doesn't really make money feel wanted so our work will be to deep clean our money mindset and beliefs so we can actually see money as a friend, and not an enemy.
