Ever spend money on something, regret it, then try to make the best of a situation because you already spent the money on it?
It’s called the sunk-cost fallacy.
Since you already made an investment, you’re going to keep investing yourself into it because you hate to see your money go to waste. This idea can also be extrapolated to projects, relationships or just about anything requiring an investment of yourself.
We really have a hard time letting go and will use any justification necessary.
Unfortunately, this only causes more headache, heartache, anxiety and a whole lot of stress you’re not even aware you’re holding on to.
The money (or energy) is already spent, don’t let it take your time as well.
Money can be replenished… time you can never get back.
