Part 1The earliest memories I have of money is that when I was still little and our family wasnot well-off. I remember my father leaving the country and going abroad to Qatar to support thefamily. I did not understand this at first, but when I grew older, I knew that he sacrificed beingwith the family in exchange for more money. I would associate the word money with securitybecause having money and not having to worry about finances is a good feeling of sense ofsecurity. Like I am always safe and that if an emergency happens, I will be fine because ofmoney. Just being secure in life is a very good feeling and I can just enjoy it without having toworry about anything.Part 2Back when I was still little and my family was not well-off, I would say that the financescontrolled us. I still remember not being able to buy candies and games I wanted to play on thePS1 because my mother did not have enough money to buy it. I was exposed early on that Icould not just buy whatever I want and learned the importance of money. My father made adecision that controlled him because of money, he moved to a different country for better pay.
