Here’s what we wanted to share with you this week.

The Price of Security. [J L Collins] — “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” – Helen Keller (Submitted by J. Money.)

Making Plans to Make Your Pensions Profitable After Retirment. [Enemy of Debt] — “Are you looking forward to the day of your retirement? Some people cannot wait for retirement, while others are still apprehensive for various reasons. Retirement means differently to people, but there is one thing you should do. You should review your pension regularly to ensure it is on track to give you the income you want.” (Submitted by Tarsha.)

How to Prepare for a Recession Like a Financial Expert. [Her First $100K] — “How do you even begin to prepare for a recession in a way that actually makes a difference, rather than just shooting in the dark? We gathered insight from some of our favorite, most trusted financial creators.” (Submitted by Harlan.)

How to keep money from tearing your friendships apart. [Vox] — “Money discrepancies among friends can dredge up some uncomfortable emotions, including guilt and shame around suggesting lower-cost alternatives, or frustration if you feel like you’re constantly needing to make cheaper but less exciting plans. These emotions tend to arise when you aren’t transparent with your financial expectations.” (Submitted J. D. Roth).

When I Watch The Bear, I See My Life [Esquire] – “And then he stares at the camera with sad blue eyes and says something unexpected. “I felt like I could speak through the food, communicate through creativity… The deeper into this I went and the better I got, and the more people I cut out, the quieter my life got. And the routine of the kitchen was so consistent and exacting and busy and hard and alive and I lost track of time and he died.” I stopped and rewound and watched it again. And again. This was my life. My everything.” (Submitted Jim Wang).
