It is not easy to see what areas of your financial life can use improvement. One of the best tactics is to set some boundaries, so as to gain back more control. Entrepreneur Network partner Brittney Castro recommends setting some boundaries for yourself if you are feeling drained by your financial life.

An important step is knowing when to turn people down and say no when carving out your financial goals. Whether it is a friend who is always asking for your help to cover her or a family member who always wants to know about your financial state, you can choose to turn down requests and live your own life.

Moreover, consider walking away from bad money decisions if they are making you unhappy. Castro stresses you have autonomy over your choices, and it's all right to choose a different path and create a fresh money life for yourself.
