“It’s a per­sonal choice whether you talk to friends and fam­ily about your fi­nan­cial con­cerns,” Hart­nett says. “If you do, it’s im­por­tant you share them with friends and fam­ily who have knowl­edge in that area so the ad­vice is help­ful and not harm­ful.”

If you’re after ob­jec­tive ad­vice, there’s plenty out there, Hart­nett adds: “There’s in­de­pen­dent in­for­ma­tion on­line that can be a good start­ing point and speak­ing to a fi­nan­cial coun­sel­lor is free. For emo­tional sup­port, though, hav­ing a strong so­cial net­work and a sup­port­ive fam­ily is in­valu­able.”
