Extravagant trips, closets stuffed to the ceiling with couture, limitless credit–it’s hard to fathom leaving the highly addictive world of Sugar. Though for some of us, a peak is reached, the party is over, and it’s time to go sugar-free.
Here are a few considerations before swimming out of the Sugar bowl:
We suggest strengthening the bridges you’ve built, not burning them! When it comes to saying goodbye to your Sugar Daddies/Mommies, remember its not a break up with that person, but with the lifestyle they’ve helped give you.
Just because you are giving back the credit card, doesn’t mean you have to give up the mentorship or networking knowledge that has developed along the way.
You Are Gonna Need This. Unless you are a CEO or business owner with a fabulous residual income, you’re going to need a job when that allowance stops being deposited. You probably have shoes in your closet that cost as much as a single paycheck, so cutbacks to your spending is key.
Learn to budget necessities first such as bills, food, gas, etc and then put aside a certain “spending” amount for when a shopping craving comes on strong. Your financial choices, much like a diet, should be essentially organic, not overly indulgent.
We can’t hide our past. You were a Sugar Baby. Yes, delete your sugar-related social media accounts, deactivate your profile, seal that chapter away, but don’t pretend your experience never happened. You’ve made great memories, dined at the finest restaurants and looked darn good doing it!
Whether you start dating someone serious, make new friends, or get asked why you have an endless Louis Vuitton collection, never fear the judgments of your Sugar lessons and adventures. You got into the Sugar world for a reason and you are getting out for a reason. Your life, sugary or not, is always to be lived on your terms.
