Dealing With Debt

The thing you should remember about having debt is not so much of what it is, but what it can do. Many people get into debt and the longer they remain in it the more hope is lost.

I’m not only speaking about finances, but situations, behaviors, relationships, things or tendencies. Debt can lead you into a feeling of hopelessness, unworthiness and depression if you allow it to govern who you are.

It seems like I’ve said this before, but you can’t carry the whole weight. Life sometimes can get you down, people will not always be true, things may not go exactly how you want them to go, but try to take it in stride.

Our debts can rob us of our dreams, kill our ambitions and replace our aspirations with disappointment or hopelessness, if you allow it. You can not get out of debt until you have first taken inventory of your debt.

What or who binds you from doing what you want or need to do?

What is it about me that has allowed this thing or person to govern me in such a way I am indebted to it or them?

How do I can get out of debt?

These sound like financial questions, but can be applied to other areas of life as well.

I believe you should first not allow pride, shame or guilt hinder you from getting out of the situation you find yourself in. We all make mistakes. What we must remember to do is to acknowledge the reality of your mistakes, recognize the pattern or path that lead you into making the mistake, then move forward in correcting it.

You can beat what is beating you down. Don’t let your debt be your dream killer, kill it.
