Do not believe everything you hear, or read online ESPECIALLY when it is about finances, money, debt, or loans! Learn to assess your situation and research your options. Personally, I am one who believes there is more than one way to skin a cat! I always look outside the box... I pretty much live outside the box. Ha. Ha.
Acceptance of normalcy is bad. Going with the flow means you buy into every article written about money and believe you cannot get ahead. Gloom and doom thinking is bad. We all have friends and family members who speak the language of negativity. When nay-sayers come around, kindly push them aside and determine that you will accomplish what you set out to do-whether it be with money or purchases, or anything else in life.
Misery loves company so people who have a lot of debt want to put others in that category too. It makes them feel comfortable. Comfortable in a conversation or at a party- but, THEY DO NOT SLEEP AT NIGHT, worrying about how they can pay the bills and continue to live the "fake" lifestyle they are living. This is a full time job after their real "day job" and it is exhausting.
So, let me be clear, be honest with yourself, if you are living in debt, GET MAD, get tired of it and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. When you put it on paper and talk about it, you can start to find help. Contact a financial coach, or me, Marla, at Financial Pacemaker Coaching, and spend a few dollars investing in your future. If you do not act, your future will NOT change.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THAT!!
