Debt is an 800 lb gorilla on our backs. It can consume our thoughts and have us living in a paranoid state whenever the phone rings or the mail comes. They are all little reminders of the impending doom we feel from debt.
Are your accounts being turned over to debt collectors? Are you worried about losing your home or your car?
Many people face a financial crisis at some point in their lives. Whether the crisis is caused by personal or family illness, the loss of a job, or overspending, it can seem overwhelming. But often, it can be overcome. Your financial situation doesn’t have to go from bad to worse.
If you or someone you know is in financial hot water, consider these options: self-help using realistic budgeting and other techniques; debt relief services, like credit counseling or debt settlement from a reputable organization; debt consolidation; or bankruptcy. How do you know which will work best for you? It depends on your level of debt, your level of discipline, and your prospects for the future. You needn’t walk around with that gorilla on your back. Get some debt relief.
