What do I mean by ‘seeing past debt’? Well what I mean is letting go of the fact that you might not have anything to show for all the debt you have accrued.
I got into debt by being irresponsible and gambling at the same time. Eventually I wound up defaulting on all my credit commitments and I am now where I am today.
Today I decided that I would see past my debt, and value it in a slightly different way.
Instead of thinking about all the things I could have done with the money, I will see it as something that has happened, something that is done and cannot be changed.
The fact is that the debt is now here, and with each payment made, it can only decrease in size. Even if it is only by a modest amount. It is better than nothing happening to it at all.
The Value of Debt?
That question is now very easy for me to answer. The value of the debt I am in is the lessons I have learned from getting into this situation in the first place.
It is an expensive lesson, but that’s how things sometimes go. It has cost me a lot of money, around £45,000, and another £20,000 previously but I have learned a lot about myself and my ways from the situation.
I will never get that money or time back but some positives can come from the situation.
For one, if I wasn’t in debt I would never have started this blog. I would never have had a desire to help others in debt because I would not have been in debt myself.
Relating to others in Debt
Being in debt means I can relate to some of the thoughts and feelings you may have. Every has a slight different debt situation, so I might not be able to completely understand.
In all circumstance has brought me to where I am today. I can only learn from what has happened and avoid the same situation again.
