So often, people come to me, embarrassed and ashamed that they are facing bankruptcy, or a similar compromise of debt. They feel that they have failed. They are hard on themselves in a way that is not productive.
I created this pep talk in an effort to help them through this cross road in their life. Feel free to share this with anyone who you feel would benefit from it.
“You’re not here because you messed up. You’re here because you optimistically thought that you would continue on the progressive path you were on. But life happened and things change and you have to learn the rules of a new game. And its tough at first. But you will get through it. And you will learn from your experience. And be stronger because of it.
Life is a series of lessons. This is just one of them.
So hold your head up high. Walk out into the world. Be strong in the knowledge that you made a difficult decision that will benefit you and your family for years to come. Let the guilt go. Be thankful that you have learned this lesson at this stage in your life and not later.
I wish you health, happiness, peace and prosperity. “
