I was $372,347 in debt. Keyword: was. I went to a private college, out of state, and with little tuition assistance. Right there is $150k of the problem.
On top of that, I bought brand new cars???- cars?, $32k.
And I thought I was helping myself with those storefront credit cards $28k.
The other $162k was an income property we were so far upside down we would have to sell it for a crazy loss.
Then “one morning” started with a conversation about bankruptcy, or at least a forced foreclosure. Then I got hit with a medical bill regarding my brand new baby. THEN I got notified that my $22 a month student loan bill would be readjusted to $942 a month.
I found myself just like everyone else that gets lost. Even writing it still gives me the chills to know I was that far in debt and didn’t even realize it until I faced that fear head on. It took having the very honest conversations of bankruptcy and/or forced foreclosure creating the mindset change within me.
