Life Debt and the Pursuit of Suicide

I hate you!

Was that too harsh?

I hope it was, because I truly hate you.

I was always taught not to hate anyone or anything but it’s time for me to break the rules (Mother forgive me) because I hate you.

I hate everything about you.

This is not a shot at you the reader. I’m talking about good old-fashioned consumer debt, the type of debt that causes you to seek shelter from annoying phone calls and threatening letters. I’m talking about the type of debt that forces you to call the debt resolution team for some type of reprieve.
Why do I hate debt with such a passion? Let me tell you why…

  • Debt is like a silent plague. It starts out as a minor bump but slowly starts to consume you until there is no sign of the original you left.
  • Debt strangles the life away from you. Your life is no longer your own, it belongs to the bank.
  • Debt is a killer and I mean that in a literal sense. Did you know that the word “Mortgage” was derived from two words “Death Grip?” Mort = Death and Gage = Grip. I believe years ago when the mortgage was invented it was clear that this type of loan would last until death do you part.
  • True Fact: I know of at least seven people who have committed suicide. All of them had just one thing in common and that was the fact that they all had money issues. I haven’t checked the statistics on this one but I am sure that I am in the top majority.
  • Debt is a destroyer. It destroys marriages. It destroys dreams and it destroys hope.

Many peole say that debt is something that we all have to live with and I understand that. However, let me make it clear, just because you live with rat doesn’t mean that you have to feed it.

Maybe I’m alone in this fight. Maybe I am the only one who is willing to embrace financially stable lifestyle.
Maybe I am the only one who is willing to prioritize my life.

Whenyour priorities are correct, you preserve and protect. Correct priority is the principle of progress because when you establish your priority according to your purpose and goals then your progress is guaranteed. Correct priority simplifies your life. Failure to establish correct priority causes you to waste your two most important commodities: your time and your energy.

When your priorities are not correct, you will find yourself busy with the wrong things, majoring on the minor, or becoming preoccupied with the unimportant. Incorrect priorities in your life will cause you to invest in the less valuable . Ultimately, it will cause you to forfeit purpose, which results in failure.

I’ve had my own struggles, so I know how hard it can be. I also know that one book on the subject is not nearly enough to fight this demon. People need details. They need resources. They need that constant push and most importantly they need help.

Do you hate debt as much as I do, then it’s time to stop procrastinating and start living the life you were intended to live.
