    Thanks for sharing your story. In a lot of ways it is similar to what happened with my wife and I. Good job on not letting your bankruptcy define you. When you let a negative define you, it is much harder to motivate yourself to do something about it.

    Great first article John! The first one is always the hardest, you’ll get into the swing of things in the end :)

    It’s always great to hear people who have been in that position before, to be so thoughtful as to share their experiences and solutions with others who may be in a similar position!

    Wow, I don’t think I’de be mentally strong enough to deal with what you went through, it’s crazy how easy it is for our youngsters to be buried in mountains of debt before they even get out of their teens!

      Hi Cash Advance, thanks for coming to our blog, it’s really appreciated.

      It’s difficult to look back and think positively, but ultimately, it’s a learning experience. I do worry about the people going through money problems at the moment and how they are dealing with their problems. It’s what Debt Advice Resource is all about; an informal support mechanism for people to voice their questions, thoughts and opinions.
