Authors To Inspire You Through Bankruptcy: George Orwell

spending-bankruptcyBy now, by regularly reading the Affordable Bankruptcy Courses blog, you know all too well the true value of inspirational and motivational words of wisdom during a time as stressful as filing for bankruptcy. You will also know that you are not alone, and the emotions you are feeling during this time are entirely normal, and are commonly experienced amongst the hundreds of thousands of filers every year. Once you have accepted these as truths – and as Orwell once wrote, “Happiness can only exist in acceptance,” – then you are able to move onto the next phase mentally: tackling the problem and ensure it does not occur again in the future.

Remember you are just one person. You are not a superhero. No one is expecting you to remain strong throughout the entire process. It is completely acceptable to experience emotion, and have moments of weakness. Orwell himself expressed the notion that “In the face of pain there are no heroes.” You are only human. Bankruptcy is painful, and it would be unusual for you to not react to this pain. In trying to remain strong for the sake of saving face, you are increasing your mental stresses during an already trying time. Do not take on the mental burden of a team of people. Take things at your own pace, and remember, “The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.” Bankruptcy didn’t creep up on you overnight; neither will it disappear overnight. You can’t strive for perfection and expect everything to be rectified instantly. But in taking small steps to improve your financial situation, you are headed in the right direction.

“The consequences of every act are included in the act itself.”

Never was a truer word spoken! This phrase is perfect in defining the vicious bankruptcy cycle that so many people fall victim to every day. In spending more than your budget allows, the consequences are…what? That you fall into debt and don’t have enough money to live on. In short, spending more money than you have, results in not having enough money to spend…

…which then results in more overspending…

…meaning you do not have enough money to buy the things you need…

…so you continue to spend beyond your means…

And the vicious cycle continues. So how can you break it? For starters, you can budget! In learning the essential concepts for managing your spending and saving patterns, you are making a great start. If you are already in a situation of severe financial distress, then perhaps you should consider filing for bankruptcy.
