1. Ignoring The Issue and Pretending It Will Go Away

Last but not least, you shouldn’t ignore your problems and pretend that it will somehow magically go away. I’ve met so many people who went bankrupt or were on the edge of bankruptcy because they totally ignored the reality of the situation. But if they had just faced the problem head-on and dealt with it, they could have maintained their finances.

Most of the time, this attitude comes from fear. If you feel so incredibly overwhelmed with financial problems, it’s easier to just pretend it’s not real. But trust me when I say that if you ignore the problem, it will only get worse. If you need advice, look at this guide on settling credit card debt from the FTC. There are so many options in place for you to make things right before you end up in bankruptcy court. All it takes is facing the issues early, before it gets out of hand.
