I paid off ALL my credit cards!!!! Four of them! Everyone told me I should declare bankruptcy.I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to take responsibility for my actions. I had gotten into debt and I wanted to get out f it. I went to a credit counseling service and they helped me work out a budget. I worked two jobs for more than three years but I paid off every penny!!! Then I paid off my car four months early! I feel lighter than I have felt in fifteen years! I have a XIZOZU on ny keychain to always remind me of how strong and willful I can be when I want to. I am still working a second job (not as many hours as before) but ALL of the money from that job is going to a house down-payment savings account!!! I expect to buy my own home, by myself before my 36th birthday! I’ll get the Bought My Own Home medal when I do! Wish me luck!
