The dirty river of debt often tempt us to stare. Like watching a fire on a polluted river, debt captivates us. But it's much more effective to stop staring at the filthy river. Instead build a bridge to cross the river of debt.
Results come when we create a bridge; sympathy results from complaining about the river of debt. We must choose to solve our problems or to get sympathy for our problems.
My wife and daughter felt their wardrobes were grossly inadequate. Not wanting to spend much money on clothes, they bought over $300 worth of clothes and jewelry in one day for $10. They used two gift cards and a special sale at a thrift store to pull off the feat.
A close family friend spent 18 months actively looking for a better job while still employed. He looked before he needed to and now is very happy with his new job. He could've complained about his job and looked for sympathy.
Go ahead build a bridge and stop staring!
