Just what I was afraid of: taking the tragic way out of a situation when there are alternatives.


The financial state of our economy as well as the personal debt of many American citizens has led to the second suicide related story of the week.

The details of this story are really not important.
The fact remains that many Americans have too much pride to “suck it up” and get things done.

Is the debt of the American public so bad, that the alternative to paying it down is suicide?

I have personally known and personally know the trials and tribulations of living within your means. I know what its like to HAVE to live this way because of stupid financial decisions. However, I have had to pick my life up and be responsible for what Ive inflicted upon my wallet and credit score. And rebuilding is long and hard.

The best feeling in the world is being able to say: I am debt free and living within my means.
