Happy Friday! We have another dear debt letter for ya. Markita from Shewasdebtful.com is currently working her way through her student loan repayment plans while holding herself accountable to paying off debt.
Do you have any idea what you’ve done to me? You remind me of my last relationship, where I kept running back to them, even though they treated me like crap.
Was it their fault that I sought the normalcy of the relationship? I say no. I got used to the treatment, but like that relationship, I am calling it quits. With them and with you.
There will not be anymore tears of frustration looking at the overwhelming number for two degrees that have yet to help me get a full-time professional job.
My depression will not stem from the knowledge that I will have to pay for 10 years worth of debt plus interest well into my 30s. Something that I promised myself I would NEVER do.
Freedom. I was doubtful that I could see the end of the tunnel, but just having the vision is already making me feel elated and confident that the future struggle will be worth it.
The credit cards are done too. My car will be paid off and any future large purchase will be paid in full. What, no house? Not in the near future.
Because you see debt, I plan to travel. By myself or with friends. Not with you or any form of you. I’m gonna be free from you and the chains you hold on me. It will all be over. I choose to move on. I choose to be free from you, debt. It will happen.
