Today’s dear debt letter, as part of the #DitchYourDebt challenge, comes from Asherah, a 40-year-old wife and mother of 2, who resides in New Jersey and is seeking to be debt free.

Dear Debt,

We met at a time in my life when I needed you to be there for monthly necessities and it grew into me becoming dependent on you for seven years. While we have been involved for a long time now you seem to be lingering around with no positive effect on my life.

I have gotten tired and frustrated of living this way and I have been re-evaluating my life. God told me there is no room for you here. I am sorry but this endless relationship has to end now. Thanks for being there but you are no longer needed.
