I received an anonymous comment on my post, How I paid off my debt in 26 months. The commenter says, "Suicide looks better than a lifestyle like this"
Why is it that all negative comments are always written from anonymous?? I have very little respect for someone who can't tell me who they are when they put me down. Seems very cowardly to me.
I will admit that during this time of paying off my debt I was very lonely, I felt isolated from my friends and family because none of them were going through this like I was. It really wasn't a lot of fun living such a frugal lifestyle, but what kept me at it was knowing that this wasn't how I was going to have to live my life forever. The means justified the end. And now I have a beautiful condo, no debt and I have peace of mind that I didn't have during the frugal years. I have money in savings, I have money in retirement, I even have money in my wallet that for a lot of that time I didn't dare carry any cash because I knew I would spend it foolishly! And now and again I splurge a little on things for myself, I deserve it after all that I have achieved. I feel good about how far I have come in a relatively short amount of time.
So, now I say to you, anonymous, how much debt do you have? How much money do you have saved for your future? Tell me who you are and share your story.....
