I highly recommend the Debt Angels service and using them to help you face up to your impossible mountain of debt, if that’s where you’ve found yourself. Give yourself the gift of some room to breathe in moving forward. It’s so easy.

Room to breathe and start fresh

Are you in a tight financial squeeze? If you’re backed against the wall and you don’t know how to negotiate or communicate with your finance providers, the Debt Angels service could be for you.

With all the expenses of running a household as a single mum, combined with a lack of good decision-making at times, I found myself up to the neck in a financial crisis in April 2017. I was at the point of working solely to pay off my credit card and using what I had paid to live, minus interest. I honestly had no idea how I was going to change that situation and living in a tourist town, about to go into the quiet season, I was panic stricken and really feeling the pinch. This affected my moods, my energy levels and my overall attitude to life in less than positive ways, which in turn was affecting my biggest priority. Parenthood. I was in dire straights to say the least.

One day I was confiding with my sister, who lives in Sydney, and she told me about a friend of hers who might be able to help. She said the business was called Debt Angels. Straight away I felt positive about it. Even the name sounded like it was for me, because right then, I knew that I needed some kind of divine intervention. I called Kitty, from Debt Angels and she explained to me that she might be able to help me get a reprieve from the impossible mountain I had been attempting to climb. I slept so much better that night, after I’d spoken to her, knowing I had options and support.

The signing up and paperwork process was really easy and took very little of my time. I wasn’t 100 per cent sure, even though Kitty had answered all my questions completely, as I guess it just felt unnatural to suddenly have that huge burden lifted off my shoulders. I went ahead, basically because I knew I had to.

Cutting up my cards was liberating and not at all scary to me. I felt like it was a turning point and that my new life from that day forward was going to be so much better than climbing that mountain day after day. The mountain is still there, but I’ve had a chance to get off it and reassess my new strategy for climbing it as soon as I can.

Meanwhile, on my career front, I have been writing articles like this one, sending out blogs and content and finishing a book about single parenting that I started two years ago. I had so many articles uncompleted and new ideas had stopped flowing because I had been a slave to those huge minimum repayments. Now, without that stress I am finding that the writer’s block is gone. At last I’m finding new energy to start afresh in my career and try again. I guess I was so stressed out, I couldn’t think straight, let alone form sentences. I realise now that my situation, and my reaction to it were like a vicious circle. The more stressed I became, the less I was able to do about it. Debt is tiring as I am sure you know and most of us don’t even know that when it becomes overwhelming there are places to rest for a while and regroup.

There’s still a long road ahead of me in becoming debt free but I really feel that this time out has been a great help. It has given me the opportunity to gain some perspective and a chance to rebuild my career in a way that is more aligned with future prosperity. As it turned out, I was right, there has been very little paid work in my hometown this winter and it would almost certainly have been a very hard time for my family to stay afloat. Instead of getting pressured calls from the credit card companies all winter, I received very polite letters from both of them advising me that I had been granted a short-term reprieve on the grounds of hardship. And breathe.

Debt Angels had helped the credit card companies to see me as a person, not just as a number to call, on repeat. My only regret is that I didn’t find this service two years ago as I could have halved the amount of debt I went in to. Lesson learned. If you can see the writing on the wall, read it and contact Debt Angels sooner rather than later. Accepting help from them was one of the best decisions I could have made in starting to get my financial life on track.

Thank you Debt Angels!
