Face Your Feelings

Accept how you feel, forgive yourself for any mistakes you’ve made, and begin thinking about how you can solve the problems. It’s OK to feel upset about your situation, but it’s not OK to avoid solving the problem because of how you feel.

Share Your Feelings with Someone Who Understands

You might have friends and family members who understand your situation or who have been there themselves. It can help to talk to someone like this and learn that you aren’t the first person to feel overwhelmed or upset by your finances.

Try to put aside your concerns about being judged. The people who truly care about you want you to get help and resolve your situation. They aren’t interested in attacking you or judging you, they want to help you.
