It Will Get Better.

I'm sorry this is happening to you, bankruptcy is a loss of dreams.I know how scary it is but I also know it can get better. Ten years ago I walked away from my house,I had no job,no education beyond high school, no credit rating and 11 pet birds to look after. I had only $1000. and a 10 year old car. I had been a "lady who lunches" but my ex told me he would kill me if I tried to get my money out of the house.I took two newspaper routes that I had to start at 3:00am and I had two minimum wage jobs in retail.I tried to surround myself with positive reading(Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich helped).Everytime I started to cry because I was delivering papers in the -40F cold (I live in northern Alberta) I  promised myself that I would have another home soon. I did my absolute best at my jobs, people noticed and promoted me.I worked 15-18 hours a day for 5 years.That's how long it took for me to pay off a condo in a downtown highrise.It took another 5 years to save enough money so I don't have to work anymore. I'm not very bright, or educated but if I can do it you can too.
