Avoid The Rotting Pumpkin

The pumpkin is a great Halloween tradition. You hollow out the inside, draw your favorite pattern, and then carve away. It seems there is always that one kid who doesn’t want to let go of the pumpkin after Halloween is over. We know as adults what will happen if we hold on to that pumpkin for too long: we’ll have a rotting pumpkin.
Honestly, it’s a silly example. Most kids don’t need such a dramatic demonstration to get the idea that it might be good to throw an old pumpkin away. After you’ve pulled the seeds, and roasted and salted them, as well as taken out some fresh pumpkin to make pies or bread with, the pumpkin’s been plenty useful. After the candles, the candy, and the funny costumes, it’s time to throw the thing away.
Yet how many of us are like those kids who won’t let go of the pumpkin when it comes to our financial stability? We’ve carved the design of how we want our lives to look, and for whatever reason, it’s gotten messed up. We know that it’s time to start again, but we think that bankruptcy protection somehow means that we haven’t been doing our best.
A bankruptcy is not a judgment on you or your life. In fact, the system is designed to help you, the borrower. Your goals and dreams can still be what they are, but you might need some help to clear the obstacles out of the way.
Don’t hold on to a rotting husk long after there’s anything worth saving. You can start fresh. Hopefully there will be many happy Halloweens to come for you and yours.
