Don't worry, bankruptcy is not scary

Your debt spiraled out of control in recent years. Maybe you had a medical emergency. Maybe you lost your job and still needed to pay the bills. Things outside of your control created a lot of unexpected debt, and now you're looking into your options.

One option, you know, is to declare bankruptcy. However, like many people, that's a scary idea to you. It feels intimidating. You don't know where to start. You don't want to make any mistakes.

Some people get so nervous that they put off bankruptcy for months or years, even when it would clearly be the best option for them. They let their fear take over. At the same time, their debt just keeps getting worse and worse. This fear is actually working against them in a financial sense. It is holding them back significantly.

It's not as scary as you think

First and foremost, bankruptcy is not as frightening or intimidating as you think. You don't go through it alone, after all. You work with professionals who can show you the ropes and guide you through every step of the process. This may be your first time declaring bankruptcy, but it's something that 800,000 people do every year. For the courts and other bankruptcy professionals, this is far from the first time.

The sheer amount of people who do it also shows you that it's not that scary. You may feel like you don't know where to begin. Well, you can rest assured that many of those people felt exactly the same way. They had no idea how to get started. They also felt like they were over their head in debt, just like you do, and they had never considered bankruptcy before. They still got through it. You can, too.

Remember, for most people, a bankruptcy filing is the first one they have ever made. In fact, after you file, you cannot legally do it again for a set amount of years. It differs depending on the type of bankruptcy you use, but the point is this: People are not filing constantly. For most, it's the first and only time. They all feel like you do. You are not alone and there is no reason to worry.

The process

On top of all of that, the bankruptcy process does not happen overnight. You have plenty of time to consider each and every step. You can think about the potential ramifications and the legal steps you need to take. You can consider what your financial future is going to look like. By the time you make a decision, you will feel confident that it is the right one for you.
