G Is For Guilty

Most of us have been taught to pay our bills.
If you borrow money, you should pay it back. We get mad at our “friends” who don’t pay us back.
Whether it is money for furniture, a truck, a car, a boat, a house, a vacation, ato get through college, or a loan from a friend or relative. We are supposed to pay it back as promised, or, at worst, when we can.
I tell my clients who file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, if you get the money later, you can pay back whoever you want.
Filing bankruptcy does not prevent you from paying your debts, it gives you relief fromcreditors.
Some clients told me last week they were feeling so guilty, even though they have no choice.
People who file Chapter 7 bankruptcy do not have the money to pay their bills, whether they file or not.
