As much as I want to do this, it's been really hard for me to write about how I ended up where I am today. It's embarrassing to expose such private details of my life and the thought of it alone has left me with deep feelings of vulnerability (especially to those who know me personally). Having such a large amount of debt is humiliating and degrading, but it's my reality and the reality of so many others. I have always understood my responsibility in repaying my student loans, but it's my goal from now on to focus on the positive aspects and healthy life-style changes.
So please, always feel welcome to share any helpful tips, creative ideas and words of encouragement.
Thank you for your support!
