Quicksand is basically a mushy mixture of sand and water that can no longer support any weight. It is really just regular sand that has been so saturated with water that there is no friction between sand particles. The resulting mixture can no longer support any weight and can trap you. If you are not careful, you can be pulled under indefinitely, however, if you take the right steps, you can survive and get back on solid ground. When you are in debt it can feel the same way.
Once you are in more debt than you can easily handle, the more you have, the more you struggle, the deeper you sink.
At 4 pillars Victoria we are your lifeline and we know how and what you need to do to get out of your debt quicksand.
Here are some key steps we can work through with you:
Accept that your debt is a problem. Debt is often something that slowly creeps up on you, building slowly over time. It can be hard to recognize and accept that it is a problem that you need help with.
Your debts likely have slowly increased from being small and acceptable into what now feels like something out of your control. The feelings can be overwhelming & negative. It is only when you take action and come up with a plan to move beyond the debt you have that you will feel a strong sense of achievement and control over your own life.
Once you see debt as a problem that you can overcome, you can move on and feel you are in control of your life.
Take steps to restore your confidence.
Panic and thrashing around with no plan is not the way to get out of quicksand. Your body is less dense than quicksand, so you won’t sink unless you panic and thrash around.
