Living with personal debt can be draining and emotionally exhausting, but it is the everyday reality for too many. Which begs the question, why don’t we talk about it more?
Our perception of debt is often influenced by our upbringing and for many, money is a way to manage emotions.
Being in debt is more common than you may realise: in 2017 the Financial Conduct Authority found that 3.3 million of us are in the red.
Our society also encourages debt; we are readily given access to credit cards whether we can afford one or not. We are bombarded with marketing that says “if I have, then I am happy”. That is a very powerful mindset. We get into debt because we want to be, look and feel better. It is a self-soothing negative cycle.
On a positive note, long-term debt can actually be beneficial because it teaches you better ways of living. Whether it is pre-empting your triggers or making rules, it is about identifying patterns of unhelpful behaviour. Join us for this workshop that will help you to confront debt, reframe your mindset and identify constructive strategies to get debt in check.
