I just watched the most exceptional video of the one song that I always think of when it comes to being in debt, “Stand By Me”.
In fact it was the song that most spoke to me in my darkest days of debt troubles. When I couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night, when I had those panic attacks, and when I felt like nothing but a loser, this one song provided me comfort.
The message of the song is still so very true today. When you are in debt, while you might want a magic wand to make the situation vanish, what you really want most is someone just to stand by you. They don’t have to help, just listen and care about you. Just be a friend.
The only thing worse than suffering in debt is to suffer alone, in silence, adrift.
So maybe this song should be the site theme song, all I really want the GetOutOfDebt.org site to be is a place that stands by people in trouble to provide a shoulder to lean on in tough times.
