Bankruptcy is definitely not the end of the story. Maybe it is the end of a chapter in your life - however, it is definitely not the end of the road.
Of course, this is a very stressful and traumatic period of time, when many people go through acute depression and psychological and physiological problems. However, with time, and the new experience gathered, things can look up in no time.
When you are stricken by any such major catastrophes in your life, you would do well to remember that, 'When everything is lost, there is still the future.' Life carries on and you could be well off for the experience, if you learn from your mistakes and not repeat them.
Cast A Realistic Eye On The Matter.
After the bankruptcy, the first thing you would have to do is repair your credit. Without a proper credit record, you could be branded and an untouchable to all the financial institutions and banks.
Hence, if and when you get any credit after the bankruptcy, you should be doubly careful that you do not default any payments or else you will never come out from the bad credit shadow.
Keep records of your spending. The positive part of keeping accounts is that it is easy to use them to establish that things are moving on the right path.
A credit card or store card is the easiest way to improve your credit score, and hence it would be good if you keep a close track on the repayment schedule.
In case you need a loan, ensure that you do not repeat the mistakes you committed in the past that resulted in the bankruptcy.
You will need to be moderate in your expenditure and be very careful about money management, as any discrepancy would cost you in years of setback because it would show that you have not learnt your lesson yet.
If and when you take any sort of credit, ensure that you will calculate very carefully how much the repayment installmentis and how can you repay it.
Any slight delay in payments, or infractions could be taken very seriously by the lending companies. Hence, unless your repayment history is excellent over the next two years, there is no way you could get a half-way decent loan.
Special classes are held by non-profit organisations and even debt management program providers. The programs are helpful when you have no money, a bankruptcy behind you, and you need to learn how to hold and manage extra cash. Money management is a great and rewarding skill, and not just in regard to money. It helps your self-discipline generally.
These counseling classes are useful. You will find when visiting your counsellor, that the love of easy money is the root cause of most of your troubles; do not overspend and do not take anything for granted.
Once you have attended a money-management meeting, you will understand the value of the things you already have, and the majority of these things are not material.
