It can be defeating to feel like you have no other options, but the bankruptcy process is meant to provide individuals relief. And even though you may feel like no one you know has had to file bankruptcy, you may be surprised to learn all the people you know who have had to file bankruptcy in the past. 

Individuals from all walks of life, and backgrounds use bankruptcy relief, from teachers to lawyers, doctors, religious leaders, mechanics, and business owners.  Unfortunately, the stigma surrounding bankruptcy has prevented many people from be forthcoming about having to file. Filing bankruptcy is not a failure, it is simply a means for an individual to get help. Life is messy. It would be wonderful if we could all predict the future and make all the right decisions, but that is simply not the way it works. Markets crash, the economy takes a downturn, companies downsize, people get sick, businesses fail, and marriages end-this is life. 

It is a brave decision to file bankruptcy, and you are not alone. Many people struggle with overcoming obstacles when they are deciding if filing a bankruptcy is the right choice for them. Having to admit you need help, or admitting you misjudged a situation can be tough to internalize. In a lot of ways filing bankruptcy is the responsible decision to make. Struggling day in and day out is no way to live. And remember this is just small time period in your life, it comes and it goes, and it does not define you or make you a bad person. Bankruptcy provides relief to so many individuals. There is no a stereotypical filer. The scenarios and circumstances that lead up filing a bankruptcy are unique to each individual.
