When the word “DEBT” surfaces or echoes in the ear, it introduces fear and anxiety to your heart or makes you uncomfortable. Some even panic, worrisome or become pensive and for others, their mind wanders off. Others even think their lender is around the corner, making their heart skip.
When in debt you move from paycheck to paycheck. You anticipate every salary coming and after budgeting, you realize nothing is left because of debt. Most times, you feel bad because you will be settling debt which makes you remorseful. Debt can cause serious emotional destabilization and it affects people differently. That’s why people handle debt differently. Knowing why you are in debt and how to control it is very important.
More debt is because of credit cards, flamboyant lifestyle, mortgage debt, household debt, business, and others. When you are in debt, you have issue overhauling your mindset and never think of your finance properly. You feel you are in debt forever and will never leave you.
Why are you in debt you ask yourself series of questions. How did you get into debt? How did debt become a part of your lifestyle? Do you know debt affects psychological and mental impact? Do you know when you are in debt your choices are restricted and actions limited? Do you know debt puts one in confusion? When in debt, there are chances that you can’t solve problem effectively well or even think well. All these questions and more are the great effect of debt on the debtor.


WHAT IS DEBT?


DEBT is an amount of money you incurred by the borrower from the lender to settle an outstanding issue.


7 IMPACTS OF DEBT


The following below are the negative impact of debt.


FEAR


When you are in debt what comes to your mind is what is next? Will the debtor come to embarrass you? How do I pay off this debt? When will I pay it off? When will the debtor stop harassing me? You worry about the impact on your family and at work. A higher number of fear currently from people is financial fear of what is next and what might happen. Fear of debtor coming to deprive you of something valuable or cause shame or embarrassment to you.


ANGER


When you are in debt, you are mad with people around you. You are mad with the lender sending you mails, calls, messages just to remind you of the deadline.
Most times, you transfer the anger to pairs at work, family or friends for no reasons even when the interest rate is higher makes you madder.


STRESS


You feel stressed up, worrying if you will ever settle the debt. Having enough stress can make you get stressed if you are home jobless or a working class. Stress from debt can make you unhappy. When you are stressed financially, you lack sleep and focus.


DEPRESSION


When you are in debt, you are mentally down leading to depression. Every time you look at the amount, you get depressed, which affects your mood. When depressed, there is no hope and you experience low self-esteem.


DENIAL


When you are in debt, you are denied a lot of things which puts you off buying things you need, and the debt constantly remind you there is something to settle. Most times, it leads to depth in debt.


REMORSEFUL


When you are in debt, you feel remorseful. You regret ever making the purchase that led to debt and regret not saving money and not planning for your finance.


DEATH


I heard of cases where the person in debt could not harbor the shame and disgrace the debt caused him, he committed suicide. I read of few cases in the paper about a wealthy person in debt that died because of debt. He had high blood pressure, fell to the floor and passed away.


13 REASONS YOU ARE IN DEBT


(1) TIME RANGE OF DEBT ACCUMULATED


You are in debt because you never take time to consider your debt, know how much your debt is and how long it takes you to settle it. You can’t remember when you incurred the debt and how it accumulated all this while.


(2) HOUSING AND BILLS


You are in debt because of the large house you live in and with huge monthly bills to pay and its eating deep into your finance and making life uncomfortable for you.


(3) LOANS


You are into debt because of student’s or housing loans and you have been struggling to pay off your loans and still struggling to get a job or salary not enough to start paying off your loans.


(4) YOU CAN’T SAY NO


Because you can’t say NO to your loved ones, you find yourself in debt. You always buy everything for them. You don’t know when to say you can’t afford it for now that it should be later, and you can’t place a limit on your spending habit.


(5) FRIVOLOUS SPENDING


you are in debt because of frivolous spending which has developed into a habit and has eaten deep into you and killing you slowing and you are totally blind to it. In spending frivolously, you acquire debt, buy in debt and it stops you from saving or investing or starting your side hustle and thinking of your future financially. It’s good to reward one ‘self but should have precaution.


(6) INTEREST RATE


you also accumulate debt because of accumulated interest rates that grows with time and makes you financially uncomfortable.


(7) COMPETING


you are in debt because you are competing with your pairs and want to live up to expectation and don’t want to be the odd one. What so ever your pairs acquire you must buy it just to be able to hang around them.


(8) DON’T SAVE


you are in debt because you don’t see a reason to save and when you are in debt, you have no emergency fund to fall back on. You live paycheck to paycheck because of too much expenses so you can’t save.
(9) GAMBLER


you are in debt because you are a gambler, in doing this, you have incurred innumerable losses you are struggling to pay off and you don’t know how to go about it.


(10) REDUCED SALARY


You are in debt because your company decided to cut cost and they cut down on income which led to debt and you struggle to balance and manage the expenses incurred too. The salary is lesser, and the expenses incurred seems to be more.
(11) DIVORCED


You are in debt because you separated from your spouse and must pay him/her off in assets, cash and others which affected you financially and in every area of your life.


(12) MONEY MANAGEMENT


You are debt because you don’t manage your money well, no budgeting for your finance, no record of what goes out and comes in. you just mix everything together. You don’t understand how money works so you are not financially literate. You don’t what’s making you incurred the expenses and what you are really spending more money on.


(13) CARD
You are in debt because you don’t manage your card well. You need to cut the expenses you are accumulating with your card and ought to be dealt with or managed effectively but you use it uncontrollably anytime for pointless payment.


CONCLUSION
With these, you know what debt all about is, its impact on you and the reasons and many more are in debt. They might either be small or big reasons, but we pay no attention to them till it they cause disgrace and shame because it was not well- managed or handled. I also know there are many more reasons but these thirteen are very important and should be carefully investigated.
