Your Credit Score: When to Stop Fighting the Rapids

By admin • May 25th, 2011

“But won’t bankruptcy destroy my credit?!” We have heard it time and time again and are sure you have had that thought once or twice, especially if you are contemplating filing. The truth is bankruptcy actually acts as a repair for your credit.

Think about it, if you are having thoughts of filing bankruptcy, you probably aren’t in the best of financial situations at the moment anyways. The piling of bills and never ending debt aren’t looking so good on your credit report. If you’re trying to repair your credit score without bankruptcy, it may be like trying to swim up a white water rapid. No matter how hard you swim, the waves are too strong and will only push you back.

All of your bills and large amount of debt will keep pushing you back from achieving the credit score you want. Instead of fighting the rapids, you should think of exiting the river and walking up the stream.

With Bankruptcy, you discharge all of your stressful debt and are given a fresh start. Yes, your credit score will decrease when you initially file, but think of how easy it will be to reestablish an excellent credit score without having all of the baggage on you. You can walk up that river with ease; nothing will push or hold you back.

You can achieve that credit score you once had or always dreamed of once you rid yourself of everything that is holding you back and keeping you from what you financially desire.
