Paying Off Credit Card Debt

Feb 25, 2008
Being buried in credit card debts is a no laughing matter and it can add wrinkles to your face faster than you think it can. It can give you stress and you can never have total peace of mind thinking that you have debts to pay.

When you can finally pay every cent of your debts, you can breathe in relief as you feel the burden being lifted from your shoulders. However, there is more to paying your bills than you imagine. It is not that simple. Paying everything off is not like brushing off dirt from your arm that once the dirt is off, it will leave no signs and you will never know dirt has been there before.

Credit card debt is a very big problem that has claimed millions of victims everywhere in the world, a disease that befalls every individual who is irresponsible and undisciplined in the way they use their plastic money. A few of the people who ran into debts may have done it without choice to cover emergencies and they have no other source of funds. However, a vast majority of the victims are those who do not plan their finances well.

Paying off your debts require extreme effort, patience, discipline and planning on your part. It means curbing your urge to go on a buying spree for the next few months or even years just to clear every penny of your debts. You can do this, and you will feel a great achievement.

It is just like climbing a steep mountain where you have to exert effort and determination and when you finally get to the top, you will find your efforts paid off. The only failure that may happen to you as soon as you pay off your credit card debt is when you will be tempted to repeat the cycle and splurge to make up for the months and years of restraining yourself just to pay of everything.

If you give in the urge, very soon you will find yourself on the receiving end of notices and mountains of bills that once again, you have exceeded your credit limit and your debts has soared much higher that the last time. This means paying off your debt is not enough. You have experienced hardship just to pay off everything and now you need to discipline yourself to maintain a debt-free living.

See to it that there is no repetition of your uncontrollable spending habit. Every time you pick up an item to buy, ask yourself if you really need it. Then look at the price if you can afford it. Tell yourself not to overspend every minute of the day because you will suffer in the end.

You can close your eyes when you see amazing offers and price slash off in stores because one temptation leads to another. What is more, remember to pay your credit card debts on time. This way no bills will pile up and accumulate interest.
