You are not alone. A recent study showed that 80 percent of Americans are dealing with the stresses of debt. As of January 2021, the average American has $90,460 in debt.

Another study conducted showed that individuals who struggle with debt are more likely to also suffer from depression and anxiety. It can affect your physical wellness, including headaches, lack of quality sleep, or an inability to focus or function. With 39 percent of Americans reporting unpaid credit card balances, it’s fair to say sometimes you need a little help dealing with your debt.

When it finally does come time to face that dreaded debt, you’re at another crossroads. Just exactly how do you go about dealing with your debt? Many people think filing for bankruptcy is the best and only option to turn to a way to get rid of their debt. Let’s put bankruptcy on the back burner, as there are alternative ways to achieve debt relief.*
