The United States has a well-deserved reputation as a generous nation. Over the past ten years, Americans have given trillions of dollars to charity. Yet much of this giving goes to faceless people in remote areas (an earthquake in Haiti or a tsunami in Japan).
When we consider a neighbor in need instead of a country in need, our attitude is a lot different. The “Poverty Prejudice” tells us that poor people are poor because they are lazy and/or dishonest and/or unintelligent.
The Poverty Prejudice extends to personal bankruptcy. Prejudice tells us that poor financial planning and “living beyond your means” is the primary cause of personal bankruptcies, when statistics show the opposite.
If you are experiencing a financial hardship, don’t let the Poverty Prejudice become the bankruptcy prejudice. Don’t let prejudice, whether someone else’s prejudice or your own, stand in the way of your bankruptcy filing and the fresh start that you and your family deserve.
