Why feeling ashamed of your debt could lead to more debt

Many people struggling with a mountain of debt commonly feel emotions such as shame, guilt, unhappiness and sadness. After all, they may be afraid of losing their house, creditors could be hassling them and/or they are having a hard time recognizing how everything happened. It is easy to attribute debt, especially credit card debt, to moral failings.

Can you get out of debt quickly?

The "bad" news first--it is unlikely you can get out of debt in a matter of days or weeks. A report published in 2016 pointed out that the average American household carried a debt load of $137,063, and that is a big mountain to surmount quickly. Even if it is only a relatively small chunk of that debt you want to erase, say, your $16,000 credit card debt, you are usually looking at a long-term haul.
