While surfing blog comments at other personal finance blogs, I came across a story of a reader. Which reads like below.
A couple of years ago, I was doing well when it comes to finances. I knew I was doing better than a lot of my friends and family. I was having a good job. Everything was actually really, really great.
Then recession came—and my world, as well as the others’, came tumbling down. The start-up company wasn’t able to pick itself up and it had to close down, leaving me with no job at all. My wife was also laid off from her job. No matter how much we searched for work, no one would like to take us! For seven months, we weren’t able to do anything, and before we knew it, our savings dwindled. We could hardly pay our utilities, much more our credit card bills.
