Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Information is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
— Samuel Johnson
Knowledge is power. The more information we have, the more empowered we feel. The unknown can be scary. We don’t know what we’re getting into so we don’t act at all. When we know our legal rights and obligations, we start making decisions we feel good about. We can confront difficult situations with confidence instead of fear.
We can get information about our legal rights concerning debt and divorce or debt and collection agencies by visiting the library, a lawyer, Debtors Anonymous meetings, financial advisers, and nonprofit consumer credit agencies.
Today I will make it my responsibility to learn as much as I can about my debt and related legal issues.
