In my bankruptcy alphabet, L is for the Life you can get back when you get rid of your debts.
My bankruptcy clients are often simply consumed by managing their debts.
There is no room for rest, savings, dreaming.
Life has become the struggle to make the next round of payments.
L could also be for Lift, the lifting of a weight that many don’t realize they are carrying around until they know that most debts can be discharged in bankruptcy.
I also hope that L could stand for Less. For a Life less made of up things, of keeping up with the Joneses, with the quest for the newest, greatest gizmo that our consumption driven society touts.
Wouldn’t it be Lovely?
