Right now, I’m going through some stuff with my kids regarding money owed for a car situation, and I don’t know whether to deal with it or just let it go. But one of my friends just told me something profound. He said that bad news never gets better with time. Uncomfortable situations and discussions don’t go away when you put them off and continuing to push them away just prolongs the inevitable. You’re going to have to deal with things eventually, so why not face them head on?
I’ve learned this from my own experience as well. When I owed the IRS a ton of money in back taxes and penalties, I was just burying my head in the sand and not dealing with the problem. I was trying to take care of it on my own before anyone found out about it, and it backed me into a corner. Eventually, I was forced to deal with it, and admitting that I needed help was the first step. The sooner you ask for help, the sooner you can get out of whatever problems you’re facing.
Listen and learn:
- Why time passing doesn’t make bad news any better.
- Why you should ask for help as soon as you need it.
