If all else fails, go home

Where, assuming you have reached this age, do/did you think you would be at middle age?  Me, I hoped to be settled on a personal and financial basis.  Sadly, that is not the case.

I am out of options for raising the initial funds for the Insolvency, I have tried multiple options and my last option today has not panned out either.  This leaves only one way to go, a humiliating cap in hand walk to my parents.   Please don’t get me wrong, they offer to help me multiple times in a month so the shame is on my part.   Who would actually feel comfortable with asking your parents for a few thousand pounds?

It will be paid back, everyone I have ever borrowed money from has been paid back.  Except for the HMRC of course, but that is a very different matter.  I feel very uncomfortable with borrowing money from family or friends, despite the genuine offer it puts a different pressure on me.

This time it is important, this is not for personal debt clearance or to give me extra money, it is to draw a line under my company and it’s debts.  It looks like, until I clear this debt, that embarrassment comes hand in hand with it.   It is has been going on so long now I forget what it feels like to have wages and have zero to pay out.

I’ll go round this weekend and get it over with.  Believe me, I can’t look any more pathetic than I already look.

One thought on “If all else fails, go home”

  1. I know this cannot and will not be easy for you to do, but your family would not have offered if they did not have the ability to make the loan. Getting out from under this crippling company debt is imperative and you’re taking the necessary steps to protect your ability to provide for your children. Please try not to be so hard on yourself.
