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.
