The Struggle is REAL!
Since the beginning of my journey I have often seen post of people who are now debt free in anywhere from 5 months to 18 months...which don't get me wrong is amazing!!!! But ummm am I the only one wondering where all this extra income is coming from? I don't think I could pull $2,000 extra a month based on my expenses but that is my story not theirs. I know it is hard not to turn the mirror back on you once you read or hear stories like these but don't do it because it will ruin your whole mood.
I have often said that the journey to being debt free is not easy. This will forever be true! I brushed up on this a bit in my 7 Mistakes Made When Budgeting post...so if you haven't had a chance check it out.

We often find ourselves comparing our struggles to those around us which leads to feelings of inadequacy. DO NOT COMPARE YOUR JOURNEY TO SOMEONE ELSE! Their story may of had different struggles but it was their story to tell. I suggest that instead you focus on your own struggles and create an effective plan to effectively attack your debt.
Let's take a step back and check out a few rules that I use to keep myself in check.
