Debt Stigma

It’s old news now, but earlier this week,  I revealed J’s identity  because another blogger had made the connection and so I am a control freak decided to reveal the secret on my own terms, so with true GMD style I wrote a fairytale post about it. :P

When I discovered that someone had figured it out, I was first shocked speechless and then I had a minor freak out. J’s reaction? He didn’t think it was a big deal.

I reminded him that part of the reason why I was so hesitant in starting my blog in the first place was because I knew for certain that I wanted to stay anonymous forever which was a huge contrast to his very public, Google-searchable blog. This led to discussion of why I was so insistent on staying anonymous and I’m not sure what I was thinking but my automatic reply was you don’t have debt, you wouldn’t understand.”

This got me to thinking…if I didn’t have debt and the stigma associated with it, would I still be an anonymous blogger or would my smiling face be everywhere like J’s?

Let’s face it, debt is a dirty, depressing word which is why so many people avoid talking about it. It’s a popular subject in the personal finance community but I can’t think of too many “debt bloggers” who blog about their debt in the open using their real identity.

People have their own reasons for blogging anonymously or not, but I know that even though I am proud of myself for no longer being in denial about my debt and taking aggressive action to pay it off, I am ashamed that I still have so much of it being the age that I am. My reasonable side comprehends that the majority of my overall debt is from student loans but the tough side is so angry that I didn’t start taking action sooner to pay it down.

Every end of month I do a debt repayment update where I literally show down to the penny how much I paid towards it and how much is left on the balance. I know that I wouldn’t be able to write about that if my identity didn’t stay a secret. No one in my real life knows about how dire my debt situation is. Not even my parents. They know I have student loan debt but they know nothing of the consumer credit card debt. They definitely don’t know the exact numbers since I only talk about it vaguely if they ever ask how I am doing with my repayment progress. The only person who knows the truth about my full financial situation is J.

I know that society has to stop putting such a negative stigma on debt so that more people feel they can reach out for help if they need it and I am hoping that blogging about my journey to a debt-free life will inspire at least one person that they are not alone. I love getting email so if anyone ever feels like they need to talk with someone about their debt, I am in no ways a professional but I am a great listener. :)

Let’s hear in the comments below if you think debt still has the stigma that it use to?

    In the US, I honestly believe the stigma has changed. Everyone has debt! Damn near everyone my age has student loans and it’s a hot topic. One of the reasons I do not blog anonymously is because I will do everything I can to help people avoid the mistakes I made that got me into so much debt. Personal stories are especially compelling. I’m not ashamed of the debt I have. It sucks I made the mistakes I did to get here, but it does not own me. I own it!

      Your optimistic and brave attitude about everything in your life humbles me. I wish I could be more like you but I am still working on not letting my debt “own me.” It’s a work in progress but I think I am getting closer.

    I am not certain if I’d say that debt has a negative stigma with it or not. Maybe I am blind to it, but I am not sure. I do think that many are just numbed to debt and have no problem carrying it for one reason or another. I believe, unfortunately, that there are few and far between that are actually working hard to pay off their debt as you are doing….at least outside of the PF sphere. I do think that it’s a taboo subject to discuss for many. We find that when we discuss debt with people we know they either don’t want to discuss it or are happy carrying it. I think that’s part of the reason why so many do not step out and seek help, be accountable and look to knock out that debt.

    All that said, keep up the great work. :) Your story and work to pay off that debt is an inspiration and coming out in the open about it is such a big part of taking care of it.

      I used to be one of those people “numbed” to my debt load but writing this blog has definately been therapeutic for me. Reading about other people’s success in paying of their debt (like you John!) has definately been motivational and inspirational for me as well. :)

    I agree that debt doesn’t have the stigma it used to. Millennials in the US seem to anticipate that everyone else has student loan debt. Going to school is really expensive so the idea that you (or your parents) can afford to get an education without taking out a loan seems preposterous to many folks.

    When I first started blogging I thought I wanted to remain anonymous as well, but I realized pretty quickly that I don’t care who knows. I still use a moniker, so I don’t have to use my real name, but I’d like people to be able to put a face to the advice. I don’t think I’ll ever get to the point where I’m like “my real name is ….” because that’s not what the blog is about. But I want to be able to meet future fans (someday, right??) and have them recognize me and know who I am.

    You have nothing to be ashamed of as far as your debt situation goes. You’re trying to do something about it. That isn’t really the case for MOST people. Most people make minimum payments and succumb to the fact that they’ll be in debt forever. I think that if you became debt free then came out with your real identity it would be kinda punching those who are still in debt in the face. It’s like saying “I was nobody when I had debt”. I think you’re somebody, debt or not.

      I KNOW I have nothing to be ashamed of but I still can’t help feeling like that most of the time. Maybe time will give me more confidence…

      As for the possibility of coming out someday with my real identity once I became debt-free, I really don’t think that’s going to happen. It would be easy enough to search for who I really am but I don’t think anyone cares enough haha.

      Thank you for your continued support always JM :)

    no one likes debt, but most of us have it, and I think that what the PF blogging community has done is to increase the knowledge about debt, and how it`s not something one should hide.
    In Norway there`s a reality tv show called the Luxury Trap (strictly translated), where people who are in serious consumer debt gets financial help from Financial planners. It´s a really popular show and it`s made talking about debt more acceptable in our society.

    I don’t think debt in general has a stigma to it – I think maybe people in debt and that are in the PF world might be hypersensitive to it, is all. But I don’t think it’s anything to be ashamed of – your debt doesn’t define you, and it’s not even a part of you but rather just something you have to deal with for the time being. It’s a transient part of your life that you’re going to get rid of quickly, with all of us supporting you. At least that’s what I like to think of my debt. :) This being said, I still kind of like the quasi-anonymity aspect of blogging – I guess it’s like an alter ego? You can be a bit freer with inner thoughts. But do whatever feels comfortable for you!

    For the most part I do not think it has the same stigma as it used too because who doesn’t really have debt. That is one of the pillars of America. I think I am like you in the sense that people vaguely know about our debt situation, but do not know how much. I am not concerned about what stigma they put on it, it is my own stigma that I put on debt that keeps me from giving more detailed information. It is not embarrassing to have debt, because I know we are not alone, in my case it is just embarrassing as to how we let it happen.

    I think I felt the same way as you did when I first started my blog. Except instead of debt it was the shitty amount I made as a freelancer, and as someone who once had a great job with good benefits, I felt ashamed too that I was where I was at in my age. But, I soon embraced my new way of life and changes I had to make, and was really proud of what I had accomplished and how I created a “successful blog.” It didn’t take me too long to be sort of one-sided with “coming out,” meaning bloggers knew about my real life but my real life friends didn’t know about my blog. Now a lot of them do and I don’t care anymore. I don’t post my blogs on my FB feed or anything, but if someone found out about it somehow I wouldn’t care. I think you would be surprised at how many people find it refreshing to hear open and honest dialog about what we all go through as humans at one time or another.

        I don’t use mine real information yet, but will at some point. When I’ve told people my plans, they usually react badly: “You’re going to retire at 43, what drugs are you selling?” or “Maybe we should lay you off first since you obviously don’t need the money.”

        I also enjoy writing about some of the poor examples I see around me. Everything I write about is 100% real. Some of these people are really great except for the way they handle themselves financially.

    I think that there is a stigma only when it seems like the debt is “out of control.” But, considering how many people have debt I think people tend to be a bit blase about it and may paying off all your debt is the new stigma because people can’t imagine why you would bother paying it off if it’s manageable. And maybe a bit annoyed with you because you’re doing something that they haven’t been able to manage doing.

    I don’t think student loans have the same stigma as some other debt anymore. It sucks, it’s awful and we are in this together. I am right there with you about the anonymous/semi-anonymous thing. I am not ashamed of my blog, and I am a pretty open person, but I don’t want it googleable.If someone finds me, ok, but I don’t need it out there for everyone….especially when not everyone cares about PF! I enjoy being semi-anonymous because I can speak freely about my thoughts and not worry too much. Some people do know about it, including my parents and some friends. Like I said, it’s fine, it just depends on how much you want to put yourself out there. You are doing great and you just keep doing what feels right for you!

    In terms of blogging anonymously, I think deep down, we are all afraid of being judged for some not so great decisions that we have made regarding our financial matters or our lives in general. But in sharing of our mistakes, we can not only learn from them, but we can also help others.

    Yes, it does have a stigma, but once you clear your debt, the feeling of sweetness and bragging rights that you demolished it, will be more amazing than you can imagine.

    Think of the goal, not the journey. Once you get there, you’ll wonder why you ever doubted yourself.

    I was way more in debt than you were and I had no idea I’d clear it (or not) within my 5 year timeframe. Now I can crow about being debt free.

    here in the states, Debt is normal but no one really wants to talk about it.

    Long story short….a few years ago, my hubby and I had to file bankruptcy….well I did. I believe I already shared about marrying someone with debt and wouldn’t do it again….with the info I have on it now….but you know….hind sight is 20/20 and you really do love who you love and love is blind and all that other crap you parents tell you…that you really don’t want to believe….

    I can’t even tell you how many people were in that court room. I remember sitting there in that room packed full of people like we were there to see Madonna or something back stage.

    What was really sad, there were repeat filers there.

    After bankruptcy, I decided that there was no way in hell I was ever gonna do this again. It was completely embarrassing. 2 back to back job losses in a row and then taking a job that only paid a 3rd of what I had been making and living in debt….because it really truly is the American dream…. toppled me over worse than Humpty dumpty on his wall….

    My hubby and I are finally on the same page and really working to get rid of our debt and have paid of a couple thousand dollars worth and we are currently selling our “stuff” on ebay and craigslist.

    Anyway, soon, you may be reading about us on our own “anonymous” blog… Ok…you will be…but I’m working on it. I’ve had a domain name for a little over a year and have had it sitting there waiting for an idea….

    Anyway….I think doing something about your debt is very commendable. It certainly not easy and takes blogs like yours and many others that I read on a daily basis to help keep the motivation flowing and I’m so grateful to have found this community….

    I don’t think that there is huge stigma associated with it because it is now the norm for so many. The funny thing is that my debt ridden friends chastise me: “Come on, get a Porsche and live a little!” “You can go with us on out $10,000 vacation.” I know that they actually think less of me because I don’t spend like them. I couldn’t care less. I know that I live a happier life.

    Question for you though, has anyone give you shit about your debt via the blog? There are all kinds of pimply, 19 year olds sitting in their mom’s basements that just like to give people crap anonymously over the web.

    *Raises Hand* I’m a debt blogger and I’m “out” of the blogging closet! I think the main reasons I don’t feel ashamed of my debt is because a) It’s all student loans and a used car loan and b) I’m taking steps to get rid of it quickly. That said, I understand why you want to remain anonymous, because I think there is still a stigma associated with consumer debt, even though most Canadians have it so what right does anyone have to judge you, really?

    If you ever want to talk to someone other than J about your debt, drop me a line! As a fellow majorly-in-debt individual, I know what you’re going through. :)

    I really get ticked off when some people judge others who have debt and are actively working towards paying it off. What is done is done. It would be one thing if the blogger continues to incur more debt while complaining about it and making half-hearted efforts but girl you’re giving it serious effort and it’s literally paying. I talk about money with my friends and acquantainces and try to help them when I can with advice or suggestions. I also prefer to remain anonymous and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

    I think sometimes it can have a stigma if it is ‘bad’ debt. i.e. No stigma associated to a mortgage or vehicle loan, or student loan, but yes if it’s “consumer” (shopping) debt. I think maybe people think you have no self-control and are frivolous – and an argument can probably be made that this is true – WHILE accumulating the debt. But when you own up to it and are doing something about it, the stigma disappears. JMHO.

    For better or worse debt doesn’t seem to have the stigma it used to. Many Americans have some sort of debt, be it a mortgage, credit cards or student loans, and many people assume everyone else has debt too.

    In the end there really isn’t anything wrong with using debt (leverage) wisely. Without it, many people would not be able to opening their businesses which then employer others. Many people would not be able to follow their passions and become engineers or scientists who design and build the amazing cities we live in.

    I used to be very shy about my debt. I didn’t talk about it, unless it was with my wife. Then I started talking to my parents and friends. I stopped bothering me because I wanted to be real about it. Once I started talking about it, it provided more fuel to my debt repayment fire. I haven’t been out of debt for long, so I still know what you are talking about. You do what makes you feel comfortable. That feeling may change down the road, but as long as you keep kicking that debt’s ass, it doesn’t matter.

    This sounds exactly like me when I started blogging, the embarrassment was so real and I felt so stuck, so frustrated. As someone who has personally gone from an all-time high (low?) of $46K in debt to now just under $8K in debt, I can say it works. Yeah, sometimes I want to be non-anonymous, but the anonymity worked for me. I met tons of people at FinCon and consider some bloggers very good friends. The public accountability is awesome! But I like that my blog is my alter ego. It helps me hone my thoughts and refine my writing. Keep up the good work, can’t wait to see you debt free!

    I only started to become mindful of debt a years ago. I’m not sure the stigma is still there. I feel that since money is so cheap these days people are finding more reasons to go into debt than ever. No need to feel ashamed of your debt at your age. I have over $150K of various debts myself that I’ve slowly built up over the years, and that’s not even counting my mortgage ;) The important thing is to keep track of our debts and have a plan to deal with it, which I believe we both do :D

      It sure does sound like we both have a plan to deal with our debts. I just need to learn to be more cool like a cucumber like you about mine. Thanks for commenting Liquid :)

    I do agree with you that there is a certain stigma associated with being in debt. However, it’s pretty common in the U.S. and I don’t think that your situation is anywhere near outrageous. And most importantly, you are trying to better your situation. That’s all that matters =)

      Being part of the PF community probably just makes me hypersensitive to my debt which is a good and bad thing. It makes me worry more than “normal” about it but that should in turn kick my butt into paying it off as soon as possible.

    You raise a good point. I am an anonymous blogger, in debt and I write about my debt publicly. However, even if I didn’t have my own reasons to remain anonymous (separate from my debt) I am not sure that I would share my identity and post any financial information about myself.
    As far as stigma, some people think it’s bad. Others are in it and understand the reasons why. Overall, I think it’s becoming less taboo, but there is still stigma with it.

      I agree Justin. Debt is becoming less taboo but there is definitely still stigma attached to it…

    From a personal perspective, I feel a lot of shame and embarrassment about my debt. Hence why I am blogging about it anonymously. But as a society, I think people are finally becoming more about their finances and their debt, which I feel is a great thing!

      Blogging anonymously gives me the freedom to write with 100% honesty if that makes sense!
