There are many reasons why people move. Even under exciting and great circumstances, moving is stressful. This stress can be compounded, when you are moving under difficult circumstances. Some of you may find yourself moving because of divorce, death of a loved one, job loss or because you are financially under-water in your home. During these tough economic times, there are many of you who are in these precarious situations and my thoughts go out to you. Here are some tips that may help you through these difficult moving situations.
When you are moving under duress, your timeline may very well not be your own. Therefore, the better prepared you are, the better you will be. Above all do not bury your head in the sand and hope it will all go away. This will only make matters worse. Take the time to educate yourself on what resources are available to you and utilize them. Keep the lines of communication open with your creditors, attorneys and partner. Make sure you document important conversations and keep them in a safe place. Utilize your support network. During these tough times, it is so important to surround yourself with friends and family who can help and support you through it. Take the help. It may be hard to do but remember it is cyclical. Your time to give back will be when you are back on your feet again. Stay positive. It will get better and you are stronger than you know.
