Readers offer comfort to man drowning in debt



An It's Your Times member, Buccanay, writes about his financial woes and his search for the Christmas spirit. He and his wife were laid off recently and have sold most of their belongings.

"Christmas, once a happy and hopeful holiday, now serves as a reminder of the things we are unable to do; the New Year, merely a new month with the accompanying bills to fret," Buccanay wrote. "I am seeking motivation; I am seeking understanding why I should continue the struggle."

Readers responded with their words of inspiration:

"You are going to continue to live and make best of what you have. You are going to continue to survive as best you can," Jack wrote.

Selfemployed wrote: "It is very hard right now, and somehow we must shake through the curves and keep moving."

Captainal wrote: "Just as the good times ended in 2007 and 2008, the nighmare will end, also.  We all will survive."
