Stop telling them your problems. If they don’t know your personal problems then they can’t judge you and be critical. Don’t have debt, sell stuff. Good luck.

I agree with Pink Ginger about stop telling your problems to your parents. You can figure out how to do this without their help. Yes, you can. You’re frustrated and scared but you are going to get through this.

The other thing to do is to look for a financial counselor. I’ve done the Dave Ramsey Financial University and found it to be extremely helpful.

Basically you start paying off your debts by paying off what you owe the *least* amount. When you pay that off, you go to the next debt and pay what you were paying on the other little loan, plus what you would pay on this new loan. Chip at it little by little.

You can do this. Having debt is stressful but you can work towards paying things off if you take small steps.
