Or so I've always heard. And today, that phrase kept ricocheting around inside my skull. After hitting rock bottom in my private life, and slo-o-o-wly beginning to work myself out of the pit, I find myself gripped by severe anxiety. Will my past come back to haunt me???? Am I getting in over my head financially??
Without going into a bunch of detail, here is why I am worried. In April of this year, I had a near-miss with law enforcement, due to the actions of my significant other. He was convicted of a felony, I was arrested on misdemeanor charges that were never filed with the District Attorney. I was able to keep my job--working as a secretary for a state agency, dealing with the public daily., but every day I wonder if today is going to be the day that my employers find out what has happened. So every day has at least some teeth-grinding. Now, my hubby is working and we need another car. So, I applied for and got an auto loan--through the credit union where I work. So now, if they do find out, I not only will lose my job; I will also become delinquent in my payments, and I will lose the car. AAAUUUUGGGHHH!
Okay, deep breaths. Deeep Breaths. Breathe in, breathe out. There. That's better....
And so ends another day.
