How did things get this bad that I want to to get a new identity? What did I do wrong? It was around 10 years ago when I started to get into serious debt.
Even now, after all this time, 50% of my salary is going towards paying off my rapidly increasing debts. Honestly, I’m not sure how much longer I can keep this off. I can barely afford any essentials. It’s a scary thing, being in debt. I sense that any day now the debt collectors are going to be forcing their way into my home, and literally taking away my livelihood. I’ve received countless “final reminder” threats from an extensive number of banks. I probably could’ve kept up with these payments if it wasn’t for this excruciatingly high interest rate. I wish they would just leave me alone. It’s strange to think once I used to be happy. Before this whole thing began.
I can’t remember the last time I smiled or was genuinely happy. Is this my fault? I think it is. Greed has overcome me and left me in this irreparable mess.
I’ve been looking for a solution to this for what seems an eternity. There is one thing that keeps making a reappearance in my brain. I could change my identity. Other than suicide – which is out of the question – there is nothing else I can do to escape this debt.
Sure, it would be risky. But what other choice do I have. I simply can’t carry on like this; I have to take action now. I think I could get away with it. How hard can it be? Besides, what have I got to lose if I get caught? Nothing. Being imprisoned is very similar to the predicament I’m already in.
I really do think this is what I need to do. The pros outweigh the cons in this situation. If I were to change my identity, surely my life would dramatically improve. No more debt. I’d be free to be myself again, something I’ve been unable to do for years. I could get my career back on track, and more importantly, be able to keep the money I earn instead of giving half of it to a virtual stranger.
Surely this is the only way to go. I can’t think of another solution. If I can pull this off, and I’m sure I will, I can finally go back to being happy again.
I guess there are a few problems to overcome before I make any hasty decisions. First off, where on earth would I acquire the necessary items to successfully change my identity? I don’t have any criminally minded acquaintances, and honestly don’t know where I’d find one. I’ll have to find a way…
