Bereavement is definitely one of the most difficult times to deal with. Nobody can prepare you for the pain and the grief that you’re going to feel. It’s a time where you just want to get everything out of the way with, so you can forget about the sadness of the burial day. The financial cost of burials can sometimes be so high, so it’s important to make sure you’re going with a company who is going to support your needs, whilst not charging you a fortune. There are also charities who support families in need to make sure their loved ones can have the burial they deserve. Keep the service short and sweet, and make the wake about celebration rather than mourning. It’s the easiest way to get through the day.
When You Can’t Work Anymore
Not being able to work when you have done all your life is soul-crushing. To us now, it might seem like a dream to not be able to go to work again. But it takes away so much independence, and it’s most likely going to be off the back of a health issue if you find yourself out of work. There are avenues for financial support. Your current employer will give you your pension early, and the state can help you financially. You should also look at ways that you could make money from home, such as with blogging.
One Thing After Another
It might not be one thing that’s causing your difficult time. It might just be one thing after another, such as a broken car, something going wrong in your home etc. It can leave a sour taste in your mouth, but it’s important to pick your head up and focus on how you can financially help yourself. Make cutbacks, use coupons, cancel subscriptions. If your financially struggling, it might be because you filled your life with too many outgoings, to begin with! You can then build some savings up, and be able to tackle problems that require fixing, with more money!
