Then you came to the right place because I have experience and I'm about to tell you.

Here's how people get trapped in credit card debt:

Growing up, I was taught a LOT of the scarcity mindset. Like, my life would be the case study for "How to naturally have a scarcity mindset." BTW - 0 out of 10 recommend the scarcity mindset

Instant gratification was a really good feeling. I thoroughly enjoyed the irresponsible credit card using days. But damn it. I kinda wish I would have never used them, ever.

I grew up poor

Scarcity mindset

Instant gratification


That's how people get trapped in credit card debt.
