After denial – anger typically sets in. Again, even if you are an investor who is underwater, this applies to you as well…
Anger is typically the next emotion. You have accepted the fact that you are facing financial hardship and are mad at the world because of it.
When people (or investors who saw your name in the foreclosure files) ask you what is going on or what they can do to help, you say things like:
Ø Get off my property
Ø Stay away from here
Ø I’ll call the cops
Ø You’re such a jerk coming to my house
Ø Stop bothering me
Ø Who do you think you are getting into my personal business
Ø What makes you so different
Ø I’m a good person, why is this happening to me
Ø I didn’t do anything to deserve this
Typically with anger, you respond in an argumentative manner whenever anyone tries to find out what is happening. Deep inside you are mad at the world as well as being terribly embarrassed over things. As with denial, it is common to go from one emotion to the next. You may feel anger for a while, you figure out a possible solution, it falls apart and – bam – the anger comes back.
You see neighbors or family members who seem to have everything going in their direction and you feel angry about it – “why are you having all these problems and they aren’t, you’re a good person, why is this happening to you” – it is completely normal to have these feelings. That’s why they call it anger.
Take comfort in knowing that this too shall pass.
