  1. Debt has always been the result when there is a lack of money and a situation when spending money is a must. It can solve problems at the moment but create a lot in the future. But it also gives more time to prepare to solve the problems in the future like paying on the installment basis. This way the burden of paying large sum of money is lessen. If possible, all options, all alternatives should be considered first and only resort to debt when out of options. This way further problem can be avoided. Learning also to prioritize and having self-discipline can help avoiding debt. Also learning to make debt work on your favor is the best idea like acquiring a real state through debt then having it rented to some clients and pays the monthly amortization with the monthly rent from that real state.
