It is amazing how many people, who haven’t been victimized by the bank, form their own special opinions about the ones that have. Throughout this whole ordeal, we have lost so-called friends whose only opinion was that we wanted a free house. It didn’t matter that our names had been forged, it didn’t matter that a crime was committed; all that mattered in their minds was that we were just no good deadbeats wanting a house. I have even had family members who think that because we are self employed that we don’t work as hard as they do to overcome their troubles in life and that our “mindset” is basically unhealthy.
It must be nice to live in judgment of other people when you haven’t experienced what they have. It must be nice to assume that you have all the answers. Walk a mile in our shoes and I guarantee you that your tune will change. Let someone try to rip your home away from you by crime. Let them strip you of your pride and dignity while spreading lies in order for them to win their case. Let them take years from your life and see if you don’t come out a little jaded and a hell of a lot pissed off. However, just because we are ticked off about the situation doesn’t mean that we have lost reality with the world. It doesn’t mean that we don’t have a grip on our situation. It means that we have been wronged and we are sick and tired of people who don’t have a clue pretending that they do.
I would not wish our situation on anyone and unfortunately, there are thousands of us out there…so those of you that don’t get it, at least try to be supportive instead of being insensitive, acting as if you are jealous of us wanting our home, because you have to “work” for yours. For your information, I would much rather have been paying my mortgage payment every month and doing it the right way, instead of being in the situation that I am, but because a bank decided to forge our signatures and we decided to fight, you deem us as worthless and entitled. I only pray that God is good enough to you elite people with your superior minds, as to never put you through this; because frankly I don’t think you could handle it.
