Should I Accept the Difficult Task of Presenting a Eulogy?

The death of someone you love is an difficult and distressing time for the relatives and friends of the departed. One of the most challenging facets of the funeral service is giving the eulogy. Being asked to give the a tribute speech at a funeral is an honor, but can magnify the stress and sorrow of losing someone you love. In the event that you’ve been asked to provide the eulogy, it’s natural for your sentiments to be mixed.

To succeed in this endeavour, you’ll need to channel your sadness, memories and love for the departed soul into words, which you’ll have to deliver to your fellow mourners, in a way that comforts them and leaves them feeling closer to the departed, to better cope with their own sorrow. This is not easy, but there was, without doubt, a strong rationale behind asking you. The friends and family of the departed feel that you are strong enough and compassionate enough to prepare and deliver a truly inspirational eulogy.

In the event that you’ve been asked to deliver the eulogy, you must make a swift choice regarding agreeing to the task. A memorial service is not something that can be postponed, and in case you refuse, you must give the family enough time to find another person to speak.

If you do accept, it’s not something you can change your mind about, or back out of later on. Should you say no to delivering the eulogy, you put additional stress on those arranging the services, which could reflect poorly on you. No one can pressure you to take on the job of presenting in the memorial service, however I would recommend that that you do accept. This is an accolade to you, in addition to an opportunity to support the family and friends of the departed.

An exception to this might be if, unbeknownst to the family, you and the departed had a falling out, and you feel so negative about the deceased, that you are unable to honor their memory. In this case, then you should almost certainly consider not attending the burial ceremony at all, and politely explain that you are out of of town or otherwise occupied.

If you commit, it’s important that you recognize that this is a responsibility that will require preparation, thought and practice. The good news is, you can find information available to help you with this task, so you can create an inspiring eulogy that will provide come consolation to the bereaved during their time of suffering.

What Everyone Should Know About Negotiating Their Credit Card Debt

Many people have lost their jobs and the problem with the credit crunch has made it harder for people to get more credit. If you have this problem financially, you may have to ask for some help with your debt. By using negotiation, you may be able to help yourself to get out of this debt problem.

There are lots of ways to negotiate a lower rate for your credit card debt. If your debt has be already been moved to one of the third party collection companies because of lack of payments, it will be easier to negotiate with them. The reason it is easier for you is they have less money to lose, because they probably bought your debt for pennies on the dollar. You will have to call them to explain your problem and once they realize your are willing to pay them something , they will be a bit nicer to you. You may be able to reduce a balance of $3,000 to $1,500 with a lump sum payment. I know $1,500 can be a lot money, but negotiating debt down takes lump sum payments.

The most important thing for you to remember, is to be talking to the person whom is authorized to do this. Make sure of this before starting your negotiation. The first person who answers the phone will not be authorized to make the deal with you. You will have to ask for the manager or the account supervisor. Keep insisting on this no matter what they tell you. If you should strike a deal, ask for the offer in writing and tell them once you receive the offer, you will send them the payment by register mail.

If the above route is too much for you, I have something else. These credit card companies and collection companies will negotiate the fees they charge. Even debt consolidation services will make phone calls to ask for the late fees to be waived. Look at this this way, even if they say no, so what? These companies will waive fees if you just ask them to. Interest rates are lowered if you just ask, sometimes it is just a point or two. That reduced in interest allows you to pay more money to the principle balance instead. You can even ask for you minimum payments to be smaller. Just remember that once you renegotiate something, you have to keep up with whatever deal you made or chances are, it will revert back to a much higher rate and payment.

So lets recap what we have just read. Third party collection companies my be easier to negotiate with, because they bought your debt for pennies on the dollar. When you are trying to strike a deal make sure you are speaking with someone who is authorized to do so. Even if you can not negotiate your debt down, the fees would probably be easier to renegotiate than the balance owed. Once you make a deal, do not break it or everything may revert back to higher rates and fees.
