Can't tie our self-esteem to "Congratulations! You've been approved", LOL!

I agree 1000%

Like most things in life, getting there is half the fun.  


Always enjoy the journey and process more than the results.  Once goals are reached, things become sort of anti-climactic.  App'ing, getting approved, and receiving a brand new card in the mail never gets old.

It's called self-esteem. That's esteem of your self, LOL!


Needing a credit card company (or stuff) to feel pretty means we're stuck in an endless cycle.

but im missing that "congratulations you have been approved" message high

does anyone else get a rush from being approved? lol

You need to set a new goal, like getting your credit score to 800+ and all your accounts age! That's what I did and I don't even think about app'ing

Re: missing the app high lol

Going thru withdraws myself since accomplished higher scores and Amex's... Smiley Indifferent

What's helping me now is waiting on Amex backdating to show on my reports. That can take Months...

Thats why I left them for last.

Almost pulled trigger for a 3rd revolver in same week i got both.. That was my sign I was going thru withdraws...

Looking back...Have no regrets except paying cash for everything did hurt my scores alot.

I even got the Barclay's Arrival as a test ( no) that was not smart to see if they CLD me after the Amex's

Enough is enough..

Time to read and change my Goals..

Thank You

My Fico Buds...
