Go “F” Yourself Life Insurance

go fund yourself life insurance

Have you ever thought about what would happen to your family if you were to die unexpectedly?

Many people avoid thinking about life insurance, but not having it can be devastating for the loved ones you leave behind.

I had an epiphany recently when I received a GoFundMe request to donate to a young family who lost their breadwinner. This person did not have life insurance.

It’s a terrible situation, but I wonder how this happens repeatedly. Why are people who need life insurance not buying it?

I have some thoughts that I share throughout this article…you may not like what you read.

If you are overly sensitive, you definitely want to skip this article.

Still here? Okay, you’ve been warned.

Why Do People Ignore the Importance of Life Insurance?

Too harsh? Get over yourself.

I’m calling out the people who choose not to protect their spouse and family with life insurance.

But, hey, if it makes you feel better, you’re not alone. There are lots of people just like you in the United States.

LIMRA and Life Happens estimate that number to be 100 million Americans.

Okay, maybe they were more diplomatic in their word choice, but one message in their annual study is that too many Americans don’t have life insurance or don’t have enough life insurance.

And while LIMRA, Life Happens, and every single life insurance company out there have a similar message, that doesn’t work for you.

You need a special appeal that strips away your excuses, hits you right in the face, and tells you exactly what YOU do to your family when you screw them over forever.

If you’re bristling now, it’s only getting more pointed from here.

You can help your family right now if you like.

The Harsh Realities of Not Having Life Insurance

Not protecting your family with life insurance may be the most selfish thing you ever do. 

Do you know why?

Because your survivors don’t get a vote.

Your spouse, partner, kids, parents, family, friends, neighbors, coaches, teachers.

Even your dog is stuck with your choice long after you die!

But that’s okay. Everything will magically work out.

The rest of the world will take over your responsibility when you die.

Think About Your Family

The worst part about leaving your family without life insurance is the mess that you create.

And while your friends and family can’t believe you didn’t have life insurance…your death may do some good by prompting your friends and family to get their own life insurance.

Congratulations, I guess. Unfortunately, the family that needed life insurance the most (YOURS) – is screwed.

Are you a visual person? Imagine this.

About six months after your departure, the cold, hard truth sets in for the ones you left behind.

Remember that rule of thumb to put six months’ savings away for a rainy day – We both know you didn’t do that either.

Your partner probably cries daily, but now that sadness starts turning to anger because reality is setting in.

Friends and family calls are less frequent, meals from friends have stopped, and everyone else has returned to their daily routines, but not your family.

Your partner (the one you abandoned) is packing up the house, telling the kids everything will be okay, but we all know it’s not okay.

But you can change your family’s destiny right now if you want to. You can be a superhero today and start life insurance in about twenty minutes.

But, Nope, you still resist…you’re more willing to protect that car of yours but only because the state makes you buy car insurance.

What are you thinking?

Do you expect your partner to get a SugarMomma or SugarDaddy after you die?

GoFundMe Isn’t a Substitute for Life Insurance

Congratulations! You made a choice even when you didn’t. Once it’s too late, your family’s future is written in stone.

They haven’t dug your grave yet, and everyone is whispering that they heard you didn’t have life insurance.

The confirmation comes in the form of a GoFundMe message that your siblings, inlaws, parents, or best friend probably wrote.

The perfect Pulitzer Prize-worthy message that pulls on the heartstrings to get that money rolling in.

It will have a nice picture of you smiling with your family right before you screwed them.

Here’s a GoFundMe reality:

Look at how much money is raised for situations like yours, and you will see the answer is:

Not Much. People are great and have the best intentions, but GoFundMe isn’t enough.

GoFundMe recently said they raise $330 million annually for an estimated 125,000 funeral fundraisers.

That averages $2,640 per memorial. You better buy shovels or lottery tickets.

Why would anyone else care if you didn’t care enough about your family to get life insurance?

Think about this – If you made $50,000 yearly and your family needs that money for ten years after you die, that’s $500,000.

Do you foolishly think your partner can raise $500,000 on GoFundeMe to replace your income?
