First, personal bankruptcy gives you a fresh start. Whether you file personal bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 in the United States, or under the laws in the country where you live, personal bankruptcy is designed to discharge your debts. Without the burden of debt payments each month, you can get on with your life. It's a fresh start.

Of course your personal bankruptcy will be disclosed on your credit report, so your credit will not be perfect, but the fresh start is a result of the discharging of your debts.

Second, filing for personal bankruptcy stops wage garnishments.
