You should not feel embarrassed about this, but look at it in a positive way that it is a resource for you to be able to use to turn matters around for you.
While there may be a chance that you are not going to be able to keep all of your property no matter which chapter of bankruptcy you go through, the bottom line is you are most likely going to lose it anyways through the seizures brought before the courts by your creditors.

It should allow you to put yourself in a much stronger financial position going forward, and there are nothing but positive aspects to this.
