This Afternoon

I think I might hurt myself this afternoon. Badly. No one in my life understands how upset I've been for months now. I've been unemployed for almost all this year and no matter what I do I can't make people understand how much this hurts me. I apply for jobs and try and get experience but I never get callbacks. I'm smart and polite and I just want to work but no matter what I do it never changes. My family act like I'm not trying hard enough or that I give up too easily. My friends make me feel like I talk about it too much and expect me to just get on with life with no money of my own. Then I feel selfish for wanting to hurt or kill myself because it'll mess with their lives. I don't know what to do

  • Killing yourself is definitely not the answer. And you're not always going to be unemployed. The job market is tough out there for a lot of people and looking for a job is a FT job. And it's emotionally draining and totally discouraging. But there are companies that are hiring, you just have to be persistent and keep trying. You don't say if you are trying to get a job in a particular field or actually open to anything. Sometimes you have to go in to certain places likes stores and restaurants and ask if they're hiring and ask for an employment application. Here are some things you can just start with for your search: Send a note out on FB to all of your friends telling them that you are looking for work and are willing to do X, y, z. Get on if you're not already and complete your profile. Other site for jobs:, craigslist. Look at craigslist in the gig, part time and etcetera section. Life is going to throw you some curve b****, you have to be strong and deal with any problem even if it feels like nothing is going your way.

  • Have you tried to join the military it will give you a place to go and they pay for your education and find you a job . Killing yourself is not the answer .
