We go through most of our lives with not very many stresses and having parents take care of you.
My parents taught me young about how to pay my bills and work a full time job while going to school. I've been doing the adulting thing since I was 14-years-old. Although, I still do receive some help from my family when times are tough. But when is time going to ever stop being tough? The poor people can never catch a break.
I went to college twice and have two different associate's degrees. I thought those would help me get into a good reliable job. Last year, I thought I was on the right track with being placed in a state job as a temporary worker. My temp position, which was originally only supposed to be ten weeks, ended up lasting over a year and two months. I thought I had a good chance of a full time job with them or at least a good reputation to continue working for the state. Unfortunately, my hard work and dedication has not paid off yet. No one else has hired me.
Since May, I have applied for at least 120 different jobs, whether it be with the state, financial institution, or any kind of fast food restaurant. I was getting NOTHING! I interviewed with around ten of the places that I applied for and continued to get the "NO." I ended up giving up and going into one of the fast food restaurants I used to work for in high school. They hired me on the spot thankfully, because I cannot go without a job for any extended amount on time. But when does it ever get easier? I feel confident and kick ass at these interviews and they still don't choose me.:(
Why do poor people and the people that are struggling continue to get knocked down? I am in major debt because I cannot afford to live or eat. And I will never get out of this debt if I continue to struggle.
What has society come to? They claim that you need a college education in order to qualify for any job, but I have more education requirements than most people I've met that work in the position that I want and I still can't even get a job as their receptionist. :(
Society blows. College is a scam. People are judgemental. You have to know people in order to get a good job anywhere. And then you wonder why so many people struggle with depression or anxiety...
