I really am on a brink of turning from a desperate hopeless jobless father to one who once confided in College with suicidal tendency... I, for once in my college life, reached a point of losing my belief in God, and God knows how So Sorry for what I've done... And for a period of more than Ten years i regret for losing my Faith in God... I, am here again, facing an obstacle where I can't really decide what Path Should I Take... My main concern, for the past 6 months, i Am really troubled if what Career I have to pursue ? Will it be in Line with my previous job, or make a career shift to my new love and interest in web based media marketing (which my 2 brothers, 1 fresh grad, and the other 1 soon to graduate next year)... My worries if I go back to Teaching, my oral skills is affected from my accident, but I believe going back to school as a Student will help bring back my confidence and oral skills especially enrolling more for Speech related subjects/courses/workshops... to pursue my Career, or make a Career shift? ? ?

Hello.... I believe it is really true, that God doesn't give us Tests that we can't solve and it harm us... a Million thanks for praying for me, as well as the others whom I know that they have been facing more difficult situations I am into, thanks for all.... God Bless you too...

Maybe you could do abit of both. Go back to teaching since it gives you financial security and stability and take a few classes part time. That way you can see if the new interest is really going to be a good match for you. It is ideal to love your job and make a good living at it. There are many web based companies focused on Media Marketing, could you really make a living at it? How long would it take to get up to speed with paying clients etc before it would be profitable. If you go back to what you know, you can use that as a starting point to build into what you really love. And your oral skills will come back the more you use them and have faith that you will improve! Take care!!

My heart is warmed by your words. As of now, half my time, at least is generally devoted to finding whatever opportunities in the web. But my major concern is looking for a decent source of living. As of now, I'm busy looking for job vacancies suitable for me, and I am not choosy. And my oral skills is slowly recovering, and I really thank God, as I sing Lords Praises, it really heLp me a Lot... You too, Take Care Always. Happy MyLooting, and God Bless and More Power...

Do what you love to do most and don't forget about God ever again. Aim high do things that you enjoy to do then I'm sure you'll get the most out of it. Good luck

I think you just need to have a little break to regain your confidence and to ponder on things. Based from your story, I understand life and fate seems not fair the way you see them, I hope not anymore. You just have too take things easy, never thought of fast and easy rule to grow. Let your interest and skills lead you to where you should really belong. The more we think sometimes and worry on almost everything, the lesser we can achieve. Because by thinking in advance "What if's and how about if's", it will certainly ruin our peaceful lives into a busy bothered mind without action. If you can do at the same time both of your interest in teaching and web based media marketing, it would be much better. Just know your priorities,learn where you want to go, focus on your goal, set a time frame, and stick to your final plan.

I've come to think that... for the meantime, what I'm starting to do is look for what ever job I can do, may it janitorial, clerical, or utility jobs as long as I can find a source of income, and continue to look for vacant time, I mean I've sharing time with my Brothers for MyLooting time, maybe it's a sad fact but I am not ashamed of it... and It Really Help me a Lot for my confidence building... For the first time, I will never forget this Discussion/(I consider this as a Task to mySelf for myself)... please continue to share to fellow MyLooters Your heart warming ideas Happy MyLooting!!!

Hi dweebs, i'm sorry to hear what you have to go through in your life. But i urge you to think twice before admitting to yourself that you're hopeless, simply because you're jobless at the moment. In life there are lots of obstacles that we have to go through, and also being a parent has lots of responsibilities too, we don't want our children to go through which we have been. So my friend, i suggest that you please consult a psychologist, he may be the person who is in the position to help you and also have faith in God, we all know how God works mysteriously for us and benefits us.Just keep praying, i'm sure God will show you the path to success. Thank you.

Consulting a psychologist is way beyond the issue... Maybe, you got me misunderstood, I'm 100% psychologically stable... hahaha... Hope you don't mind, so sorry for my inappropriate statement... my friend thank you for your concerns, and i take as a complement, for the advice, two thumbs up... May god Bless Us All, Always...
