Being Unemployed

It would not be so bad if I had money to pay the bills. Otherwise, I LOVE not working!! After so many years of struggling and working to try and provide for my family, I am finally getting the rest I deserve, although I do not know how Iam going to pay my bills or keep my apartment even!!! I do try to have faith in the LordJesusChrist, but sometimes, I feel that even He has left me because of my sins. Me and my boyfriend enrolled in school together; he got in, I did not. And now our main concern is getting him there (he has to go all he way to Springfield, Va. from Washington D.C. three nights out of the week). We do not even know how he is going to get there next week!!! It is Saturday and neither one of us have money. He has already missed ONE day because of no transportation. If he miss two more, he is DROPPED!! This really hurts, considering where he came from and how much he LOVES going to ITT Tech. I am going to try not to worry about it but it is not easy.

It's difficult to be unemployed when someone really needs it. Yes, money is a must on these days in order to pay monthly bills and other expenses. Without it, some life may be in turmoil and difficult situation. Man needs money to survive and to get money man has to work for it. The situation of yours will be your light in the decision you made in the near future. Sometimes God will tests our faith for HIM and makes us realize to ask HIS guidance and help to find a job.

sorry to hear that! I suggest if you're in need financial assistance by now why don't you ask some relatives or friends of yours to lend you some amount just in order your boyfriend go to school. Then, find some part time job as well because you could not live by faith....you have do some actions with it. Try to make money online as well, it's no hassle at all. Just beware of SCAM sites.

hi beebeelawson, there is nothing wrong of being unemployed if you can do that without worry and that's the thing you wanted to do. if you're into business or naturally wealthy, then there's no problem on this or on a retirement. but if you do not have these reasons, you should at least find a job to fill in your daily needs and expenses. not mentioning personal vices. :-)

Unfortunately, many people are in the same or even in a worse situation than you. It's justified if you get desperate. But, in those moments, we have to try keeping calmed and to think about solutions which might help us getting out of this situation. For example, could you maybe move near to the job of your husband? Could you move to a house/appartment which costs you less than your actual home? Is there anybody around you who could give your husband a lift to his work? Did he spoke with someone in the school to see whether they may offer him a solution? Did you search a job only in your neighbourhood or did you look for one farer away? There are many question which you could consider yourself. Maybe you already did it!? I mean, I don't want to have them answered, as it is quite your personal question, but what I would like to tell you that we always can find a solution if we try not envolve our feelings and think about everything with a clean head. Additionally, we need faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and patience and we have to keep active. Life is like a combat where we have to fight for all we need and wish, even for finding solutions for our problems. Those problems and handicaps are our adversaries in this combat, but we can win it!

I would really love to work full time from home but at the moment I need my job. I need to pay for my place to stay and my Internet and also I have to eat. I'm trying to save at the moment, but I still don't have an intention to leave my job. I'm also working hard to make extra money online at least I can pay my internet using my online earning. Your situation sounds quite difficult to me but I hope you and your boyfriend will be able to something to all those problems. Good luck and have a nice day

I HATE not working. I know it sounds weird but I take pride in my work. I have been a stay at home dad for the past two years so maybe that has something to do with my perspective. Why don't you and your boyfriend move closer to his school? What do you do all day?

I am the same way beebee. I need to find a job, but love being unemployed. I don't have a worry in the world, even though i can hardly even manage to keep my house.. Things may seem like they are going to get sour but just keep hope. Our father will take good care of us. I sometimes feel like I am left because of my sin as well, but The lord will forgive us no matter what we do because a promise the lord made to us and he doesn't break promises.
