Men Feel Deep Shame in a Fruitless Job Search

Hi George! It is a pleasure subscribing to your tube channel. You have lifted my spirits. I've been so down these last couple of days. I've been so depressed. To be honest with you I hate this world and everyone in it. As I write to you,my eyes are tearing up Im hurting. I know people have worst problems than me. But I feel like I cant handle it nomore. The only thing keeping me alive are my kids. They need me. I wanna do so much for them but it always seems like im almost there to reach my goal but always something happens. i just lost my job as a supervisor. I got "LAIDOFF" as he says. I knew I got fired. I got fired for letting an employee know that the project needed to be done. The employee worked there since a teenager. I guess she took it so offensively that she went crying to her mom,wich she also works there. Then her mom went complaining to my boss saying diffrent things that I supposely said. I got fired for making sure the employee did not steel the companies hours. I just found out,that the mom told my boss if he doesnt get rid of me,she was going to put her 2 weeks in. She has been working there for yrs an yrs. So they listen to her. I felt so bretrayed. Ive worked there for 4yrs and never got a raise. I had to put alot with theirs sons....Bunch of spoiled daddys boys bratz. If it was their fault,theyd put the blame on me. I really thought I was going somewhere in that company. I stood strong for my kids and wife. I never gave up. But I left like they just took my dreams away from me,like they took the food out of my kids mouth. I was ashamed,i didnt want to return home and tell my kids and wife that daddy just got fired. My boss didnt give me no explanation why he was letting me go. But I had an idea......I keep asking myself,WHY ARE THESE PEOPLE RICH?? Do I have to be an asshole TO PEOPLE AND MAKE IT?? tHEY MADE ME FEEL LIKE HERE IS THIS DUMB LATINO...THEY HAD NO RESPECT FOR ME. Im starting to see dark,my vision towards the world is not the same nomore. I just need some advice...Im a Artist and I love fishing,painting,drawing and all that cool stuff. I made a couple of videos. But it seems like my ideas are 2 short. I just need someone to talk to....I have no one... I cant talk to my wife couse I dont want her to stress,she is pregnant. I just keep bottleling everything and Im afraid that someday I might explode. Thanks and please get back to me. GOD BLESS YOU!

Cutting Back to the Bone During Economic Collapse

I and my wife are also living through the collapse. We have a small business that has been very hard hit by the depression (it's NOT a recession). We live hand to mouth and are barely able to pay the rent, buy food and keep the store open. We fix computers for a living.

We have cut back to a point where I never thought we could go. No Direct TV, no internet (a neighbor lets us leach off their wireless connection), no going to the movies, no house (we rent a very small duplex), no buying new clothes or shoes, no going out to dinner (Taco Bell is now what we consider "eating out"). We eat very simple and have even cut back to only about two meals a day and maybe a snack. No bottled water, no soda, no beer, no nothing!

We shop at the local Salvation Army store now. Most of the stuff is way to expensive for us to afford, but some of the clothing is affordable.

Even though we live VERY simply and use as little electricity as we can, the electric bill is close to $100 every month and believe me, it is hard to pay it.

I can understand why people are living without electricity.

Can you tell me, is anyone in Southern California talking about doing anything to turn this around? Everyone up here in Northern California is complaining, but no-one wants to actually DO anything except complain.

I think we should be marching on every City Hall in America DEMANDING that they close our ports, stop accepting the goods from China and PUT AMERICANS BACK TO WORK!
