What should I do? Something is clearly holding me back. Previously it was my health, but now i'm fine I just kind of lack courage. I don't want to feel inadequate, or useless. And I don't want to be treated bad by people. Like being ordered around in public when you're a grown man like some kind of slave.. what's the point? I'm not here to be danced around like a bear on a chain.

I'll do good honest work, I'm fine with that - but that's not what people want. People want to feed their owns ego's and use you for that reason. Well you can't pay me 10 million pound an hour for that. Go find another monkey.

Everyone's got to start at the bottom, get on the career ladder then apply for better jobs from a position of strength.

Maybe take on some training. An apprenticeship in something you're interested in, maybe?

All my apprenticeship applications have been unsuccessful and I haven't received any feedback for why. (ie I've lost hope)

That may just be due to the amount of places that are available compared to the amount of applicants. Keep trying.

I might be mistaken but don't these countries usually have lower priced items? You can't sell anything if no one can afford it.
