    The biggest problem with not working I subsequently found is that intelligent women aren't overly impressed unless they are also artistic...
    lol is that what you call it? Being artistic lol

    This may sound odd, everyone else seems to be content with getting a job and working. I'm not, and I wonder why I seem to think differently this way.

    I just can't rationalise how people can want to work from 8am to 6pm, or longer, every day 5 days a week, for barely any money and want to do this every day for the rest of their lives.

    I just don't get it, and I don't want to get a job because this is precisely what I'm concerned my life will end up being and I don't want that. For life to be worth living I believe you have to make it worth living and I don't think my life would be worth living by getting a job.
    Then don't. Find a partner with a decent wage (willing to share his/her wealth, of course) and you are all set. I can't imagine going to work ever again, either, although my reasons are completely different.

    I get this.
    I mean I know it's something you need to do and that the majority of people just get on with, but honestly i'm so scared of getting a job.
    I've been ill since GCSEs and have become less and less able to do anything, to the point I needed to be woken for dinner then go back to bed. I'm improving now, but that's the life i'm used to and I don't know how much that can or will change.
    I have zero motivation to do anything and i'm not sure any more how much that's down to my physical health and how much it's just me being pathetic.

    Given my life experience so far I just can't see myself managing with a job without being financially boned and/ or getting totally overworked. For most people a job facilitates their life, but for me I honestly thing I will be working myself into the ground just to survive. I'm hoping all this will change when my health improves, but I have a huge fear that my health will improve and I'll continue to be this pathetic unmotivated mess.

    Apply then perform like crap at the interviews?
    You can get sanctioned for things like this.

    You should be grateful that you can work. I'd love to work. But it's not actually possible.

    I felt like this too, so I created my own job by starting my own business. It's a lot of work, but more enjoyable and certainly the best job I've ever had! 😄

    Yeah I agree we need to work towards something, but given this day and age and with enough belief and patience, you can get in a situation you actually care about. Money and holidays are nice but you just won't get much job satisfaction in a desperate job. Not to mention you just need to have people you get on with in the work force. Or at least some way, just to stay sane. Really today unless you have skills, you're probably going to be treated like an expendable piece of ****. All the while the profiteers influence the world. You just got to ask yourself if you support their agendas beliefs and can honestly conform to them. Or are you just going to fall into despair? I know the situation is different for everyone, but **** it, i'm gonna become a video games developer, learn to make it into a business and actually produce something i care about. I think I have something good to offer to the world. I think anyone can become a genius if they wanted to be. For anyone who can't do this, ill ****ing do it, ill find a way. ****
