    When I was employed, I felt like a REAL MAN. Making money, buying food for my family and literally enjoying life.

    BUT LIFE is an interesting game! I've learnt that you have to enjoy the moment - for tomorrow may be a completely different day. As is in my case, where I had a job literally a month ago and now I am redundant with nothing!

    Anyways, I have found that people have been looking down on me when I tell them that I am unemployed. They think I am lazy, probably on dole money. They especially look down when I say I smoke weed or drink alcohol - as if they understand what it is like going through a rough patch

    Because they find it easier to sit on their high horse than admit that sometimes people are dealt a bad hand in life and that it isn't always easy to "just get a job".

    Yeah it is annoying.

    I am battling my fight on unemployment and what not BUT it pisses me off when people start giving me respect when I am employed and doing well! Because I learnt that the ones that are 100 and true are those who are there for you when $hit happens to you
