Not knowing what you do, do you not have any savings?

that’s a rather silly question to ask considering the stats on savings.
78% of the population live paycheque to paycheque.

You know what..if the living you were previously making was legal and you were paying all of your taxes correctly then not filing unemployment is just silly.

Being homeless doesn't mean you are more noble or honorable it just means it's going to be harder to recover.
Everyone has had "horrible parents" .
Everyone has lost a job.
Everyone deals with these scenarios.

Put your pride aside and make the logical choice that puts you in the best chance to getting your career moving forward again.

Are staying with your parents that bad? It doesn’t have to be forever, just temporary, til you can save up enough to move, hopefully buy a condo or townhouse, rent is a trap.

Maybe you’ll meet someone you could be roommates with, or find a new relationship.

Either way I will pray that you find your correct path and that your worries be less.

Sometimes these endings, are just another kind of new beginning.

You'll be fine NB, maybe just trust in the whatever-whatever, and see which way the wind brings you.

I know.

Still a valid question, since the other percentage of the population doesn't.

Actually it’s not a valid question had you bothered to read the op carefully. He stated he had very little savings but no debt .

Your question seemed like someone trying to rub salt in the wound.. considering what the op said.

My thinking can be very dramatic and catastrophic sometimes. I always see the worst outcome, and that has been at times what I have had to prepare myself for.

Many of you are correct, that I took a plunge into the worst possible scenario and let it cloud my judgement. The truth is, yes I am swimming in the dire, dire docks right now, and frankly I am afraid.

I shouldn't just roll over and give up though.

I have enough rent money for just shy of 3 months, that is all. That is the extent of my wealth (for those that were wondering specifically.)

It's just hard times right now. I am looking for work and I will have no choice but to get on the dole.

A cup of warm soup convinced me not to run for the hills just yet. It would be an insult to everyone who doesn't have the luxury I do of a hot bath, hot soup, and warm bed.

It's not a romantic adventure, to be without the most basic and simple pleasures of life.

I'm trying my best, I really am.

Remember the words of the wise man:
"This too, shall pass".

Maybe everyday: you could still find something beautiful?

I'm the same way man, but I've found it actually helps me navigate the day to day waters better if I imagine worse case scenarios and cope with them.

Food for thought, have you looked into the possibility of Ubering to offset the timeline a bit? Could buy you another month or two. While it's not the best option, some people are able to be tactical with it and come out pretty well. I live in a city about 45 minutes away from the local favorite university football team. When they have games, the Uber drivers try to find someone to Uber up, and then do local ferrying there until someone needs to come back, they say they kill it.

While it's not football season, just keep that kind of mindset to get the most out of your "shifts", keep an eye for events (preferably with people drinking).

Too true. Heck, after fighting cancer for 3 years it's hard not to see the worst outcome of each new possibility. I keep looking for what's going to break me for good.

I think I told you about my mobile luxury toilet idea, Puber!


But alas, my vehicle is in no condition for passengers, paying or otherwise.



Something will come up. It always does, even if I choose not to believe in it.

What a relief. Day by day and we're here for you.

Grounding with your senses is so helpful during catastrophic thinking: Remind yourself that you are at the moment safe, then breath through your nostrils (one sense), listen to something at the same moment (listening), look at something to focus on (vision), if you can have a candy/sip of a drink (mouth) and even caress your skin/pant leg/a book - use all your senses at the same time. It keeps you in the moment and stabilizes you. This has been a valuable tool in my own life.

I don't want to say anything yet as it's not certain, but damn am I excited to even have the chance!

It'll be a similar line of work, but with an opportunity to build more skills on top of it. It also pays twice as much!

I passed first interview and will have another coming up.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up and stay grounded. But I want this job!

So you are worried and in fear thinking about survival in life... just remember your track record so far... 100%

Good luck with the job, hope you get it!

PS: I always watch this when I feel the fear, lost or about to give up, hope it helps...



Best wishes for the future
