I'll be honest...the majority of the replies in this thread are downright depressing. The other half just haven't thought it through enough to be
People who don't have jobs shouldn't become depressed because they feel "worthless". That's just how society has conditioning you to think.
Humanity, and any species for that matter, is made to work as a whole. However, if you are not whole yourself, jumping into the world of relationships
and value is dangerous. I understand that people need to survive, but you don't need a comfortable income to do that. Is sitting in the same room,
doing the same mundane daily tasks really worth a life of misery and a side-pouch of symbolic worth (expensive clothes, cars, massive cell phone
bills)? Spending money you don't have, for things you don't need, to impress people you don't know.
I will probably get bashed for this, but if you want to live a life of 'worth' without the hassle of a job, then all you have to do is follow a few
- Don't get married, this is a big one. I know people will think it's crazy to stand against an ancient tradition like marriage. But the fact is if
you want a life on uncertainty, and want to reach out to more people, then don't commit yourself to a lifestyle. Once a man or woman loses their
motivation to impress the opposite sex they will naturally get depressed. And if you are married and have kids, then you should never lose focus on
raising your children.
- Take a survival class. Learn how to survive in any situation, how to defend yourself, sleep in a tree and kill your food. I guarantee you that the
depression rates for uncivilized people were probably non existent. But the fact is, if you can defend and rely on yourself than you are safer than
any uptight millionaire.
- Help people for the right reasons. The sad truth is, probably 75-80% of people donate and help people so they can experience their own personal
endorphine rush. Would you be willing to trade spots with a cancer patient so they won't have to suffer? That's what it really means to reach out.
Would you help out a homeless person before you helped out a suicidal has-been-millionaire who just spent his entire fortune on gambling, drugs, and
sex? If so, then you are one of than you don't know what it means to really help somebody.
-Never stop learning and developing your skills. Go to college and get a degree with worth to the soul instead of worth to the wallet. And don't tell
me college is too expensive...I was given $2,000 in financial aid just to attend college. That is, all my classes paid for, plus $2,000 for my
personal use. And I come from a middle-class family. 90% of people are just too lazy to go through the processes. You can try to help all you want,
but the sad truth is, no one will listen to you unless you have credibility.
-And finally, realize you are the dumbest organism on planet Earth. How many wolves, insects, fish have to question their worth? Are the cells that
you are composed of complaining about their job or psyche? Could any amount of human technology ever wipe out the entire bacteria on population on
Earth? Face it, we are just the face on the puzzle...we don't put anything together. So there is no point in questioning an image.
