Try this one on for size. I'm 40. I have two broken marriages, a kid that my tyrant of an ex-wife won't even let me talk to or wish happy birthday. And I'm not an abusive, child-molesting troll. I'm 6'3", handsome and grew up in a Christian home with good values and yes, I did embrace those, so I'm still a good guy.
I can't hold onto a job. I just got a job three weeks ago as a network administrator, two weeks after getting my master's degree in information systems conferred. Then I lost it because management wanted to go 100% outsourced. So I'm back at square one, living with my parents and my credit rating is taking a slide. I owe $50,000 in student loans along with all my other debts.
I don't even live in a town or community with any opportunity. I'm broke. To beat all, I have a great work ethic, I'm talented, patient, catch on quickly and dedicated. Sure, my family loves me but they've got nothing else to prove to anyone.
All my friends have been around the world and have done things that I'll probably never do. I have nothing. Nothing!
And the economy is in the toilet. There are no prospects. I've sent out about 175 resumes without even a call for an interview. Getting a job in this country is a joke anymore. It's got me to the point of where I hear anybody complain about their job, I put them in their place.
So life does suck for many of us. I honestly am starting to believe that this is my lot in life. Nothing will ever happen for me. I'm just going to have to face it. I'm going to die here.
