My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them.

Looking for work is so hard

Looking for work is so hard, though it can’t be summed up in a sentence so simple. Looking for work means

-Being constantly rejected

-Feeling like a failure on an hourly/daily/weekly basis

-Not being able to afford the luxuries/ sometimes even just the basics in life that come so easily to those around you

-Pretending that you can afford said luxuries and basics in life to those around you

- Not knowing what you want to do with your life, then knowing, then not knowing again

- Having conversations with people who talk about how looking for a job is so hard, when it took them all of a month to get theirs

-Being told by society that you have to wear makeup, cover up tattoos and rid yourself of facial piercings to even be considered for a position

-Having to conform to societies fucked gender binary standards

-Being abused everyday in the casual work you do to get by because people think they have the right to treat you like shit

- After you’ve just spent hours of being treated like shit at said casual job, spending many more at home looking for jobs with people who probably won’t even give your resume a second glance

- Knowing that your dad wouldn’t be proud

- Knowing that your mum isn’t

- Telling yourself it’s personal - “they don’t approve of my gender, sexuality, weight, haircut, they think I’m stupid, they’ll just choose someone who is more aesthetically pleasing let’s be honest”

- Sometimes stopping the search altogether to make yourself momentarily feel like less of a failure. “I’m not getting any jobs because I CHOSE not to apply for any this week.”

-Eating crappy and wanting to be drunk all the time because it’s better than reality

-Isolating yourself

-Sleepless nights

-Just generally feeling worthless and like a waste of space

THE END

Basically, they come to your home or local pool and teach you how to swim! :P

Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.

When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.

The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…

But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.
