Sokun,My name is XXXXX XXXXX X would like to help. I have helped other JA customers in tough situations.I understand if you would still like to continue with patience however I am also available to help.Simply let me know. If I am away from the computer you can request me specifically and I will get back to you as soon as I get back to a computer.I am sorry to hear about the rough spot you are in, let me know how I can help.
Hi Mike yeah can i get help from you.
Hi Sokun, I am glad we can actually work together.I read here that you are concerned with your wife making accusations but also that you had some issues with work that stressed you out. Why don't you tell me what some of your fears are with the mistakes you mention and things like that so I can get an idea of the picture of the situation. I am also curious to your job and family situation that is causing you stress. I am ready for any and all detail you are comfortable sharing.
basically i just find it hard to get along with my wife. She's the only one working and i feel useless sometimes. I want to work but can't find a job yet.
Sokun, I just wanted to double check and make sure you were satisfied with your correspondence with Patience and to make sure you are still comfortable working with me. I see that you accepted her chat with you - just wanted to be sure.In regards XXXXX XXXXX wife - what are her feelings of you unable to find work currently?Many economies are in a rough spot right now, even and especially in the some of the specialized trades. You shouldn't at all feel worthless because you are not. Its a very rough situation to be without work or to be limited on work especially when you want to work so bad. There are MILLIONS and MILLIONS of people who are in the same situation, trying to find any sort of work in a myriad of different places and economic situations. Unfortunately its becoming a product of our time so you absolutely need to know its not your fault you can't find work.The other part to this is that your wife really needs to understand the situation and if not someone needs to be able to show her what is really going on. I have heard and experienced a lot of different issues with couples and even friends where one person is out of work, simply because their company or job had to downsize, but the other person simply didn't understand - they thought it was a motivation and initiative thing but it truly was a no work available situation. The one couple I knew, the man had a master's degree but couldn't even get hired by a local store to work the over night shelf stocking shift...the girl obviously thought that was a lie, but there was truly just no fit for him. So as long as you are doing your part regularly to find work - then you are more than good, and you just need to realize unfortunately its VERY common in today's age. If you're not looking, make sure you maximize your time and do your part and I can tell you that even IF you don't find work, as long as you have looked hard, you're going to feel better. Your wife needs to better understand the situation and understand that you actually would rather work and if the roles were reversed you would be just as supportive until she got back on her feet.To touch on your fears of making mistakes - thats completely normal(the fear) but so is making mistakes, we are all human. The one thing you need to do is actually learn from the mistake, even if it happens every so often. Some things are completely out of people's control but as long as a lesson is learned as to why the mistake happened, either on how to prevent recurrence in the future or for the next time the way to actually repair the situation(no matter how minor or major) thats the important thing. I make mistakes daily, every single day. Today for example I left 2 very important things at home that I absolutely needed to bring in to work - the lesson: double check and write down my things not to forget - the fix - I took my lunch at 1030 to go pick them up. Definitely reinforcement on both parts with that. You can't let mistakes get you down at all, all you need to do is learn from them - its what we have done since we were children.
