For some people Joblessness or Unemployment is just another word from the English language, but for people who are actually jobless or have been in that position in certain period of their life, it is not merely a word it is a unique life experience, or for that matter a more life changing experience, which in my opinion teaches more than it hurts.
When a person is in the state of unemployment there are some things that are bound to happen.First of all for a jobless person life initially seems to be fairly alright, people think that the money they have accumulated in their bank accounts will suffice them for the time till they get their new job, but money is the least they have to worry about.Loneliness, Boredom, Loss of Purpose in Life, Deteriorating Health, Lack of Social Connectivity etc are few of the deadly consequences of being jobless.
Not having a job or any work to do, throws one away in a separate world where we are all by ourselves, we are alone, we are alienated from the rest of the world, though being physically living in that very place itself.We shy away from all our friends and near ones and avoid meeting them with the fear of losing self-esteem infornt of them as people start knowing that you don’t have a job.We gradually avoid going to social gatherings and make ourselves as reclusive as possible thus damaging our Social Life altogether.
Being unemployed takes away from us our purpose of life, simply growing aimless after every passing day. As we don’t have any work or constructive activity to do we grow lethargic, sitting in one place or in front of the T.V. hours and hours contemplating our grim situation, we also go on devouring food at an astounding rate thereby becoming bulkier day after day, some of us even go on to substance abuse and alcohol addiction and to top that all we are having negligible physical activity there by deteriorating our health even further.
Not having a job also snatches away one’s freedom of spending money freely without giving a thought. Often one has to think at least twice or thrice before buying something when they face unemployment.Our hands are shackled with invisible chains that limit our spending, things like clothing and going out in a good restaurant are items of luxury now,we are left heart broken when our children ask for toys that we cannot buy given the present condition of ours, all these things constantly reminds us of our declining bank balance.
Altogether the planet of Unemployment is not a good place to travel to,the very prospect of it should give anyone chills, it is empty, it is dark, once you landed there you are eaten by the bacterias from the inside out which eventually leaves you hollow, although the state of joblessness or unemployment is a bitter reality of life, and can happen to anybody at any stage in their life , but surely one has to stay stable and determined even in that situation as bad time, also like every other thing in life, passes away.
