Unemployment and the Fears involved

I have known about this for a long time. However, not knowing the date of my Unemployment, has always been nagging in the back of my head. Not knowing the future has given me some things to worry about. When will it end, how will I support my family and what will I do if I can’t find a job.


Ever since I was 16 I have had a job. Heck, even before that I was mowing lawns during the summer. There have been a couple times I was without a job. 2 years ago, when we moved across the country was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. Not having a job, no apartment and not knowing what I was going to do to provide for my family.

Worrying About the Unknown

I have known about this for awhile and I have been applying for jobs. However, in the back of my mind there is has been that fear of not knowing, and wondering if I will find a job. Or if I will have to rely on Unemployment. You see, before the move, I’ve never left a job without having one. I have always relied on the safety of having a job, and being able to provide for my family.

The problem is I don’t have that option with this one. I am being forced out, and there is nothing I can do to protect myself. Since I have known about this, I have been working on my skills, portfolio, resume and my online job boards profile. I just can’t stop thinking about what will happen if I can’t find one.

There is Hope

One thing that gives me hope is the national Unemployment rate is lower than it has been in years.  As  well as,

approximately 103,000 jobs were created in March 2018.

This gives me hope that it won’t be as hard as I think to find a job.
