no job is worth taking your life. you are more than your career, more than your income, more than what people think of you. many people have left what they thought was the best situation they could have had, only to find their true calling. your calling is out there.
and do you really hate your family that much?
i have thought about suicide before and came close once.
i now believe that there are no shortcuts. ending your life is not a shortcut to heaven, hell or non-existance. we all have to go through learning to live and love, even if we die. and i think God doesn’t allow shortcuts. it’s like dropping out of a required college course. you end up having to take the same course all over again, meaning more work. i don’t think that means coming back in another life. maybe it’s like purgatory. i don’t know. but i do know that if you were smart enough and talented enough to find the best job in the world once, you can find it again.
i don’t type in caps because i’m searching for my own direction and the wind went out of my sails, but for you i found the caps lock:
KEEP LIVING! HANG ON! THINGS WILL GET BETTER! THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU!
suck it up theres always other jobs, u’ll get another
Get a grip, sort yourself out.
Do not be a coward… raise your head high and solve the situation.
Do you know how hard it is to live after someone very close to you takes their own life… Always wandering, was it my fault, could I have stopped it, why did I not notice, why didn’t they come to me etc etc… the list goes on, don’t you dare do this to you loved ones. Life deals us tough hard hands… Perhaps losing this job is a blessing in disguise, I was made redundant years ago and was so so upset thought it was the end of my world, but then I went on to find work else where, kept in touch with my old friends and made some new ones, progressed into the company into a managarial role!
Stop this now, Wake up and get sorted.
I wish you well
i no what you are saying but this job provides me with home, food, really good freinds wich are closer than family, its the british army and i ruined it 6 years of my ife down the pan, all for a couple of nights on drugs. i know i should stay alive and i sound like a stupid spoilt kid but im 23 and need somthing, but i dont know what
You have made a mistake…. not ruined 6 years, was you doing any particular trade in the army, can this lead you to other jobs outside, 23, your life is beginning now hon, look at it like that, can you go back home? is there any where you can stay with whilst you get your head sorted and embark on this next chapter in your life, come on Soilder I know the intensity of the training the give you, where’s your strenght… there must be so many areas you could go into, fitness, teaching, security, manual labour, I dunno loads….. You need a little time to get over this as in accept and come to terms with the fact it HAS happened…the next step is, well next, now what, and that certainly is not taking your own life, are you also angry at them for not giving you a second chance? do you want to punish them also? Move on Honey you must have some fantastic life skills more than most your age from being in the Army now you got to use them!
You blow your job away & you are so ashamed because you may disappoint your family so you wanna kill yourself !! don’t you think that killing yourself would destroy your family ?!
Life is nothing but ups & downs , You have to be a survivor to live , don’t call yourself a soldier because you are not , soldiers fights till the end , they never surrender , But the good news is you can be a soldier you can gain your family’s respect back , you can get your life back so forget about this suicide idea & be brave to live . Life is wonderful when you know how to live it ( just use your downs as a stone to step on to reach your ups ) .
When it is time for you to go you will go with no suicide , you will just go but it is not yet for you to die … NOT YET .
Nothing in this world is worth killing yourself over, especially not a job. Be thankful that you have a family to come home to, many people don’t even have that. You’re obviously a strong person to be in the army, you will make it through this. Stay strong. Keep in mind that many people love you regardless of rather you have a job or not. Turn to God when things get tough, he will give you the strength to get through any situation. This is all part of a bigger plan, God must have a better plan for you than the army. Just stick it out and im sure you will see that this will only make you a better person. You will get a better job, meet more friends and be happier than ever before, that’s how God works. Just trust him. I hope some of this helps you.
kill yourself because u lost a job, wow are you brainwashed or what
you need to quit being so d%%# selfish is what you need . Th only thing more selfish than addiction ( its not a disease its a CHOICE- leukemia is a disease- ask my kid ) is suicide . How dare you rip the heart out of everyone who loves you and leave them forever with the knowledge that they mattered less to you than uniform and a paycheck!!! you must hate your mother and if you have a child congratulations on handing them the #1 cause of drug addiction and crime in juveniles ( parental abandonment/ addiction/ abuse) - self absorbed is a fun hobby but really does not work as a lifestyle choice- make a new one .
Right now i should feel so sorry for you ,but im half way near sorry for you ,you are a selfish person(i dont know if its because your stressed) .Your talking about killing your self and you know how much it will hurt your family and you dont care ,a job can be replaced and you want to kill yourself over that.What if everyone went around killing themselves how would that make you feel.What about people who lose relative,who loose daughters and sons and their jobs also and all kind of unfortunate events happen to them and they dont kill themselves and you loose justttt your job and you want to kill yourself .You need a reality check ,go out and find yourself another job thats the answer it may suck now because you lost somthing but thing like tose happen ,but what you want to do over this event is not worth it and its also a sin.Dont be stuck in that phase move on to new and better things,if you have such courage to kill yourself you have the courage to get up,move on and be productive and find yourself a new job.
There are other jobs. Don’t ever make the mistake of mixing up your identity with your position. Even if your last job was as King of England, you’ve got to remember that there are millions of people who have led perfectly contented and worthwhile lives without being King of England. Or without being publisher of the London Times or without starring in My Fair Lady on Broadway or without being the principal of the high school you attended. In other words, no matter how good or fun or special the job was, it’s not the only one–and it’s not your SELF.
Now take your precious SELF and figure out what she or he would like to do next and CAN do next, then do your best to attain that position, enjoy it and keep it. Hopefully you learned your lesson about drugs. If you’ve read my posts, you must know what I am going to say next: You can’t do very much about the past, but the future is very much in your hands. Make it a good one.
sounds like my life 3 weeks ago. I was fired from what was potentially the best job I have ever had, and it was my fault. There were so many negative things going through my head, I hated myself and I hated how disappointed I was with myself and how the rest of the world must view me. But loosing a job is no reason to want to end your life, nothing is. You know how many people get fired from their jobs and have moved on. Me being on of them. I have yet to find a job and it really sucks, because that means that I have to sit here and think about how I got here. BUT I am on the verge of getting what could be the “best” job ever. If I get this job I am up for, then getting fired was the best thing ever. A believer or not but sometimes things happen for reason and I don’t say that often. But there is a reason why you posted this, and it was to get help and healthy support along with healthy criticism. Move on with a positive attitude, what happened, happened. There is never any good that comes from dwelling in the past, even if that past was 2 minutes ago. We have to move on in our lives and learn from our mistakes and become better people.
good perspective, nikki, maybe in three weeks alot of us won’t feel like sh**
I can’t find the great job to lose & I have one MA and almost have another, on top of that, I have experience in my field, and nobody will hire me - I came close to a great state job and the investigator that looked into my background stated I did not cooperate - not cooperate - yeah, that was my dream job, why would I not cooperate! I have over $100,000 in student loans, own nothing, am being supported by my parents at my mid-30s and live in my boyfriend’s house where I contribute nothing - WORTHLESS IS ALSO I AM!
It is not true that “nobody” will hire you. Sometimes a job search can take awhile, but someone will hire you.
This comes up a lot with my son, who has a juvenile record but is a fabulous adult. Every once in a while a prospective employer will have the power to get into his “sealed” file, and–boing!–tell him he can’t have the job because of his past. And it’s true that a LOT of doors will be closed to him because of foolish things he did back when. He can’t get into the military, for example, and he can’t get certain other government jobs. But is is 100 percent NOT true that “nobody” will hire him, any more than it’s true that “nobody” will hire you. Keep looking, girl. You’ll find your break.
(Have you ever met a person who lost a job and never got another one? I haven’t.)
Start again and forge ahead: Failures are those who live in the past even though they are alive in the present. Failures are those who allow the past to keep them from trying. Failures are those who commit suicide by hanging the rope of the past around their own necks. Only failures allow the past stop them from reaching their dreams and aspirations. You are a failure when you are down and refuse to get up. You can start again and achieve far much more than you even imagine you could. Get up, stay up and forge ahead in life despite the past.
Never, never, never give up: I was not even born when Churchill said this but it is still relevant till tomorrow for those who will follow the path of success. Life does not award winners medals to quitters. Many of those who quit are burdened by a past filled with mistakes and failed attempts. Winners let go of the past and hold onto the future. Losers hold onto the past and let go of the future. Winners do not let the past torture them into quitting before they win but losers torture themselves with the past and keep from winning in the present by quitting.
My take on this is do not live with the past rather let go of the past.
You should kill yourself, life is hopeless. The world does not care about you or anyone else who posts here.
theresape what kind of jobs was your son denied
EMT, ambulance driver, physical plant director (of a summer camp where he had worked successfully for five years!), U.S. military–both Navy and Marines. A few places told him not to even apply.
Things eventually got better for him, and he seems to be on a positive track now. So his record didn’t DESTROY his career, but it did make it a heck of a lot harder for him to get where he was going. I’d say the same is true for anyone who has been derailed along the way; the mistakes we make cause our future progress to be much spottier and slower, but you can still get what you are going if you are resourceful and determined.
Good luck, fsxcraz.
People lets get bac to reality God is love and God gave us life we can not under no circumstances take your own life this is unheard on. Just remember when one door is close there is another door that opens. I can’t understand why people think that life is over if they lose a job we have so much to live for God has a plan for our lives step out on faith.

Do it mate the British army doesn’t even seem interested in me I put my life on hold and they can’t be assed to call me well **** them and this life that gets worse every hour of every day.
