Let's face it....times are hard. Millions of people have lost their jobs because of the state of the economy. Some are very fortunate to have employment while those have lost theirs. Losing a job is no doubt a hard hit in many ways. Your confidence is down. Your finances are challenged. One sometimes get discouraged from looking for jobs after awhile due to constant unresponsive resume submittals. Through it all though, we learn to be still live and make it through until things pick up again. Until you get that job with the salary and benefits you seek. U may start collecting unemployment, come up with a side gig to pay the rent or a combination of both.
Women put so much pressure on wanting to find a working man, which we should seeing as how he is supposed to be in a position to be the head or at least working toward it. This appears to be more acceptable but I have heard many brothers cut off a woman instantly when he finds our she isn't working. She may unemployed but she is holding it together. She's stretching those unemployment checks to cover the basics, beginning or going back to school for higher education, using already existing talents or creating new ones to make money on the side to take care of business. Isn't this admirable? This exhibits her independence and strength in taking care of home. But their not praised for this. These are still great women who have struck hard times and are in the valley for but a moment but not for long. And their discarded because they don't have a J O B. It's one thing for a woman to purposely decide to stay home and mooch off of whom ever she can or live on gov't assistance...I wouldn't want them either....U want someone with a goals, passion, and drive. There are those women who possess these traits but hit a ditch and are working their way out. They may have just had to start back at square one or step back a few notches. And they don't ask men for one red cent. They struggle all on their own. And do it with pride. There's women with great jobs...mid to high paying salaries, big homes and a stock portfolio and their NUTS!!!! Then you have Monique who is has 1 maybe 2 kids, lost her job, collecting unemployment, looking for work and going to school with a great head on her shoulders. And she's paying her bills regardless of her challenges. Give them a chance too!
