This is an open letter addressed to unemployment. It’s my way of giving an expression to my thoughts (and anxieties) on unemployment. If you can relate to the contents of the letter, you’ll know that ‘you’re not alone‘ & I shall know the same as well.
Why are you such a drag? Why won’t you budge your stubborn self out of my way and away from my life?
I don’t mean to be harsh with you, I’m only trying to be honest with you. Ever since you announced your presence in my life, all I’m left with is harsh realities of life!
My mind has become a factory that produces only thoughts that has you and only you as the central theme.
Whenever I gather the courage to go out in public, you clung tightly by my side. Even the unintentional and quite innocent gaze thrown towards me will make me regret my existence at that point in time!
You ask me why I make such a fuss about you being here in my life? You say, it’s only for a while, may be for a little longer, in any case not at all a permanent thing!
In my defense, you have made me bother about you because you make me bother about myself. You make me feel as if everything is my fault.
You make me think, may be some of those people are right, those who say I am not quite active or skilled enough for a job. And, may be I’m those things, but is there nothing more to me than my flaws?
See what you do to me? You make me doubt myself and you make me feel weak in the knees! I can’t stand on my own two feet with weak knees. Can I?
So, you have got to budge out of my way and away from my life. You do understand, my dear old friend!
Let us part our ways on a learning curve on the road in this journey of life. And let us never be bitter with each other for we have known each other too well for too long.
Don’t want to be your’s forever,
An Educated Unemployed
