Challenging The curse Of Unemployment


Nothing can be more demotivating and discouraging for a person than being unemployed. When, in spite of being educated, one has to knock every door to get hired but still fails to do so, what good can he or she hope for from the future? How would he or she strike a balance between the needs and wants every person has? The tag of educated but unemployed hinders one’s creativity and productivity. The decision making capability of such an individual is also affected. An educated but unemployed person often finds himself in a sort of dilemma. He or she hardly responds to any situation thereby showing clear signs of anxiety and apprehensiveness about the future. Unemployment also affects one’s psyche and often leaves the affected person disheartened and dismayed. The curse of unemployment becomes even more painful when the expectations that others have are not met. This destroys confidence and makes the journey even more difficult. It gives rise to feelings of hopelessness, desperation and despondency. Unemployment has become a serious problem for the youth in the present day. Ironically, it has rendered several genius minds useless and has given rise to a sense of helplessness which no one is able to overcome .         

Almost everyone goes through the drastic phase of being unemployed where his or her patience and perseverance is tested. Only a few are able to keep their spirits high by adjusting to their circumstances. In today’s world, there are ample avenues which are capable of providing the much needed early breakthrough in one’s career. The only thing that is needed is to have proper planning backed with sincere efforts. 

Sticking to government service has become a tale of the past. Today, there is vast scope in jobs being offered by private firms. Not only do they provide a good source of income but also help many in realizing their dreams by assisting them through research and developmental works. One needs to keep a close vigil on different avenues of employment and apply wherever the requisite qualification is met. 

Failing is not the end of the journey, the real passage towards excellence starts from there. Success can’t be relished without overcoming hurdles. It is these hurdles that prepare one to face any kind of adversity boldly. They shape one’s future and act as stepping stones to success. As they say, “The only person that has the power to stop you from achieving success is you yourself”. This implies that personal effort is the main contributor in one’s success. If one aligns his thinking in such a way that consistently uplifts his confidence and morale in the event of setbacks and keeps him going, then nothing can stop that individual from achieving his dreams. It is a natural phenomenon that when one doesn’t get the desired results, he or she gets demotivated. This is the time when effective counseling by experienced elders becomes necessary. An unemployed person should be encouraged and provided moral support by dear ones. The feeling of optimism should be generated and inculcated in him or her so that it would help that individual withstand all adversities. The parents of such persons need to stand by them in their hour of difficulty and win their faith by conveying that they are not alone in this race. 

One should remember that hard work never goes to waste. Ultimately, things turn around in one’s  favour. It is a matter of time. Till then, one needs to bear the harsh reality of life without succumbing to its pressures. Furthermore, it is the prime responsibility of the government to devise efficient policies so that a huge chunk of unemployed youth can earn their sustenance.  Nations progress towards prosperity only when its citizens get a fair chance to earn and contribute towards its development.
