How can one ‘be’ when there is nothing ‘to do’?

Only yesterday it was reported that the level of unemployment in the UK has continued to grow. This affects disproportionately young people. This is a guest post by Ewan; he wants to be a teacher at a time when funding for education is declining in real terms and teachers are encouraged to take severance. This is how he feels!

I am a 20-something (nearing 30, but shh!) and long-term unemployed. It’s not fun. Not fun at all. When you’ve been unemployed for so long, it really gets to you. Firstly, because the frustration of not being able to progress and get on with your life. And secondly, you begin to learn to accept it in a way. Then you don’t do anything about it, which is what I have done for some time.
