Dear MizzB

I AM 21 years old and I’ve just completed my diploma.

My family took out a loan to pay for my studies.

We had hoped I’d get a job after I finished my studies and be able to settle the debt.

I’m not having luck finding a job. I have to depend on my parents for everything, and this depresses me as I feel useless. At times, I think of ending my life. Please help!

Dear Graduate

Congratulations on getting your qualification.

Real life can be overwhelming, and it’s normal that you would experience negative feelings at not fulfilling your expectations in the time you’ve set.

It’s important to not allow yourself to dwell on negative things. Look for gaps in your community where you can use skills to gain experience and get a job and salary.
