Never Ending Sentence!

I took a charge for my ex- in 1998, my life has never been the same! Trying to start a new life, and finding gainful employment is Near impossible! I recently got married, and have an amazing 5/12  month old daughter! She is my world! My wife is awesome in every way! they have truly given my life meaning! Work on the other hand is absolute HELL for me! I worked for a company that took total advantage of me, then cut my hours and a week later my pay by a dollar! So now I sit un-employed and depressed because my wife has taken on more hours to cover our expenses! this hurts me a great deal because I feel that as a man I'm susposed to be the provider for my family, this should not be my wife's cross to bear! It just seems to me that once all is said and done (Your time, being on paper!) it's never over! Hence Never ending Sentence!!!!

I felt your pain when I read your story. Your wife is doing exactly what a partner should be doing. If she was down you'd be pulling her up the same way. Thank god you have her.I know it's a blow to the ego. She knows it's not your fault and your doing the best you can.
I was a fly a** dude when I was out there wheeling and dealing but when I finally realized that another charge would send me away for the rest of my life I stopped breaking the law. I'd just got out of prison. I came home to nothing. I went from fly to a bum. I had trouble talking to women in my situation. I couldn't even buy them a cup of coffee,embarrassing. I met a women that understood. She slept on the floor with me in my apartment I was sharing with mom. I was 42 years old. She took a cold shower in the morning cause my heat was turned off. She gave me a long hug and told me she understood
Our chances of getting a decent job are very slim. Remember eveyone has a talent. Whatever yours is exploit it. The conventional job is probably not going to happen. Don't let society dictate your future.
You have to start your own business. You don't have much of a choice. If you belive you can you can. The first step is believing in yourself. I sarted my business with nothing more then a cell phone and a laptop. I made over $100.000 in my first year. If someone offers me a job today I will not take it. I spent two years writting a book on behalf of people in our situations. https://tsw.createspace.com/title/4144297

God Bless You

DO NOT WEAKEN....let's spread the word. Politicans, any leaders, talk shows, any ideas PLEASE....sometimes good people carry the burdens and it is unfair. I hope everyone reads this and we can unite. This is DISCRIMINATION! email me @isreal@comcast.net Don't give up!

Hello; I am new to this site and have no idea how long your story has been posted, but my heart goes out to you. I am a repeat offender, done some really stupid crap over and over and I feel as if people have a right to be skeptical with me...but you on the other hand only made one mistake, and your still paying for it??? How very sad. I will keep you in my prayers. If it were up to me I would give you a chance. Keep your head up, and don't lose sight of the prize, no matter how bad things seem to look. I must also say that you are fortunate to have such a wonderful, supportive wife. She must be an awsome woman. Good luck to both of you.<br />

I feel for you & I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND YOU. :-) I also cannot find a job to save my life...<br />
<br />
In my opinion, the 'system' -- as disgraceful as it is -- DOESN'T WANT YOU TO MOVE ON! How many criminals look for jobs?!! It's as if they want to keep you'stuck'. <br />
<br />
Well, I do not know if you believe in God or a Higher Power but I do & I answer ONLY TO HIM...AND MYSELF. <br />
<br />
I wish you only the best,<br />

Never ending conviction... I feel for you my friend. I had a Grand Theft conviction in 1982... 28 years ago. Since then, I earned a BS and an MBA, have received a Restoration of Civil Rights and STILL am paying for my crime after 28 years! I currently have no job, cannot pay my child support because I am unemployed, am living with my Mother (otherwise, I would be on the street), cannot repay student loans and my credit is in the toilet. My ex-wife has turned my son against me and I have not heard from him from some time now... not even a Father's Day card. On the other hand, I have strong faith in God and hope he returns in the very near future.

Dude... I was convicted of a crime I didn't even commit.<br />
And now... I'm pretty much in the same boat as you.<br />
<br />
Kind of.<br />

Good luck, man. Wish there were something I could do to help...

Wow a daughter and a wife! Things are looking good. Good luck with the other stuff.
