My life's mission is to help the unemployed, especially those facing debt. I currently work in default averson as part of my job description. When I talk about my work description I am still hearing about a lot of silliness of people buying high-priced items. Usually the stories are about those who have yet to experience the economic downturn,or who are protected from the deep recession by salary (which I am not speaking about just civilians either). What gets me the most is when people spend unnecessarily and then say that others are in their dire misery because of decisions that they have made. This to me is very insulting because it's victim blaming. (And, I would be doing what I do from my heart if life was that predictable.) The deep recession (depression) is going to catch up with all of us eventually.
Question- When the original question to me was about my job description, I'm usually very quick and quiet. But, I'm tired of smug and arrogant statements about the poor. How can I get legitify my work worthy to those who don't understand?
Sincerely, A Bleeding Heart for the poor

Live and let live. It is a life's lesson that I have learned. Before my brain injury I worked with the developmental disabled adults. I was always enraged at just how ignorant and unkind people could be to others, especially my clients. Now that I am disabled it is amazing to me just how unimportant it is what others think. So my small advice is live and let live. Keep being who you are because you do make a difference to many. Thanks for sharing with me how special you truly are.
