I can't expect the entire living world to live the way I do. I'm an optimistic person because I'm a doer, I don't wait for things to happen to me. I wasn't always this way, but I have learned in my life so far that "nothing comes to those who hesitate". If I lose one job, big deal, I will get another one. Personally, I don't want to get paid to do something I love to do, I just want to do it. The minute someone pays you for something, they have authority to tell you how and when and why to do it. I would cease to enjoy it as much at that point. However, it costs money to survive in this world. I do what I have to do at work and enjoy it for whatever it's worth. If it simply isn't worth it anymore, I quit and get another job. I have more pride than to ever allow myself to collect unemployment or accept charity simply because I have chosen to neglect the task of actively seeking income. Obviously this subject is viewed by some as a matter of opinion. To me, it makes no difference what a person does for a living as long as it's legal and you don't complain to me about how boring it is. Politicians, CEO's and dog catchers eat, sleep, and shit just like I do. It's what you do with the time that you aren't getting paid to do something that makes you who you really are.
