I had a job interview yesterday. All the guy talked about for an hour was business and how they charge depressed people 12000 a month for treatment. I would be working with these people and I would get paid £7.00 an hour, which is fine, but then why are they bankrupting vulnerable people for the treatment? The treatment doesn’t include medication and is all down to the support worker. I really wanted to do it, but there is no way I am participating in a company that takes advantage of people, takes all their money and puts their families in thousand pounds worth of debt. I would make approx just under £12000 a year… And that’s what they are charging one person per month. My whole yearly wage. They can’t justify screwing people over like that.
I’m never going to find a decent job. It’s so frustrating.
"Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t."
I don’t know why I’ve been so fortunate in this life, but I’m not going to take it for granted. Never feel you’re entitled to anything. To have a successful career, you need a healthy dose of luck. And then having mentors: Tom Hanks has given me jobs several times. I saw the way he behaved on the set, his ability to convey respect and appreciation for others, and I made mental notes. Let’s keep the drama in the show, not around it, and let’s all be thankful. […] I got comfortable with trusting that I’d get a job. And I was very frugal. I had a middle-class life, better than my upbringing, until I was 40. I didn’t have stardom, and I didn’t crave it. If I could say, “I make my living as an actor,” that was everything to me. That’s still the accomplishment I appreciate most.
