12. I'm sorry you are having a bad day, and that you feel down about yourself.

Let me tell you about a young woman, between 25 and 30, that works as a cashier at the local grocery store. She has worked there for years, and she has (I'm gueesing) a congenitally malformed face. My best guess is that she has Treacher Collins Syndrome, which is genetic. Check out google images of Treacher Collins if you are curious.

I can tell that she tends to avoid eye contact with customers, but I always greet her with a smile anyway, because I think she's cute in her own way, and she seems friendly enough. I know some customers must stare at her and think "yeesh, what happened to her face?", which is why she generally avoids eye contact. I think she's a good cashier, and she's obviously of normal intelligence. I think she's a sweetheart and everybody who is familiar with her seems to be nice to her, although I'm sure she gets comments and stares from random rude people. Enough people believed in her for her to get a job.

But yeah, the no money thing is really tough. I hate being unemployed and looking for work!!! Once you get a job and earn some money, you WILL feel better. Don't give up.
